SCRAP AND STAMP SATURDAY CHALLENGE - MAKIN' A SPLASH

Hi all!!! Whew!!! What a time it has been this last two weeks - vacation was wonderful!! We had such a great time with the kids - the houseboat was fabulous and relaxing, I got such a great tan!! And, we swam, tubed, fished, and ate good food, played lots of games (boggle, Yahtzee, and uno for some of the favorites) and just enjoyed our family time!! I will have some pics for you in the next few days, but today I want to share the layout for the Scrap and Stamp Saturday Challenge this week which is to create a layout that has something to do with water - fishing, boating, bathtime, swimming, whatever you want as long as their is water involved!! And, remember, you must include some stamping as well - we are after all a Scrap AND Stamp challenge *wink* The layout I did shows our trip to Maui with the kids where we had waterslides right at the pool at the resort we stayed at. It was such a great time, the kids had a wonderful time!! My stamps are the water splashes that I added clear embossing to for the shine, then cut out! I love the way they turned out!! And, our sponsor this week is.......ME!!!!! So, make sure you head on over to the Scrap and Stamp Saturday challenge site, check out what the fab DT gals did this week, and see what wonderful goodies you can win if you play along!! Just upload your link and we will select a winner in two weeks. Also, we will be making our Guest Designer selection at the end of July from entries for both challenges held so make sure you get yours done!!!! We have some wonderful sponsors coming up and their products are a whole lot of fun to play with - what are you waiting for??? Get on over there!!!! Heehee, have a FANTABULOUS day!!! I will be back tomorrow with a fun new project using my new stamps from Stampin' Up! I swear, this is my fave catty yet - I know I always say that, but, well, it's true - LOL! See ya tomorrow!
