Updated with winner!!

I normally scrap less in the summer just because we are out and about more in the evenings...enjoying the warm weather. Now that my husband is traveling more with his job I am going to challenge myself to complete one layout a week (I know it doesn't seem like a lot!).

I'm very excited to get to offer a fun giveaway from May Flaum and Big Picture!  May is a very talented designer and I'm very excited for her new class callled "Camp Scrap".

Here is the info about the class:

The weather here is in the nineties (ouch!) so I definitely feel ready for my new Big Picture class Camp Scrap!!
Ok so what the heck is Camp Scrap? Basically, I envisioned a creative retreat that was based on crafting + fun. Lots of options, lots of inspiration, zero pressure. You could crop, take mini-classes, just chat… whatever strikes your fancy. That is what Camp Scrap is all about. It’s summer so there is no pressure to do a certain amount. No order you have to go in. No rules, baby! Just pure crafting fun. Lots of layouts, also some cards, tags, mini books, and other projects. I’ve created more than fifty new/exclusive projects for this class – it’s going to be BIG fun!
Camp Scrap is a craft-from-home summer retreat.
The class runs from 6/6/2013-7/3/2013 and is $29.
Camp Scrap 2013 is the place to be this summer! Spend the entire month of June scrapbooking with May Flaum and hundreds of her closest friends in an online, choose-your-own-adventure paper crafting camp. You'll enjoy more than 40 new and exclusive projects from May, a dozen "mini class" videos with accompanying handouts, daily emails, a bustling student message board and gallery, and more!
This 4-week workshop includes all the fun, instruction, and inspiration you'd find at an in-person scrapbooking retreat. But you get to participate entirely from home in your shorts and flip-flops (or whatever counts as your comfort gear for summer).
read rest of description here
All you have to do is leave me a comment answering the question "Do you scrap less or the same in the summer?" by Sat. June 1st and I will pick 1 winner to win a free spot in May's classs. 
Thanks for stopping by!!

American Crafts ~ Lots of Pictures

Happy Friday!!   If your interested I have a giveaway going on HERE till midnight tonight. 

Over at American Crafts I was challenged to use LOTS of photos on a layout!  Now that is a challenge for me lol.  So I had just gotten my box of Mayberry and took it to a craft night at my church.  I had printed my pictures and had an idea where I wanted them.  This first layout ended up being almost all embellishments and not paper.  I have to say I really love the fun colors in the Mayberry line! 

Here is my first layout:

Here is my second layout:

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial day weekend!!  And be sure to stop by next week as I have another giveaway planned.

Awesome Find

I'm here to share another layout using the May kit from Citrus Twist.  For this layout I used a mix of the May Main kit, Embellie Kit, and Kit Add-on.  Seriously loving every bit of this kit!!

This is a picture of a rock my son found that is shaped as a heart. He was so excited and said it was for me because he loved me. 

Aren't those orange rubons so awesome?!  They are in the Embellie Kit and are velvet like. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
