Kellybell February Challenge

Ok, so I have been guesting at Kellybell Designs for the month of January and now February.  I wanted to bring attention to her February challenge:

2014 is here and it's time to crank up the Blog Challenges at Kellybell Designs again. Are you ready? We're making a few tweaks this year making it more fun to participate and easier to win. It's pretty simple, here's the 1-2-3s...

1. Read the directions and create a layout
2. Everyone who submits a layout receives a cool participation prize
3. One random layout will be chosen to win a $6.50 gift certificate to Kelly's Store

Sound simple enough? Easy peasy!

Now onto the good stuff... what's the participation prize. You know you love all the freebies that Kelly's Creative Team members whip up for you. This month's participation prize was made by CT member Lisa and Guest CT JulieP.

Just gorgeous, aren't they!! They only way to get them is to create a Blog Challenge layout. Can you guess the theme of this month's challenge??

Here are the rules and instructions to participation in the Monthly Blog Challenge:
  • Scrap a page showcasing your memories from Disney's Magic Kingdom. This can be about rides, characters, shows, dining or any other fun photos around the park.
  • While the instructions are written for Walt Disneyworld, please adapt them for any of the other Disney parks around the world.
  • You can use as many photos as you want and include as many elements and papers that you choose. We want to see your creativity sparkle!
  • Layouts should be made with 100% Kellybell products or freebies (you are allowed to use a template from another designer). You are welcome to submit more than 1 layout.
  • Post your layout into the Challenges Gallery at Kellybell Designs by midnight EST Feb 28th. Participation prizes will be sent to the email address you have listed with Kelly's gallery so make sure you're registered and logged in before posting your layout.
The random winner will be announced the first week of March. That's also when the participation prizes will be sent out.

Check your stash to see what Kellybell Designs kits you already own or take some time to browse through Kelly's store to see if you want to pick up a new collection to scrap with. Here are a few of Kelly's kits to use.

You can find lots of inspiration at Kelly's Blog to give you some ideas of what to scrap for this challenge. Here's my page for the 'Magic Kingdom' challenge using Kellybell's kit World So Small:

Also, I wanted to remind you that I can help you scrap your memories.  Christmas is coming and, if you want a unique card to send out this year, I can help you with that.  I only ask $5 for either a 4x6 or 5x7 design.  Also, if you need calendars or smaller books as gifts for grandparents, I can design that too!

Have a great rest of the month!

June Scrapping

Well, June is now on it's way out and I have some updates on what has been in store.

First off, the June Templatetopia is awesome!  I had a tough time trying to figure out which one to use! 

But here is what I chose to scrap (Using King of the Pride kit... see below for more details).

Next, Trixie released a truly awesome kit... King of the Pride!!!

I love, love, LOVE the colors in this kit and it is so unique!!!

Next there is the very sassy and Diva-ish kit, Bratitude!  Again, great colors and I love the little wordart details Trixie placed in the kit to give your photos a bit of snip.  

Here is my layout.

I also participated in 2 of Trixie's Blog Challenges (every Thursday).  The 1st one was a template challenge.  I used the Best Guy Ever kit.

And the 2nd challenge was a Word Challenge... the word was "Cool."  I used Trixie's Puddle Jumpers (retired), Summer on the Boardwalk, and Blue Skies Ahead kits. 

I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of their summer!  We have gotten some pool time in, thanks to a great neighbor sharing her pool with us.
