Much Ado About Monday

Oh, it's Monday and even though there's no school (insert happy dance here), there's a plate full of things to do. None of which I am currently doing, mind you, but the list is there nonetheless. I'm blaming the heat and humidity for my lack of productivity. I was productive in the scrapping department last week - completing my Basic Grey June calendar page, finishing one 2-pager that I started my last "session" and then doing four more 2-pagers. And. . .drum roll. . .my December Daily photos are now happily in their mini album! And the Bonus. . .I started printing off the remaining photos for my Project 365 '09. It felt so nice to get to those things! This weekend will be a repeat, after I get shipping done. And Kristin, I don't know. . .the laundry sitting and waiting for washing certain smells worse than fish, so it's entirely possible the boys were sent home. Though not before capturing six delish White Bass. I hear they cooked up nicely. The fish, not the boys. :) Now, let's see:
  • Check out Jennifer's blog here, for the cake that goes with her pink poodle invites. How cute is that! I think cake might be on order for dinner tonight. White cake with Cherry frosting.
  • On June 18th, wander on over to Bella Blvd's blog to win an Apron Strings kit and see some layouts from some gals you may know. Don't worry, I'll remind you. :)
  • This week over at Sketch Inspiration, you can grab this week's sketch challenge, a sneak peek of Apron Strings' Sous Chef layouts based on that sketch (a couple anyway, I said "sneak"), but there's a shot at winning an Apron Strings kit there too.f
  • Have you been following along with Kristi's June Journal on her blog? It's a great way to snapshot the end of school and summer break for this year. Once a day photo and a quick layout make a nice way to remember this summer.

Let's see oh, winners from last week. Shoot, no, two weeks worth. What the heck? How did I miss that one? Okay, well here you go:

  • 5/24- 5/28 - Winner is Molly! Your goodie will be in your next shipment.
  • 6/1 - 6/4 - Winner is Deanna! Your goodie will ship with your order; I think you have another prize, too.

And finally - today's challenge; I can just get it in. I'm sweltering here in the heat and humidity, so work with something "cool." Create your layout using cool tones: blues, greens, crisp white, purple. I'll give you a bonus toss in the drawing if you scrapbook something cool. This will be due, linked, by Saturday evening.

Hopefully, it's cooler where you are. Happy Monday.

What a "cool" challenge (grins). I'm glad you got it posted, thanks again for the inspiration.

I have to admit, it was refreshing using shades of cool blue and pool pictures! A nice break from the pinks and florals I tend to lean towards.

Wahoo! I won and congrats to Molly too!

Here's mine using those 'cool' colors!

Cool challenge!!! Using an AS kit (Jan 2010) and recipe (Dec 2009) made this one a cinch!!! My cool subject is last October's snow storm, and my daughter's first sledding experience.
