Good morning friends! Today I have a new challenge from The Paper Variety to share with you. This one will be super simple to do and alot of FUN too!

How great is that?? This time of year, it's so fun to pull out those Summer pics and get scrapping. For me, as soon as I saw that the challenge for this week was to make a Summer themed project, I rememberd this picture my hubby took of me at the beach that I've been wanting to scrap and pulled it out. The page just came together so easily after that! That's two layouts this week, so I'm happy to say that I think my layout mojo has definitely returned. I know I missed it like crazy and I hope it's here to stay. ;)

So what Summer project do you have in mind that you've been wanting to do? This is your perfect chance to get it done! If you create your project and link it up at the TPV blog by next Tuesday at noon EST, you'll have a chance to win this fabulous prize, sponsored by Inspired To Scrap...

Your choice of ANY available past kit PLUS free class!




What an awesome prize!! I can't wait to see what you all create. :) By the way, I'm sad to say that this is my last DT project for TPV. It's been an AMAZING year being a part of this group of ladies and I will really miss them all. I hope to still play along in some challenges though and I'm excited to see what the new team will do. I hope that many of you sent in your applications and just in case you forgot, you still have until 6/24 to get them in. TPV is a great place to be a part of the team so you should definitely go for it!
