Sponsored Challenges!

Hi everyone! Where have I been? The time is just flying by... but I suppose that's the norm for this time of year, especially for those of you whose kids have already gone back to school... or (like mine) will soon start. Summer is not my favorite season... I get sluggy when the weather is hot... but it sure has gone by quickly. Before we know it, the gorgeous fall weather will be here and that's when I'll truly start coming alive again! lol

Anyway, I want to let you know about a couple of challenges that TCM is sponsoring right now... they've been in progress since August 5th, but there's still time to play!

First, is the always fabulous Embellish Magazine Color Trends Challenge!! 

You can still play for a chance to win a TCM stamp set of choice, but you must hurry... the challenge ends Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST. If nothing else, be sure to stop by the Embellish Blog to see all the wonderful eye candy, especially this mini-album created by Ashley Cannon Newell featuring Life is a Carnival. Yowser!!!

Another fabulous challenge is over at Flashback Friday!!!

The challenge is to show your first gift card holder! I had to dig around in the recesses of my personal blog to find my own, but what a fun trip down memory lane it was! I haven't made many gift card holders, but the oldest one I found on my blog was this one, made in April 2008:

LOL! What a hoot! Not only have my coloring skills improved over the past few years, but so has my photography!

You should play, too, for a chance to win Baggin' Some Rays!! There's still plenty of time... this contest ends Friday, August 26th at 11:59 pm PST. Can't wait to take a trip down memory lane with you!

Okay, that's it for now. I'll be back soon! Take care, and have a wonderful day!
