Good morning, scrappy people! Today I get to announce the new Scrappiest design team. But first I have to give a BIG thank you to our previous team. Thanks you ladies! It was so great to work with you. Your talent wowed me week after week.

Sketch 26

Good morning! I sure hope today will be better than yesterday for me. DH and I woke up with the flu and then my 2 year old cut his finger so bad with a an open can lid that he had to take a trip to the ER for some stitches. I feel like I can finally take a full breath. Awww.

Happily Ever After Crop at Serendipity Scrapbooks

Why should we let the kids be the only one's to believe in fairy tales and that there is always a happy ending? For one weekend Serendipity Scrapbooks is going to take us back to our childhood when we still were able to believe wishes do come true by wishing on stars.

If you love Disney and Fairy tales and love to let your imagination run wild every once in a while then this crop will be perfect for you. Come and join us for Challenges and games that the DT has worked hard to come up with and that all have a fairy tale twist.

Each of these challenges and games will have a RAK and as always we will crown a queen of the crop. Pre Crops will start August 14th with The Main Crop and challenges starting August 21st.

Mark this date on your calendar: August 21st. Hope to see you there!

Sketch 25

It is only Monday, right? Whew! Its been a busy, emotional day for me. Three of my kids started school today including my son who started kindergarten. **sniff sniff** I am the biggest boob when it comes to the first day of school. I am just so nervous for them. I just got back from picking them up and they all had a great day. What a relief. I'll be better tomorrow. I know I'm going to enjoy spending some one on one with my 2 year old, so that'll be good.
Onto our next sketch.

We only have a couple examples for you today but hopefully they will serve as some inspiration.

August Sponsor: Memorable Seasons

We have a fabulous sponsor this month. Its Memorable Seasons! Many of you have heard me talk about them before. They have a great store and the most reasonable prices. Jill at Memorable Seasons is providing a $15 gift certificate for two lucky winners this month. She recently placed a ton of orders for the newest, most popular lines from Summer CHA. I'm sure they will all be available in her store by the end of the month. (Some are there now.) So this is a great month to win!! You've gotta check out their forum too. Everyone is so nice and there are challenges and prizes throught the month.
To get your chance to win, create a LO (or LO's) using the sketches posted this month. You can do them all or just one. Another way to win, simply follow the blog. I randomly choose one follower on the first of the month.
