Challenge #38

This term is just flying by for me.  Maybe it's because school is coming to a close soon and I know that my scrappy time will decrease a bit during the summer.  How does the kids being out of school effect your scrappy time?  I know that when my boys were small, there would be many nights when I would stay up late because I knew I could sneak a nap in the following day.  Now a days, my boys can entertain themselves quite nicely and I can usually get a page done with no interruptions.

I'm really enjoying each and every challenge that is revealed.  Some, a bit more challenging than others, but fun none the less.  We will be having a DT Call very soon, so be on the lookout for that!  The current term ends the end of June, so we'll be looking for some fresh talent shortly!

This months sponsor is Peace, Love & Scrapbooking.

They have generously donated this beautiful kit.  What I love about this kit is that it can really be used on some nice Spring and Summer layouts, but the icy blue can be used for winter LOs as well.  So, no matter what you may be working on, it's a beautiful kit to have.
Be sure to link your LO by the deadline to have a chance to win this wonderful kit.
This reveal has a nice fresh feel to it.  We hope you enjoy it and decide to play along.  The deadline for this challenge is at midnight on May 31, 2013.  Since school will be getting out soon, take the opportunity to find some scrappy time!

The twist...

Use paint and/or mist!

Check out the guest designers for the month!  Their work is wonderful!  There are some great ideas here to draw inspiration from.  We all would love to see what you come up with!

And for the design team...  let me just say that I love seeing the designs for each reveal.  Each DT member has such a unique style and there is always something that I want to scraplift off of each and every layout.  Just scrumptious inspiration from everyone!

April Winners - Woohoo!

Hello everyone!  Have you been waiting for us to announce the April winners?  Well, you must wait no longer...

I found this month to be particularly difficult to choose my favorites.  I went back and forth between the 2 challenges and finally narrowed it down.  I'm thinking the other DT members struggled too because we ended up with a four way tie!

We'd like to invite all of them to be guest designers for the month of June.  Please send us an email to colormescrappy@gmail.com with your contact information if you are interested in being guest designers.  We will send out the June challenges so you can get started.

Our DT Favorites are:

Julie Tucker - Wolek
Renee Johnson
Paula Flávia
La-Vie B.
And now, our random winner of the monthly prize is:
Leslie @ The Memory Nest
Send an email to colormescrappy@gmail.com and we will get your coupon code to you.

I don't know about you, but I'm EXTREMELY happy that the weather has seemed to break and that its finally getting warmer!  (as I type this post, Al Roker on the Today show is talking about SNOW in the Denver area!!) I was at my limit for cold and snow!  Now that you're able to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, will your scrappy time decrease?  I know mine does, it seems that the summer season is so short that I want to spend as much time outside as possible!

Here's the color palette for Challenge #37:
