It's Savannah O'Gwynn today---- and I'm FINALLY sharing our July/August winners and featured players! I cannot thank you enough for allowing this challenge to continue for 2 months! It's been hard moving and crafting out of boxes, but my cabinets will be installed on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week- praise the Lord!!!!!!!!! My goal is to visit everyone's blog while the painters are painting my studio (and a couple of other rooms) tomorrow!

Congrats to our featured players:

And a HUGE congrats to our July winner, Shelly!!!!!!!!!! Simple but it caught my eye! And she wrote in her post that she almost missed the deadline because she was going to share her project the day after the challenge ended! Good thing she made it on time;)

THANKS to all who joined in the fun!

Our September 2017 challenge starts TOMORROW... it's all about ANIMALS! Any creation works as long as you 1️⃣ use and include at least one PS stamp(s) or die(s) and 2️⃣ use an animal on your project (i.e. stamp, die, paper, card shaper, etc). I think this will be a fun challenge:)

Ken Allen, an orangutan became famous for escaping from his enclosure at the San Diego Zoo 3 times in the 1980’s. He would peacefully stroll around the zoo looking at other animals and never acted aggressively. Other animals even followed his lead and began escaping, too.

hugs and smooches,
