Giveaway!

For months....I have wanted to makeover my blog. Time was not exactly on my side though. I have been swamped with deadlines, planning my oldest son's open house and last week we were on vacation. But....yesterday with CHA over, I was able to sit at my desk and DECIDE what I wanted to work on. I *heart* days like that. After I waded through a weeks worth of email, I thought I would update my poor neglected blog. When I signed in and looked at my blog, I realized that it had been 24 days since I last posted. That will just not do. I am getting my butt in gear and am going to keep up with my blog posts. Yep, I said it. And I'm going to do it! lol

After posting about a zillion layouts yesterday to catch up with showing you what I've been up to, I got to work on my makeover. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I really love the colors. So....how about this....leave me a comment telling me what you've been doing this summer and I will enter you in a drawing to win the kit that I used to create it, Simple Starts Kit 1...




I will leave the giveaway open until Wednesday (7/27/11) evening. And....I will give one full kit away for every 10 comments that I receive! So....what have you been up to this summer? :)
Pin It!

Love your blog! You did a great job!! Scrapping, cleaning, pulling some weeds...and running kids!

Katherine said...

Comment, comment, comment!! I have this kit - it's so much fun. So, just to add my own two cents (LOL) - scrapping, gardening, and home improvement projects, like painting. You?

Anne Hall said...

Your new blog looks great. Just trying to stay cool this summer - lots of time at the water park and pool

Christy said...

I just got married! that's what I've been up to but now that it's over I've been really getting into some of the diy projects I've been wanting to do. Updating my blog is also on my list but it needs a bit more brainstorming before I go there! yours looks great!

I have been enjoying my newest grandbaby, Miss Loren was born on June 10 and is a delight! I also contue to spoil my precioius 2 year old granddaughter, Allie. I am just beginning to do digital scrapbooking after wanting to for oh so long. I made my first page Sunday. I have so much to learn but it is so much fun and the page is awesome!

Linda Beeson said...

Oh how I love those colors! I have been looking for a digital houndstooth paper!

Melissa Elsner said...

Yay! You're back! I absolutely love the new simple, sophisticated design. So you. :)

And this summer? I eagerly counted down the days until my vacation. Now it's over. And I'm wondering if Summer will ever actually show up in my neck of the woods. It's making me grumpy.

Steph said...

Beautiful blog makeover! Today we made a run to the library for some new summer reads!

~Amy said...

Awesome kit! I've been busy- unfortunately not scrapping as much as I'd like but on my toes being pregnant, with 2 kids home and my husband deployed. There are great days, sad days and crazy days. But, enjoying the time we do have together and making the most of it. Thanks for the chance to win!

Debbie said...

Ok, I'll try this....really like your page design!! I've been trying to learn the digital scrapping art so I can scrapbook my kids and grandkids, of which we just celebrated our 4th ones arrival about 5 weeks ago. :)
