I've got a couple of gorgeous LOs for you!

These are both from my 16th birthday party. It was my first birthday after I moved to Hawaii. We went to the Ice Palace for a pizza and skating party and walked around Waikiki afterwards. It was my first time ice skating. It was fun, but I definitely DID fall! hahaha...definitely cold! Enjoy this new kit! It was very fun to work with. See you next week for more new releases...another gorgeous kit is coming!

June 18th New Releases

Sorry, I'm just about two days late! I need to get into the habit of posting these things early/on-time. Before we get to the new releases, I just wanted to say that I've been honored to have a layout in the Gallery Standouts for June 19th! Turns out two people actually loved the same LO, its really cool. Its not a big accomplishment but it was nice to know that my LO stood out to them. Here is the LO:

I used Graham Like the Cracker's Island Cruising collab with Ellie Lash. I also used the coordinating wordart for my title. The kit can also be bought as a bundle with the alpha, frames, and styles. There are also coordinating quick pages!

Onto the new releases! Graham Like the Cracker only has one new kit today, but there are two coordinating pieces! This was such a fun kit to scrap with, perfect for boys and sports!

Junior collab with Karen Lewis Designz

I created two LOs this time. Well, actually, one is a card. I made a card for my dad for father's day. I forgot to take a picture of the physical product, so I only have the digital copy.

Isn't it cute? My next one is about a Mariner's game that I went to on June 4th. It was train day! :]

Alright, that's all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed the new releases! Oops, almost forgot. I graduated last weekend!! I have pictures but I won't post them up until I scrap them...if another week goes by without me being able to scrap them, then I will just make a post about them instead.

Hampton Hotel Grand Prize

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

I recently wrote a post about the Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes. In the post, I told you about the free weekend giveaway. You can view the post here. What I didn't tell you about, is the GRAND PRIZE. What is the grand prize, you ask? Well, it the best prize of all!

For the grand prize, you would win a free weekend stay at any Hampton hotel, for you and 100 of your friends. One hundred, did you catch that part? Yes, for the grand prize, you can stay the hotel with 100 of your friends! The grand prize winner wins the whole hotel (100 rooms) for two nights. This would be awesome for me, because I am getting married soon. It would be great to have all of my family and friends together for the whole weekend, and for free. And of course, when you stay at hotels, you have to pay a hotel tax. Well, Hampton has you covered! The winner will also receive $5000 to help cover the hotel tax. How awesome is that??

My wedding is only going to have 75 people, because its a budget wedding. But of course, if I won the grand prize, I would invite 25 more people. All my friends and family from Washington would be there, and my family in south, as well as my friends in Hawaii. It would be so much easier for them to attend because they wouldn't have to worry about hotel costs. And in a hotel full of my friends and family, of course we are gonna party! Since it would be my wedding weekend, I would put together a list of things to do while we are there. There is the rehearsal dinner, a morning after brunch, the bachelor/bachelorette parties. There would be so much to do with the whole hotel to ourselves!

This sweepstakes is open to residents of the US, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK and Mexico. There is no purchase necessary. The sweepstakes is open from now until September 4th, 2010.

What would you do if you had the whole hotel to yourself? Who would you invite?

'Queen of Scrap' is over

This past month at ScrapMatters has been a blast! During the month of May, they had a 'Queen of Scrap' challenge. They had four levels of participant prizes, and I was able to make it to the second level. I'm happy where I ended because I was able to get this awesome kit that's shown above for free! I just downloaded it so I haven't had a chance to open it up and look inside yet. However, I have seen a bunch of LOs using this kit, and they all look fabulous! In case you were not able to get the kit for free, they have the kit available for purchase at the store for $12. Its a HUGE kit and definitely worth the money! You can buy it here.
