Well actually it's me, but the name of the contest is "YOU". Every month Coordinates Collections has a contest and this month it is called "You". Actually I'm the one who came up with the idea for the contest and the prize this month is..."$50 in scrapping supplies. Would you like a chance to win??? Here's the contest info....

  • Upload entries to the "Contests and Challenges" section of the CC Gallery by April 30th at 11:59 PST.
  • Put the name of the contest in your title
  • Post a link of that project into the thread for that contest on the Message Board

Let's learn a little something about each other. Please share will all your friends here at Coordinates Collections a little-known fact about yourself. All you have to do is create a layout highlighting what you want to share. It can be something totally serious like a medical condition, how you put yourself through school, religious beliefs, etc. Or you can go for something fun and quirky. Do you sleep with socks on? Do you only eat based on food color? (I have a friend who won't eat anything green!) Are you addicted to trashy romance novels? Okay, so you get the idea. Now get scrapping! When you're done this contest will make a great addition to your 'book of me' album.

Winner will receive $50 IN SCRAP SUPPLIES! Winner will be determined by a random drawing and announced on the CC Message Board. There's no limit to the number of entries, but you'll only be entered for the prize once.

So that's the contest info and here's the layout I just did. Of course I'm not eligible for the prize but I decided to do one anyway.

As a child I couldn't stand going to the beach. I would drive my mother crazy always wanting to change bathingsuits because I couldn't stand the feel of the sand on my skin!!! Later I just didn't go to the beach. Finally in my teens I changed my mind. Now I love going to the beach!

Anyway lots of fun stuff on this layout...Pattern Papers, chipboard letters"Yuck", and butterfly are Pink Paislee (I mixed the captivating and fetching lines), Hambly transparency; Thickers "sand?"; flowers: Prima & cardstock diecuts; Buttons: Basic Grey; Chipboard Circle & Felt: Fancy Pants; Label Stickers: Fontwerks.

Hope to see some fun "You" layouts in the CC gallery soon!

It's a beautiful day here in South Jersey (if you are out of the wind) This mornings soccer game was won, mailed Andrea her prize package from the little giveaway I had here on the blog, put together this layout, laundry is in progress, now I think I'm going out to read my book in the sunshine for a bit. (I have a nice sunny out of the wind spot in mind).

Talk later.

Oh my gosh, our moms could have formed a support group. I was the only kid w/ 12 bathing suits b/c I needed 3/day when we went on vacation. It didn't bother me if it just touched my skin, but I wasn't one of those kids who just plopped down on the sand and I couldn't handle it being INSIDE my suit! FREAK OUT! Too funny...

I LOVE this idea!! And too funny - i hate sand too. That's why I RARELY go in the water when we visit seaside... I'm a pool/creek kinda girl; aka - w/o wet sand! lol
