Good afternoon, party people! I just spent the morning going to the Farmer’s market with my girls. We got lots of veggies and a big, HEAVY watermelon that we are going to crack open later. I’ve heard that watermelons are really good for you. Which is good, because Farmer’s Markets also offer baked goods, and I came home with some slices of pound cake and 1/2 a coconut cake. Whoops. Now it’s getting extra hot outside, so I’m sitting here in the air conditioning sipping some iced coffee and watching Dr. Who while I get some stuff done. In case you didn’t know it, Ms. Lifescapes is a huge nerd, and proud of it! Anyway, point is, I’m inside for the rest of the day, and when I’m not prepping veggies to put them away, I’m going to be sitting in front of the computer and getting some work done.
With tomorrow marking my grand opening for my July spot at the Digichick (squee!), as the end of my big Be My Guest Giveaway, I thought today would be a great day to post a few different blog entries, all on the same day! This way, those who are interested can comment on all of the blog posts and improve your chances of winning coupon codes! Who knows, you might win several! Also, remember, one lucky poster will win everything I release in July!
Also, turns out I have ONE MORE FREEBIE for you today, which I’m going to throw in at some point. But I’m not sure when! So be on the lookout!
The other day, I asked my Facebook fans if I could get some volunteers to make sample layouts, and I could not be happier with the awesome response I got. These ladies rocked my templates way, way out of the park. Wait, can you rock something out of the park? Whatever, they did. You’ll see.
First, I’m going to show you what Margrethe did with my No Scrubs template. She’s a paper scrapper! I was super excited to see how my stuff would translate to paper crafting, and Margrethe- just- she knocked my socks off! I told her I want to take this layout on a date and grope it’s knee under the table (LOL). Check it out:

Here are some detail views:
I KNOW!!! It’s insane, right? I love it. I wish I could do this. I mean, I have a tower of paper stuff here at my desk, which I do work with on occasion, but mostly I just sort of filter through it, touch it, and think: “If this was digital stuff, I could use it as many times as I want. Since it’s paper, I can only use it once, and I’ll probably screw it up and then this lovely paper/sticker/embellishment will be gone. Better save this till I’m … more talented.”
But anyway, leave Margrethe some love here:
