Another round of survivors have made it through week 3's challenge to doodle and the entries were AMAZING, I would encourage you to stop over to the gallery to have a look!

We are now on week 4 of our contest and the challenge is simple - paint!  We can't wait to see the ideas you will come up with this week with such a versatile medium.

I created this layout for this challenge using my fun Amy Tangerine Sketchbook DT kit, paints and some new stamps I had sitting around.

GDT for June

Wont you all help me in welcoming our fabulous Guest design team member for the this month.  Her name is Carol and here's a little bit about her:

Hi!  I'm Carol, my blog is called Crazy for Crafting, and that pretty much sums me up!  I love to create!  I have been a crafter pretty much my whole life, but I started with the serious hardcore scrapbooking and card making somewhere around 1998. I totally blame Lisa Bearnson and her QVC presentations for getting me involved in this crazy but totally worthwhile obsession. I am very tactile, so my favorite part of paper crafting is the STUFF! I love to touch it, feel it, and use it on my projects!  I love to scrapbook, make cards, and stamp.  Scrapbooking is my true love, because I love creating a layout featuring a photo that captures a moment in time that was definitely worth remembering!  Being a mom to Emily and Jessica is my true joy in life!  I truly hope that my daughters treasure these scrapbooks I'm creating!  You will see them prominently featured on pretty much every layout I create!  The older I get, I have to admit that I am happy and content in my constant state of imperfection!
Thanks to Memorable Seasons for having me as their June Guest Designer!  I hope I do them proud and inspire you all a little bit!
And I personally am so glad to have her here this month-she got to work with the Simple Stories Summer Fresh line for the month and WOWZA is she a talented lady.  But I must say this card is my fave piece of hers-I totally admire her mad card-making skills.

Thanks so much for your inspiration this month Carol and look forward to more from you throughout the month!
