Friday Happenings

I hope today finds you easing into the weekend as the day winds down.  For my family the tradition of football Friday goes into effect for the next 11 years.  Every Friday night during the fall season will find us huddled in some bleachers some where (or sweating it out) cheering for our local High School team, band, cheerleaders, and drill team as our kids are creating life long memories that will rival the ones playing in our own heads. 

Connie’s kits make documenting all those priceless moments a work of art and so much fun!  Take a look at the new September Grab Bag that is on sale now for only $5!  All the AddOn packs are 40% off this week as well.

You can pick these up at Ginger Scraps, Gotta Pixel, or The Digi Chick.

Can't wait to see your layouts!

Now for my favorite part.  I get to show off the layout that were entered last week. 

Bekki made this layout.  The tiled look is so cute.  I really like how she alternated the pictures and papers on the tiles. 
 
Beth made this layout.  I really like how she lined up the pictures.   Such a fun memory to record.


Brenda made this very cute and super girlie layout.  I like how she used the big picture on one side and then layered the papers and elements on the other side.

Karen made this great 2 page layout.  I like how she was able to use so many pictures to capture her memory and the kit matched perfectly.  The journaling is great too. 


Pia made this layout.  I really like the layering on this.  The 2 sketches look so good with the picture.

Our final entry was by Zanthia.  All of the pet photos are so cute.  I really like the tiled look.  She always has such cutest pictures of her dog.

  Connie just released the September installment of Project 2015.   I love the fall colors of this kit.

Sneak Peek Sunday

The winner of the Sneak Peek for last Sunday is: ELODIE. Congratulations!  I know how excited Elodie was from her email.   I apologize for not updating last week's post with the winner.  If I forget again and anyone wants to know the results of the drawing, I don't mind if you email.  Please do know that the winner is sent the coupon on the day of release, Thursday.  As you all know already, Project 2015 September was the latest release.  

Here is this week's Sneak Peek. I see apple and a pie.  I'm betting on an apple theme here!!



There a couple of rules you need to know.
  1. All comments are to be placed ON THIS POST  by Wednesday evening at 10:00 PM Eastern time. That would be August 26th.
  2. You MUST INCLUDE an email address where we can reach you in case you win. Should you fail to include an email address, I will not include your name in the random drawing.  Thanks for all those email addresses last week.  Most appreciated!!  Last week, we still had one comment without an email address. There were a couple others, but they caught it and added another comment with email!   We're getting there!  
  3. On weeks where multiple products are released, you need only enter your name once. You will automatically be placed in both random drawings to win. 
I know everyone is concerned about junk mail and spam.  Feel free to enter your emails in the following fashion:  coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com      Use parenthesis and words in place of the usual signs. 


I'll update this post after the drawing on Wednesday evening for those wanting to refer back. And I will send the winner their coupon as soon as possible after the drawing so they can go shopping on Thursday - release day.

And for your freebie - CT Deanna created a quick page using Travelogue California. The heading I see says Page 1.  So I am guessing there is a coordinating Page 2.  These sets are really awesome for folks making albums, I think.  Click on the image or HERE for your immediate download.

Today’s freebie has me singing a slightly different tune in my head than normal for this time of year.  This past winter my students asked me to play this particular song quite a few times. Let these washi tape pieces take you on a nostalgic journey or help you prepare for the holidays a head.  Dannethia made this set with “I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas.”
