Which one of you has been hogging the sunshine this month?  Last report I saw, we’ve had 22 days of rain out of 28 days this month.  The other 6 days didn’t always produce sunshine.  So if you’re holding the sunshine hostage I’m ready to send chocolate as payment for it’s release.
Speaking of sunshine.  Did you check out Connie’s June 2015 Grab Bag?  If you’ve been enjoying some outdoor fun then you should pick up the grab bag and show us what you’ve scrapped!



You are down to three days to pick up any or all of the May 2015 Retiring Products.  Time’s been ticking away and you don’t want to let these slip past you!  I did that a couple months ago and I’m still kicking myself over missing out!


Available at Gotta Pixel and Ginger Scraps.

With another round of storms moving into my area I’m having to keep today’s post short and to the point. I want to make sure I get it posted before the possibility of losing power arrives. I hope that all of you are staying safe if you are affected by the flooding and severe weather. 
I love Deanna’s Quick Pages and today’s freebie is a second page with the June 2015 Grab Bag.  I think you could easily make this into a two page layout with yesterday’s freebie.

I apologize for any wonky looks in today's post.  I usually create my posts in Live Writer but all the sudden my login for Connie's blog has stopped working through Live Writer.  I'm using the Blogger Editor and the interface doesn't flow for me.  I keep trying to make it do things like I want and it's not playing nice.

As you head off on your adventures today pick up this Quick Page Freebie by Deanna that she created with the 2015 June Grab Bag!

Have a terrific Thursday!!

Sunday Funday!

I am so very proud and impressed with all of you!!  Most of you had 100% correct answers for last week's trivia quiz.  While there were a few who missed a couple, everyone still had 7 or more. So everyone was in the drawing for the $10 coupon. Seems you all know your Disney Princesses!!

Candy is going to be really happy she played!  Candy was the randomly selected winner of that $10 coupon!  AND it was the first time she played along with us. Welcome, Candy!  And I hope we see more of you.  Here's the correct answers:

1. What princess was often seen in the company of a short, bald, mute man?  SNOW WHITE
The short, bald, mute man is Dopey, one of the Seven Dwarfs.  

2. Which Disney princess lived most of her life as simple, parent-less girl but then discovered that she was really a princess and met the love of her life?  AURORA 
Aurora, a.k.a. "Sleeping Beauty," grew up as Briar Rose in the country with three fairy "aunts." Ariel was "The Little Mermaid," and was always a princess. Belle didn't become a princess until she married the Beast.

3. This princess wanted "adventure in the great wide somewhere" more than she could tell, and found it in the least likely suitor.  Who is she?  BELLE
Belle sang, "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere. I want it more than I can tell" in "Belle." Her suitor was, of course, the Beast.

4. This princess and the man she fell in love with both disguised themselves.  Who is she??  JASMINE
Okay, I know that was a little tricky because both Ariel and Aurora also disguised themselves, but neither Prince Eric nor Prince Philip ever disguised themselves. (Prince Philip just didn't tell Aurora who he was.) Herein lies the trick.

5. This Native American princess rubbed noses with a young, attractive adventurer.  What is her name?  TIGER LILY
No, it's not Pocahontas. She and John Smith smooched, but never actually did any nose-rubbing. The only characters who did were Tigerlily and Peter Pan. Also accepted: Tiger Lily, Princess Tigerlily

6. This princess-by-marriage underwent a magical transformation that allowed her handsome prince to fall in love with her.  Who is she? CINDERELLA
"Bippity Boppity Boo!" Cinderella was the princess-by-marriage. Ariel and Aurora were born princesses, and Belle didn't transform

7. This princess was fluent in many different languages, among them French, English and her very own.  Can you name her?  KIDA
Kida was the Atlantian princess who was able to communicate with Milo and his fellow travellers through her knowledge of language. Also accepted: Princess Kida, Kidagakash, Princess Kidagakash

8. Which princess risked her life to save her loved ones and her people from a potentially life-altering battle?  POCAHONTAS
Mulan was the only other character who experienced a battle, and she wasn't a princess.

9. This (princess) lion met her betrothed at a young age, in the first "Lion King" movie.  Then did not see him again until she happened upon him by chance.  Who is she?  NALA 
She wasn't human, but she was still a princess. Simba, heir to Mufasa's throne, was her betrothed. Also accepted: Princess Nala

10. This princess seduced her prince with song, but he fell in love with her without knowing it was she who sang.  Who is she?  ARIEL
"You've got your looks, your pretty face, and don't underestimate the importance of body language," Ursula told her. And it is this "body language" that caused Prince Eric to fall in love with Ariel without ever hearing her voice.

So, what do you say we do this one more week?  This particular quiz will test your knowledge about the Disney Villains. The average score is said to be 8 out of 10 for this particular quiz, so we'll use that score for number of correct answers to be included in the random drawing!   Just copy and paste into an email and send me your answers by next Friday, May 29th by 9:00 PM Eastern time.  Send to coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com.  


1. "I live under the sea and have two eel friends; I will give you your desire if you have something to lend." Who am I?
    Answer:  (one word)
2. "If I don't scare you, then surely my horrible taste in fashion will!" Who am I?

     Ursula
     Maleficent
6. "I am a very rich widow with two eligible girls, but my stepdaughter makes me want to hurl!" Who am I?

     Lady Tremaine
     Evil Queen
     Yzma
7. "With transformation powers and a raven for a pet, I doom a princess to death before the sun sets." Who am I?

     Ursula
     Gaston

Project 2015: June and Retiring Products

Friday has finally arrived and not a moment too soon.  When you see this I will probably be counting hours or minutes until a blessed three day weekend begins.  If someone invented Time Travel would you be tempted to jump ahead a couple of weeks about now?  Oh the temptation.

Speaking of temptation, Connie’s latest edition of Project 2015 debuted in stores yesterday.  Did you check out all the goodies in Project 2015: June?  There are two great bundles and a lot of addon packs that are sure to bring a ray of sunshine to you!
