Guest Designer for The Outlawz!!

Yay!  Tuesday is here!!  I know, I usually don't get all excited about Tuesdays but for the month of August they just might be my new favorite day!  I am so psyched that I was asked to Guest Design over at The Outlawz with the girls over at the Tuesday Color Challenge!!!  The DT over there have been my inspiration for quite some time, and I am wicked thrilled to be an Outlawz girl for the next few weeks along side of them! If you have a few extra minutes to spare, try to head on over to their blogs and see what the girls cooked up for you this week - you won't be disappointed!!


This week's color combo for the challenge was picked by Rox, and she picked such a fun, summery one at that!  There is a little twist which is to add a frame or a slide mount!  Easy peasy, right?!

Had me all ready for some backyard fun with friends and family ;)  And speaking of the backyard, someday I would love to have some gorgeous sunflowers in mine - which is where I gleaned my inspiration from:

I paired this beautiful Whimsy & Stars image with one of my most favorite sentiments by TLC.  I have used both versions of it so many times in so many different ways, that I've lost track.  The papers are hybrid - the ginghams are digital paper by BirdsCards and the white eyelet paper is from Making Memories (another all-time favorites!!!).  There is just a touch of Diamond Stickles on that cutie bee's wings, however, I'm not sure if you can see it!!!

The Sponsor for the month of August is Di's Digi Downloads which is totally worth playing for!!

Hoping to see you and all your lemony-lime creations over at The Outlawz!!!!
