Terrific Tuesday!!!

Wow, there is so much to blog about at Scrapdango.  It is already June 15th and L.O.A.D. is still going strong.  The Dangos have been getting so much scrapping done.  The gallery is full of all the gorgeous layouts and cards that everyone has been doing.  It is my honor once again to pick the LOTW for the belated "Member Monday."  Like last week, with so many great projects, I couldn't pick just one.

I loved this layout by LisaM.  I love including handwriting from my children and this is a great example, and I love all the "leafy" elements in this layout about a tree.

This is a fabulous 2-pager with yet another wonderful example of a child's handwriting by our former design team leader extraordinare, Julie (lexea). Also love the handprint for yet another personal touch.

Here is a fabulous card by Jan. That owl is just the cutest thing and absolutely love the colors for this sweet 16 card.

Here is another terrific layout by the uber talented Audrey (audreykit). I have probably mentioned before how much I love banners, and this is a fabulous example of those as well as the super cute cupcake and the adorable photo. And I am really lovin' the light blue, red, white and pink color combo like in the last card. Hmmm, think I need to do somethig with this combo. ;)

Here is a "Fun" layout by Cheryl (chillycharlie). Love the placement of the photos--just like going down that slide. Love the cluster of embellies in the bottom left.

Cheri is a newer member of Scrapdango, brought here by the L.O.A.D. event, and I truly hope she sticks around when it's over. She has uploaded a whole bunch of layouts over the past week that are all worthy to be LOTW picks, but I chose this one. Love the border around it with the differerent pp's and the stitching, and I think it is always important to document why we do what we do.

Sharpie (her real name is Lisa, but we call her Sharpie on the boards) is one of our most vocal and fun members. She, along with her mom, Audrey, really keep the boards hopping and laughing. I love this layout and how she documented photos of her daughter over the years in the same spot. Even though the large photo making up most of the background, isn't the best quality, it is fantastic. Also love her simple and elegant title.

In addition to all the great projects by all the members, the design team has also been busy with the June kits and they revealed their designs today. You can find the sugar and spice reveals on the boards today, and I will be uploading them to the blog and homepage soon. I did reveal the kits last week. These are by far my favorite kits I have done since taking over Scrapdango in February. Many of the design team members felt the same. They are both perfect for 4th of July (if you're from the U.S.) or other summer layouts and so much more. When you see the DT reveals, you will see that the kits are extremely versatile. The sugar kit I think was used for more boy layouts and even a Christmas layout. I have some great specials going on right now if you want to subscribe to either kit (or both) or if you want to pre-order (before June 30th) either of these kits for a reduced price. You can read about the specials here. They will begin shipping on June 25th.

July Spice Kit ~ Featuring Glitz Kismet

We still have two weeks of L.O.A.D. left and you can still get in one one of the weekly prizes or the chance to win one of Scrapdango's full kits at the end of the month. Congratulations to the winner of Week 1, Rebecca (mamakven) who won the Crate Paper Mia collection kit. The prize for Week 2 is a partial March sugar kit with paper from the Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage line and cardstock to match and some of the embellies included in the original kit. It is still jampacked with lots of scrappy goodness. I will be announcing the winner of Week 2 soon along with the prize for Week 3.

Hope you all have a wonderful scrappy week. :)
