Freaky Friday!

Well at some point during the week, I actually manage to post. This week it wasn't until Friday, but, hey, I've been busy putting kits together to get ready to ship and planning a 4 year old's birthday party.

I do have quite a bit of stuff that I wanted to share with you. First off, is LOTW. This is actually spanning over a couple of weeks since I was so late in posting this week, so I will pick 2 layouts. Besides the DT reveal of the layouts they did with this month's kits (which were fantastic), there have been some great projects posted by other Dangos in the gallery.

First up, I have this super cute layout by Krystle. Just love the series of photos of her adorable little girl enjoying ice cream.

And 2nd, here is one by Nessa. I just love the bright "sunny" colors and this is a great preview of the sugar kit to come in August. ;) I just think this whole layout is "Dog"gone cute. :)

Next up, I want to profile the July guest designer. This gal has been such an integral part of the Scrapdango boards for the past few months. She keeps us all in stitches and keeps things lively. She also shared some fabulous projects that she did with the sugar kit this month. Our July guest designer is Lisa Elliot, but she goes by Sharpie on the boards. Here is her bio:

Hi Everyone!
My name is Lisa Elliot but I'm better know on the board as Sharpie. I used to be on the Scrapdango site a few years ago but I strayed... ~hanging head in shame~ Now I'm back FULL FORCE!! That's me, that's just the way I roll! I love having fun with my peeps on the Dango board.

My scrapping style of over 8 years of scrapping is a non-style. A little of this and a lot of that. The bulk of my layouts are of my daughter, but my I'd have to say my favourite (that's how us Canadians spell it...) layouts to do are about everyday items or random things. I secretly love and horde stickers and I find putting a grouping of flowers on a layout incredibly stressful.

The non-scrappy part of my life is made interesting with my daughter, husband and 2 idiot cats. I also work part time in a retirement home and LOVE the residents and the stuff they get up to. I’ve always got a story or two. A lot of strange or funny things seem to happen to me, it's like I'm a magnet for stupid.

Here is one of my favorite layouts she did with the sugar kit using a sketch by design team member, Carly Gannon. I just love the sun she did and the stitching on it adds an extra special touch.

Now, I have the hard decision of deciding on the August guest designer. Every month, I am blown away by the submissions and have no idea how I'll ever decide. Be sure to check back to see who it will be.

Well until next week (sometime), have a happy, scrappy day. :)
