L.O.A.D. Wrap-up & Member Monday

Well, June is long gone along with half the year, and so is our Layout a Day (LOAD) Contest. It was a fabulous success, and I am so excited that our members had 322 draws for the contest with a draw being a layout, 2 cards or an altered project, so that is a whole lotta creativity going on by the Dango gals during a pretty busy month with the end of school and start of summer.

There was a winner for each week with some fabulous prizes and then an overall winner for one of Scrapdango's fabulous past kits. The winner's were:

Week #1 - Rebecca (mamakven)
Week #2 - LisaM
Week #3 - Cheri
Week #4 - Kimmy (lostinadream)
and the BIG WINNER was
Sandy (shykiwi)

We will be taking the rest of the summer off from our big events to give our design team and members a chance to just enjoy the summer (or winter if you live on the other side of the world). We will still be doing the weekly DT challenges and monthly sketch challenges along with lots of other fun stuff on the boards, but we won't be doing any big contests. But join us in September when we will be coming back strong with our School's In contest, which was a huge event last year with lots of inspiration, fun and of course, prizes. We will still be doing guest designer contests throughout the summer. The August Guest Designer Contest is going on right now and your entry for that is due by July 20th, so hop on over to the boards and see what you have to do and you may be the next guest designer and get to work with one of Scrapdango's awesome sugar or spice kits.

So now for our Member Monday where I highlight some standout projects in the gallery over the past week. I apologize that I forgot to do this last week. I didn't so much forget as it just didn't get done. It was going to be another Terrific Tuesday and then when I missed that, I thought maybe a Wacky Wednesday but then after that I just gave up.

Anyway, it's still Monday here on the West Coast for about an hour and a half, so here are my picks this week for Member Monday. I chose 4 in honor of the 4th of July weekend.
This first one is by one of our LOAD winners, Cheri. I just love the photo, and she put so many different patterns of paper together, but they all work together so well. The title is fabulous too.

This one is by one of our past design team members, Ginni, and I just loved how she used the April Bo-Bunny Mama-razzi kit. She did a great take on the title and added a lot of her signature bling.

Here is one by Kelly (kcflorida) that I just think is so adorable. I love all the bright colors on teh white, and those flowers and little shoes are just too cute.
Here is one by Kim (karennie34) that I just think is fantastic. Love how she arranged the photo under the rolled back paper along with all those cool flower accents scattered all around.
