Monthly Blog Challenge ~ June

Natalie back this month and I wanted to know, who is excited for June?  I know I am, well at least a little bit.  June is an interesting month because you've got summer activities and vacations to plan.  But you also have a day dedicated to the Fathers in your life.  My dad has a nickname, MacGyver, since he will always find a way to get things working. He's always on the go, but is also the sweetest most giving man you'll ever meet.  I'm blessed to call him Dad and decided to dedicate a layout just for him.  So for this month I want you to create a page dedicated to the father figure in your life.  Have fun and remember one lucky person who enters will win a coupon to download a Simple Girl Scraps kit of their choice.  Everyone who enters will receive a special gift as well as a thank you for your support.
Here are a few kits that are more masculine to jump start your creativity.

Monthly Blog Challenge ~ May

Time is passing so quickly this year. I find it hard to believe we are fast approaching the mid point of 2014.  Natalie back to bring you the May Monthly Blog Challenge.  I am reminded of so many things during the month.  We have our last bit of nice weather before the heat of summer hits, school is starting to wind down, and best of all we have that special day to celebrate our mothers.  Of course we should always find a way to lift the spirits of every mother out there, so for this challenge I want you to create a layout using the theme: MOTHERHOOD   Design a tribute page to your own mother, grandmother, mother in law, even for your daughter/daughter in law who are mothers.  Have fun and remember one lucky person who enters will win a coupon to download a Simple Girl Scraps kit of their choice.  Everyone who enters will receive a special gift as well as a thank you for your support.
 Some of my favorite motherhood kits to jump start your creativity are: 
A Mother's Love by Simple Girl Scraps

Monthly Blog Challenge ~ April

Can you believe it's already April?  Natalie back again this month to bring you the April Blog Challenge.  The sounds of spring are all around us.  Birds chirping, bees buzzing, and even those pesky crickets singing their songs.  You find music in everything, especially when the world begins to wake up from it's winter sleep.  So this month I want you to create a layout about MUSIC.  It can be anything type of music you want; your current playlist, sounds of spring, anything that pertains to music and sound.  One lucky person who enters will win a coupon to download a Simple Girl Scraps kit of their choice.  Everyone who enters will receive a special gift as well as a thank you for your support.
