Market Street Color Challenge and a giveaway

First and foremost I would like to say
Happy Memorial Day
to all those out there who have served our country in some form or fashion
whether you are a parent, sibling, husband, wife, child, friend of one of our AMAZING service men and women. Please take some time today to remember those who have served and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom! My family appreciates you!!!

So, how is your summer going? It just started for us but boy am I glad it is here. I'm one of those moms that just loves the kids being home with me! This summer will be no different. They are getting so big and I cant wait to just hang out and play all day. So with that said that's kinda why I've been mia a bit lately. I had a huge epiphany and realized they wont be babies forever. I want to spend as much time with them as I can before they are too "cool" to hang out with their mom. Lets hope that never happens lol. Wishful thinking I know.

The girls and I did find some time to craft this past weekend though so let me share a project with you!

Market Street Stamps is having a color challenge. It ends in about 14 hours so you had better get on it. ;) These colors are just tooo beautiful and Dobea had an amazing week of fun going on over at her blog last week and I was so blessed to win this stamp. I had to use it. I don't know why I didn't have it before shame on me!!!

Speaking of a week of fun. I ended up with a stamp that I already had...actually when I was going through my stash I realized I have three of this same stamp! Oops. Well Oops for me yayy for you...two people who comment on this post will be randomly selected to win the Compass stamp set! Please be sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you win. ;) Good luck I'll draw the winners next week on Monday.

So I created a quick bookmark for the corner of my pages! All of the paper is from the Echo Parks Hello Summer. It all fit so perfectly with this color challenge. The stamp is from the set called It Takes LOVE. The font on the word LOVE is sooo amazing I just love it! That's pretty much it just a super simple bookmark oh and I used the tutorial from HERE.

Thanks for stopping by yall!!! ;)

    Kudos to you for spending all the time you can with your kids. It felt like yesterday, that I was doing the same thing...and today, my kids are 25 and 30 years old. It goes SO FAST.
