I love my Dad because...

This is a sweet and simple little mini album the kids and I put together for Kevin for Father's Day. The 6x8.5" black chipboard pages were purchased from Speedway Paper Products. They do not have black in stock any more. I hope they do get more in because I LOVE it! I bound it all together with 1.25" rings and a Bind-It-All. So glad I had the jumbo rings on hand as this is a very chunky board book. The papers and stickers are all Cosmo Cricket from the Girl Friday and Cogsmo lines. The ticket and scallop mats are from the Doodlecharms, and Zoobaloo cricut cartridges, edited on Design Studio. I also used some border punches from fiskars, and EK Success.

Sizzling Summer Paint Can Swap!

I wanted to get the word out on a REALLY FUN paint can swap I am hosting over on the Cricut Message Boards. It's been a chilly wet June here in Nebraska and I need some sunshine!

This is the perfect opportunity for a first time swapper, and great fun for those already in the know. It's a simple one time swap AND you have a good 6 weeks to get it done! Easy as pie in July!

The rules are simple:

-Sign up closes June 15, 2009 at 11:59pm CST I will post the swap partners on the morning of June 16th. Sign up by posting to the thread, then PMing me your information. Your information will stay with me until the completion of the swap at which time it will be purged never to be seen agian. I will not sell or use your information for any purpose other than this particular paint can swap. I need your name/address/email away from the message board.

-Decorate your gallon size paint can in a Sizzling Summer theme and create a coordinating card to go with it. This is a great time to practice your mad cardmaking skillz!

-Fill it with about $15 of scrapping goodies (check the master questionnaire thread for ideas) Be good to the person you are swapping with. Make sure if you put in any food items that they are NOT meltable! the mail gets hot this time of year!

-Ship paint can to your assigned swapper postmarked no later than July 31, 2009.

-Delivery Confirmation is required. Keep your receipts and tracking numbers! This is your only proof that you sent your package. Insurance is not req'd but I strongly reccomend it.

-Post a Thank You and (if possible) a photo of the can and card you receive with your goodies. It is very important to say thank you!

-Last but not least...HAVE FUN! What a great opportunity to use the new LAB Cart, all the pretty flowers on Tink, the beach things from PDDU or DC too! Let's get creative!
