wanna play?

I love summer and I love traveling! Since I won't be doing a lot of traveling this summer with our new bundle of joy (who we are patiently awaiting the arrival of) we thought of a fun idea called Shades of Summer! Hence my totally awesome shades in the picture! What is 'shades of summer' you ask? Well, I want to send these funky frames & a traveling album across the country to some of you!

Here are the requirements:
Put on the shades I send you
Take a picture
Add picture to your blog (if you have one) and email one to me
Print picture and add to the included mini album (scrapbooking the pic is optional but totally awesome!)
Promptly send the shades and mini album to next person on the list

***Edited @ 10 pm*** I love all of your enthusiasm about wanting to join in the shades of summer! I just opened my email and to my pleasant surprise have to close this at over 150 people!!! Otherwise we'll be sending around sunglasses until next year! Now I just need to buy some more shades...Collin?!! We're going to have a few albums traveling around! :) ***Edited***


If you wanna join Collin's cheeseburger eating tour that's also another option!;)

Newsflash* Baby Bump Update* she's still cozy in my belly! So, I patiently wait while listening to my new fave artist Jaymay! Turn up the tunes! Thanks for all your comments they made my day!

I have to admit, I am a little star struck! It was so neat to see the comment on my blog from you. And I was a little embarrassed too because I totally copied the husband interview from you. You just have great ideas. Too Fun!!

ARob said...

I lizzy-- I wanna play! I can't find your e-mail though....

prairyk said...

Fun idea, & congrats on your bun! I'd like to say, though, I wish you'd make the music play optional. I usually begin opening several windows, waiting, & I don't especially care to hear the music. Then I scramble trying to find the right window to turn it off.

candi tardio said...

great pic ;)
sure would love to join in on the fun!!!!!!!
take care :)

Anonymous said...

prairyk- just a suggestion, if you dont like the music, just turn your speakers off. :)

Michelle said...

Hey Liz!
I totally love your idea about the Shades of Summer!! I have no idea if you have closed this up yet since I can imagine why there was so much interest!! IF there is still room I'd love to join!! you can email me a michelledobbyn@hotmail.com ... I hope you are doing well while you wait for the little one!! :]

Christine said...

Mandi said...

I'm in Northern Ontario, Canada and would love to play! Praying for you on your upcoming delivery!!

Vanessa, Florida, USA said...

I wish I could play, too, but I see that you already have tons of offers! :-)

I just came across your blog for the first time and so I'm catching up on old posts. I have to say that I am literally CRYING because I read your hubby's post on May 4 for your b-day where he lists the reasons he loves you... WOW!!! He seems like an amazing huuby and that was so very sweet. Congrats on your soon-to-be-here baby girl! I can't wait to see pics of your little one and the layouts you will create. God Bless You and your family.

Crystal & Patrick said...

What a super fun idea!

Oh, congrats on your upcoming baby girl. You are a brilliant scrapbooker & are truly inspiring!
