goodie giveaway

Lately I've had an overwhelming amount of love for this guy=> His unabashed, shocking humor definitely keeps my life interesting. L♥ve ya babe. Since this is my blog I can insist that you sit through cheesy moments like that. :P
Now for the 2 giveaways I planned on doing last week... That's why you are really here. ;) I made this page using The Girls Loft kit that I'll be giving away to 2 lucky bloggies. Before we get to that, I did want to share that one of my favorite routines recently. Posting collages of pictures on my blog either made in photoshop or picasa (like our day at the lake seen below) then printing out the collage. Saves time because when I am ready to create the photos are too.First, you probably know this little lady, Margie, and I'm sure you've used her cool products since she was the Style Director at Making Memories for many years. She is also planning Spark with Rhonna, Jefra & me & has become an instant friend. If you've ever gone to an event with her you would know that she is pure fun. The Girls Loft is her new venture-a fab kit company- and she has 2 kits to giveaway!! Her signature pink and green color combination kit & the fun summer August kit... wahoo!
Also, I have a giveaway of some fun tags from 2GirlzStuff on Etsy. Very cool tags that are super versatile & colorful! You will be spotting these on lots of my upcoming projects.
Leave a comment with your name to be entered to win: one of the 2 kits from The Girls Loft or this stash of awesome tags!!

Love the collage prints!

BeeBopp23 said...

That kit looks sooooo awesome! Thanks for mentioning that you make your collages in picasa and simply print them out, one of the things that holds me back from scrapping more often is the fact that I always have to go into PS and fiddle with them before printing and I'm still new to the program so I've been struggling with making collages or just grouping pictures! I'm gonna try out picasa!

HL0517 said...

Love those bright colors on the labels and would love to win some.

Kami said...

I love making collages on Picasa...I upload them to Facebook for friends to see...and they look really cool. Picasa is really an amazing free photo editing program..I took the online (self-paced) course from Jessica Sprague on Picasa and even tho I have been using Picasa for a while..I found out just how much it can do! Check out the course...well worth the $$$ (I think it is $25)
