LM #351 - Summer Adventures - Outdoor Adventures

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! Where in the world did June go to?! It seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye for me! It is the 4th of July holiday weekend here in the US and it has been a busy one, and that is why I am running behind getting this post up!

It's a new month and that means we have a new theme and a new set of challenges for you today. DT Natalie is providing our challenges for us in July and I think you are going to like them! Our July theme is "Summer Adventures" and our first challenge is:

LM #351 - "Outdoor Adventures" - Document an outdoor adventure OR you may use outdoor adventure themes in your layout (think tents, stars, mountains, road/road signs, water sports, bike gear, etc)

First up, please help me welcome our July GDT - Denise 

Hello , I’m Denise from Germany. I have been a scrapbooker since I got my first camera when I was sixteen. I decorated my albums long time before I ever heard the word “scrapbooking”. Ten years ago, I was infected with all the possibilities of die cutters, papers, stamps and embellishments. Last year, I started with mixed media and up to now, I like this style: a little bit neat, a little bit messy.

Denise creates beautiful layouts and I am sure she is going to inspire you with her work all month long. Be sure to stop by Denise's blog - Scrapbooking and More - to see more of her beautiful work.

Wow! Such beautiful layouts from our design team!

I will be back tomorrow with our Top picks for June and our winner of the $20 gift certificate, so stay tuned!
