Sunshine and Raindrops by Wendy Tunison and a Freebie!

It all started with a little frog and how badly Wendy wanted to use him in a kit! Yeah, she's a sucker for a cute face. LOL! I'm so excited to show you her latest release. It's called Sunshine & Raindrops and it's full of whimsy and fun!


You can pick it up for the first week only for just $3.00 at SNP or NDISB.
Before I show you what our CT did with this kit though, I want to remind you about a few things....



Do you remember when you were a child and your elders could bribe you to do anything for a quarter or a nickle or even a penny? Well, consider Wendy your elder. LOL! She's going to be giving away quarters from now until the end of October! Are you all lined up, hand extended just waiting for me to tell you what you need to do to get them? Yeah! I'm so excited! Here's how you can earn some quarters from Wendy...

1. For every 3 comments you leave in her designer gallery on layouts, you'll receive a quarter. Now, of course there are some stipulations. These need to be genuine comments...not just, "nice layout." or "love this" kind of comments. Take a minute and really tell the artist what you think of their work. There are some fabulously talented ladies working with Wendy's kits and they deserve genuine love on their layouts.

2. For every layout you post in her designer gallery using one of her kits from now until the end of October, you'll earn a quarter. That's easy, right?

3. We're looking for a few more ladies to join our Creative Team so if you're interested, please send Wendy a PM (at SNP) with a little about you, a link to your most up to date gallery, your blog address, and your other CT commitments. If you're brave enough to apply, you'll be rewarded handsomely with two quarters! Our requirements are that you create 2 layouts per kit as well as a freebie to give away on your blog and to blog about all new releases & sales. We are also looking for a couple of enablers and gallery girls who will not be required to make freebies but will instead be answering ISO posts, enabling and/or leaving love in Wendy's designer galleries.

Now, what does all of this quarter business add up to? Well, if you keep track of what you've done and post a reply to this thread at SNP documenting it all (link up those comments, add your layout(s) to your post) by the end of October, Wendy will send you a coupon code by the 5th of November for however many quarters you've earned. Now there has to be some limits right? Grandpa wouldn't have given us twenty dollars in quarters back then. So, you can earn up to $6.00 in quarters. Of course, if you'd like to add more comments and layouts, we're not going to stop you. In fact, Wendy is going to reward one person even more by doubling their coupon! The winner will be the person who has earned the most quarters! So start typing those comments and loading those layouts and by all means, don't forget to apply for our CT!
Here's a look at the beautiful pages our CT made this week. If they've made you a freebie, simply click on the preview to be taken to their blog to download.

Okay, now how about one more free QP from Wendy?

Wendy decided to give two free kits away this week and the winners are....drumroll please....

Check your inboxes ladies! You'll be receiving a coupon to pick up Sunshine & Raindrops for free!
Don't worry if you didn't win. If you left Wendy a comment, she'll be sending you a coupon for 25% off the already low introductory price of $3.00 so you can pick it up for just $2.25! Whoot!


You can always find more freebies at CraftCrave and Creative Busy Hands.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Stars and Stripes by B2N2 Scraps

I have a great kit to show you today from B2N2 Scraps at STS.  Check out Stars and Stripes.  Now I know you all don't have all those 4th of July layouts done and this is a great kit to get them scrapped with!  There's lots of different stars and fireworks in this kit.

I did two double layouts with this kit of my niece.  I absolutely love how they turned out!
