Can I tell you how grossly hot it has been at my house?!?! We've been breaking temperature records, I'm sure - too much of a good thing if you ask me! I am not so sure how I feel about these 30+ temps but I AM very glad that my darling husband decided to dig out our portable A/C unit and hook it up in our bedroom! YAY!

Tania is not with us this week again as her injury is just making her ouchy all over - send her some love tho, I think it's bumming her out to not be able to even lift her own camera (I'm tempted to make a special trip to her place to A) help with dishes and B) take photos for her!) So sadly she's unable to create a layout for us this week and I'm blaming my total lack of layout on intolerable temperatures, house guest overload & farming duties! (weak excuse, perhaps but it's true!)

However, our super-duper kick-ass design team (who live in milder climates than mine!) have all whipped up some stellar layouts and mini albums (thanks Keandra!) for this week's challenge, to


Also, don't forget that this is the last week you have to scraplift one of Gretchen's dynamite layouts...awe Gretchen, we're sad to see you go. Your pages rock, baby! This is Gretchen's last week with us but you can see more of her work on her blog (click on her name in the previous sentence!).

If you haven't already done so, be sure to join our new Lotus Paperie Network where you can "friend" any of the existing memebers, invite new members to join, share your artwork and chat with other scrappers! Check it out!

If you are new to our challenges get the lowdown on what to do and how to do it HERE. It's super fun.

this girl loves her paints!

Have I ever mentioned how I envy you guys who have "pink" in your lives? Seriously!

Holy mini-book Batman! Get a load of all these great pages! Sorry, Keandra, they're prolly out of order!

Seriously, I think all your pages make me swoon!

Prolly the ONLY person I know who can rock out hand-painted irises with fingerpaint. Now that's skills!
