Lots of new stuff and you can win it!

Sunshine Wonder Week is in full swing! My speed scrap on Monday was a great success! I am so relieved that I wasn't the only one there *LOL* And on Thursday there is another one at 10 pm EST and I can't wait to be on the other end scrapping!

There are great new things added to Sun all the time and this week is no exception. In fact, we have a new way for you to win some of our great new stuff!!! If you blog about certain new products in the store and help us advertise than you will be entered into a drawing to win the kit you advertised! How cool is that? Just visit the Give Away Desk and check out all the kits offering this.

Greedz just added a beautiful new kit called Veralyn to the shop.
And there is a matching freebie on Kelly's blog if you want to pop in!

And she has a matching alpha that I just LOVE!! In fact, it comes in 2 colors pink and blue.
Amy Sumrall did a Collab kit with Krystal Hartley called Ooh la la.
And I couldn't have described it any better than that title!
You can grab a matching freebie at Amy's blog too!
And for all you paper addicts out there like me, Kiki has a gorgeous new paper pack out called Haute Pink. Gorgeous shades of red and pink all in different textures.
Last, but absolutely not least is Lliella's new kit that comes out tomorrow.
Just check out this sneak peek!! How cool is that!!
I have seen the full preview and I can assure you that it WILL be mine!!

And as if this post weren't long enough I thought I would share some of my recent LO's since I haven't posted one in ages!!

And this is a special day for another reason too. Look what I received this morning!

Happy Early Birthday to Me!!!!!

So my husband asked me to meet him at my parents house tonight and when I walked in I found an early 30th birthday present waiting for me. I have always wanted a pug puppy and look what I got!!!!

OMG, he is SO cute and I love him to death already. I am slightly apprehensive since this is my first dog of my own and I need to house train him. But he is so sweet and fun and he is so good with the kids that I think it will be worth the work in the beginning. My cat is not too fond of him but I hope in time they will learn to ignore each other.

A freebie in case you missed it.

Last month during the daily download the Wonder Girls gave away an awesome kit they made called the Missing Bits and pieces of Yesterday. If you missed it you are in luck. We are all giving away our parts all over again. Just visit all the Wonder Girls blogs and you can have all the pieces. But please remember that Sunshine Wonder Week kicks off tomorrow! So come back to the SUN forums and join in all the great challenges and games. And a special reminder that we have Speed Scraps on Monday at 3 EST and Thursday at 10 pm EST (scroll down to the previous post for more info and to see the participation prize).

So, here is a reminder of the Sunshine Wonder Week Schedule and then you can have your freebie.

And here is my part of the Missing Bits and Pieces kit as your freebie.

Remember, to get the whole kit you need to hit all the Wonder Girls Blogs...

A few things to note...

Can I even begin to tell you how exciting it is to have all these new designers at SUN? They are all so friendly as well as talented. If you haven't visited the SUN shop by now you really should!

One of my favorite new additions is Beckie Wallace and she just added an adorable new kit to the shop and even has an awesome coordinating freebie on her blog! (And by the's on sale for a limited time!)

And head to Beckie's Blog to get this cute little freebie too!

In other SUN news....Kiki Halbert, another of our great new designers is having a CT call! You can work with stuff from all 3 of her stores not just SUN. Visit her blog for details.

And I would like to take this time to introduce you to a wonderful woman and an up and coming designer, Julie. It is. You may have come across her stuff already but if not then you simply must see it. Her writing style is sure to amuse you and she has grown so much in her designs in a short period of time and I just know that you will find something you like on her blog. And the best part is that she is not only a great designer but she has become a wonderful friend to me! Her newest freebie kit is called Cheerful Grunge and it's available at her blog.

I think that's enough for today don't you? But don't week is Sunshine Wonder Week and it will be bigger and better than ever!

As Arnold once said....I'll be back!

Well, I just wanted to let you all know that I am going on vacation for a week. It will be very hard to be away from all of my internet friends and I will miss you all terribly but my poor husband needs a break. And if we stay in town he will get 40 phone calls and end up feeling guilty and going to work on his week off. So we are heading to the Hamptons to stay with my uncle and enjoy some fishing, clamming and beach time. I will probably spend most of my time chillin' in the hot tub *L*
So I will catch up with everyone on Monday and I might even have an announcement...who knows....

Are you good at naming kits?

If you are good at naming kits you should check out Amanda's fantastic new kit and help her find a name for it. Just head to her blog, Perfectly Imperfect, and leave your idea for a name in her comments. Whoever picks the best name wins the kit for free, how cool is that? And if she likes your name and keeps it in consideration for another kit you may find yourself with a goodie too :)

And when you stop by to add your name suggestion you should grab the matching freebie she posted for you!

Did someone ask for a freebie?

Did you make it to Sunshine Wonder Week at Sunshine Studio Scrap? We had a lot of participants, a lot of fun and we sure gave out a lot of great prizes too! If you missed it then please come and join us at the end of July for another week loaded with fun and prizes.

I have a few sneak peaks for you too...

And you might have heard a little bit about the Cross-store Collab called Let's Connect. Let me tell you personally that it has a TON of awesome stuff packed in there!! So watch for it to come out today in some of your favorite stores including SUN!

A celebration of friendship and technology, Let's Connect is bright, bold, funky and fun! Jam-packed with goodies, this kit contains 85 papers and over 140 elements, including frames, stickers, flowers, glitter, ribbons, cords, speech balloons, word art and 2 alphabets!

Let's Connect is the collaboration of Amy Sumrall, Ellie Lash, Flergs, Franziska Altmann, Heather Manning, Kim B's Designs, Krystal Hartley, Lost Gurlz Venture Designs, mgl Scraps, Miss Crow, Moon Scraps, Polka Dot Plum, Sugarplum Paperie, Tracey Monette, Web Designz by Kristi and Wenchd Grafix.

And here are a few layouts I did with it. And let me tell you ... I know I will do a lot more with this one!

If you want to see more with this great kit then just visit this gallery. And while you are there feel free to leave the ladies some love :)

Alright, this what you were waiting for?

After a particularly funny conversation at Hummie's we decided that the June Design Challenge should be based on various toiletry themes. And since I am one of those Mommies that takes pictures of everything I have several potty training pictures to scrap. (Don't worry...I'm not THAT mean...nothing "important" shows *L*) So I decided to do a potty training kit. I also did a more traditional kit with the color palette as well. And since the original theme was toiletries and the colors reminded me of the odd color combinations and patterns in my own Grandmothers bathroom that somehow manage to work together, I named it Grandma's Bathroom *L*

So, here are your two freebie mini kits...
