Yes! Another whole month has flown by, and it's that time again! I'm talking about the Quick Page Contest over at Cool Scraps Digital. For June we were privileged to have the opportunity to work with a beautiful vintage feeling kit, DEVOUT MEMORIES, by Karen Kleiman, aka KakleiDesigns.  Since I'm preparing to make a quick jaunt to the Outer Banks to visit a friend for a few days, I prepared my contest QP last night and wanted to get it posted here so all my peeps could snag it up quickly.  Be sure to head on over to the forum at CSD and browse through the QP Contest Gallery to see all the entries; but more important than gallery gazing is to be sure you visit the forum thread about the June QP contest as it contains all the direct download links to all the pages submitted.  You can gather up a really nice QP album if you spend some time there.  The entries so far are awesome!  I think all entries will be posted by June 25th for your pleasure.  If you have not visited their forum before, you will need to register before you'll be able to see the everything (registration is free, just a user name and password is all it takes!).  Here's a look at the kit previews:

And here is the Quick Page I designed using Devout Memories . . .

I'm offering my QP in two sizes, so you have a great choice!  You can pick up the 8 x 8" size by visiting the June QP Contest thread in the forum at CSD and just click on the direct download link in my post there.

Or, if you prefer having the 12 x 12" size you can click on the link below:


I hope you enjoy this goodie!

In other news, I just had my ?? birthday this week, and no, I'm not telling my age!  LOL!  Suffice it to say I have 3 grandchildren and we'll just leave it at that!  I've learned to celebrate the fact that I am here, was born, not count the years.  It keeps me happier that way!  LOL!  I was actually born on Father's Day the year I came into being.  Needless to say, I think my Mom gave her all providing my Dad with a live gift like that!  LOL!  Anyway, to celebrate, my DD surprised me with a yummy tropical smoothie she made for breakfast, and off we scurried to board one of our local casino boats for a day of off-shore gambling on the ocean!  Wasn't that special!!  While onboard, we took in a delicious buffet style breakfast on one of the upper indoor decks of the boat, took a lengthy sunbath on the uppermost outer deck using #30 and #80 sunblock on our fair hides, danced a little to a live band on yet another deck, and watched lots of folks having a blast feeding the one-arm bandits.  We took lots of pictures and thoroughly enjoyed our day on the water in total appreciation of where we are fortunate enough to live.  I'll post some pics of all this in an upcoming post if I got any good ones.  I haven't put them in my computer yet, and I'm not sure how they turned out given the rocking of the waves.  LOL!

I'll be back in a few days after my trip with more freebies and more pictures to share with you.  In the meantime, HAPPY SCRAPPING!
