Yes! Another whole month of summer has flown by, and I've been somewhat MIA from my blogging! I can only hope this post will make it up to you.  Summer is just a busy time!

How about a collection of 45 gorgeous Quick Pages for the taking, would that be a good peace offering?  Follow me as I explain the fabulous monthly happening over at Cool Scraps Digital.  Each month they have a superb QP contest, and I've been participating for a few months now.  It's such fun!  For July, we were provided a bright, cheerful kit, HAPPINESS, by PrettyJu Scrap Designs.  Take a look at the following previews:

Isn't it just grand?!!  Now I'm a busy gal, but I just had to get my QP designed for this contest, so I played with the kit for the first time last night, and here's what I came up with . . .

and I made this layout just to test out my page design . . .

That was a happy day, my birthday; and we were up bright and early with a spiked breakfast smoothie in hand on our way to The Big M Casino boat for a day of gambling and sunning on the sea.  What's not to be happy about?  LOL!

All the Quick Pages we contestants submitted to Cool Scraps Digital are in 8 x 8" png format so that the collective album is uniform.  You can head over there to the forum and look for the Quick Page Contest thread where you will find in each post a direct download link for the other 44 pages.  If you haven't visited there before and want to get all these, you'll need to register in the forum so you'll be able to see the download links in each post.

I'm offering my standard size 12 x 12" png Quick Page right HERE for download.

Do go have a look see at all the other pages offered.  It is truly the best contest I've happened across, and I look forward to participating each month.  You'll be astounded at all the gorgeous pages for the taking!!

Try to hang on with me and check back often.  I have great intentions on getting my freebies out to you very soon.  I have a huge quantity designed and usually do all that very late at night.  The problem right now is our weather is so hot and humid during the day that it's almost impossible not to be submerged in the pool during the daytime.  We've had very little rain all year, everything here is very dry and brittle.  The grass crunches beneath my feet. 

My Outer Banks jaunt was such a nice break; great to see my dear friends, and all over too quickly.  I found it most relaxing, even the journey itself.  I have vowed to myself not to let so many years slip by between our visits.

Catch you later, and keep scrapping!
