Challenge #40

Here in Michigan, nice weather is just too short.  Our summer months seem to go by just way to fast.  Once summer hits, our schedule fills up with activity after activity.  The kids have their activities, my husband and I have our activities, and to top it with family trips, I have very few free weekends available.

Next Saturday, my mother-in-law and I will be bicycling across Michigan.  I'm not sure of the exact mileage, but it's somewhere just under 300 miles.  We have 6 straight days of cycling with camping each night.  As you ladies are scrapping away, think of me!

Okay, lets get on with the next challenge!!

Wowza!  Check out these colors.  I fell in love with these colors.  They are so bright and cheerful!  The possibilities are truly endless with this combination!!
I'm excited to see your creations.
The twist this time around is to use:
a black & white photo
a square/grid pattern
Challenge Deadline is June 30 @ midnight EST
I love seeing new faces on our blog.  Along with those new faces, we get to see creations made by fabulous guest designers.  This month, we were privileged to have
Julie Tucker-Wolek
Paula Flavia
I want to thank you for being our guest designers for the month of June.  Your dedication to Color Me Scrappy is appreciated by Pam and I, as well as the entire DT.
And now onto our Design Team.  Really, these ladies have just rocked this challenge.  This challenge marks the end of another term.  We will be losing a couple of these talented ladies.  I wish them the best of luck in all their endeavors.

May Winners

Ok, so having the kids out of school is really throwing me for a loop.  I used to have a list of the things that needed to be done and when they needed to be completed.  My boys have been out of school for 1 week and I feel as if my world has turned upside down.

Needless to say, I'm running a little late on announcing the May winners, so let's not wait any longer.

Our DT Favorites for May are:

Elisabeth Sarkis
Paula Flavia
Sally Cranney
As always, our DT Favs are invited to be Guest Designers.  Please send an email to so we can forward the July challenges to you.
Thanks and Congratulations!
And our random winner of May is:
Lynn A.
Challenge #38, Entry 11

Challenge #39

June 1st.  Wow.  Summer is just about here!  I just wish the rainy/stormy season would end ... all of the tornadoes through the heartland have just been devastating ... we've even had tornadoes in Michigan!  Last Tuesday the tornado sirens were going off in the little town that I live in.  I had just bought a weather radio and we had literally set it up the day before ... I was sitting here watching the news, that thing went off and scared the bejezus out of me!  Luckily, the storms broke up before they got to us, though!

Don't forget that we've got a Design Team Call going on right now ... we're looking for outgoing, positive, happy scrappers to round out our talented design team.  Do you think you've got what it takes?  We'd love to hear from you!  You've got til June 7th to get your application in!
