PPC-CC #15 & Fall To Layout 96

Good morning ladies (and those few crafting gents!) and hopefully every had a great weekend! The first ever PPC Summer Blog Hop is officially over and I hope all of those who wanted to participate got a chance to. I'll be announcing the winner of my blog candy in the next couple days. Keep an eye out on the PPC blog for the winners of more blog candy and of course, the Grand Creation winner and runner ups. It's Monday and that means time for another challenge! Can you believe our first week of summer is already over?? My friend realized on Saturday, "The longest day of the year is already over?!? Now I'm sad." Summer really does fly by and I'm not sure if it's because we literally only have like 3 months of warmth and 9 months of winter in Edmonton. Megan has a great color challenge this week. For those of you that aren't SU demonstrators and haven't gotten your hands on the Daffodil Delight, feel free to substitute in a bright yellow. I'd say it's closer to Summer Sun than than anything. I've combined this week's colors with Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout 96.
I used the new level 2 hostess set called Apple Blossoms and I absolutely LOOOOVE it! It has that new modern feel feel to it paired with cuteness like the apple! And if you haven't fallen in love with the new clear mount stamps set, I stamped all of the images without a Stamp-a-ma-jig!! Lovin' the new clear mount! I can't believe I already own 21 clear mount stamps!! Insane! Speaking of insanity... Jamie just picked up his new Suzuki Grand Vitara on Friday. Boy it sure is nice to ride in a new car. It's a brand spanking new car for the both of us. It's costing us an arm and a leg for the next 6 years but in the end, it's worth it to not have to smell gasoline every time I get into the Cavalier. And even more insanity my friend, Mark, proposed to his girlfriend (also my good friend) of 3 years, Jinnee!! He proposed on Saturday morning and get this. They decided to elope, flew out to Niagara Falls at midnight and got married Monday afternoon!! It's so romantic that two people can love each other so much and get married just like that! A big congrats to them both!  

Hopefully you made it through my wordy post and get a chance to pop over the the PPC blog and create something this week!

Well Sandy see all of these previews...well makes a girl a little *envious*...LOL. I can't wait to really look at the new books, but I sure have loved everything you have shown me so far. Your card rocks and that is because you rocked the color challenge again with your layout and images. WTG!! I had a good weekend, I hope you did too! Hope you enjoy our warm day today. :)
