Project Life-Sunny Day

Since summer is among us (or most of us) we decided to go with a SUN challenge for your project life page this week..  We understand that not everyone is celebrating summer this time of year (Our Aussie friends) but we thought this challenge could be a fun one anyway :)   Our design team members have done an outstanding job on this weeks challenge and we are so excited to share these with you..

*Use a SUN shape on your Project life page/pages.
it can be an image on a tag or card, it can be a die cut or a stamp.

and just to let you know, Some lovely ladies from the Project Life groups on Facebook had brought to my attention that there is a FREE app for your smart phone called DAY ONE that can help you keep track of your events and photos that you can use for your Project Life pages.. I uploaded mine last week and I have to say, as long as I remember to use it, its a great app...
