I'll start right off with the good stuff. The winner (chosen at random.org) of the $20.00 My Favorite Things gift certificate for the Papercraft Star Christmas in July Blog Hop is Goatesgirl.
She said, " love this card...I did the sports themed challenge last week and I have an idea circulating in my head now for this weeks circle challenge if I can find the time to do it...thanks"

I would like to sincerely thank all of you for participating in our big Christmas in July Blog Hop! I hope that during the hop you had a chance to stop by all of our Design Team's Christmas projects and to look around the Papercraft Star blog as well. Maybe you even joined our Forum that is growing with each passing week.
At Papercrarft Star, we roll out a new challenge (posted weeks in advance on the sidebar of the blog) every Wednesday. On Saturdays the public is allowed to vote for their favorite project and the winner is awarded with a Papercraft Star People's Choice Award button for their blog as well as some sweet prizes every now and again. And if that isn't enough... every three weeks the Judges (that's me and Kristina) choose our favorite from the previous three People's Choice Winners to receive the Paper Craft Star Winner button. We hope you'll join us for our next challenge that officially begins on Wednesday July 28.
In other news, my last Gone Scrapbooking Creative Team project to hit cyberspace on Examiner.Com is a "Life Sweeter" card. I created this for my Aunt. She does so many sweet and thoughtful things for my family and me. I just love to create paper crafts for her to let her know how much she is appreciated!
I loved how the Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores color that makes me so happy came together with the Basic Grey's Basic Manila paper. I used some new WPlus9 Design Studio stamps for the sentiment. It's a darling set and one of the first I ever purchased from them. The little banner I cut using the Cricut Calligraphy Collection.
Okay...now I'm off to try and walk in the footsteps of my beautiful Aunt and make someone else's life sweeter! Have a beautiful day and create something fabulous!
