Hi all!!! How’s your Thursday going? Mines very wet, been raining since yesterday… hello Summer in New England! lol But, I won’t complain, it’s actually been very hot here so far this summer, which is a very welcome change to the semi-warm & wet summers we usually get! Our plants definitely needed this rain! And it gave the kids & I a couple of days to hang out inside and recuperate from this nasty flu we came down with over the weekend But, I’m so over the staying inside thing now, there’s only so much “Ghostbusters” singing I can handle!! That’s right, my son is obsessed with Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters!!!! Like we should even be allowing a 6yo to watch Bill Murry anyway!! But, alas, I digress and admit to my love of all things Bill Murray!! I just can’t help it, that man knows the direct path to my funny bone, and I love him for it! And, apparently, I’ve passed on my love of Bill Murray to my son! He now wants to be Peter Venkman for Halloween!!
Enough talk of Ghostbusters, let’s get down to why I’m really here! We have a new Featured Designer Challenge happening right now with Piggy Scraps Designs!!! And I come bearing a brand new Featured Kit and FREEBIES! Woohooo!
Toiny, the talent behind Piggy Scraps Designs, is our next FEATURED DESIGNER! If you all don’t know, Toiny is our Fearless Leader, the Boss Lady, the owner of theStudio!! She is definitely our Rock, the person we go to whenever us “kids” get into trouble! Toiny took over as owner back when the site was still called Stone Accents Studio, over 2 years ago now! She was one of the Top 3 Winners of our Designer Contest back in 2009! And I was a HUGE fan of her designs even before I really knew who she was! She was one of my top picks throughout the entire contest, and I’m not just saying that to suck up! Seriously, I am in total love with her shabby, worn, distressed style! And her Featured Kit, Ladybugs Aren’t Red, shows off that style perfectly!! One lucky scrapper is going to have a chance to WIN this gorgeous kit just for posting a layout! Keep reading for the freebies!
