For my project today, I created a fun filled card!!!!

To create my card, I used scraps from my scrap box.  The background paper is DCWV, but sorry, I don't remember which stack it came from.  My cute little ball and pail was cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge and I added some Peachy Keen faces!  My sentiment is from K Andrews Stamps and last but not least, I added a couple of flower sequins. 
In addition to the grand prize, I have some surprise candy to give away, just leave me a message telling me what is your favorite summertime activity!  I won't require you to become a follower but should you choose to I would greatly appreciate it!!

Don't forget to leave a message on all the blogs in the hop to be eligible to win the Grand Prize!  The winners will be posted here on my blog Tuesday, August 20, 2013!
