You can call me mellow yellow (BLOG CANDY!!!)

Read below for your chance to win some blog candy or another prize.
UPDATE 6/3/09- Strike that, Mr Linky is gone again! Please just comment and leave your link there or send me an email with a picture of your creation to katieannbrooks@gmail.com.

This post will remain at the top until June 5th, scroll down for more recent posts.

I have been really enjoying the sun lately, I am so glad it is here. It makes me wonder how I get through the other 2/3 of the year when the sun is hidden behind the clouds. Somehow though I do it, we all do over here in the NW. Maybe it just makes me more appreciative of when the sun is out. I think that is probably right because I have been in a daze these days wondering what we can do outside, when to grill, etc. Rjght now I am really drawn to the color yellow. Today, I bought my daughter some yellow sandals. Here they are, aren't they cute with the blue and yellow dress, next to the yellow slide. I love her (of course), she is so cute!



Since I have been so consumed with yellow I decided to have a contest which features the color (insert guess here...). Yep, you guessed it, YELLOW! I sent this information out in my newsletter to my customers, but I open it up to you as well.

The challenge is this- create a card, scrapbook page, other creation featuring the color yellow and/or the sun. If you have some SU! product please use it, but if you don't you can still play and it won't effect your chances. Your entry must be submitted using Mr. Linky below or by sending me the picture in an email to katieannbrooks@gmail.com by June 5, 2009. There will be 2 winners. One will be selected randomly and the other will be my favorite of all entries. The first will receive a roll of SU! 1/4" grossgrain ribbon from SU (your color choice) purchased with my next order, the latter will receive the blog candy shown below. Start Creating!



This is the creation I made. The circle with the flowers inside was inspired by a creation from made by Kiara. You can find her amazing scrapbook page http://stampingcafe.blogspot.com/2009/05/color-inspiration-52.html.




Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to email or add your link to the comments by June 5th. Good Luck!!!

Hello it's me again!
Nice card, but especially one charming small girl in yellow and blue.I understand that you are in admiration in front of her: she is really "craquante" on this picture!
Take care and kisses to your daughter.
