Cute Monkey!

Eek! What a fun day it is today! Today is three fun things for me...today I volunteer at Care Net, today is the limeLIGHT big project for August reveal AND limeLIGHT sketch and product challenge. Whew...that is a lot of neato stuff in one day! I know you must wonder why I enjoy Care Net so much and I thought I'd try to explain today. Where else can you go that they look forward to you coming in and need your help, that people are there to teach you and are gentle with correction, and most importantly they live their personal and work lives for the good of our Lord? Yep, that is the environment that I work in on Thursday 11-3. It is a a refreshing like none other!

Now...onto limeLIGHT Papercrafts challenges for the day. First I want to show off the August big project and the theme which is back to school. When I heard this is what we were going to do I was so excited! I love to make things for the boys (mostly Kyler as he's the only one that lets me anymore) for school so...here it is! I made a fun little bag for Kyler to carry some of his supplies in to the first day of school. While I'm not sure it is especially necessary for Kyler I can also use it as a bag for a first day of school gift for the teacher. I used the Stampendous Chantigo in Space set along with October Afternoon's Road Map patterned paper. The sentiment I made on my computer. limeLIGHT also sells some letters HERE. Isn't it wonderful? You could fit a bunch of supplies in this bag for sure!

Now...the sketch and product challenge for today is the card below. I, again, used the Chantigo in Space set with Road Map patterned paper. This time I added a Road Maps shapes piece for the sentiment. Now...the product challenge is paint so...See the yellow sparkle and shimmer around the rocket image? Yep, that is Shimmerz in Sunny! Just the perfect touch! Now the details of the sketch and product challenge...

The Details:
**Use the sketch found HERE and dress it up with PAINT!! Shimmerz, watercolors, craft paint...whatever ya got!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC027
**Post a comment with a link to your card on THIS post by Sunday, August 9, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
**PRIZE ~
One jar of Shimmerz paint AND one bottle of Shimmerz Spritz of the winner's choice! (Winner is chosen randomly from all participants.)

Finally...I'm going to link you up to all of the design team members for even more wonderful inspiration! Go see...Mandy, Tiffany, Ryann, Lisa, Lee, and Amy. JenMarie is taking this month off but she'll be back next month!

So...are you going to play along? You better go get started! I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and I'll see ya soon!

And then it had one orange one that was appliqued and it's feet hang out over the innertube! LOL...she hugged it and wrapped up in it until bedtime when I took it to wash it for the first time! Talke about MONKEY MADNESS!! MADNESS, I tell You!! LOL

Anyway, have a fun day at Care Net Lorie. I'm sure they appreciate you so much and your service to the Lord will be rewarding. :) TTYL!
