Quickpage Tuesday

This week I used the cheery, colorful kit Nancy’s Happy Day by Erin of scrappyweiss designs. The colors in this kit just brighten any mood.


Erin hosted a speed scrap in the forums on Friday, which I sadly missed, but I decided to play along after the fact, and used her instructions to create this week’s quickpage. If you haven’t joined us for our weekly speed scraps you really should. we have tons of fun, end up with a totally great array of layouts, there are usually several designers hanging out giving away their newest kits and coupons, and there is a participation prize to everyone that plays along! Watch the SPEED SCRAPS forum for details on Friday 7/17 speed scrap with Mel of A+ Designs!

Ok, so here is what I created for you!

Grab your quickpage HERE! Don’t forget to check in next week, I will be hanging out with my family at the lake, but I will still have a goodie for you!!
