It's all about the KIDS!

Well this is a fun challenge for all of us scrappers! Put down your scissors, paper and glue and let someone else use them. Specifically, the kids in your life. And if you don't have your own kids no worries; think about nieces, nephews, grand kids, neighbors you babysit, whoever...let the kids in your life have a turn with the scrap goodies! You'll be surprised how good they are, and you will have a sweet memory to treasure forever! And I have a few fun prizes for a couple of them. I will let my twins choose two of the projects to win these super cool kits!

This is going to run from today through July 11th. Go ahead and make sure you add your link so I can find you work, or feel free to add the images straight up to the slideshow! Also, if you could include the child's age I would love that. I hope you all have fun working with your kids and that they have fun making their projects! I can't wait to see all the sweet stuff that is sure to pour in.
