Simply Sunday Challenge: Banners and Pennants Awesome GIVEAWAYS!!!!

Hi everyone! It's time for another Simply Sunday Challenge! I hope each of you are having a fabulous Sunday. Sunday's are the best, and so many wonderful things happen on Sunday. I want to announce the winner for the last Simply Sunday Challenge: Retro Daddy! Our winner is #36 Kathy of 3Kids!! Look at her gorgeous card! She wins the limited edition Father's Day Cartridge! Kathy contact me for your prize and guest designer blinkie! I can't wait to have you with us next week!!!

Now it's time for a new challenge! Who is ready? This weeks' Simply Sunday Challenge is all about pennants and borders of any size or shape on any project! How is that for fun? We have a FABULOUS prize package (two of them to be exact) for the Winner from our amazing sponsor Flying Unicorn!
My design team members did an amazing job making some fun and inspiring projects, and my DT coordinator Brenda did a great job getting everything together! I'm so happy to have such an amazing group of girls with me! Remember, if you have an interest in being on the next Getting Cricky DT just to be active here at the blog with comments, challenges, etc because that is who we will look at first.

Now on to my project for this fun challenge! I received this fun paper pack from Echo Park called Summer Time. I love Echo Park's paper packs and The Flying Unicorn carries them all with free shipping. I LOVE that she does free shipping as paper can get expensive to ship!! I used the Summer Time Echo Park collection kit and it had everything I needed. I made this layout in about 20 minutes total! eeek! Love that! I also have a ton of papers and elements left over--enough for atleast 6 more pages for sure!

Before I pop on to my AMAZING design team...I wanted to take the time to tell you that I hope each of you will really take this amazing lazy summer to the best advantage...take time to just relax, enjoy your family, and just do absolutely nothing for one full day. You can do that, can't you? Do absolutely nothing but sit outside, watch the wind blow, see the sun shine, and appreciate this amazing world God has given us. There are lots of litle miracles all around us...if only you open your eyes, ears, and take a few minutes to just slow down to see all the ways that God is crying out to every day. The birds song...he made for you to hear today.  The warmth of the sun shining on you..he made for you to feel today. The sound of your loved one's voice...he made for you to listen to. The beautiful green grass...he made for your eyes to relax upon.
Go ahead, get ready for the wonderful lazy days of summer. A time to appreciate all of God's miracles, and those you love!
