Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E.

For my project today I made 2 12X12 layouts. I had so much putting them together. I wanted to make something that would fit the theme of out hop. I think my layouts say it all on how our weather here in California is. My first LO show that its a rainy day and it's porring! Like it should be this weekend. I tried to make the raincoat look just like my daughter. I dont have a pic on these layouts because  I haven't printed them out. Im sooo bad on doing that. I always print out like around 100 pic lol

On the second layout I made it look like a nice sunny day with all the beautiful flowers that are starting to bloom right now. We also have had summer kind of day in this time of month. Can you believe that! So our weather is a lil crazy and it changes quick. So I think that just fits perfect to our challenge.
