OK - so...it's the end of June.  It's summer - kind of...  :)  We have been experiencing A LOT of rain here in central Alberta and the temperatures are FINALLY starting to climb! Yay! Since it is the end of June, that can only mean one thing....can ya guess?!?


4 CCC #96 - "SCHOOL'S OUT!!"

It's Miss Melissa's turn to offer a prize this month so here's what one lucky participant will win from her stash:


 For my card - I decided to go with a new image from My Favorite Things that, to me, indicates what A LOT of kids will be doing over the summer holidays - chatting and texting amongst friends, setting up beach days, movie nights, etc. 



Now, let's check out what Alethea and the rest of the DT have come up with for your viewing pleasure - but before I get to that, I would just like to say, on behalf of ALL OF US CHICKS, a HUMUNGOUS THANK YOU to Alethea for all of her gorgeous creations this past month!!

Winners of Challenge #95 - By The Sea

Good afternoon fellow bloggers.  Welcome to 4 Crafty Chicks for the announcement of our TOP 3 picks.

Thank you to everyone who shared their By The Sea creations.  We had scrapbook pages and several different style of cards; each and everyone of them a master piece.  We 4 Chicks don't live by an ocean or even right on a lake but last night we had our own here in central Alberta.  The skies opened up and dumped a huge amount of rain in a short period of time.  Our streets were filled and well I guess it was the next best thing to a lake or the sea....LOL.

Onto our fabulous winners:


Fabulous summer colors, wonderful layout and oh your image is super cute. Incredible coloring on your image. The little details on your card, like the sun, buttons, tag and shell are just too perfect. Wonderful inspiration!


Loving the neutral colors that you used and the way you tore the paper looks like a patch of sand.  Beautiful sentiment and wonderful details with the shells.  Your coloring is stunning on your image. Fabulous inspiration!


Fabulous layout! Love the paper you chose for this card, the anchor charm and the image you colored is incredible.  This image is stunning and it truly in my opinion looks like an amazing stamp. Love the punched edges around the image. Another amazing idea on your card is that you popped up the lighthouse to make it look 3-D.  Marvelous inspiration for us all!

Congratulations, ladies! Please grab your Golden Egg badge and display it proudly on your blog! We'd love it if you could link it back to our challenge blog too.


Thanks to all who participated in our "By The Sea" Challenge. We will see you tomorrow morning for our new challenge! Be sure to stop on over to see what our new Guest Designer has to share with us!
