Good Morning and Happy Monday to you :) Yep, it's been awhile since I have been on the blog, I haven't felt to good. Seems to me that Spring/Summer colds are worst than Winter colds. But enough about me I wanted to tell you of a new challenge over at Creative Cutting Challenge:
While the regular challenge is taking the summer off,  we're going to try something new!
So, how does this special monthly Challenge work? 
You can enter any project, from any date* (back linking allowed!) as long as you use an electronic cutting file from The Creative Pointe.  So if you've purchased or grabbed a freebie from one of our almost two hundred files, you can play along.  
If you haven't got a Creative Pointe file to use, grab one of these for free:  
We want to see what you create (or have created) with our files!  
I's your June chance to STRUT YOUR (Creative Pointe) STUFF!  
Two fabulous prizes will be awarded by random drawings each month this summer.
You'll have to go over to the blog to see what you could win!
This layout was made off of yesterday's LOAD prompt: all about Cover Art: Duran Duran was THE teeny bopper band of the 80s, and they knew how to use art on their album covers. Remember Rio? That’s the album with the woman’s portrait by Nagel on the cover. Let’s take our cue from that and make a page with a huge self-portrait or portrait of someone you love.
I didn't have a huge photo of Amber or the paper to make the photo, so I combined two of my favorite pictures from facebook of her, senior picture and graduation.  I used part of Creative Pointe's Be-YOU-tiful file for my title:

You can check out her other files over at her pinterest board:
All the elements of this layout came from all old counterfeit kit challenge kits. They got a new kit up today if you would like to take on the challenge of counterfeiting a kit!
 It was so cool to see Amber's cap, that is so her and the title is just perfectly fitting for her.
I did some fussy cutting to put the I Did It on the tag that holds the journaling and a couple of pieces from the Maggie Holmes Flea Market packet of diecuts. I made one mistake and corrected it after taking the picture. Amber got accepted at STI for Diesel Technology! Way to go Amber!
That's right boys you better look out cause her comes our Amber! we are so proud of our granddaughter and your accomplishments. 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see your creations over at Creative Cutting Challenge.
