The weather will be changing soon and the smell of candy apples inspired Melissa to begin creating these adorable new images that are perfect for the fall...

Our Design Team Members, found inspiration and all these projects magically appeared...

At the last-minute, Melissa surprised the Design Team with these three images...
 
 
 
 
"Brooke's Lost Tooth" was a suggestion made by our own Design Team Coordinator, Dee.  The two hermit crabs were inspired by the two newest pets in Melissa's house. 
 
From printer to posting, this card took Dee less than 30 minutes to create!  Now that's inspiring!
 
 
 
 

 
All these images and more are located in the Meljen's Designs Digi Shop now!

Go on over there and see what inspires you! 
Then come join us for this weeks "Anything Goes" Challenge!

We'd love to see what you create!

Meljen's Design - Watermelon Ant - Sweet Summertime

Hello everyone, it is time for Summertime Fun.  I created this cute card using "Watermelon Ant", he is ONLY $1.00.  My sentiment is computer generated.  I colored my image with Copic markers.  My designer paper is from Hobby Lobby.  I used a Spellbinder's Edgeabilities to create my scalloped edge.  My finishing touches are black pearls and green/white gingham ribbon.

Summer Fun

Happy Tuesday to you all. It's my (Nancy) turn to share my "Summer Fun" activity with you. Now I know this might not sound like a lot of fun to some of you but to me it is. You see I live in SW Ontario, Canada and summer in our area means lots of wonderfully delicious fresh fruits. It starts in June with strawberries and rhubarb. July brings raspberries, blueberries and cherries, August gives us peaches and pears. My daughters, granddaughter  and I love to go and "Pick Your Own". In fact it's actually become a "Summer Tradition" for us. After we've filled our baskets (which can take a bit of time considering how much "Taste Testing" we do) we go home and make jam. Lots and lots and lots of jam. Granted it is a bit of work but during the cold winter months it is such a delicious treat spread on nice warm toast.


This time we made Cherry Almond Jam


We ended up making 3 batches!


Some of the jams I make I like to give away as gifts so as soon as I saw Melissa's sweet image  "Baby Cherry Mouse", I knew it would make the perfect card to go along with a jar.
Here it is at a little different angle:

Well, that's it for me and my Summer Fun. Hope yours is going well and your making fun memories of your own.

hugs,
Nancy

Happy Birthday from our Guest Designer!

Who's got a birthday this month??

Patty is wishing all of you a Happy Birthday - and guest what?  Me too!  :)  Hehe!  It's not quite here yet, but my birthday is coming up soon!  I'm one of those weird people that, no matter how old I get, I still LOVE my birthday!  I look forward to it every year and I have never, ever, ever worked on my birthday!  Now that I'm not technically working, I'm a stay-at-home-Mom, I may still be doing my "job" on my birthday, but being with my family is still much more fun!  My birthday is one of my favorite days of the year and how excited was I to see this week's card from Patty!!


So, Patty, even though I know this card wasn't made for ME - I still have to say "Thank You" for bringing a birthday smile to my face a few days early!

Hugs to you all and Happy Birthday to my fellow August friends!

Hugs,
Dee

Summer at the Beach

Hey all,  it's Jessica here. I have some sunny fun to share with you today. I love that the theme here this month is Summer. It is quite fitting that today would be my DT day since I am leaving later this afternoon for a weekend at the coast with my family. I made this card in honor of our trip.

Now of course the Oregon Coast does not have palm trees and private islands like the image Sun Fun Island but it does have sun and sand. I can't wait to get my feet on that beach and dig my toes in as the waves come up.

Here is a pic of where we are headed this weekend.


This picture was from last summer, which is the last time my kids have been to the beach. They are really looking forward to going this weekend. We are going to take the kids to a part of the coast that they have not explored. The main plan is to explore Fort Stevens, an old military fort dating back to the Civil War. There the kids will be able to see a historic shipwreck, named the Peter Iredale. 



And a 90 + year old gun battery that served as a World War II command center. 





Thanks for hanging out with me today and I hope that you all have had some amazing adventures this  summer. If you haven't then get out there and  explore.
