It's time for another CK Blog Issue Blitz!!  I'm so excited because I've had a chance to look through the new July/August Issue and it is really fantastic!  BTW, I absolutely LOVE the option to get the digital CK magazine!  It is so handy to be able to pull up inspiration whereever I am.

So I am offering up a copy of this new CK issue to a randomly selected winner!  Just leave a comment on my blog about what is your favorite summertime activity!  I'll select a winner on Saturday, so please check back in on Saturday to see if you've won!

Here is a link to the CK store where you can purchase this issue. And a link to the CK on-line extras where you can find contests, downloads and techniques based on this issue.


So I did a couple of LOs based on the wonderful inspiration in this Issue.

First, I love the sketches and while I didn't need to do a 2 page LO like the sketch, I did like one side of the LO. This is one of the LOs in the Issue based on sketch done by Shelley Jacquet.

and my LO based on the sketch - right side which I flipped for my photo orientation.

and I really love the "My Hero" article by Joannie McBride.  To me, it's so important to honor those that make a difference in our lives and scrapbooking allows me to do just that.  I love this LO done by Jana Morton of her Role Model and I knew photos of my grandfather would be perfect.  He was obtained his Ph.D in Chemistry in the 1930's - very inspirational for an African American back at that time!  And he inspired me to get my degree in Chemistry, too.

Here is my LO.

I know I'll find lots more wonderful ideas to scraplift in this Issue.
