The Great Summer Stash Giveaway!

Lately my scrapbooking room has gotten completely out of control. So out of control that I can't actually scrapbook in there! I go in and pull out supplies and then take over the dining room table to actually work and put pages together. So I thought it was time to take action and take back my scrapbooking space!

I started to go through items, making tons of piles, finding products I had totally forgotten about, finding immediate inspiration in other items, but then found products I purchased for very specific projects that I've long ago completed and I also found items that I had several of so I started another pile - A Giveaway Pile!!

A few weeks ago I was very lucky to win a giveaway on the lovely Curious Key blog and after receiving my amazing package of goodies I was inspired to host a giveaway of my own. So in celebration of Summer, in celebration of you my awesome readers and in celebration of being able to see the table in my scrapbooking room again I give you The Great Summer Stash Giveaway!!!

Just leave a comment on this post sharing your favorite Summer memory or Summer tradition and I will randomly select 4 lucky winners! Each will receive a package packed with goodies from my stash! I will choose winners this Saturday!

Here are a few photos of some of the items! GOOD LUCK!

Wow great giveaway Danielle. My favorite summer memory is having a family reunion at the cottage we used to go to as kids. I had a treasure hunt just like my Mom used to do with us each summer only this time it was with her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. It brought back so many great memories.

We love to drive over to Grills at the Port to eat and watch the cruise ships and boats. Actually, we do this year round, not just in the summer, but I really want some of your stash, hahaha!

Our summer tradition for several years now has been taking some sort of fun and relaxing vacation. We made trips to Florida to visit you fine folks :) To the Bahamas, to Bermuda, to Aruba to name a few. Three years ago we also got married and had a beautifully relaxing Mediterrean honeymoon during the summer months.

This year however is the beginning of some new traditions. We still managed to get a change of scenery but it involved moving into a new home for our growing family. So hopefully by next year we can continue the relaxing tradition after our little girl makes her grand entrance into the world.

Any ideas? :)

Favorite Summer Memories. When I was a child, we didn't have a great deal of money and so we did not take vacations to fancy places like disney world. But we didn't know we were missing out on anything because we always found fun summer things to do, the best and most often one was going to the beach. We went often, me, and my brother and sisters. An afternnon at the beach was great fun, on windy days there was always kite flying and jumping in the waves. My mother would lay on a blanket and watch as we splashed in and out, found shells and built sand castles. So, like I said, summers for us was a magical time full of fun and we were water princesses and prices. The best summers ever! Louella Turvey

Summer time.... well i have to say we try and let me stress that, my hubby and i try to gather all the grandkids (13) of them for at least one full day of fun in the sun. To see all of them together on the beach making sandcastles or body surfing is a blast. We take tons of pics and then i put them in a book to share with them. They are amazed to see how much they have changed year to year. We just accomplished this task this past week at atlantic beach.... Netty
