Helllo July!!!!

Happy July, everyone! Well, this month has been lovely, so far! We just came back from a great vacation and I'm still off for the next few days! Woot Woot!!! So that means I actually have time to scrap! GASP! Now when I last left you I mentioned a giveaway...right? Yep, and I have not forgotten about it...I should have that post up tomorrow! Yay! In the meantime I have actually taken my Cameo out of the box!!!! OMG...yep, I've had this little cutie sitting here for months and finally today was the day! And guess what?

It came with the wrong type of AC adapter! Seriously? My luck, I tell ya! But anyways, I have emailed Silhouette, so hopefully they will get me the correct one soon! In the meantime I just borrowed one from another tool!

So, there are a ton of DT projects and challenges that I plan to complete in the next couple of days! Here's my first challenge project for the week: I made this tag primarily for Tim's Twelve Tags of 2012! I didn't have any of the products he used this month, so I improvised and interpreted it my way to celebrate the 4th of July! Woot! Sorry for the horrible lighting on this...I started on it, went to the movies, and came home to finish it up and of course it's night time now which equals horrible lighting! Pooey!!!
Supplies: Tag: Ranger; Mist: Studio Calico, Dylusions, Ink: Ranger; Stamps and Wood Veneer: Studio Calico; Washi Tape: SMASH; Die Cut: Cameo (was a Silhouette blog freebie a few weeks ago! Woot!); Chipboard: Maya Road; Twine: Divine Twine

Entering into the following challenges:
Tim's Twelve Tags of 2012
Simon Says Stamp Vintage Challenge- use misting
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog- Tag
Paper Issues- Transparency (used some polka dot SMASH washi tape)
Cameo Creations Challenge- Anything Goes

Alrighty, well hopefully this will be a very productive night of completing a few more projects, preparing the giveaway, and playing with the Cameo a bit more! Night Night!
