Fun crafty things to do this Summer x

Happy Tuesday from a very, very warm and sunny Somerset. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and that it brings a smile to your face. It has been raining way too long.

So today marks the beginning of a jam packed Summer of crafting because Maria has launched this years Scavenger hunt. Yes, the annual photography hunt starts right now. If you've never taken part then remedy that right away by popping over to Maria's blog and reading all the information. It is the funnest and easiest photography adventure ever and I have completed it for the past 2 years.

Also just started is a new free class on UK Scrappers from the wonderful Shimelle Laine. It is called ''Break it down'' and is designed to aid scrapbookers to identify the elements within making a layout by breaking it down into smaller pieces. Yesterday we chose photos for a theme and today we are looking at colours. This class wil run over the next 6 weeks, it started yesterday. If you have never taken one of Shimelle's classes then this is your opportunity to dsicover why we all love her for free and then you may just become an addict and take her new class which she will be launching soon on her website.

Also coming in the next few weeks, is my friend Jennifer's class called ''Projects that WOW!'' For £10.00 you will be treated to some amazing layouts and makes over 3 weeks from the 10th June with pdfs and videos. Pop over to Jennifer's blog at the moment and take part in the bloghop for the class where you could win a free class place ~ score!

Finally another new class from Kristin at ''rukristin papercrafts''. I found Kristin's blog via Project Life several months ago and I've been hooked ever since. Kristin's blog is full of really great ideas on making PL work for you, she makes stamps and designs her own PL cards some of which you can download. She has a very individual style which I really love. I did a class on making accordian fold minibooks which was brilliant and now she is going to be running a brand new class called ''Find Your Voice'' a free 8 week class all about storytelling and you know how much I love doing that.

I hope I will see you joining at least one of these fun activities.
