For this project, I decided to try to finish a minialbum, I've started last year for the Summer Fun Bloghop...  LOL talking about procrastinating LOL
My plan was to finish it for this hop, well, I just manage to finish the back-cover finally...
I saw this digital images for the Beach Crab set from this month's sponsor and decided to use it here:

I uploaded the images in Design Space and tried to print & cut, but couldn't get my explorer to collaborate and cut:

So, I ended up fussy cutting them and made a collage with the this printed Galveston page, a cardboard addition from Heart of Texas, and some cabochons from Connie's ebay store. I added some rock candy to the cardboard word and some glitter to the CDD cuts, as well as some distressing with goldrush CTMH ink:

The Port Bolivar lighthouse is also a cut from the Heart of Texas minialbum kit.

I added some images I'd bought too:

The crab is supposed to be holding the sign LOL. cute image

I hope you enjoyed this page and this fun hop...

For this challenge, I decided to make a new (to me) type of card, I saw in the Tattered Lace Magazine, a pyramid card:
I used CTMH papers:

Here a copy of the magazine: 

The front of the card. I used Crafting Desert Divas: Sweet-wishes.

One side:

and the last side punched with a Martha Steward punch:

How the card looks when flat:

Completely folded for mailing:

I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join Connie's challenge.

I'm entering the following challenges myself:

Design Team: God bless the USA layout

Hi Scrappers, 
This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion show my previous creation for Connie's Let Freedom Ring challenge:

 I used Miss Kate Cuttables' God bless the USA title SVG File, to make a title for the second page of a double page layout I designed for this challenge:

I added some dimension using liquid glass (CTMH) and I also used the Artbooking CTMH cart (which you can get from Connie here) to make the picture frames and to design my whole double layout. Papers are also from CTMH. I used the negative cuts from the hot-air balloon stars randomly to add some extra interest. 

A closer look to my title. I wasn't very careful with the glue, but I still got the dimension:

many blessings,
