GIVE AWAY + This months guest designer

Happy July everyone,
This is going to be an exciting month for us here at GCD, because this month we start our new kit give aways/contest. Each month we will have a kit that our 2 guest designers and 1 DT gal will be working with and you (our readers) will have a chance to win it.

There will be a link to the right for each give away and all you need to do is play along with the month's challenge. Here is this months kit.
It's packed with all kinds of fun summer pattern papers and delightful embellishments. I had so much fun picking out all these items and I'm pretty sure most of you will love this :)

Now, let me introduce our guest designer this month. I'm excited to welcome
and here is her Bio:
Hey there all you GCD peeps, Elizabeth here! Right now I am working as a foreman with Starbucks, but soon I am about to leave the job force and start the school force! Going back to school full-time in the fall and am pretty excited about that journey! I am blessed to be married to a wonderful man whom I call my best friend, Dayv. Together we've got an awesome daughter Alyssa who is going to be a freshman in high school! Then we have our lovable pets, 3 of them all doggies! We live in WA where Dayv serves in the military. My family means everything to me and because of that, I found the love of scrapbooking so I can create a legacy of us and our journey together! I've been at it for over 10 years now and have surely changed through it as the sun rises!!! I love the freedom of expression with this hobby and to know that there really is no right or wrong way to do it! I've been blessed being published as well as worked with amazing manufactures and design teams over these years. Thank you for allowing me to share in this experience being a guest design team member!!!

And now... check out this amazing layout she made with this months kit. Isn't it so pretty?!
