Sunshine & Giggles & Secrets

I decided to join the designer contest at Sunshine Studio Scraps last week! I've never done a designer contest and thought it would be a good way to challenge myself plus SSS looks like a fun place to be with a ton of really great designers!

Our first challenge was posted Friday and I got mine done and posted today. I don't know the number exactly, but there must be about 30-40 designers participating in this! How exciting to be among them! All the entries thus far are looking so great, so if you're not a member of SSS, you should go sign up and you'll be able to DL all the minis from this first challenge free!

Mine is called Giggles & Secrets. Now, I must admit that I always have a very hard time naming my kits. I have no idea why, but naming things have always been difficult for me. My husband chose the name for my photography business when I couldn't come up with anything better than Snapshots photography! lol. Then, when I was pregnant, I can't tell you how many times I cried myself to sleep thinking that my child would go his whole life without a name! (Can you say irrational pregnancy hormones?!?)

So as I sat at my computer staring at the kit, trying to feel out a name, I was hit by how it reminded me of a friendship. So I got out my trusty "Word" book and looked under the heading friendship. And there it was.... "Giggles & Secrets" What better way is there to describe a playful and intimate friendship among women?!

Anyway, here's a look at the mini kit. It has 5 papers and 10 elements, and you can get the FREE download link by logging in to the gallery at Sunshine Studio Scraps and navigating to this image in the "Missions" gallery. If you like it, leave me a comment there! And if you scrap with it, submit it to the SSS sub-gallery just for layouts done with the Missions kits.

Also, because I love this kit so much, I decided to make a few QPs to go with it! The QPs you can get here by clicking on the preview (sorry, link has expired)... but remember, the kit preview will take you to SSS where you will have to get the link. Hope you like!
