Queen of Paradise Island Challenge! - Come Play Along!

You are suddenly stranded on a beautiful island paradise when your scrapping vacation cruise ship sinks unexpectedly…

You may not have saved your clothes, but you managed to save your scrap supplies! You decide you love it in Paradise and never want to leave… but there is a tribe of natives who would rather you go.

They become intrigued by your luxurious pattern papers and your guillotine style paper trimmers and decide that ONE member of your cruise may stay and become their Queen…

Come join us at Croppin Paradise for our annual summer scrapping survivor-style challenge! There will be 4 big winners, including one Queen of Paradise! Scrap your way through our challenges, win immunity, risk being voted off the island, make some new friends and maybe even win the crown!

Hope to see you all there!

Summer Continues to Sizzle!

The Croppin Paradise Design Team is keeping the summer sizzling with these fabulous collections!

Do your summer plans include fun in the sun? vacations in exotic locations? or cool summer treats?

Lisa, Carolyn and Kathy created these fun pages with the KI Memories Juicy Collection. I love how bright and summery these papers and embellishments are! They are perfect for capturing sizzling summer fun!

Do your summer plans include a dip in the pool? or how about a trip to the ocean?

Maegan created this adorable pool page using the Bo Bunny Popsicle Collection... I love the bright colors and movement in this collection!

Are your summer plans a bit more subdue? No worries... the My Mind's Eye Andrea Victoria Collection is perfect to record those weddings and special relationships!

Andrea and I both created projects documenting special relationships. This line is much prettier in real life than it appears and while the main colors are gold/mustard, white/brown and a greyish color, there are several colors that can be added to make it pop!

Hope your summer is full of many scrappable memories - and remember, no matter what you are trying to capture, Croppin Paradise has the supplies for sizzling summer pages!
