First of all, today is the last day that the TNS MouseScrappers store is open. This is your last chance to pick up several kits that are MouseScrappers exclusives!

Smooth Sailing and a Winner

Lahni posted a sneak peak on Monday. Did it wet your whistle? That makes me think of the new Flo Rida song, Whistle. I admit it, I whistle along when I hear it. The music video was shot in Acapulco, Mexico and has some beautiful cliffside homes and ocean waves in it, which totally ties in with today's new release from Queen Wild Scraps. This kit has a fun nautical theme and if you're so inclined, a bit of a patriotic feel too. It is perfect for those photos at the lake, taking a cruise or just plain swimming. Plus there are enough non-theme elements to make whatever kind of layout your heart desires.You have a chance to pick it up on sale. It is 30% off this weekend (Friday-Sunday).
Here's the kit preview. Don't you just love those little fish?
And a close-up of the papers.
Check out what the Wild Princesses did with this kit:
In the sneak peak, Lahni asked what your favorite part of summer was. From spending time with grandchildren (or kids), to sleeping in, to getting wet at the beach or the pool; the answers were wildly different. I used to select a winner from the 11 comments.
Amy F send queen.wild a private message over at Scraps-N-Pieces and Lahni will get you your coupon code. You have until next Friday to claim your prize.
