DARE to read about this HUGE PRIZE???...

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday and even a few SWEET personal emails I received regarding the demise of the book I was writing.  You know...lesson learned.  I should have checked because when I first plugged in the External Hard drive it made this weird buzzing sound and it caught me off guard.   Turns out there was nothing wrong with it, but it distracted me just enough not to go back and check to see if those first few files got copied over.   I really am sick over it, but as my Grandma used to quote 'no use cryin over spilled milk"...LOL.  The milk is definitely spilled!  But, I'm on page 4 of my new (and IMPROVED) story and I hope some good will come of this.  It's got to, right?

Anyway, can you believe it's JUNE already?!  I know I sure can't!   Well, once again with summer having come around and the kids being EXTREMELY excited to get out to the pool everyday, basketball camps, writing camps, etc.  The DIEDRICH DARE will be taking a bit of a break....


We are issuing a challenge TODAY AND the 1st week of July to keep you busy...and just to keep you intrigued?  We have one HECK of a PRIZE!

Today's Challenge is a WONDERFUL inspiration piece that my sweet friend Sara sent to me because she knew I'd love what it said.  It just so happens it makes for an EXCELLENT summer challenge too!  Here's the photo:'s the deal.   You have ALL MONTH to play along.   There are NO restrictions on number of entries, etc.  You just have to link it up here and we have to be able to see the inspiration piece somewhere on your card or project.

Entries will be accepted until JUNE 30th, 2010 at 8pm CST.

The catch?  Well, ok, it's NOT a's more like LOOT....TONS OF IT!  CHECK THIS OUT:

I used the SUPER cute new Oliver and Amelia set "My Favorite Thing", just released yesterday from The Greeting Farm!  Isn't she sweet?
