New Layouts, and a RAK!

Happy Thursday!

**Please continue reading, but don't miss the RAK contest at the end of this post**

If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know what I usually avoid posting anything political. But last night I came across this video on Facebook, and I think it is worth sharing. It is a segment of a recent 20/20 show discussing the proposed national healthcare that President Obama is working so hard to pass right now. I think it provides some valuable food for thought for all American Citizens right now.

Moving on, here are a couple of new layouts;

Have you noticed a theme? I find myself using a lot of white backgrounds lately!

Ok, on to the RAK! This layout below I created last night for Your Scrapbook Stash's Basic Grey contest. As you can see, most of the layout is BG's new June Bug collection, which I finally got me hands on! BUT there are also 3 other BG collections represented in this layout. So, to be entered to win, you must email me at upordown777@yahoo.com and tell me what the names of those other 3 collections represented are. All correct entries will be put into a drawing to win. Have fun guessing! (a tip: Everything except the white cardstock and the pen and paint are BG)

*** Edited to add: To make it a little easier, I am now giving one entry for each correct guess. So even if you only get one right, you will be entered to win!***

Curious as to what the RAK might be? The winner will receive their choice of two available mini-album kits from MAMBI. I have the Grandparents one (top left) and the wedding one (bottom right. I will also throw in a few other goodies, including a Maya Road keychain mini album!
Happy Guessing!
