National Wildlife Federation Charity Collab

Dawn of Daybreak Scraps had an idea to do a charity collab to benefit NWF and it has arrived at Funky Playground Designs!
All Creatures Great and Small is a charity collaboration to benefit the National Wildlife Federation and is exclusively available for sale at Funky Playground Designs through July 18th.

According to the National Wildlife Federation:
Millions of gallons of oil have oozed into the water since the April 20th rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Some estimates calculate the oil flow to be over 70,000 barrels of oil a day—making the BP spill already eight times larger than Exxon Valdez!

And we still don't know when it will stop.

The wildlife casualties are adding up. Oil has officially hit land, and numerous sea turtles, dolphins and migratory birds have all been reported dead or dying on gulf beaches. Sadly, this is just the beginning of the uphill battle wildlife in the region now face.

Please donate today to help protect the over 400 species of treasured wildlife that stand to lose so much from this devastating tragedy. Your support will go right to work protecting wildlife and wild places impacted by the BP oil spill disaster.
The profits from the sale of this collaboration will go directly to the National Wildlife Federation and the receipt will be posted on the Funky Playground blog after the donation has been made.

Contributing Designers are: 4 Shades of Blue, Caged Bird Designs, Daybreak Scraps, Ellie Lash, Edeline Marta Designs, EH Studios, Girl Boy Girl Designs by Jen Balding, Jaclyn Bernardo, Jennilyn Designs, Kiss This Designs, Mad Genius Designs, Michelle Batton, Scrappin' Daisies Designs, Secret Garden, Shanmomto4 Designs and Siamese Studio.

Sugar Sugar

I had the opportunity to guest CT for Scrappy Cocoa on this fun collab that she did with Flower Scraps. It is called Sugar Sugar! And it is FUN!! It has lots of bright colors and fun doodley elements. The tags are some of my favorites. This kit is available at Steph's store at Gingerscraps as well as The Studio. And here are the layouts I did with this kit.
This one is made with a template by Scrappy Cocoa for the Template Challenge at Gingerscraps!

Have a great day and Happy Scrapping!!!
