July's Challenge is "Anything Goes"

!This post will stay pinned until the challenge closes!

Can you believe 2012 is half-way over and summer is upon us and depending on where you are that can be a welcomed thing or not. We have a lot to get excited about because the time to celebrate America is here as well as the Olympics being held in England. Celebrations all around the world so lets celebrate by doing things differently.  We will have a drawing on the 15th (we will select the winner on the morning of the 16th from eligible entries) and then again at the end of the challenge on the 30th of July. That automatically gives you 2 chances to win if you enter early, but there's more ways to win!
July's Challenge is to celebrate the Olympics and the Fourth of July, therefore this is going to be the one everyone loves....that's right you guessed it....ANYTHING GOES!  And for the first time (drum roll please)....... Mema's Crafts has a sponsor!

This month we have the honor of being sponsored by KennyK!!!!!!

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations! 
The creator, the artist, the man: KennyK is a NYC-born professional illustrator who has brought his funky-but-slick, urban-influenced look to the cardmaking and papercrafts world.

His signature style can be seen throughout his various collections of sexy pinup babes, sweet'n sassy girls, cool rockin'dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more at KennyKDownloads.com.  

But before we start July's challenge I guess I should announce the winners for June's "Just Words" challenge. I hope you all had a chance to look at the entries because they were gorgeous.As promised we are announcing two winners and they are as follows:
  • First Place Winner By Random Draw is #18 Lisa W. Congratulations you have won a gift cerificate to your choice of either Saturated Canary, Mo Manning or Kenny K. (make your choice and let me know at memascrafts@gmail.com)
  • Second Place Winner By Vote is #15 Marsha D. Your entry was selected by my grand-daughters and you have won a certificate for Kenny K digital images.

    (winners must claim their prize no later than July 8th).  Ladies please use the email button to contact Mema or send an email to memascrafts@gmail.com.  Also don't forget to grab my winners badge (left sidebar) and add it to your blog.
Now back to July's "Anything Goes" Challenge. The standard rules are located in the left sidebar and the only other rules are as follows:

1.  Please make sure that you link to the URL of your project, not your blog; this will make it easier to locate your entry!
2.  You may Enter THREE Project and you can combine your entry with as many other challenges as you please. 
3.  Don't forget to add a link back to our challenge on your blog.
4.  No backlinking! New Entries Only. We consider new entries to be any project made after June 30th 2012. 
6.  If you haven't already, join my group of lovely followers

You do not need a blog to participate. Read the directions in the left sidebar to see how you can join the fun without a blog.  You can use any image but.... if you use a Kenny K image, then that entry will be counted twice which means you can double your chances of winning up to 15 times.  
Visit Kenny K downloads to download your freebie.  Kenny provides a freebie every month.  So what exactly do you win in this challenge.
Two winners (one drawn on the 15th and one drawn on the 30th) will receive digital images from Kenny K (shown below). These fabulous images are just in time to celebrate the Olympics or Fourth of July.
My girls and I have created a couple of cards that we hope will help you get your creative mojo juices flowing.
