Let's Party!!!

If you don't know by now that May is full of fun, games and great freebies it's not to late to get all the details and put them on your calendar. This month STS is turning 2 and to celebrate they are having a month long celebration. But the fun doesn't end there. Adriana's Cafe is celebrating her blogiversary all month also. Adriana and her CT will be hosting a different challenge each week, there will be freebies on her blog from the CT, facebook raks and each week there is a blog hop with a different kit. Today Adriana is hosting the first challenge on her blog for the month.

Here are the details:

Every Monday this month we're gonna challenge you with fun and creative challenges.
Today I'm here with a Use It or Lose It Challenge.
You have no idea how it works? It's easy! I'll give you a kit and you have to make a LO with everything that is in it! If you want you can duplicate anything, but YOU HAVE to use EVERYTHING at least once to create your layout.
This is a very special challenge because you can have two prizes, the first one everyone can have it, it's the kit you're gonna use for your LO and if you're the lucky one chosen by my CT you'll receive a $3.00 coupon to be used in my store.

1. You have to create a LO using all the papers and elements in the kit.
2. Post your LO in any gallery or photo sharing site, come back and put your link in the comments.
3. Don't forget to leave your e-mail, so I can contact you in case you win the challenge. If you don't want to publish your e-mail, just send me a message at
4. You have until Sunday the 8th at 11:59am EST to submmit your LO.
5. The winner will be announced on Monday.
And here is the kit you're gonna use for this challenge.

Head over to Adriana's blog to download Tropical Colors for the challenge. Adriana and her team look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Are you ready to read about all the fantastic things going on at STS for the month of May? I hope your computer chair is soft and comfy because there is so much excitement to share that this post is a little on the long side. But, I promise you wont regret taking the time to read it. May is STS's 2nd birthday celebration. We are partying all month long and hoping to see you there. First thing I would like to tell you about is STS's May Grab Bag. This grab bag is full of great commercial use items by various STS designers. The grab bag includes everything from elements to styles to paper textures to patters. All 33 wonderful items in the grab bag come in either png, jpg, psd, tiff or asl formats. This is a grab bag you don't want to miss and will use it's contents over and over again. The grab bag ad is linked to the store so you can add it to your own stash.

Check out this huge kit designed by the STS Designer Darlings. Fairy Tales is an adoreable collab and you can snag it for free. Go check out the STS forum and birthday celebration threads. If you complete 6 of 9 challenges you will recieve Fairy Tales as your prize. I have linked the kit preview to the forum for you.

Check out the birthday fliers to see all the fabulous fun we have planned for everyone who celebrates with us.

Here is the schedule for the weekly chat room events. Be sure to join the chats you never know what you might miss if you don't join in the chats.

Don't forget our speed scraps. Christin of Christin's Creations is hosting the May 3rd ss. She is giving away a coupon to all participants for a free kit of your choice from her store.

Are you writing this all down and putting the dates on your calender? If you haven't you might want to take a few minutes to do so. It would be a shame to miss out on any of the fun we have coming your way.

The STS Mega Collab for May is called " Seren-dipity". Collab previews are linked to the store. If you purchase $10.00 in products at STS you will recieve the "Seren-dipity" QP pk for free. What a deal!!! But you can buy it individually if you want to.
