Rabbit, rabbit, y’all, and Happy Canada Day to our friends up North! It should be a weekend full of fireworks, too, as Americans celebrate Independence Day on Saturday. We wish you and your family well, wherever you are and whatever memories you are making.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost time for our next virtual crop! Join us at the end of this month for our Fast2Finished crop, July 24-26. Crops are a great time to be a p2P member and to get lots of work done! New to the idea of virtual crops? Your questions answered HERE.
Speaking of getting work done – oh my goodness! The people who have joined our “Plan2Scrap” Club are on fire, setting goals and working on ways to reach them. Lots of introductions are being made and people are finding others who live near them who may want to gather in person. How fun is that? Read more about the Plan2Scrap Club in our latest e-newsletter and join us HERE. Didn’t get a newsletter? Click HERE to make sure you are on our mailing list.
If the idea of meeting other p2P peeps and Pixies appeals to you, then you will want to attend Forever LIVE in Atlanta, GA, at the end of September. There will be seven Pixies in attendance and hundreds of other people who love their photos as much as you do. It is going to be the Picture Party of the Year! Read more about it in our latest PAGES magazine or click HERE to reserve your spot. Oh, and be sure to ‘like’ the Forever LIVE Facebook page and keep in touch with what’s happening. Also, if you or someone you know might be interested in purchasing a vendor spot for this event, please direct them to info@pixels2Pages.net. All sorts of sponsorship packages are available, and national Save Your Photos Day will be happening concurrent with (and at) Forever LIVE. Vendors do not have to be scrapbook or photo related.
In addition to reading about Forever LIVE in Pages, you’ll get lots of great ideas for your pages by looking at those others have done! The theme of this issue is Celebration, as we take a look back at the last five years of pixels2Pages. We’ve got great tips and loads of lovely pages from our May virtual crop, and our featured fan is June Gauntley. Pages is a great way for you to share pixels2Pages and digital scrapbooking with friends, too!
One last reminder and one more Facebook page to like – have you checked out the Panstoria Designer Gallery? It’s a great way for you to see pages made using new kits in the Panstoria store and to see the kits themselves. Of course, we still hope you’ll click through our affiliate link before you go shopping!
Now let’s see what was posted on p2P in June – the headings are links to the content described, and you’ll see images (which are not links) of last month’s posts in the galleries that follow each heading:

If you like that kit, you will want to have a look at some of Sheri’s other kits in the Panstoria store. As always, we appreciate when you click through our affiliate link before purchasing.
