Today is the 23rd of the month!  You know what that means??  It's time for Squeeze-A-Palooza!  In case you're new to our blog, let us explain...

Squeeze-A-Palooza is a monthly challenge played here on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog.  We offer lots of inspiration, as well as prizes to TWO* lucky participants!  Sound good?

We LOVE using inspiration pictures with our challenge, so here's a little eye candy to get those creative juices flowing!

Fresh Squeezed Stamps has released more than TWO DOZEN sets now, so there are lots of possibilities for creating some fresh, creative summer themed cards and projects.  Use your imagination and let your creativity lead the way!

Here Val used String Me Along, A Punny Valentine and Mother Knows Best to create a back porch feel on this adorable card.

Okay, here's what you need to know:
  • Create a NEW project (card, layout, altered item, banner, tag, etc.) using this month's theme:  SUMMER
  • You must use at least one Fresh Squeezed Stamps image.  Projects using zero FSS images will be deleted.
  • Each participant may submit up to two (2) entries per challenge.     
  • Submit a DIRECT LINK to your blog post.  Projects not linked properly will be deleted.
  • You must mention this challenge and link to it in your blog post.  Feel free to grab the Squeeze-A-Palooza banner to use on your blog too!

There will be two* winners of Squeeze-A-Palooza every month!
  • Readers' Choice winner - The project with the most "LIKES" at the end of the challenge will win one (1) stamp set of their choice.
  • Random winner - One random challenge player will win one (1) stamp set of their choice.
  • *EXTRA BONUS PRIZE - A second random challenge player will win one (1) stamp set of their choice...when we get 15 or more challenge participants, so invite your friends and bloggy pals to join in!

After you've created your new Squeeze-A-Palooza project, simply enter your information into the Linky Tool below to be entered to win!  Remember that we're looking for TWO* winners - one random participant and the person with the most "LIKES" on their project. Be sure to tell all your friends to play along and vote, too!!
