HIMCR #52 - Freestyle

Happy Saturday from my hotel room!! 
We are officially moved out.  We left Arizona with half our stuff (the military moved the other half) Tuesday morning, well we meant to leave out tuesday morning but we had some set backs and ended up leaving Tuesday late afternoon.  So what else is new.  Now we have the half the military moved in the house mostly set up and the half we moved stuffed into our garage.  We had to get our truck back so that was the quickest and easiest thing to do.  Hence why I'm in a hotel room.  It's the quietest moment I've had in weeks!!!!!

I'm so sorry about last Saturday's challenge.  I thought I had everything prepared well in advance, even all my challenge examples pictured, but alas I had issues with my main computer and didn't plan for my laptop to be used for watching netflix (pretty much my kids only entertainment) for a couple of days.  I'm still planning on posting last week's challenge with even an additional giveaway!    Soooo, if you've been following the design team and have done the challenge you will still get a chance to enter it into the monthly giveaway plus the special giveaway as well! 

The challenge this week, the 5th week of the month, is Freestyle:  ANYTHING Goes! 
You have until Friday, July 6th to link up your creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR52.
