Before I go, I would like to share a great big important project that collaberated by a LOT of talented designers for a much needed cause!All Creatures Great and Small
All Creatures Great and Small is a charity collaboration to benefit the National Wildlife Federation and is exclusively available for sale at Funky Playground Designs through July 18th.

According to the National Wildlife Federation:

Millions of gallons of oil have oozed into the water since the April 20th rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Some estimates calculate the oil flow to be over 70,000 barrels of oil a day—making the BP spill already eight times larger than Exxon Valdez!

And we still don't know when it will stop.

The wildlife casualties are adding up. Oil has officially hit land, and numerous sea turtles, dolphins and migratory birds have all been reported dead or dying on gulf beaches. Sadly, this is just the beginning of the uphill battle wildlife in the region now face.

Please donate today to help protect the over 400 species of treasured wildlife that stand to lose so much from this devastating tragedy. Your support will go right to work protecting wildlife and wild places impacted by the BP oil spill disaster.

The profits from the sale of this collaboration will go directly to the National Wildlife Federation and the receipt will be posted on the Funky Playground blog after the donation has been made.

Contributing Designers are: 4 Shades of Blue, Caged Bird Designs, Daybreak Scraps, Ellie Lash, Edeline Marta Designs, EH Studios, Girl Boy Girl Designs by Jen Balding, Jaclyn Bernardo, Jennilyn Designs, Kiss This Designs, Mad Genius Designs, Michelle Batton, Scrappin' Daisies Designs, Secret Garden, Shanmomto4 Designs and Siamese Studio.

Please click on the link to view additional images to see previews of each designer's contribution as well as sample layouts made by the Funky Playground Designs' Creative Team.

In addition to the contributing designers, we'd like to extend our gratitude to Songbird Avenue and DigiShopTalk for providing advertising.

Good Morning Sunshine will only be available as a $3.00 Grab Bag from June 7 through June 20!

I will be sending my next newsletter out July 1st so I hope you'll be looking forward to that :)
