Hello Friends! Another month has just FLOWN by, and now the fun begins.... documenting it all on a layout! I'm glad that July's sketch was full of photos. My month was certainly full of adventures, and I'm glad to have a place to put some of them. Some of the photos on this layout may not have made it on to a traditional layout if it wasn't for this monthly sketch.
As a reminder, this is what the July sketch looked like:
And this is what I came up with this month:
I used the September kit from Studio Calico for this layout, Glee Club. I misted the edges of my layout with lemonade mist. It looks a wee bit orange, but I love the overall effect. Very cost effective to mist the edges rather than use paper too, right? I feel like this is a pattern that’s going to repeat itself again in the future.
This sketch was fun because I could use just bits and pieces of scraps from my kit to fill the spaces and add more color. I also loved the fun grid.
Here are some things I particularly liked about the projects linked to July's challenge...
LOVED the die cut shape that spanned this layout. Such a great interpretation of the sketch by our friend on the Paislee Petals blog.
Diggin the banner on pop dots here! Nicely done!
And last but certainly not least, this very cool background on Agata's layout!
If you played along this month and got your layout submitted in time, you were playing for a very fun prize. The Picture Keeper!
The winner of this fun prize from the SCT blog is: Natalie (QSOgirl). And the winner from my blog is: Cynthia B.
Congratulations ladies! Send us your mailing information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put in your reference line "Picture Keeper winner".
Looking ahead, I'm itching to try out the next sketch for my August photos. Oh my. I've been wanting to try this design for a while since the sketch was revealed on the SCT blog here:
I love the use of white space and the row of photos. I can’t wait to play with this one!! Remember to send us your August layouts for the facebook album or link it to THIS post by September 28th!
Looking to September's sketch, check out what Becky came up with for those back to school photos:
Another fabulous sketch! Both of these are right up my alley. What a great way to welcome in the fall months! If you play with the September sketch there’s a great prize too. It’s the Mega Runner from Xyron. LOVE this brand new adhesive! Easy, lightweight, refillable and 100' of adhesive! What could be better!
My least favorite scrapbook supply to purchase is adhesive, and I’m always running out. It gets to be an afterthought at my house until it’s time to stick stuff down. There’s nothing like an 11pm adhesive run to the store! Ha! Good thing my local Walmart is open 24 hours for emergencies such as these. (okay, I’ve never gone that late, but wouldn’t it be funny!? Imagine what the cashier would be thinking as they rang up adhesive runners and bags of m&m’s).
As always, we are glad to have you and so happy to have such support with this challenge. I think it makes scrapbooking so much easier. I hope you think so too. If you are just joining us all previous months sketches can be seen here. I’ll see you back here on October 1st!
