Did you take the Challenge?

If you are like me you are wondering right about now where the summer went. How many of us are already pacing those backpacks and lining up those school lunches?

It’s been a super busy summer and an even busier August but somehow I managed to find the time to scrap! Yay!!!

There were a bunch of great challenges on the forum this month — did you take the challenge?

My challenge was to get you using those “Busy Backgrounds”. You know those papers you get in the pack that that have such a huge design on them that you could just slap your picture on them and be done? Yep, those!

Here was my take on the challenge:

Sheri P. took the challenge, here is her sweet layout:

Lu coordinated a swap challenge and a fun challenge it was! With Lu’s Easy Peasy Half-a-Lemon Squeezy Swap Challenge we were challenged to use two different yellow papers, one of our own and one from our swap partner, along with an embellishment sent to us by our swap partner. Using specific cutting instructions, we sent our envelopes off and the results were amazing! I know I had a great time creating my layout!

Here is Lori’s awesome layout using the paper and embellishment I sent her:

And another Easy Peasy layout by Nola:

Aren’t all these challenges wonderful? I love how much inspiration they provide. I still need to finish up my layout for Becky’s BINGO Challenge. What about you? Why don’t you swing on by the forum and check out the August Challenges? There are a few more days to get your challenge layouts done before the unofficial end of summer!

Don’t worry if you didn’t get to try your hand at a challenge this month. We have a super September planned. Stay tuned for details for the Back to School Crop coming soon. It promises to keep you filled with tons of inspiration, challenges and maybe a contest or two!!!

Looking forward to seeing you over on the forum!
