August Challenge

Nothing like the last minute to enter right??!! lol

Guest Design Team Member Stacy submitted this layout for the August Challenge.  She said, "I really had fun making this layout of my sweet daughter. This picture was from a recent trip we took in our RV. She was just happy and looking at me over her shoulder and I think it is super sweet, and shows what a beauty she will be when she grows up.

I used some pp from My Minds Eye - Spectrum Cools. I also used some more pp from MME - Deena's Penny Lane.

My mom crocheted the flowers. I made the flower I put under one of her crocheted flowers out of pp that I punched out with a scallop punch. I then cut along every two scallops and crunched it up a bit and layered them with the crocheted flower on top. I added some buttons from my stash.

I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays recent sketch challenge. Isn't it a great sketch??!!

I added a little purple bling and a couple of ornamental paper clips with charms on them.

I also cut out the title using my Cricut. The cartridge I used was the Cutting Up Cartridge.

This was a fun challenge to do and I have loved seeing everyone else's takes. Can't wait until next months challenge is posted!! Stacy H-W
