And the fabulous inspiration we are sharing with you today was
inspired by the challenge, and created by our

Carolyn shared this with us about her layout:
"I began this layout with the Fancy Pants Me-ology kit as it has mini folders that I had no idea how to use. From there I chose two pictures that would match. I used Simple Stories frames, twine around the quote at the bottom and a Uniball pen for the journaling. I really thought a lot about the background as I have some awesome Teresa Collins stencils but after making my cluster, I decided to sew the background like the picture. I'm so glad I did because I never would've come up with this idea without the sketch. I found some tags I liked in the kit so I had to move the title for balance. It is from Creative Embellishments with some black embossing. Thank-you - I've enjoyed being a guest designer this month!

Now it's your turn!
Make sure you upload your layout on the side bar before July 29th! 

Have a great weekend!
