Friday Features On Saturday!

Hello, hello! Happy Saturday to you! It has been a couple of busy weeks for me with getting my kids ready to go back to school. My youngest son started back on Thursday and we moved my oldest son back to college yesterday, so that is the reason I am a day late in getting the features post up!

Here are the features - in no particular order:

Katie
Katie is only nine and this is her first layout! I think she is a natural scrapbooker!



I think all of these layouts are just beautiful!

We will be back tomorrow with our last challenge for August so be sure to stop back by!

Thank you to everyone for playing along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #356 - In The House

Hello, scrappy friends! We hope that you are having a great weekend!

We are back with our second challenge of the month. This month our theme is "All About Animals" and this week, Lauren, is challenging us to scrap about the animals in our house.

LM #356 - In The House - Include a house pet/animal on your layout (dogs, cats, rabbit, hamster, snake, turtle, etc.) This can be in the photos, stickers/embellishments, or in the paper.

Here is a look at what the design team created starting with our guest designer for August, Denise:

We have no animals, so I have used a bunny and a cat as decoration.


This is our Buddy, Buddy gives me all kinds of reasons to scrap about him.

Lauren
Rocky & Daphne love to go to the beach

Gizmo always poses for photos!


Our little dog, Wilfred, didn't know what to think of our granddaughter the first time that he saw her!


We can't wait to see what you create! No worries if you don't have a pet - just do like Denise and use some of those cute animal embellishments or papers on your layout! 


Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #355 - On The Farm

Hello, scrappy friends! Happy Sunday to you! We have gotten a break from the extreme heat this weekend and are enjoying low 80's, low humidity, and lots of sunshine! Perfect weather I would say!

Since it is (almost) a new month we have a new theme and a new set of challenges starting today. DT Lauren is providing our challenges this month and they are really going to be fun!

Our theme for August is - All About Animals - and our first challenge to you is:

LM #355 - On The Farm - include a farm animal (cow, horse, pig, chicken, sheep, etc.) on your layout. This can be in the photos, patterned paper,  or the stickers/embellishments.

We enjoyed having Denise as our GDT last month and so we asked if she would be interested in hanging around for this month, too. Thankfully she said yes, so you will be seeing more of Denise's beautiful this month!
Here are the beautiful layouts from the design team, starting with GDT Denise:

LM #354 - Go On A Scrappy Adventure

Hello, scrappy friends! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend and are able to stay cool if you are experiencing the heat like we are! Yesterday we hit 100* - the first time for us this summer. I'm ready for a little bit of a cool down!

We have our fourth and final challenge of July for you today. Our theme for this month has been - Summer Adventures - and this week our challenge is:

LM #354 - Go On A Scrappy Adventure - document a layout in a size that you don't normally scrap.


Show us your mini albums, travelers notebook, custom pocket page, etc. Do you normally scrap 12x12? Then why not try an 8x8 or an 8.5 x11? Give that new size a try and you just might decide that you like it!


First of all, we would like to thank Denise for being our Guest Designer in July! We have really enjoyed her beautiful layouts this month! She has also agreed to be our Guest Designer for August so you will be seeing more of her beautiful work next month, as well!

Here is what the design team has come up with for this challenge, starting with GDT - Denise.

Denise scrapped an 8x8 layout

I created a mini album.

I created this 6x8 pocket page with 2x2 squares. I have not done many of these, but I'm really loving it! I am even considering a new 100 day project possibly incorporating this size. 2x2 pockets are wonderful for sparkly shakers!

I have created a 6x8 layout for my granddaughter's 6x8 album.

Beautiful projects once again from our talented design team! Now it's your turn - be sure to link up by July 28!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
