Treasured Scrapbooking for August

Treasured Scrapbooking
has an out of the box, wild and crazy kit for the month of August. This kit features some Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket, Prima, Hambly and Jenni Bowlin just to name a few. I had a great time working with it as it was.......ANYTHING GOES!! Pretty much everything went together in a funky kind of way and I ended up with a bunch of fun and crazy layouts. Also Treasured Scrapbooking is sponsering a week of challenges over at Willow Traders so alot of the design team members made samples for the challenges with the August kit, so dont forget to check out Willow Traders for the August THAW (Three layouts a Week)challenge week starting August 8.

So let me share the layouts I did and a few of the challenges :)

This is the Life - THAW challenge at Willow Traders
Use the colors of your garden.....and add a little brown to represent earth. My garden is a flower garden so I used bright colors, green for foliage and my brown is the burlap.


Brat Kid -THAW Willow Traders Challenge - Use school related materials for a non school layout. The August kit for Treasured Scrapbooking is perfect for this challenge, lots of lined papers and school related images. I went with my bratty picture of Trevor from his 4th birthday :)

My Altered item for the month
We got a cute little paper mache type of birdhouse, a great canvas for whatever your creative mind can think up! I painted it, crackled it with Helmar Crackle Medium, inked it, added some paper punches and epoxy's that I created with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio (Heart 14).

Yep, thats the backside of a Waterfall - Willow Traders THAW challenge - Sketch
Erin created a sketch for the challenge and stated that the title needed to be long, worked out perfect for the series of photos I used :) I added some of the little heart epoxy's that I created with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio (heart 14). I love how they make such a cute touch to any layout!

The Zoo
This is a challenge over at Treasured Scrapbooking for the month of August - to use crayons on your layout:

Lots of Cuddles

I had fun sharing my creations with you and hope that you enjoyed spending some time with me :)
