LM #363 - Chevron

Hello, scrappy friends! Good Sunday morning to you! We welcomed fall on Friday, and here in the middle of the US it still feels like summer. Record-breaking 90's and high humidity...at least it looks like the upcoming week is going to be more like fall with temps in the 70's.

Today is our last challenge for September. I hope you have liked our "All About Patterns" theme this month. In keeping with our patterns theme, this week's challenge is:

LM #363 - Chevrons - use some type of chevron paper on your layout.

Before we get to the design team's layouts, we want to say a big thank you to Sherri for being our guest designer for September. She always creates beautiful layouts, and I know I have loved seeing her beautiful work each and every week!












Our September challenges will end on Saturday, September 30th, so get those layouts linked up! Not only will we be choosing someone to be our guest designer for November, but I will also put everyone's name in a drawing for a chance to win a $15 gift card to an online store.

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

LM #359 - Polka Dots

Hello, scrappy friends! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend and that you are getting the chance to do something fun!

I want to thank all of you for taking the time to play along with our challenges in August. We had so many beautiful layouts entered into our challenges. We will be back soon with our Top 3 and our GDT pick, so stay tuned.

I also want to say a huge thank you to our GDT - Denise. She has been our guest designer for the past two months and I  know I have loved seeing her beautiful creations each week!

This week we are starting our September challenges, so that means a new theme and a new set of challenges for you! Our guest designer for September is the talented Sherri Caramico! 



My name is Sherri Caramico, I live in New Jersey. I have been married to my high school
sweetheart for 34 years, and am the mother of 2 adult sons, and 2 young Portuguese Water Dogs. All of them are my favorite subjects! We love to travel and Disney Cruising and Disney Parks are our favorite way to vacation.  I started scrapping late in my children's lives, ( about 12 years ago,) and I know 
I will never get "caught up." I'm okay with that, as I like to scrap what I "feel like" scrapping, and love lots of layers, textures and "stuff" on my pages.  Scrapbooking has helped me to meet so many people that I now call my true friends. I love going on weekend scrapbook retreats with my scrappy friends, and creating and laughing together late into the night! I enjoy sharing my work and hope I inspire others to think outside the box and encourage them just try a new technique or product. I believe there is no right or wrong, no good or bad in scrapbooking - everyone has their own personal "art" inside them." Don't be afraid to find yours!"

Our theme for September is "All About Patterns" and our first challenge is:

LM #359 - Polka Dots - use some polka dot paper on your layout

You can use a little or a lot - big dots, small dots - your choice! 

Here are the beautiful creations from the design team, starting with our guest designer:








Such beautiful work from our designers!

You will have until September 30, 2017, to get your layouts linked up for a chance to be picked as a guest designer for November.

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

Hello, hello! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are having a fantastic weekend!

Now, on to today's challenge. Our theme for August has been "All About Animals" and this week our challenge is:

LM #358 - In The Sea - Include an animal from the sea on your layout (fish, dolphin, sea horse, sea turtle, etc.) Can be in the photos, stickers/embellishments, or on the paper.
