Project 12 August in September

FINALLY.  It is finally September and that means only a few short days before a routine is back on the calendar and I can settle down.  I have decided that the chaos of the summertime is almost too much!  I need order!

With this new month comes a new challenge for Project 12.  But first, as always, a shoutout to a couple of layouts that caught my eye this month:

I had to include this one from Jen.  Had too!  The design is wonderful.  I love the clustered butterflies with the buttons, and I really like that blue cardstock with the Cosmo. 


Another thing I loved was the collage.  On Jen's blog she said she usually prints her photos at places like Costco, so to get around the odd sizes in the sketch photos, she created a collage in Picasa.  She did and she did a great job too!  I like the use of black and white photos as well.

As always, thank you Jen!


I liked this one from Cynthia for a few reasons.  One:  she used her stash.  LOVE that.  I have been cleaning out my scrapbook room and it's just a sad shame to get rid of your stash sometimes, so I'm glad to see someone using theres, lol.  She used two different patterned papers, one family themed, one cousin themed, and I like the way she trimmed her strips.  Both papers represent what her family experienced in July, which is why she also changed her title to something besides "July" as a title, but still representative of July in the US.  Very clever!

Thanks again for playing along!  I don't know about you, but I was running around all over the place this month so am lucky to have even completed a layout.  I'm glad I've kept it a priority.  So much has happened I might forget all the details!

Let's get to that August sketch:


Fun!

Now.  Be sure to post on this thread by the 20th (here at SCT) if you want a chance at the prize this month. 

What's the prize, you say? 


Sweet Becky Fleck, the go to gal for all of my sketches this year, has offered her yet to be release Pagemaps 2!  What a great resource for your crafting arsenal!  It'll even be signed.  woooot! 

So have fun this month, don't worry too much about it, don't follow the sketch if it doesn't work for you, but highlight your month, and link it here so I can take a peek inside your house.  :)

Have a great September!  Davinie
