Project 12 August in September






ETA:  Oh my goooooodnesssss!!!!  I was out of town and thought I had this scheduled to post on the 1st!  Gal dang!  I just realized it's still in Draft!  I was so on top of it too!  ACK!  Anyway.....


Hello Friends!

Another month has just FLOWN by, and now the fun begins.... documenting it all on a layout!  I'm glad that July's sketch was full of photos.  My month was certainly full of adventures, and I'm glad to have a place to put some of them.  Some of the photos on this layout may not have made it on to a traditional layout if it wasn't for this monthly sketch.

As a reminder, this is what the July sketch looked like:



And this is what I came up with this month:





I used the September kit from Studio Calico for this layout, Glee Club.  I misted the edges of my layout with Lemonade mist.  It looks a wee bit orange, but I love the overall effect.  Very cost effective to mist the edges rather than use paper too, right?   

The tags are from my stash.  Staples.  I think they need to be a constant for the shop.  Wouldn't you agree?

This sketch was fun because I could use just bits and pieces of scraps from my kit to fill the spaces and add more color.  I also loved the fun grid.

Here are some things I particularly liked about the projects linked to my blog this month.

LOVED the die cut shape that spanned the layout.  Such a great interpretation of the sketch. 
diggin the banner on pop dots. 
Very cool background on this one. 

Looking ahead, I'm itching to try out the next sketch for my August photos.  Oh my.  I've been wanting to try this design for a while:






As always, it's really easy to play along and I hope you will.  Use the sketch, or don't.  Use 100 photos or none. Just recap your month on a layout, and link it to the P12 post by the 28th of the month to enter for a prize.  Increase your chances by linking to the Scrapbook and Cards blog too.  More info on the Project 12 page up top.

I'll see you back here on the first.  And hopefully, I'll be able to leave comments along the way before then.  I've been having a problem with blogger lately (there's a chance I'm going to make a switch quite soon) so I can't always sign in to post.  Sometimes I post anonymously and sometimes I can't even do that. 

Have a great month!  It's school time and I have a second grader and a Kindergardner!  Things are a'changin' in the Fiero house.  :)

    I always get confused - and noticed that I seem to have forgotten to post my July LO to your blog - Doh! I was having problems pulling up your blog but have now switched to Google Chrome (no more IE!!) and everything is fine now.
    Anyway, looking forward to September!
