Hello and happy August! I am fresh off the plane from a lovely little vacation in Oak Creek, Wisconsin! It was relaxing, but busy and I’m pooped! Pausing for a serious note, I trust you have all heard of the Sikh temple shooting that happened in that same city just yesterday; my thoughts go out to everyone affected in that terrible, sad situation. <3
Now, let’s talk scrapping. How did it get to be August so quickly?! I can’t believe the year is winding to a close. But with a new month comes a new batch of our world-famous (at least that’s what I tell myself) monthly challenges! This week I am spotlighting a challenge with the **freebie**: the August 2012 Mini Kit Challenge hosted by Lily of Pixelily Designs! You’ll absolutely adore the gorgeous little mini she’s whipped up for us this month; check it out!
So flipping cute, Lily! I love the purple and green together! I’m sure we’ve ALL got a summer photo or two that needs scrapping; here’s your chance! The layouts are already coming in from our talented forum ladies; if you want a little inspiration for this mini, look no further! (Well…maybe a little further) :)
Outstanding job so far, gals! I didn’t realize how versatile this kit is until I saw how all the cool different effects these ladies were able to create for their layouts! Love it! Now…it’s your turn to show off your awesome scrappin’ skills! All you have to do is jump over to the August 2012 Mini Kit Challenge thread, pick up the mini and get to scrappin’!
Make sure you stop by the August Challenge Points Tracking thread and claim your spot so you can start tallying up all your points towards some amazing rewards! If you’re a newcomer (well, hi there!) and you’re wondering what fabulous prizes you can win for participating in the GingerScraps monthly challenges, check out the rewards system thread and get all the 411. Of course, if you have any questions about the rewards, this challenge or any of the other monthly challenges, you should most definitely direct them to the Cookie Jar where some smart little cookie will get you an answer just as soon as possible! ALSO, if you want to see your layout highlighted here, make sure you participate and post your creations in the correct challenge thread; also good so we can all ooh and ahh over your fabulousness!
That’s it for me today, ladies. Thanks for stopping by and I hope y’all have a rad week!
