Challenge Spotlight – Word Art Challenge

Happy Tuesday, y’all! Can you believe it’s already the third week of August?! It’s insanity! School is about to start (woohoo!), summer is fading away (hopefully sooner than later on that one), the new fall lines are out (sorry, I work in fashion)… August is about to be over and here we come, fall! But before I keep rambling and the month ends while you’re reading this, let’s get to the challenge spotlight for this week, shall we? πŸ™‚

This week I am spotlighting the word art challenge hosted by the ever-lovely Kathy of Kathy Winters Designs! Speaking of August, her word art freebie focuses on just that–the month of August! It’s really pretty and great for any layout…enough talk, let’s see it!

I know, right? It’s flipping awesome! I love the mix of fonts here and the WA just lends itself to being the focal point of all kinds of fabulous layouts. Need some examples of it in action? Thought you’d never ask!

WOW–absolutely love these, ladies! I love Missi’s fun yearbook feel, Ricki’s bright and fruity pageΒ and Mary Lynne’s use of the WA as a paragraph title. Seriously fabulous–y’all rock! πŸ˜€ If you want to see your layout here, make sure you’re challenge’ing it up and maybe you’ll be highlighted here next week!

If you haven’t snagged this freebie and started your layout yet…what are you waiting for?! πŸ™‚ Make sure you’re keeping track of all your completed challenge layouts in theΒ August Challenge Points Tracking thread. You can also read up on the rewards system if this is your first month joining in on the challenge fun. And as always, any questions about this or any of the monthly challenges should be directed to the Cookie Jar where a superawesome GS gal will get back to you faster than you can blink! Well…maybe not that fast, but pretty quickly. πŸ˜‰

The month is more than halfway over, so make sure you get plenty of challenges done in time to get some awesome prizes! That’s it for today–y’all have a great week and I’ll see you back here next week for the last spotlight of the month!–EEP! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
