hey guys :o) SP here today…for the AUGUST project SCRAP 2012 check-in! For most of us, August is a transition month – whether you are transitioning from summer break to the start of school…or one season to another – it’s just one of those BUSY months! Because, it seems like no matter what the transition is…it ALWAYS involves a lot of extra time and work, lol! Hmmmm, or perhaps it’s just me? Goodness I hope not! Like many of you…our August was spent enjoying the last bit of ‘free time’ before school started…ya know – trying to squeeze out every possible bit of fun, lol! My boys did some traveling while I stayed home and worked (great mommy time…though time away from my boys is never easy for me…no matter how old they get, lol)…and then, of course – we had lots of wonderful family time together as well! And, since I’m still doing lots and lots of work (more on that soon, smiles)…I’ll stop rambling and get to the point of the post here, lol!
So, for our check-in today, we’ll be peeking at the AUGUST templates and some of the amazing layouts from the project SCRAP 2012 inspiration gallery! If you missed the August templates – no worries, you can still download them HERE! We’ll start with my pages…which are kinda ‘all-over-the-place’ lol! Such a mish-mash of photos and colors…but I think I am finally happy with the end result (though it seemed a long road getting to that point, he he)! It’s funny…I am DEATHLY afraid of frogs…I mean like you wouldn’t believe…so taking the pic of the frog was so hard for me (thank Goodness for zoom lenses)…but nowhere near as difficult as having it in front of me in photoshop as I worked on these layouts for so long, LOLOL! Seriously…
Now, how about Kylie’s HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY pages? I swear, the girls look soooooo grown-up here…and so gorgeous! Looks like some fun auntie/niece time…and adorable layouts to boot :o)
Loving Kim’s layouts (nothing new there, lol)! I enjoyed reading her description about the color palette as I felt the same way with mine this month…and as per usual – we seemed to be on the same ‘page’ with some of our paper/embellishment choices, lol! So fun :o)
Sweet Amber rocked the August templates, too! Everything is perfect here…but especially the choice of the golden damask paper – it just highlights all of the photos beautifully! Always look forward to Amber’s gallery!
Finally, we have Rosy’s layouts…totally enjoying the dark blue/yellow color palette, and the subtle changes and additions she made (they really work so well!)
So, I think that will do it for inspiration today! Of course, there are MORE layouts to enjoy in the project SCRAP 2012 gallery – so be sure to take a peek…I have no doubt that you will find yourself INSPIRED :o)
Before I go…here is a quick little peek at September’s templates – so pretty! Kylie will be sharing them with you next Thursday :o)
I hope you all have a wonderful day/night…and that you are having a great time scrapping 2012 with us! DON‘T FORGET that this SATURDAY we are having another FAST & FABULOUS speed scrap here at the BLOG :o) We TRULY hope you’ll join us (everyone is invited!) – it’s going to be SO MUCH FUN! See ya there…until then - XOXO — SP :o)
