Our August Designer Challenge

Wow, another month is over again. School has started for most or will be soon. This was my little guy's first time to venture into the world of "big" school. I think it was much harder for mommy than him. He was excited, and I was in tears! I also just recently got a new puppy, whom you will see in my layout below. She has already grown 3 inches and gained five more pounds since these photos. Why can't my babies stay little?!

This month, I asked the girls that wanted to participate in our monthly challenge to make anything they wanted using "My Friend Birdie" , since it is one of my favorites from the new lines.

Before I get to that I wanted to let you know who our winner is from last month's challenge, which was a sketch by Anna Bowkis (one of our fabulous designers). Our winner is Sugarscraps! I love all of the effort she made in her layout. She has distressing, sewing, hand-stitching, cardboard, and cutouts. Sugarscraps, please contact us to let us know which paper collection you would like to received as your prize. Here is her wonderful layout.

Ok, on to what the girls did this month using "My Friend Birdie".

Well, that's it! I hope you have found inspiration by the work of fabulous design team. Please play along for a chance to win your choice of any collection you choose by Nikki Sivils. I am going to make it a little easier for our followers to play along though. I know that not everyone has had a chance to get their hands on the newer lines. Saying that, you make anything you wish from any of Nikki's current or previous lines. Good luck! Be sure to post your work to this post for a chance to win.

Until then, happy crafting!
Susan Dupre
