Now you may be thinking my title to this post is a little melodramatic, but I'm telling you, it's true! Here's why:
1. I love challenges and I love sketches - finding a challenge in which I have to create a layout by using a provided sketch (which is exactly what Birds of a Feather did) is the BEST of the best as far as I'm concerned;
2. I used my BOAF August Kit , which is FULL of bright patterned papers - some of my favorites for my summer pictures. And (yes here's a shameless plug) at $35 for the kit and getting the cardstock add-on, I have created (so far) 3 layouts, an altered item, two cards and am working on my fourth layout. You KNOW how much I like to layer papers and create paper embellies on my layouts so that's a crazy good deal in my book;
3. The sketch chosen for the July challenge (yes, I'm going to make you go to the site and find it)was unique, and I could easily tell that it would render a layout that I could quickly create but that still packed a visual punch.
So, there you have it, heaven. August is now here so I am off to see what things I can find at my favorite haunts to challenge myself with this month! If you know of anything fun and exciting - feel free to pass your info my way!
