Hello, everyone! Happy Monday to you! I do hope your week is off to a good start. Today we are kicking off the August edition of TN Time With Lisa & Lori.
Here's a little refresher on how this challenge works: this is a monthly challenge that starts on the 10th of each month and ends on the 9th of the following month at midnight CST. If you complete my random challenge for the month - link your TN, bullet journal, or planner spread below. If you combine my challenge with Lisa's sketch challenge - link up here and on Lisa's blog - My Creative Endeavors - and you will have two chances to win a prize. You can find the full list of rules here.
Here is my challenge for August:
(August 10th - September 9th)
Just use at least 3 different patterned papers on your spread!
Here is the fun sketch that Lisa has created for us:
And here is my spread - using both challenges:
I used my August kit that I created for The Great Stash Bash. So far I have made one card and now two traveler's notebook layouts using my kit this month. Hopefully, I will be able to get a couple more projects done with this kit before the end of the month!
To meet my challenge of using at least 3 patterned papers - I have the background paper, a navy paper, the hearts paper, and the yellow dot paper. The "so very lovely" paper behind the photo and the quote square that I used were both from the cut apart cards.
This photo of Ada is one of my favorites that Abby sent me when they went to the little nature park not far from their house at the beginning of May. Ada just looks so cute in it! She definitely makes us all happy when skies are grey!
This spread is definitely on the busy side for me! I think that is why I love working in my TN's. I feel a little freer with what I do in them - and if I want to mix papers I wouldn't normally mix on a full 12x12 - then so be it!
Here are a few close-ups of my layout:
I had this little sun die-cut still on my desk that I had cut out for another layout and then didn't use. I thought it was perfect to go with my "My Sunshine" subtitle that I added along the side of the photo.
I felt like the quote card got lost on amongst the other papers so I just outlined it to help it stand out.
Thanks so much to Anna and Sandi for playing along with us last month! Remember - Lisa and I have decided that we are going to be giving away a prize after 3 months so all of our June and July entries will be added to our August entries and a winner will be announced on September 10th.
Be sure to check out Lisa's blog to see her beautiful spread for August. I hope that you are able to play along with us this month, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
