Challenge #19

One of my favorite parts of Summer is watching old monster/ sci-fi movies at an outdoor cinema, so for today's challenge, our DT used this old movie poster as an ad-inspiration of sorts for their layouts!
And here's some fabulous layouts from the DT:



Totally loving what you ladies did with this challenge!
Also, I am thinking of creating a Facebook page for this blog as well, so everyone can share their layouts there. Would that be something we would use? Let me know in the comments what you think and don't forget to link to your layouts!

Challenge #18 - image problem fixed! :)

Sorry this challenge is up a day late- I totally lost track of time yesterday getting ready for vacation :)
This week's challenge is an ad challenge of sorts. What says summer more than a great concert? Your challenge is to create a layout using this vintage concert poster as inspiration:

Our Design Team came up with some pretty awesome interpretations! Thanks for letting me know that my experiment didn't work- everything's fixed now :)



As I mentioned above, I am going on vacation. I will be gone for 2 weeks, so our challenges will pick up again on July 27th. In the meantime, please visit the DTs blogs for some awesome inspiration! You may even find a challenge or two! And please be sure to post links to your layouts in the comments so I can see all our lovely layouts when I get back!

Challenge #17

Today's challenge is a weather-related one... since summer is now in full bloom everywhere, our challenge is a Song Title challenge: Use your favorite summer song title and/or lyrics as the theme of your layout.
Here's our DT's Scrumptious Summery layouts:
As soon as I saw the challenge, I knew which song I would use. In fact, it
was running through my head for about two weeks. Thanks for the
encouragement to do something so fun!

I used Sheryl Crow’s Soak Up the Sun for my title.  The lyrics really didn’t pertain to my pictures, but I love the title!  Plus I love the way the sun is shining on my daughter’s face, and that is the first summer song that popped into my head.


Had a tough time with this one...finding a song title that would go with photos I had.  I finally gave up and did some searches and came up with "A Lovely Cruise" by Jimmy Buffet. 
The title worked...the lyrics don't...
The photos are from a Navy cruise I took in 2009 in Virginia with my younger son.
Hope you all have fun with this challenge, too :) Remember, if you play along at home to link to your layout in the comment!

Challenge #16

Well, seems like Blogger had an issue when I thought I posted this on Wednesday night, so I guess it just turns into a bonus challenge for this week? This challenge is a Use Your Stuff challenge. Today's challenge is to use stickers as your background and everything but alphas is fine (including the negatives from your alphas). Our design team has some AWESOME layouts for us, so I'm sad you didn't get to see them earlier. Anyhow, here they are:



Awesome job, girls! Remember, if you are playing along at home, don't forget to link back in the comments so we can see your work, too!
Hope everyone is having a safe & sane 4th of July Stateside! See you on Wednesday!
