'One of his'

Tess here today with my take on Wendys August challenge. I have been really struggling with the mojo at the moment and this page felt really good to get done.
One of his

And here is the original page
There is still a bit of time this month to get your layout submitted for a chance to be a guest DT member for September.

Hello Awesome!!

Kimmy here with my lift of Wendy's page! Such a fun design to scrap lift!

Another page from my summer vacation to the UK.
Seeing Les Mis from the 4th row in London, was AWESOME!
 Love the gold & pink color combo, not one I normally use.

Here's Wendy's original page. I loved that she had the title sideways and rounded corners. 
I also stole the cluster between the photos, turning mine into a subtitle. I wanted to add a journaling bit too, but I just couldn't make it fit with my photos. 

Now it's your turn! Create your own layout inspired by our pages! 
Be sure to share it here for your change to win a guest design spot!

August XOXO Lift - Bucket Boy!

I loved the sketch Wendy used for our August Lift! I had three pictures waiting to be scrapped of my busy little man! I ended up going with the two photos just like the sketch, since one was a little blurry! Had some fun papers added to the photos that reminded me of a old time gas attendant!

I titled the page "Bucket Boy" since at the time that was a daily event. My son would explore behind our house see what he can collect to pretend he is on some type of job using his new finds. My Brother-in-Law drives big rigs and there is a number tractor trailers, parts, supplies and etc. behind his house which is next door to us.

Here is Wendy's page for this month's challenge:

There is still half the month to go to get your challenge done and linked up for your chance to be a Guest DT!

Hello August....... Where did you come from?!

Welcome to August at XOXO Scrapbooking. Are we the only ones left wondering where August came from? July went way too fast!

 We have another wonderful layout to scraplift this month thanks to our gorgeous guest DT member Wendy.
I love how the more you look at this page, the more you see. Remember to use it like a sketch or just be inspired by individual elements of the page.

I am working on my Christmas pictures from 2011. I decided to pick two of the best pictures from Christmas morning to start my page. When I saw this paper from Bo Bunny, I thought it was perfect and I wanted to highlight the words Christmas Traditions in a subtle way. From that everything else fell into place. The little Santa is ceramic and came on a gift that I received. I have been saving it (too cute to throw away) and this was a perfect home for him.

Don't forget to get your take on the challenge uploaded to the link tool in the sidebar by the end of the month, and you could be joining us as a Guest DT, just like Wendy.

Thanks for your time with us Wendy. It has been great getting to know you and we would love to see you still playing along with us at XOXO. We hope you have enjoyed your time with us too.
