Scrapbook Circle August Kit

Happy Thursday, all!  Thank you, everyone, for all your sweet comments and congratulations on my Etsy shop's 3000th sale.  I really appreciate you for spreading the word, visiting my blog and facebook page, and being such sweet customers :).  I'm feeling pretty blessed these days.

I'm counting those blessings, but also feeling a bit stressed.  So, I've decided that I will not be able to play along with all my favorite challenge blogs for a bit.  I'm not very creative with a long list staring me in the face, so I thought it would be best if I focused my energies on design team assignments for now.  Speaking of which, have you seen the gallery at Scrapbook Circle for the August kit?  I am so lucky to be on such an amazing DT - these girls are talented and inspirational!

The kit just bursts sunshine from every seam!  I created four layouts and even made myself a piece of jewelry :).  The layout I'd like to share with you today is "And Off He Goes".

Although the kit comes with adorable buttons, I snagged a few more from my stash.  I painted the alphas in the kit green to match my layout and added October Afternoon mini alphas to my title.  The Pink Paislee tape in the kit made me think of masking tape, so I layered both to make a frame around my photo.  Yep, that's Jaxon, on the run.  He doesn't really walk anywhere nowadays, just runs with this sumo wrestler kind of stance. 

If you haven't yet, take a look at the idea gallery for the kit.  And if you can get your hands on one before it sells out, I would jump at the chance!  Scrapping your summer couldn't be easier with such a great collection of goodies.

Have a great day! Tessa
