Happy August!

Today I have two challenges to share with you.  First, The Studio has a new Sunday challenge up: Masking! Find something creative from around your home to use as a mask for misting, inking or painting on your layout. 

I have a self-adhesive set of circle masks by Heidi Swapp that I love, but for this challenge I looked for a homemade circle substitute.  What did I find?  A CD!  Just cover the hole with a bit of tape and you're set to go.  The CD weighs enough that the spray won't blow it off the page, and it's easy to clean.

Also, Scrap That Poetry has a new challenge poem up today (and a scavenger hunt!).  I LOVE Edgar Allen Poe - he speaks to my dark side :).  So when I saw that "Annabelle Lee" was the poem for today, I was excited.  However, I need all the sunshine and happiness I can get right now, so I decided to focus on the line "And we loved with a love that was more than love" for a happy take on Poe. 

My dear friend, Anna, has just opened an adorable little store!  She has created unique, beautiful kits full of bits and pieces of scrappy goodness.  Please visit her - she's doing a giveaway :).

My 3000 sales special continues through August 2nd!  All completed purchases will be entered into a drawing to win a $30.00 Precocious Paper gift certificate!  I'm working hard on getting my new designs ready for listing, but if I don't get them up before August 2nd, no worries - I've got another promotion up my sleeve.

Have a wonderful day! Tessa
