Sunday At The Studio

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend!
It's the start of a new month at The Studio (with I great new prize!) and Sunday means a fresh challenge. This week we were challenged to make a 'back to school' page ...
I used a Studio Calico kit for this page (Paper Moon) and I was inspired to use the strips of pattern in the background from several pages I saw in the Studio Calico gallery, including this one. My journaling is inside the Smash envelope. Here's the close up:
materials: patterned paper: Sassafras Lass, Crate, October Afternoon, Studio Calico; stickers, button: Crate; letters: October Afternoon; envelope: K & Co.; wood veneer, spray ink, stamp: Studio Calico; string: WeRMemory Keepers

The prize this month at The Studio Challenges is a $20 gift certificate for Ella Publishing. Lot's of awesome eBooks to be had so why not play along? Have you stopped by Ella Publishing lately?

It's almost time for Boot Camp. I'm signed up and ready to go. You can check out the details of this 6 day series of 18 inspiring videos by 4 expert instructors right here. It starts on September 19 and runs through the 24th.


Feeling a little stressed about the upcoming week. School starts for us on Tuesday and I haven't quite worked out the logistics yet. I'm sure it will all work itself out. Busy crafty month ahead, too...there will be lots to share in the weeks to come.
Thanks for stopping by - hope you'll play along at The Studio Challenges!

What a cool layout, Val! Love the starburst affect-I have always failed miserably when I try for that look. I was always bad with geometry! *laugh* Love the journaling in the smash envie!
