It's Monday and time for another fabulous color challenge with the Design Dollies. This week's colors are black, burgandy and yellow. My girls look so sad in these photos. They were running out of steam near the end of our family photo shoot last year. Maybe this year we will be able to get some smiles! The Dollies would love to see what you can create with the color combination. Play along for your chance to win a Spooky prize pack featuring Basic Grey! Remember, your creations must be NEW for this challenge and you MUST link back to the Dollhouse no later than MIDNIGHT EST on Sunday, September 26th. Happy scrapping!

September {SAS}sy Reveal!

I was so happy to be able to work with Bo Bunny's Sun Kissed Collection and SEI's On The Coast Collection this month for Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. The colors of these two collections are bold and vibrant. The patterns of the Bo Bunny papers and the texture of the SEI papers coordinated so well together and they were perfect for capturing the last moments of summer. A little bit of Prima bling, Dear Lizzy Thickers and Adornit Glitter Alphas were the perfect finishing touches. Please see my online gallery for a list of the products I used on each page.

Lolla Memories

Paper: Moxxie
Flowers: Sassafras
Mist: Clearsnap

I created this layout for the September Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Scrapbook Play Challenge. Who says there are rules in scrapbooking? The {SAS}sy Scrapbook Play Challenges will help you "cut loose" and open your eyes to all the rules you follow, consciously or not. The "golden three" of scrapbooking pages are a title, photo and journaling, but these elements are not mandatory. The challenge this month is to create a page WITHOUT a photo, journaling and a title are optional. I collected several items during my time at Lollapalooza, but I didn't take a lot of photos. I wanted to preserve the memories of my trips to and from the concert grounds in a unique way. Instead of taking a photo of myself riding the Metra or standing in line, I chose to keep ticket stubs and pages from the concert program. If you've never been to Lollapalooza it's a fabulous 3-day music festival in Chicago. I had a great time! The {SAS}sy team would love to see what you can create with your memorabilia. Thanks for playing along!
