Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!

This week marks the LAST WEEK of your 12 week Got Talent Contest!  I can't believe how fast the 12 weeks have gone by!  ALL ENTRIES MUST BE IN BY MIDNIGHT, AUGUST 31, EST, to be eligible for the Grand Prize of the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection!

My challenge for this last week was to create a page that uses ONLY patterned paper (with the exception of one piece of cardstock for the background if desired).  This was  HUGE challenge for me!  It was really tough.  I used the Crate Paper Notes & Things collection for this page:

I even used patterned paper for my title.  I wrote the word "summer" backwards in cursive on the back of a piece of patterned paper and cut it out by hand!    Hope you can join us for the last challenges!
