The Scrappy Friends Challenges

This is my layout for the Scrappy Friends challenges....

Every month they do a challenge each and if you incorporate all of them you get entered into another 4 chances to win with one layout!!!

For August this is Brenda's sketch....
Rochelle required a 'Travel' theme...

Kristi's recipe was....wood, stripes and mixed alphas.

I followed the sketch, and it is definitely travel related as Alex and Cassie were probably travelling at 30,000ft!!! The wooden embellishments are the 'vacation' tag, 'camera' tag and the pennant with the date...I think the stripes and alpha are obvious!!! LOL

You have until the end of the month to join in!!! I am sure they would love to see you!!

Thank you for visiting!!
