XOXO Challenge 20 :)

A day late and a dollar short with this post! Summer is such a hectic and crazy time, I just don't have enough hours in a day. The lazy days of summer...not in this house!

The Lipstick Chicks are back with July's challenge, making it super easy to squeeze in some scrappy time. Just choose one or more of our layouts to scraplift, and watch those albums fill up fast. You could do a whole album with all of the layouts our amazing design team comes up with each month! Our super secret prize comes from the lovely admin diva Kate this month, and you want it, trust me.

Here's my layout for this month. This is a layout featuring my great-grandmother and grandmother as a child on a trip to a camp in Rangely, ME which they took often. I love that I have all of these old family photos to work with, and glad to get them out of the old acid-filled albums they used to be in.
Scenic Route Asheville for paper and chipboard word stickers, as well as alpha stickers in title. All papers, including kraft background, inked with SEI charcoal and turquoise. Random transparency.
Cute little star stamps. No manufacturer info, sorry! Came in a grab bag with no identifying info.
Random lace with stick pins. Pics don't really do these beauties justice! Grid paper from Scenic Route, accented with my SEI chalkbox charcoal ink.
Corners are Scenic Route. Doily from Chip Chop Shop held in place with an MM brad.
Recollections heart/flower brads. Stuff2Scrap chipboard frame inked and stamped lightly with star stamp. Random chipboard flower with DCWV doodle rub on in center.

So head on over to XOXO and scraplift (me HA) today! Link your project up by the end of the month for a shot at a great prize. Have a great day!

Another beauty of a layout Khristen. I love it when people share their old family photos, the page is so much more meaningful and you are lucky to have such great photos to use. Nice that you are having a busy summer and packing a lot of new memories in. CoB
