Summer- Project Life for SOUS

Today over at SOUS, the Project Life challenge was to Make a List! I chose to use a printed Summer Bucket List card for my layout. I wrote a list of things we had done that went with the pictures I wanted to use. It was a great, relaxing summer and we sure enjoyed the nice weather we had here this year.  So sad that it's over, but there's always next year!

If you decide to participate in the challenge, make sure to link up your project on the SOUS blog for a chance to win a great prize! And don't forget to take a look at what the other designers have come up with!

Dance Your Heart Out- SOUS Reveal

What a busy summer we had over here! I'm glad that things are slowly falling back into routine. I haven't done any scrapping for months now as we've been gone most of the summer. I'm happy to be getting to it again and catching up on my projects! That's why I'm so excited that there is another great sketch is up on the SOUS blog today! It was perfect to scrap this photo of Renee. Her last round of dance in June was the Hagallah. It is a very fun and lively Egyptian folk dance. She and her group had a fantastic time performing at the festival and they have a few more engagements booked to show off their mad skills!

Please stop on by the blog to see how everyone interpreted this wonderful sketch! If you have time to try it yourself, remember that SOUS is now offering a great prize pack to one lucky challenge participant for the month!

Everyday Life- Project Life

This week the challenge at SOUS for Project Life was to use twine on your layout. I love these little challenges because they are a good reminder to use that product that you have laying around.  I used the twine in a couple of different ways. I tied some onto a letter in my title. I used some on a tag and I wrapped some around a card. I also tied a little bow and put it behind my flower. Such a versatile little product!

Pop on over to the SOUS blog to see how everyone else used their twine. Remember that we are offering a monthly prize to one of our challenge participants, so be sure to enter your layout. Have a great day everyone!

Calm Life- SOUS- Project Life

Today at SOUS, the Project Life Challenge was to use a Quote Card! There are so many freebies available these days that you won't have far to look to find one to use on your spread. I had saved this one on my computer, but sadly don't know where I got it from otherwise I'd like to give a link as to where to find it.

The quote says...It's okay to be happy with a calm life. Sometimes, that's just the way I like and the ordinary things in life can add to that calmness and peace in your everyday.

Hope you get a chance to pop on over to the SOUS blog and enter your project for a chance to win a great prize at the end of the month!

Project Life- SOUS

Happy Summer Everyone! Hope you're having fantastic weather and enjoying the outdoors as much as I am! This week at SOUS our Project Life Challenge is do a spread about Summer! Well, this is pretty easy seeing as we spend a lot of time outside and at the lake during the summer months. Some days at the lake are just lazy days. We spend time on the deck laying around, reading, talking and just soaking up some sun.

I am taking a Silhouette class and I made the little Polaroid Summer Frame that I tucked by the photo. One day soon, I'm going to learn how to share these with you all!

Remember that SOUS is offering a great monthly prize to one of our challenge participants, so be sure to enter your project on our blog!
