Feeling Edgy?

Hi everyone. I hope you are still in your PJs, sipping on a coffee, enjoying your Labor Day holiday. Isn't that what Labor Day is for? LOL!

It's the first Monday of the month, so it is time for me to issue the Paper Poppy challenge. And, as Frances told you last week, we are taking your lead and combining our monthly sketch with our monthly challenge. Great idea, Paper Poppy People! Here's the sketch.

Can you guess the challenge? This month we want you to use at least three different edges. Anything but straight. Tear it, punch it, use a border sticker. At least three. Here's my take.

Poster Boys

Ok, so first, I just want to say that even though this kit is soft and full of pink, it can still be used for your boy pics. There are plenty of blues in the kit, including the super fun Typo Thickers in Peacock.

For my edges, I chose to use an Indie Girl banner sticker and two Indie Girl paper edges. All five of the Sassafras Lass papers have fabulous scalloped edges on them that are just perfect for this challenge.

My favorite addition to this layout are the flowers. In this month's Add On, you get a variety of raw chipboard pieces. Three of mine were flowers. I covered each one with more of that fabulous vintage dictionary paper. Then added on a vintage milk cap and a punched sunburst. How cute is that little Jenni Bowlin pearl button? Mwuah! LOVE it. You get six in this month's kit.

I can't wait to see what you do with this month's Paper Poppy Sketch Challenge. Link up your layout in the sidebar at the blog by September 25th for your chance to win a $10.00 voucher to the store. Yep, $10. What a great prize!

Wonderful layout! I love how you used the paper for a boy layout! I'm going to do the same. Just found a picture that will blend great with the Indie Girl papers!
