Memorable Seasons Blog Hop & SNR pubb'd projects from June issue

Welcome to the start of the Memorable Seasons Blog Hop...

You should have begun hopping at the Memorable Seasons blog and continue on through the DT blogs to see some of what we created during our Members Challenge Us crop. You might also find a few peeks of what the DT are working with for September! Make sure you leave a comment on the Memorable Seasons blog for a chance to win a prize that will be drawn at the end of the hop. The hop will run from Friday, August 31st – Monday, September 3rd with a full reveal of our September kits on the forum on the 4th. The winner of the hop will be revealed on the blog on the 4th also. On Tuesdays throughout September you will find challenges listed on our Forum and on Thursdays you will find the challenge listed on the blog – so make sure you stop by and catch up on what has been going on!

I don't have a DT kit for September, so I can't show you a sneak of that....

But I am going to show my favorite layout that I did for the Members Challenge Crop a few weeks ago ... Honestly, I had done 11 of the 13 challenges, but there were some concerns expressed about the DT having the challenges early, so I decided it would be looked upon more favorably if I only posted what I probably would have gotten done during the crop of the 3 I posted...this one that was Kristin's challenge and was a sketch from Susan Stringfellow at Sketch Savvy (LOVE her sketches)...

So here are all your spots for your blog hop ---

Some fun stuff for this week...

So over at Thinking Through Designs, last week we had a "thought" about using Calendars on our layouts...

and this week we "thought" about using the Chevron pattern..

And At Frosted Designs we had a color challenge (this is a friend of Joseph's and his mom was thrilled when I gave her this canvas!)
