Yayyyy it's July and I get to host a new Template Challenge!!

The rules for the challenge are:
I will provide you with a template, and your job is to use the template to create a layout! You can use the template as is, change it around, flip it, rotate it, crop it, add to it, take away from it, whatever you wish to do! When your finished with your layout, please post it to the Template Challenge Gallery & post a link back here so we can all leave you some love!

There are no restrictions on supplies, you can use whatever is in your stash to make your layout! However, with the new Layout of the Week, if you use Studio products, don't forget to add your layout to the LOTW Gallery, too! You could win $5 to theStudio PU Store!!

Also - the participation prizes have changed. We are no longer offering points for completing challenges. We are offering a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month! So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted, you will receive 10% off of every purchase made in June! No coupons required, the discount will automatically apply to your purchase(s)! And, this is on top of any/all sale prices in effect at the time of purchase!!

Here is the template we will be working with this month:

My first template challenge. It's fun :) going to try again :)
And I do not use theStudio's product. I have this kit and I think it's suitable for the photos I'm using.

Thank you for joining in! Your layout turned out beautifully!!
I am happy you enjoyed your first template challenge. :)

i LOVE how you have part of the birds popping out of their little hexagons - that must have taken a ton of work - but it really makes it pop and it looks awesome!

Here's my page. Still not sure if I'm happy with it.

I did mine a little differently and added a few extra hexagon to form flowers. I thought that came out cute, but it didn't leae room for clutering element or anything like that ,because the paper flowers were the whole design. I don't think the picture is working very well,so I might replace that at a later date, but it works for now. It's part of my faithbooking album. Image linked.
