Hello Everyone and welcome to the August color challenge!

Monika is really busy right now and I'm excited to be able to do the color challenge for you this month. Summer is almost over; school will be starting again soon...it's so hard to believe.

So here we go with the palette for this month, it is the palette of the new kit I am just now finishing and will have in the store shortly. The colors and my theme are somewhat vintage, but feel free to create whatever inspires you!


Use this palette to create your layout or create a mini kit to share with us, then post it in the Color Challenge Gallery. (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g535-color-challenge.html)

You're free to use any kit or my starter mini to create your layout.

Then come back to this thread and leave us a link to your page so we can all take a look and leave some love.

As a participation reward, we offer a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month! So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off of every purchase made next month! No coupons required, the discount will automatically apply to your purchase(s). It's important that you're registered in the forum using the same e-mail address.

Here is my starter mini for August: (click preview for direct download)

Here is my take on the color challenge.

08-16-2012, 02:01 AM
I couldn't get the link to work.

It just led to 'someone's files'.

Can you help please.

Luv Chris

Love the rich colors in this mini. I immediately thought of my Victorian Lady Statuette.

Gorgeous mini kit. Thank you so much. Love seeing what everyone else has done with the kit. So much talent our there. I take pictures of my roses all summer long. I love each one and love to make pages with them. Haven't been able to do much scrapbooking this summer due to several circumstances. Hopefully will be able to now. Here is mine. July Rose
