Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works. It's time for the August 2013 "Less Is More Challenge! I hope everyone's summer (and winter for those in the southern hemisphere) is going fabulously. We have a long weekend coming up here, so I am SO looking forward to some time off to spend with friends and family!

I love you all participating in this challenge and look forward to seeing your layouts every month! This month, I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called MAGIC MEMORIES. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit, leaving nothing out. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers. You can add journaling text or a title, but nothing more. You can duplicate items and use them over again, or clip to shapes that come native to your program. Be creative! And most important - have FUN!

Post your LO here (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1389--91less-is-more-92-challenge-gallery.html) in the "LESS IS MORE" gallery and then link your LO back here in this thread.

Download the mini kit HERE (https://www.dropbox.com/s/thozbke31k47r5j/Studio4%20Magic%20Memories.zip).

Here's what you get to work with this month.

When it comes to occasions you can't do over, film cameras have a distinct disadvantage compared to digital - you don't know whether the picture is any good until the film is developed. Most of the photos I took at the 2001 Cranston Family Reunion did not turn out. Now, with digital, a quick glance at the screen and I can tell if I need to retake the shot or not.

Looking forward to this year's reunion

Love this mini kit. It worked beautifully the photo of my grandma. I never got to know her well as she died when I was in first grade, but I like this photo because she's standing there with a bit of a model's flair.

Holy Cow - I've not been around the last few days - it was a long weekend here in BC and my best friend came into town and just left yesterday. And look at all the layouts! Wow - I love them all. You guys are doing a fabulous job of creating LOs with this mini. I better grab a cup of coffee before I start perusing the gallery!

Visits with best friends are awesome and deserve your full attention! He and his wife spent the entire evening with us because there were so many former students there, their daughter and mine are in the fire department together and his wife enjoyed talking with the grandmas.... :)

Love the mini! I layered two of the papers with an overlay and clustered the elements around my picture. I also used the lock element as part of my word art. I used Pea Joanna Script and Christy fonts. All but the paper layers have a personal shadow attached.

So great looking at all your fabulous LOs. I see there's a bit of an "antiquey/vintage" theme displayed in a lot of the photos. My faves! Love them all!
