Default Re: August Surprise Me! Border Challenge

Great layout and border, Karen! I love how you tucked photos into the layers of the border, and your use of the styles is perfect! Chris, what a lovely border! Very classic and elegant! Lovely photo frames and great use of the mask and word art too! I'm glad you enjoyed using the styles, Kay! Making the glitter border was a great idea. The color of the glitter really brings out the gold in the Sea Adventure title and some of the other elements!
Kay - after you installed your styles and PSE rebuild the database, did you delete the Old Database? Try that, if not. But I'm glad you were able to use the PSE Friendly Strips!

Thanks , ladies, for your beautiful layouts!

Ahh... is he the cutest EVER? Proud Grandma, you are, I know!!! As you should be.
This is adorable! I love how you used the styles on the stitches to make them just shine! And love the zipper and stripped paper borders too! Borders can be complex or beautifully fuss-free. I love seeing both kinds here in this challenge! Thanks, Michi, for joining us.

I use Storybook which doesn't have styles exactly (more like surface textures). Anyway, I did make a layout this month with a border, and I did use another feature of Storybook - the paper cutter with a scalloped edge. So, even though my layout doesn't exactly meet the criteria, I'm sharing anyway!!

I used Snickerdoodle's Sporty Sass collection for this one

Nothing like getting a layout done at the last moment. What a busy month I've had. Here is my layout for this challenge. I used an inked edge styles by Mandy Steward on my borders.

Diane… it's okay! I'm glad you made it!!! Very cute border! I really like how you used the flowers on the right to edge the border and the tree truck on the left! Very cool border, Jen. I like all of the layering/stacking on it! And Blue is the most unusual dog ever! N wonder you love her! Yes, Teri, I think August hit everyone that I know really hard, including me! Thank you for making the effort to get this adorable layout in on time. The inked edge styles you used on your borders are really beautiful. And I love how you created your border with the colorful wavy cut and the flowers! Very pretty! We have 4 more hours before we call this a wrap? Anyone else frantically working on theirs right now???
