My Croppy Summer Assignment #7

First, I have been remiss-I had told longtime blog follower and Apron Strings recruiter that I would like share some of her layouts, after she sent me some photos of her work. Melissa is a relatively new member and has been a cropping fool, plus her layouts have inspired a couple colleagues to join Apron Strings. You can see Melissa's great work, inspired by kits and the challenges HERE. Scrolling down you'll not only enjoy her layouts, but see a few familiar kits. Thanks Melissa for sharing your work and story with me - it's always great to hear when people are enjoying their kits. Oh my, I'm starting to get peeks from manufacturers of their Summer CHA releases. Oh my! There are some great lines coming! Beware. :) Okay, the next few days of My Croppy Summer Assignments may be late - I'm hitting billing and shipping. Also, next week will be a shortened Assignment week, so that the following week can be a little longer - something special ;) So, today --- what to do today . . . I think it's time for a little inspiration gathered from previous work. But early work. No, earlier, than that. Like from among your first layouts. Select one of your first layouts and use something on it to inspire a new layout. Not redoing that layout, but creating a new one. Do you like the colors? Use them on today's layout. Did you use stickers? Maybe a lot, like sticker sneezed? Use stickers in a more tame way today. You'll need to link up both the inspiration layout and the one you do today (be sure to note the original and new). This like the others are due on Sunday evening. And ONE MORE THING. . .The Summer Slug. . .er. . .Follower winner :) Meaning you didn't have to do anything more than be a Follower of this blog: Congrats to Emilyt! Emily contact me at to get your prize.

Okay, I noticed that as I skimmed through my first album that all of my page backgrounds were white - no patterned paper to be found!

I selected a soccer LO as my inspiration. I stayed with that theme on my new LO and I also tried to mimic the offset square look that was hand-drawn by replacing it with patterned paper.

Looking at that inspiration LO, I have no idea why I thought stickers of dogs wearing soccer cleats was ever a good idea: )
