My Croppy Summer Assignment #28

For some reason the #5 Photo Assignment did not post in order. I fixed it so it "floated" to the top of the pile. Maybe it was a subconscious thing - given the picture. Apron Strings is popping up as a sponsor in a couple places over the weekend:
  • First, over at Elle's Studio Blog during their Journaling in Your Own Words class (a FREE class), Apron Strings a featured sponsor tomorrow, the 21st. Wander over there, check out the class and leave a comment and you could win!
  • Next tomorrow The Studio Challenges blog is hosting a one day cyber crop and Apron Strings has a goodie you can win. The crop is one day, but you have a week to get your items done. Looks like it's going to be fun - she has her pre-crop challenge up already.
  • Finally, later today look for a "grab-it" giveaway over at Scrappily Ever After during her month-long Back-to-School challenges. Leave a comment within an hour of the post for your shot to win. There's lots of great inspiration and yummy goodies, including a couple from Apron Strings.
Today begins our jaunts down to Colorado Springs, the Air Force Academy to be exact, for the weekend long tournament. We drew late enough games for tonight and tomorrow that staying down there doesn't make sense, so we'll enjoy a lot of scenery between here and there for a couple days. Depending on the outcomes of the two games, we may stay over Saturday to Sunday because of a 9:30 AM game on Sunday - it's at least an hour and a half drive down, and we need to be at the fields 45 minutes before the game. I don't know what time that means we'd have to get up, but I'm not doing that math! Those drives and games will encompass the majority of the weekend. Any time I may have at home will be taken up with getting October goodies in line for kits.

So, since this week slipped away, there are three challenges for today will be multiple ;) First, we need a sketch, so you'll find a PageMaps sketch below:

Next - a little 5 on Friday action:

  • 2 sheets cardstock
  • 1 sheet patterned paper
  • 1 length ribbon
  • 1 set flowers or buttons

Remember, other than the listed ingredients, only journaling and a title are allowed; NO other items can be used.

And one more thing - with summer winding down, create your layout using summer photos - current photos would be great, but any summer photos will do.

Now, this will be due on Sunday evening. You can create three different layouts; one for each of the different challenges, or you can try to incorporate them all into one. Three different layouts will get you three shots at winning. :)

Okay, off you go to create and off I go for some sight-seeing.
