AFT Designs - September Challenge & Prize

Recommended Posts

As we are moving into September, I’m starting to look forward to fall (it’s my favorite season) but before I get to ahead of myself, I want to take a little time to reflect on summer.

So how about a challenge? The challenge is simple, just create a layout about a favorite summer memory. It doesn’t even necessarily need to be this summer, just any summer memory you may have. Don’t have a photo b/c it’s something from the past? That’s fine, photo-less layouts work as well.

 

How

The challenge will run from Sept 1st - Sept 30th. Create a layout featuring your summer memory, post it in the gallery, and then share it here with us in this thread as well.

 

I ask that the layout utilize at least 30-50% of items from my store. (Don’t overthink that percentage, just make sure some of  my items are used pretty please)

 

Prize

A $5 coupon good for anything in my store.

 

Everyone that follows the guidelines will be entered into the drawing!

 

And please share! When you post, tell us about why it was your favorite memory, or a little bit about your layout.

 

Here are a few products and layouts that may stimulate some creativity, but please note you don’t have to use these, they’re just suggestions and perhaps some of my own favorite summer memories :) (images are linked to products)

Thank you Amanda for this challenge!
For me it's a nice memory, a walk with my husband in the old Nice where we like to walk, it's a place picturesque and colorful place and always lively!

Remember

Fun challenge, thank you Amanda!  Fall is my favorite season, the only "sad" thing about it is that the hummingbirds leave for the season.   I LOVE watching "my" hummingbirds.

We just got back from spending Labor Day weekend in Corpus Christi.  I love watching the girls play on the beach and in the waves - seems like we so rarely get out and do anything outside of our normal routine!  And here's the link to the layout in my own gallery:  Follow Your Bliss

Oh I can only imagine! Love this!

Conda, I'm jealous of your Hummies! I have a feeder but rarely see them.

Mikelle - beautiful! I love a good whole photo layout, I should do more of those myself.

Thank you Bea! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Amanda, I have 5 feeders and have been filling them every other day.  There are SO MANY of them and they are sucking my feeders dry!  I am sad that they will be gone in a week or two.  I'm already thinking of upping my feeder game next year.  Actually, we are redoing the landscaping where I have most of the feeders and I plan to replace the existing shrubs/plants with hummer and butterfly friendly flowers.  (DH may not know this yet, but....)  I should track how many pounds of sugar I use each week for them.  #hummingbirdgeek #notashamed

wow! I was happy with the 3 hummers that visit my front feeder and the 2 that visit the back. I love to watch them fight over the feeders!

When I first had hummingbirds, I didn't like that they fought over the feeders.  I would rarely have more than one on a feeder at a time.  Now I love listening to them chirp and chatter at each other and they are so fun to watch!

I have a layout but am confused to where I should post it. Is there a special gallery? Or should I just post it here? :dunno:

I think it can go in any gallery but also post the link and photo here.  At least that’s what I did. 😉

That’s how I understood it too; you can post in any Gallery.

That's awesome! I live in a planned neighborhood and it's like everyone has one so I'm sure that has to do with it as well. We joke about going and knocking other ones down so they have to come to ours. HAHAHA!

Thanks, Amanda and others for answering my question. :)

Here's my September Challenge layout. One of our favorite things about summer is going for ice cream after dinner. It's still light out and ice cream of course tastes great, especially in hot weather. I try not to eat ice cream often (Someone told me it has calories, LOL) but when we are with our grandkids, then that's different!

It was a lot of fun getting to dip into my AFT (and ASO) stash for this. Thanks for the challenge!

You look like you are having a fabulous time, Debby! I love the summery watery colors here.
