August Challenge

This months challenge at SUYS is a Sketch Challenge. Creative team member Kim is creator of the challenge site 'Sketches with a Twist' (SWAT), so this month SUYS and SWAT have teamed up to bring you this months challenge. This means that for this month you can enter your creation in both challenges if you follow all the criteria for both sites on the one layout :)

The sketch is below (thanks to Annette Gearside, one of the SWAT team members for creating the sketch):

To enter this challenge at SUYS don't forget that you need to also have a handmade embellishment. AND this month if you want to enter it over at SWAT it also needs to include a 'safety pin' somewhere :)

Here are our creative team samples:


Sophie's handmade embellishment is a flower she has made herself to coordinate with her page, awesome hey! Loving the colour palette she has chosen here.

Next we have Charmane's layout

Here Charmane has used her own handmade creations; Charms Creations Fabulous Flowers and Flag Banners. The banners and flowers work perfectly with the SWAT sketch!

She has also used an A Piece of Cake Designs 'Cherry Flair' button from the 'Everyday Cork' range.

We will be back soon with more creative team shares and information about our August Sponsors, we hope you will join us in this challenge this month :)
Next we have Leanne's sweet layout!
Here is the close up of her hand made goodies from D'Lish and A Piece of Cake Designs
