Scrap Your Scraps Summer Challenge :: Week 4 + July Winner!

SYS_Wk4_daysofSchool_UPDATEHappy Sunday, everyone! That means it's another installment of my Scrap Your Scraps Summer Challenge! I've seen many of these adorable layouts with the first and last day of school comparison photos, so I thought I'd give this theme a go with my scraps! This is what I came up with! I didn't have an individual picture of my kids on the last day of school, because my little man insisted on being in the picture with his big sis! So I decided to use it and then separate out their individual first day photos. I really like how it turned out. I was a little bummed at first that I didn't have those individual images, but I think this worked out just as well!SYS_days_DetailGrid_AHI used a lot of my idle Studio Calico stickers, fab strips and miscellaneous bits and pieces that I had in my scrap bags to fill this page full of school and color-themed odds and ends. I really love the color combination of blues, reds and orange. Not typically something I would have put together on my own had I not been concentrating on using up my scraps!

::The July Drawing::
Okay, so here's what I did for this month, and what I will be doing for each month going forward. I am going to enter everyone who entered once per week that they entered the challenge. So if you submitted one project each week you will get 3 entries into the end of the month drawing. So for this first month's drawing there were a few of you that were entered 2-3 times for the drawing. To keep things really fair, I recruited my son to do the drawing. And here are the results!SYS_Wk4_Giveaway1_detail2_AHDrum roll, please! .........And the winner is......SYS_Wk4_giveaway1_AHCongrats, Kathy!!! You've won this humongous box of goodies!!
