C'est Magnifique August Sketch!

I really have been bad at getting back into the scrapping rhythm after our trip home from the States! Can't believe this is the first challenge I've managed to complete since then. The girls had a chance to do some Irish summer camps with friends and to visit family and do a trip with Dave up to Titanic museum in Belfast too...busy but fun last few weeks of summer!

Here is Nadia's beautiful sketch

I used the beautiful August kit to make this layout, I just love the muted colors in this line and as usual, all the embellies and flowers chosen are gorgeous!

Priceless Treasure - Paper Mixing Bowl August Recipe!

Here is the recipe for August! Margaritas, my favorites!!

I had a lot of fun with this recipe! It uses a combination of My Minds Eye Lost and Found paper and Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue paper and stamps! Following the recipe, I used some clear acetate frames for the photos (My Mind's Eye Be Happy), some torn papers, some netting under the shells...Tropical Travelogue stamp diecuts.... I have hidden journalling about a great day at the beach on a trip our family took to Portugal a few years ago...Aine was collecting shells and is showing them in the photo on the right, so it was perfect to go with the seashells I put on the page! The Priceless Treasure title is from BoBunny Weekend Market sticker sheet!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
