A Challenge & A Desktop Freebie...

Okeeeee... it's challenge time again, over at Donna's blog... The fabulous Mel has created this gorgeous layered template for us to play with -

I love the layered look on LOs, but I'm hopeless at designing them, so this template was realy just perfect to help me on my way... so here's what I created with it using In This Moment, Cuteness & Digi Basics -

In addition to the fun challenge, I created a new desktop for August, since July is well and try on it's way out... Grab it free at Donna's blog -

We have our next Rockin' Girl CT Spotlight...

And the spotlight is on the wonderful Lia! She's got a fabulous challenge happening asking us to try out clustering and using white space. She's also created a couple of gorgeous clusters which are being given away on the blog... you've got to go and check it out!

Here was my take on the challenge... I kinda scrap-lifted the LO that Lia used as her example.... it was really quite a task for me to do this LO because this is not my normal style... but I loved how it turned out -
