Hello Scrappy Peeps!  We've done it again!!  Since we had a record number of  players for our July "Double Dare" 2 page layout, we decided to CHALLENGE you all with another 2 PAGER for September!

This 2 page sketch caught our eye on a post on Pinterest - (serious inspiration on that website -right?!!)  and we HOPE you will PLAY ALONG with us this month!

So without further "A-DOO" - here is the sketch for this month's challenge:  (CLICK on the photos below to enlarge)

Now, for your INSPIRATION.....
Here is our DT Member Adina's Inspiration "BOOGIE MAMBO":

Besides the adorable photos of her little girl, I'm LOVIN' her use of the Tattered Angel's Chalkboard Glimmer Mists in the "white" spaces of the layout!!  That sparkly Blue ribbon from May Arts across the top really "BLINGS" out the layout -and makes those dance costumes sparkle too!

Here are the items from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo that Adina used in her AWESOME Layout! CLICK ON them and check them out!

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist - Canary
Bazzill Canvas Cardstock - Arctic
Bazzill Cardstock Lemon Drop Yellow
Queen &Co Self Adhesive Rhinestones - Brilliant Blue

 Next up is my layout. 
Now, for those of you that know me - you know that I'm all about layers, and mixing patterned paper.   This sketch was a challenge to me at first, with all that white space!!  After a trip to THE DOO - I found this AWESOME NEW Paper Line "SNAPSHOTS" from Bella Blvd and I just "had to have it!!"  I decided it was perfect and used it to really put my own twist on the sketch by filling that white space in!  What do you think?......

These photos are from our trip to North Topsail Beach, NC, a few weeks ago. We had a great time relaxing, and I had a blast "Snapping Pics!"  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the layered banners!!!  I'm going to have to use this idea on layouts in the future!!  I had FUN using the HOT NEW "ZIG" Wink of Stella Brush! I used the Distress Stains to color in the Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters I used for the title -then used the CLEAR Zig Stella Brush over the top of them, and then gave them a coat of clear DIMENSIONAL MAGIC.

Wanna play along?   We HOPE you will!  Here are the rules/how the Challenge works:
We post a sketch challenge each month, (both on this BLOG and on THE DOO's Facebook Page.) Qualifying participants will be entered to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Scrap-A-Doodle Doo. In order to qualify, you must interpret the sketch provided (so we can "see" it!) and submit your entry via Mr. Linky below before the end of the month. Because this is a Scrap-A-Doodle Doo sponsored challenge, ONLY layouts, cards, or projects submitted that use products carried/sold by Scrap-A-Doodle Doo will be eligible to win the Gift Certificate. (Because Scrap-A-Doodle Doo has literally THOUSANDS of items from over 250+ manufacturers, this should be easy! :)  Winner will be chosen by a random generator on the 15th of the following month (in this case October 15th) Contest is only open to US residents, but EVERYONE is welcome to play along!

So head on over to the store's website, check out the product listing using the search feature to verify that the products you are using are carried by the store, and then get crafty!! :)

Hope you play along - can't wait to see what everyone creates!
