Colleen here with our 3rd month of challenges.  I hope you are having fun and getting some pages done.  This month is pretty easy, please make your own border, no machines or stickers (notice I didn't say you couldn't use dies) and also I want to see your own handwriting on the page.

We have a  prize of a small baggie of goodies from the Design Team plus FREE SHIPPING for one order at (Sorry. Free shipping is to US mailing address only; $5 discount to international addresses.)  All you have to do is complete this challenge, and following the other view items listed below and your name will be entered.

 Of course there are a few items we would like you to do for us besides show us your beautiful layout;
1. Become a Follower of this Blog; 
2. This must be a new layout;
3. Provide a link to your blog in the comments so we can see your beautiful layout; and
4. Have your layout posted by the end of the month.

Here is my layout as an example.

No tutorial this month as it is pretty self explanatory.  I used my spellbinder dies and some punches to punch out the circles.  I hand drew the stitching lines around each one and inked the edges.  The Title and 2 signs were cut out using my Cameo machine.  I used the Best Glue Ever to adhere everything down.  Since the little signs needed some color behind it, I used the Embellie Jellie to adhere all the centers to the letters like the "A's, O's, D and B. 

If you have not tried the Embellie Jellie you really need to purchase it, it saves so much time and frustration when working with little things.

Thank you for looking and can't wait to see what you create.
