Happy (almost) Fall! I’m sure that you all have some photos that were taken outdoors over the Summer and now’s your chance to start scrapping them; as the title of this month’s challenge says, it’s all about The Great Outdoors.
Here’s how this Challenge works: Create a project (scrapbook layout, canvas, card, tag, OTP project, it’s up to you) that includes something that “flutters” – butterflies, dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, birds, fairies – we all have these among our embellies, dies and punches, right? And take a look at your pattern paper – do you have a sheet or two that includes a flutterby image? You can use any of your scrappy supplies (one exception: nothing from other kit clubs, please), but you get extra points in the random drawing for using Swirly Stuff.
And now for something different: You don’t need to use your Swirlydoos Kit to play along. However, the inclusion of Swirly Stuff from past kits or from the Boutique (must be at least 50%) will give you a an extra point; ingredients from the July “Sprocket” kit will give you one more. Each month, I’ll be adding a couple of twists – one for the theme and one for the technique. So every entry can count for up to five points when it’s time to pick the random winner.
The Theme: The Great Outdoors. Let’s see some of the wonderful photos you’ve been taking over the past few months. They don’t have to be exotic; some of the best days are spent in our back yards.
The Technique: Brads! Krissy included a package of those wonderful Prima Trinkets in the July Kit and we all have tons of them squirreled away. They make great embellies and fillers; let’s start using up that stash!!!!
You can share your finished entry here on this thread and in the “September ATF” folder in the Swirlydoos Gallery on Facebook. If you don’t have a Facebook account, no worries; uploading your entry here will still count.
Please note in the description or title that it’s for the “September” ATF Challenge.
You can enter as many layouts and projects as you wish; in order to “earn” those extra points, please point out the qualifiers (name/month of kit, technique, etc.) in your description.
The Challenge will be open through Thursday, September 30. I’ll be announcing a random winner of a small RAK on October 1.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!!!

I’m claiming that the butterflies that are part of the pattern of the New York Headlines sheet count as the flutterbies if only because the design of this paper makes such a wonderful setting for my granddaughter’s pride in her catch.

Great theme this month Peggy. Hoping I get this done. With me traveling, it’s going to be a short month for scrapping.
