TN Time with Lisa & Lori ~ August Edition

Happy Monday!  It's time to kick off the next edition of TN Time with Lisa & Lori!! I am super excited about the challenge this month, I had a lot of fun creating this month's spread!  So let's get this party started!!

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CST to link up your entries. If you complete my sketch challenge link your TN, bullet journal or planner spread below. If you combined my challenge with Lori's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lori's Blog (My Happy Life).  You will then have a chance to win my prize as well as Lori's prize!  That's a chance to win TWO times with ONE layout! WOW!

Now for my challenge!! Here is this month's sketch:

 Now for Lori's fun challenge (August 10th - September 9th):
So break out those patterned papers and let's see how many patterns you can use on one spread!!!  Have fun with it ladies!   
Here is my layout using both the sketch and Lori's challenge to use at least 3 different patterned papers: I used EIGHT patterned papers on my layout! I was able to use up a few scraps on this spread and was happy to see how well all the patterns coordinated since I used a variety of different manufacturers!
Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Auburn Lane(pink stripe), CTMH Boutique (green words and small floral strip), One Canoe 2 Willow (pink,doily paper and plum), Pink Paislee Indigo & Ivy (green under picture) & My Mind's Eye Sweetest Thing (white strip); Letter stickers: Scenic Route; butterflies: Maggie Holmes Sweet Story (green) & One Canoe Two; word strips: Crate Paper Willow and One Canoe Two; enamel dot: My Mind's Eye; punch- Stampin' Up notebook edger; die: unknown source

Here are a few close ups:

I thought the punched edge was a nice touch with the super cute butterfly!  I am loving these Sweet Story butterflies, so glad I was gifted them! The doily is so pretty and I wish I had more, this one is from my friend Kammi, I will have to check with her to see where she got this die as I love it!  It gives a nice subtle touch that I felt this layout called for, I tried using a tab as called for in the sketch but that seemed to look to harsh and I didn't like it on my layout!

I loved this ephemera piece from Maggie Holmes Sweet Story that I was gifted back in April and have been hoarding ever since!  Time to use it up!  I didn't really have any of the Sweet Story papers but the CTMH Boutique, Pink Paislee Auburn Lane and One Canoe Two Willow lines go beautifully with it! So glad since for those lines I don't have many embellishments!  I was really running out of things to document in my TN since during the pandemic I haven't been able to do the things I had planned for this Summer, all my travel plans got canceled, all the retreats I had signed up for were canceled and no one wants to get together which I totally understand so it's just me here in my little ole' house by myself trying to find things to keep me busy, so I decided to document a few of those and one of the biggest was trying my hand at some redecorating!

  1. This is beautiful, Lisa! And 8 papers! That is awesome! I was going through my photos from the last couple of months and realized I haven't taken a whole lot in August! I had better get busy or my August Project Life spreads are going to be lacking!
