Auntie Em's Design Team - August project

August is here ... which means my daughter is going school in a month ... she is FOUR, when did she grow up that she is going to school?  Wow, the time sure flew by.  I'll be honest, it was right around July 7 or 8th that I went into a Walmart in the City and noticed they had their 'back to school' stuff all displayed where the Canadian flags were hanging out just the week before .... that's when it hit me .... my daughter is going to be going to school ... I too will be one of those shoppers prying the last pink, Hello Kitty pencil case out of the unsuspecting hands of some other mother who is trying to make her own daughter happy to be going back to school.  I have to buy her 'gym shoes', she doesn't have different shoes at home, heck sometimes she doesn't even wear shoes, she loves running in the grass and sandbox barefoot. 
OK, back to scrapbooking!  Emma provided the Design Team with the Prima Songbird collection.  I instantly had in mind some photos of a beautiful sunset in the backdrop of my daughter eating S'mores at a lakeside home.  We were visiting one of my Bestie's Mandy - she has a beautiful home on the lake and the kids were in heaven when she offered to put a fire in her chiminea so we could make S'mores!  The sketch I was working from has three photos, and you know me and my difficulty with multiple photos!  Well I took the opportunity to use different photos to create an extended look of the marshmallow on the stick and printed them in sepia while I kept the peaches and blues in the colour photo of my daughter eating her smores, perfect coupling for the colours in the paper line.  I turned the sketch on it's side as I liked the vertical lines in this paper rather than horizontal, I loved the birdy totem pole!

Let me know what you think!

Please visit the Auntie Em's blog to see what the other DT members have done with this paper line and the Page Map's August sketch.  You too can play along in this adventure - all you have to do is create a layout based on the August sketch ensuring you use either banners, flags or pendants.  I used mine in the title.  Your materials for the layout must have been purchased from Auntie Em's and you must bring your layout to Auntie Em's Scrapbooking before the end of the month.
