    Happy August!

    It's about that back to school time and one of my favorite back to school memories was getting new shoes. I found this darling fabric that filled me up with all kinds of love and knew i wanted it to be part of this month's inspiration challenge. Take the colors, the theme, the patterns, anything. There is so much to pull from!

    Here is the page I came up with. I pulled a lot from the colors.

    As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad ! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I loved the colors, especially the blues and the circular patten of the material.

    A Collab with Ruth, Age 9. We went with the dark and light blues, and felt the background paper reminded us of shoe laces.

    Here's mine. Probably a stretch, but there's some pink, some dots, and some stripes.
