    It's been a year since my first Build a Background template challenge, and I thought it would be fun to do another! For August we are building a page or project with a quilt style background made with Kim's beautiful papers. I've designed a free template to help everyone with this. You can find it in Kim's store HERE.
    Add Photos and elements as you like to make a scrapbook page on top of the background made with Kim's papers, or make a card, etc. Feel free to get creative and use the template as you like, but make sure it is still recognizable in your final project. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    Rules:
    Use at least 75% Kim Jensen Designs product (current or retired from TLP) to create your layout meeting the criteria listed above.
    Upload your layout to the Kim Jensen gallery. Please include your credits.
    Post your layout to this thread and link to your gallery post.
    Layouts must be new for this challenge and cannot be combined with other challenges.
    All layouts must be posted by 11:59pm PDT, August 31, 2021.

    Prizes:
    One layout will be chosen to receive a $10 coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    All other participants will receive a 20% off coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    You may enter multiple layouts to increase your odds of winning the $10 prize, but each scrapper will only receive one coupon.

    Here is how I used the template

    and how some of my fellow CT members used it.

    Here’s my page about my BFF’s son, a real tomboy. I loved the fluorescent colors in the photo and Kim’s matching kit:
