    See post #27 for the winner.

    Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying Summer School here at TLP! I'm going to host the Christmas in July Challenge. YAY! :) Did you look at all that is on sale this week? At 35% off! If not, check it out HERE! Remember, this includes Christmas, Winter and Document your December items! WOW!

    I am a scrapper, obviously :giggle, but I seem to prefer to scrap everyday or random moments, rather than events. Christmas and holidays in general are bigger events to me, so many times, I will put those photos to the side to scrap later. If you are like me though, you have plenty of winter and Christmas kits in your stash. I end up usually using them for non-Christmas layouts! These kits are way more versatile than you think, you just have to think around the theme sometimes.

    For this challenge, I would like you to use Christmas, Holiday or Winter Themed supplies for a non-Christmas, non-Holiday or non-Winter layout! You're going to scrap off theme!

    For my layout, I went a little more dramatic, and used the basic colors of the kits and combined that with the reds, greens and blues also found in the Christmas Kits. I also used leaves with berries under neath my flower, just hiding the holiday berries. I used As In Olden Days Bundle by Mommyish, and Winter Traditions by Etc. By Danyale.

    so i have always liked less traditional looking xmas kits for this reason - i scrap more non-xmas than xmas pages, (always feel accomplished when i get an actual xmas page finished though ;) ) and the hexagons and the lovely bkgd paper in Sara's Advent kit were what started this sorta shape based page, and the word art in Just Jaimee and Mommy-ish's Shelf Elf is obviously very versatile (and i thought the wooden cutout mat looked less like trees and more just like triangles rotated upside down). Thanks!

    When I was browsing thru the Christmas kits last week, I fell in love with Mad for Plaid by Sahlin Studio.
    And then along came this challenge. I had the most absolute PERFECT photo for my non-Christmas layout. Everything here (aside from the photo) is from the kit, albeit I may have cut and colored the word art to make it work in a non-Christmas setting. Here it is.

    This was hard for me! I wanted more greenery but all the kit had was pine needle type things and I wasn't about to put those on my page :P Thanks for the challenge!
