August Blog Challenge: #81 Meets the 3Rs!

Are  you ready for an awesome template challenge?  Yes?  That's good because I have the template for you!

For August, Liz has given us another stunning Revisited, Revamped, and Refreshed template. Numerous photo spots pair with pretty scalloped borders to serve up a fresh approach to traditional blocking.   The central mat is fantastic for either journaling or a photo.  Not sure you have enough photos to fill all the spaces?  No problem!  Try using pretty papers.  Maybe turn them into journaling spots or use your favorite quote.  With so many options and such a pretty format, I know this template will be a repeater on my template playlist. 

For those of you who have the older templates, this one was inspired from #81.  Don't you just LOVE the new and improved?  I know I do!

Download is Expired




For your viewing pleasure and inspiration, here is what Liz, Rene, Tracy, Tiff  and I did.  We truly hope you have as much fun with this template as we did.
