July Template Challenge - Revisited 13

Welcome to July!  Liz's template for this month's blog challenge is perfect for summer.  It's full of curves and waves that fit perfectly with many many themes.  The instant I saw it, I knew exactly which story I wanted to tell.  So without further ado, I'll show you what I mean.


Being summer here in North America, the CT immediately went with summery type photos, but the longer I look at this template, the more I think it might be perfect for a winter layout as well - snow drifts, sledding, ice skating.  What do you think of when you look at it?

Speaking of CT layouts, I have three for you this month and here they are:

by Christine
using Beachy Keen by Studio Flergs & Eva Kipler

by Donna
using Great Escape {Alaska} by WM Squared + Let's Camp S'More by Chelle's Creations
+ The Donna (font) + Silom (font)

by Kimberley
using American Pride Collection by SuzyQ Scraps + Pacifico (font) + Of Wildflowers & Wings (font)

So that's our take on this template.  What's yours?  Leave a comment with a link to your creation and you may be the lucky winner in July.  Speaking of winners, here's our winner for June.

Congratulations, Carolyn!  Your layout was randomly selected as our winner for the June challenge.  

Leave her some Gallery Love

Thanks to everyone for playing along.  I'll send out the winner and participation prizes in the next few days.  

Here are the official rules for July's challenge:  
  1. Use the featured template (above) to create a layout or hybrid project.  Feel free to modify the template but make certain we can still recognize it as a version of the original.  
  2. Upload your completed layout to the ScrapPin gallery at Scrap Orchard or a photo sharing site of your choice. (Please do not upload to a site that will require me to register in order to view the layout.  Use either a Scrap Orchard gallery or someplace such as Photobucket or TinyPic to host your layout)
  3. If uploading to the ScrapPin gallery at Scrap Orchard please include the following in addition to your other hashtags:  #swlblogjuly2013 (feel free to copy and past this hashtag)
  4. Come back to this blog post and leave a comment with a link to your completed layout by July 31, 2013
  5. Winner of the $5 coupon will be chosen and announced the first Tuesday in June!  Non-winning participants will receive a participation prize so remember to leave us a way to reach you when you link your layouts

Happy Scrapping!
