Shelly's Images AUGUST Challenge

It's AUGUST already?  
Where has the summer gone??  
The kids will be back in school before you know it!  

With the start of a new month, that means a brand new challenge over at Shelly's Images.  
This month's challenge is all about using up those

Today the team is featuring an adorable new image by Shelly called "Sweet Baby"!  
Did you notice that this image comes in THREE different versions?  How cool is that!

This is SO APPROPRIATE to use for our August challenge BECAUSE . . . Shelly's daughter is expecting their first child this month and that means Shelly's going to be a GRANDMA!! 

Here's the card I created for today's challenge ... what do you think?
I loved being able to reach into my box of scraps and put this one together!  
(I should really do that more often ... my scrap box is overflowing!)


Jump right on over to Shelly's Images to check out the creation made with the other versions of this image by our 'very talented' design team!  And then I hope you'll join in our challenge fun.  Remember, you will have THE ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST to play along with a chance to win FREE images from Shelly's Images!
