Hello challenge friends! Welcome to the August Blog Challenge! How is this the last month of summer (or maybe it is winter where you are and you are longing for some warm air to flow your way)?! Anyway, before I share this new challenge with you all, we need to see who the lucky winner for July's template challenge is!!! You can take a peek at all the amazing entries HERE.

The lucky winner for this month is RJMJ!!!

Congratulations RJMJ!!! You have a notification on your TLP account.
All other participants will also receive their 25% discount coupons via their Lilypad accounts. Please make sure you check your messages everyone and if your coupon didn't come through send an e-mail to pinkreptiledesigns at gmail dot com!

Here's RJMJ's gorgeous page:

For this month's challenge we are using the latest Three Way | Pattern your Pages as our inspiration for this challenge. Your job, should you wish to play along, is to create a page using at least 3 patterned papers for 1 entry.

BONUS: if you follow one of the Three Way rules of using patterned papers on your page you will get 2 entries.

To recap the Three Way | Pattern your Pages post:

1) Use one type of pattern and really go all out with that pattern on your page. Use at least 3 patterned papers with one type of pattern (The Three Way example uses 3 different striped papers on a page - adding other patterns or solids are just fine, but have at least 3 papers with the same pattern used in a BOLD way!)

2) Take a bold pattern and really work it. Use the pattern's design in a unique way. (The Three Way example uses those big dots in multiple creative ways - cut outs, word art around the cut outs and bits of another pattern peeking through.)

3) Clip patterned papers to an element on your page and repeat it for impact. This lets you fill the page with lots of color and pattern but with fun shapes. Be creative and go beyond the usual circle, square or triangle. I know you can come up with something fabulous!

Please indicate if your page is being submitted for a bonus entry by sharing which one you used on your page when you share your link! And please ask if you have questions about the challenge!

Take a peek at these creative pages created by the Pink Ladies:

First is a page by Rikki demonstrating Three Way #3. Rikki clips PPs to petal shapes to form a big flower.

Stefanie demonstrates # 1 by using 3 different dot papers on her page.

Diane uses 3 checkered papers - also demonstrating # 1.

Karen demonstrates #2 by clipping lots of different PPs to speech bubble elements from her kits and repeats them across the top of her page.

Christa follows #1 and uses 3 different dot papers on her page.

Nini demonstrates #1 with her page using 3 different striped papers.

We cannot wait to see how you are inspired to play with patterns on your page!

Make sure you use at least 75% of Pink Reptile Design products on your page. Once completed, just upload your page to one or all of your galleries and post a link to your layout in the comments section of this post before the next challenge goes live on September 15th.

ONE favorite page will be chosen as the winner to receive a 10 dollar coupon to the PRD store, but really everyone is a winner, as all other participants receive a 25% discount coupon to the Pink Reptile Designs TLP store. So all the more reason to join in on the fun, right?!

Wishing you tons of fun and Happy Scrappin'!
