September 4 x 4 is up and ready to go!

Those of you that have been following my blog know that myself and three of my scrappy gal pals do what's called the "4x4 Challenge" every month. It's where we use the same 2 papers and the same 2 embellishments and see what we come up with. Well, it's now my turn to host this month! So without further adieu....
The four products we used this month were Simple Stories' Hello Sunshine paper, Cosmo Cricket Scraps Paper (all though Chrissy had other things in mind and oops, used the wrong one...we will allow it this time. LOL!), My Mind's Eye Soar Twine, and Webster's Pages Let's Celebrate Designer Threads.

Here are “The Rules”:
We must use the same four products: two papers and two embellishments.
- We can only use one of each sheet of paper.
- We can use unlimited basics (card stock, ribbon, alphas, mists, etc.) as long as the four main products are the focus.
- We cannot share our finished pages with each other until we are all done so that we do not influence each others’ design choices.
Make sure you stop by the other girl's blogs to see what wonderful inspiration they have created and to leave them some love! You can find Chrissy's here, Jess' here and Meg's here.

Here is my example:

Carrie and all, these are all great layouts. I'm going to a crop this weekend and plan to do a layout for this challenge. Love the four products used this month. I was able to find 3 of the 4 at our LSS. I will be working on this layout this weekend.
