Week 210: DIZZY


It's time for a new cue word!  This time of year, many parents are becoming dizzy with all the preparations needed for the beginning of a new school year!  Let's fill the gallery with dizziness this week!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Uniko Studio is returning as our wonderful sponsor this week and this week's winner will receive a £15 eGift Certificate to the online store!  This Thursday, August 11, Uniko Studio will be having a revisited blog hop, so be sure and bop on over to hop along!  There will be a giveaway, so don't miss your chance to win!

Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
