End of summer

The challenge this week at Lasting Memories layout challenges is summers end. This year my summer has ended with the opening of a new store in Charlotte. I was able to get my hands on some pictures of the store before the product was brought in. It will NEVER be this neat and tidy again. I was able to use a sketch from Sketch Savvy. If you have never been there you should definitely check it out. One of my go to sites when I hit a wall.

This layout also qualifies for:
Clear It Out Challenges: inspiration (create a project based on something that inspires you-a card, a person, a place, anything)- My inspiration was work (I work at Michael's, how can I not be inspired?)
ColourQ: Crumb Cake, Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, White
