August as an Adjective Finale!

Well, school has begun in our area so it's been appropriate that we broke out our dictionary for this month's Dreamweaver challenge..."AUGUST as an ADJECTIVE"! 

Merriam-Webster defines august as, "marked by majestic dignity or grandeur", with synonyms such as, "dignified, distinguished, imposing, portly, solemn, staid, and stately". Now, I don't know just how dignified and stately the Dream Team can become for an entire month, but we are all going to give it a try! How about trying along with us, and linking YOUR creations to the inlinkz tool below for a chance to win the wildest stencil design your little heart is screaming for. 

This week I'm in Cincinnati to celebrate my darling granddaughter's 2nd birthday! So I'm sharing a couple of oldies but goodies with you for this final posting of August. I think they fit the description of august beautifully, see what you think!

Here are my creations for this week:


LL374 - Long stem iris in Metallic Silver Embossing Paste
on white and silver shimmer papers

LL3010 - Tole Heart dry embossed with the Strie technique applied
LJ907 - Damask in background, also dry embossed and the Strie technique applied

See what the "B" team has deemed august this week:



See you in September!


Happy Creating,
Louise
