AUGUST CHALLENGE

Our winner for July was LIZ HOCKING again. Congratulations!
Since I started this in mid 2012,this is the first time we have had the same winner twice.

Now on to our AUGUST CHALLENGE.

Our kind sponsor this month is Merrilyn Jackson from

And now here's your picture
The towers of the Grand masters in Rhodes Greece.
I have a friend who lives on Rhodes, so have been to this castle twice now.

The extra CRITERIA is CASTELLATION
It can be anywhere on your layout, but include in your description where it is.
Even if it is on your photo we would like it somewhere else as well to see your crafting skills.

Our guest designer this month is Mary Steinmetz and she has done 2 layouts for us
 
And here's the work from our DT.
 
JAN
I have used the gorgeous Heidi Swapp papers and banners as they matched this challenge perfectly 
 
DALE 

My inspiration came from the colours in the picture. I also chose the photos due to the interesting ceiling pattern and the fact that the building that houses the Museum looks a bit like a castle. My  castellation element is a Creative Memories rick rack at top left which I have had forever. I inked it using sepia ink and added my title stickers to it.
TRISH
My family went to China in 2012.

Lots of brickwork and turret type things on this page.


The old place my daughter was married in in Scotland ( Auchterarder House )had turrets aplenty.
You can see the building behind the couple my daughter and son in  law.
 
MOST IMPORTANT
Don't forget to apply for our D.T. this month.

This month's challenge is part of the application.
Good Luck!
