Now on to our AUGUST Farm Fresh Challenge. This month our challenge is an fun one:


Ok, ya'll, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown with this challenge. So if *I* can do it, I'm counting on ALL of you to join in this month!!! I actually had another idea in mind for a scene but couldn't find the stamp set I wanted to use for it. PLEASE tell me I'm not alone in losing stamp sets out of the blue like that. Anyway, so if I find it before the month ends, I PROMISE to make that a reality for ya! So in my panic to come up with something I was chatting with Rosemary and she said something about creating a scene in a polaroid like picture so I didn't have to think of or color an entire scene card. BRILLIANT, right?! So, make your scenes small - think of looking into a window or looking out a window for your scene. Don't think you have to do a whole card but you totally can if you want - those are amazing and I LOVE them. So, once I thought about the polaroid, I thought, I HAS to be a selfie. I mean, who doesn't love a good selfie scene?! I started by stamping my Anya, then masked her and stamped the scene behind her masking some of the buildings and adding the trees. Then all I had to do was color! So cute. I even filmed the process for you - except creating my card which I just did with die cutting some colorful pattern paper and adding my little scene with some foam dots and a clip.

**Ps. I will have a video up in the morning on my YouTube channel showing you how I created this cute little scene!**

 Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to read the rules and link up your card.
