Would you like to take a closer look? First up is the kit. This week's kit is called Oceanside and it is the perfect kit for all those summer at the beach type photos. I really love the papers in this kit and the cute little seashell elements. I love the earthly color palatte in this kit and this kit really invokes a feeling of being at the beach.
To go along with the kit, we are putting an alpha up for only $2 as well. It is called Sand In The Bottle and it is the perfect alpha to compliment Oceanside. I really love the look of this alpha. I like that the sand isn't quite even in each letter and that the letters actually do look like bottles.
Here's some inspiration:
All these layouts and the kit make me want to head to the nearest beach (which for me would require a days drive or so to another state), just so I can have pictures to put this kit and alpha to use. Even if you don't currently have any beach type photos, plan ahead and grab Oceanside and Sand In The Bottle alpha while they're each only $2. It only lasts one day.

For me, that style is multiple photos and journaling on almost every single layout I do. I also like to scrap chronologically, which is something not a whole lot of scrappers do these days.
Our goal for this Masters Monday is for each of you to challenge yourselves. What aspect of scrapbooking is something that you absolutely love, but you are unsure or scared to do? For me, there's a few.
Number one has always been going out of my comfort zone and scrapping non-chronologically. Since joining Trixie CT, this has been something I've been able to overcome somewhat. (I'm still adamantly scrapping old photos chronologically.) Here's just a couple examples:
The real challenge for me that I took on this week, however, is scrapping without photos! I've seen a lot of people who are able to accomplish this and I'm always amazed. I'm such a visual person that scrapping without photos seems like it's breaking a major rule of scrapbooking. (It's not and there's no real rules in scrapbooking.)
So I've been thinking about this layout for a few days. I wanted to know exactly where I was going to go with this layout before I even began. Then I got to work and made sure I included all I wanted to include. It was super hard to resist the urge to put a photo in there somewhere, but I think it works great without it and I'm glad I challenged myself.
Now go get out of your comfort zone and try something you've always been scared to try. Then come share your work with us in the gallery. I'm anxious to see what you guys are afraid to try.

The colour palette, with its blues, greens, browns and bronzes, is great for those masculine members of the family but can easily adapt to use for anybody and I don't think it would be too much of a stretch to use the kit for other special occasions either. What have our Stars done will all of this awesomeness? Well, let's have a look!
And from Laina
And last but not least, from Shauna
They're all about birthdays but they're all unique. We'd love to see what YOU do with this amazing kit...

Well I'll tell you. Today we have Rise To It for $2 as well as the Bonus Alpha for Rise To It.
Rise To It is such a wonderful kit. I love the worn feel to the kit as well as all the wordart and strips that are included. There are so many possibilities with this kit.
The Bonus Alpha is a nice touch. I love that they are bubbles with a little bit of shine to them. Makes for the perfect contrast with the worn look of the kit.
If the preview of the kit and bonus alpha aren't enough to convince you, let's take a look at what our Stars have done with it.
Now if those don't convince you to grab this kit, I don't know what will. Go ahead and get Rise To It and the Bonus Alpha today, while they're only $2. Then remember to come share your work with us in the gallery.
