Welcome to our second installment of FREAKY FAST FRIDAY!!!

Did you enjoy it last week? Will you try it? Are you looking forward to next month's? Did you miss last weeks and don't even know what I'm talking about? happy Then, check back at last weeks post, Bringin' Back the Freaky! or just read on.

Here's the concept.  Sometimes, scrapbooking can be overwhelming...too many photographs, so many supplies, tools and techniques.  

Where do you begin?
May I suggest FREAKY FAST Formulas!
We are bringing back a challenge that was run at The ScrapRoom a few years back.  Here's how it works.  Each month, we will introduce a basic formula to use to get a page done.   They will be simple instructions to choose a base paper to start your page along with instructions to cut pattern papers to complete a page. It's that easy!! Tammy's kits are perfect too,...just grab a bag and you're ready to go!
Without further adieu.....The September 2015 Freaky Fast formula...
1. Cardstock or subtle patterned paper background 
2. 5 inch square patterned paper
3. 3 1/4 x5 patterned paper
4. 1 1/4 X 12 patterned paper
My layout has three large photos.  But, you may choose however many that you want to fit your wishes.
And here are the simple steps to completing the layout using the formula...
1. Collect pictures.
2. Cut your patterned paper to the dimensions stated above.
3. Push the paper around your cardstock till you achieve the look you want, or simply lift one of the layouts below!
4. Adhere and EMBELLISH! It is that easy!!

Each month, we will introduce a new formula.  On each, or most, Friday's following up to the next months Sneak Peeks, we will use that month's formula to show you a page by one of our designers. 

Brenda Ragsdale created a fantastic layout with the Basic Grey Barista line from the September 2015 DoubleShot kit.

To recap last week, we showed you two very different results from the formula.  Heather Robertson's layout took on a graphic look using the Echo Park Paper Wild Life line from the September 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

My layout took on a traditional look using Crate Paper Wonder from the September 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

What will yours look like?
