Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_392). I've just celebrated my first month here at the Studio and thought it was time to jump in with a little challenge and get to know some of the talented members here. This month, I have a new challenge called LESS IS MORE.

I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called BEACH BLISS. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers, add text or a title or whatever. You can duplicate items and use them over again. Be creative!

Post your LO here in the "Less is More (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1389--91less-is-more-92-challenge-gallery.html)" gallery and then link your LO back here in this thread.

Download the mini kit HERE (http://www.mediafire.com/?uf7kd0k6gifkxgq).

Here's a preview of the mini:

And my LO:

With summer here now I'm sure you've got some photos in your stash to use with this challenge. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Cheers,
Darlene

What a beautiful mini... just got through scanning in some photos of when we lived on the water on Padre Island [outside of Corpus Christi]. Thanks for the mini... now to get busy with the challenge.

Saw your LO in the gallery - how fabulous! Do you still have the boat? I love the water myself, so was totally jealous when I saw this page. Super looking! Thanks for participating.

No, we moved from Padre Island 12 years ago and sold the boat. << sigh >> The move was prompted due to my arthritis getting bad. We now are in a much drier place and I am much improved. I do miss living right on the water but don't miss the hurricanes, etc we had to deal with. I have our wonderful memories of living there... so it works out.

I totally understand - it's about health first. And with the way hurricanes have been the last decade or so - I'm sure you don't miss those. But I'm sure there's lots of things you enjoy where you are now - sounds like it!

My grandpup Callie loves the beach, playing in the surf, racing up the sand and chasing beach birds.

Patty - I always love what you do! I've seen such a progression in your pages, you're really coming into your own girl! Love the separation of papers using the log!

Brenda - yours is just amazing. You've created such energy the way you've used the waves and swirls - just like a rolling ocean! Well done!

And JEEPDVIA - Who wouldn't want to be strolling those shores? Sweet LO & really cute photo!

I want to thank you all so much for participating in my FIRST challenge at The Studio. I truly appreciate it and I just loved looking at all your creations.

Look for another challenge in August - it will be a little bit after the start of the month, once I clean up my plate a little!
