Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_392&zenid=5014ac43922d63d91a92462396a37373). It was such a great response to my first challenge here at the Studio that I thought "let's keep a good thing going". So for the month of August, I have another mini for you for the LESS IS MORE challenge.

I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called IN MY FRIEND'S EYES. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit, leaving nothing out. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers. You can add journaling text or a title, but nothing more. 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/?njvf1kh664o5f23).

Here's a preview of the mini:

What about pictures?

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. You can use as many photos as you want, if that's what you mean.

Cathy - I just love your page. You've done so much with so little and I just love your journaling. That and the photo are the real guts of the page. How very cool that you and Tammy got to meet Jayne! I'm totally jealous, and I'm sure she was a nice distraction at a terrible time in your lives. Super LO!

I used all the elements and papers in their original colors and also recolored some. I also blended papers and did an extraction from the pink paper for the wings. Hope that meets the definition of just being creative. It was fun. thanks

08-09-2012, 08:36 AM
Oh this is so cute, I can't wait to play with it!

08-09-2012, 12:27 PM
Thank you for the great kit. I liked it even more after working with it. Here is my layout:

Girls - you are really knocking it out of the park this month! Love all these LOs - so diverse and so creative. I've been absent the last couple of days - it was my daughter's birthday and you know how your kids can take up a bit of your time!

Left you all some love in the gallery. Thanks so much for playing along - I'm loving them all!

Wowzers ladies! I'm totally flabbergasted at all the wonderful and diverse LOs! You are really rocking this challenge. I've been away on holidays for a week, so I'm off to the gallery to leave you all some love - much easier than doing it here being how I'm behind.

Way to go everyone!

Saw your page in the gallery Janelle - you created a wonderful page. Love the "friends" photo and the brushwork you did between the two papers is a great touch! Well done!

The layouts this month are just terrific. And they add so much beautiful color to the Gallery. I am always astonished at the variations in layouts using the same elements and papers. Such talent!

My offering this month is Simple Flowers, and I have kept the layout fairly simple also.

Thanks so much......yea I changed it to a black and white as I thought it looked better as well between her JROTC uniform and his red cap and gown it was a hue of colors and I am OCD about how things look just one of my quirks:DD lol....
