Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works. I'm hoping you all enjoyed the long weekend and for those of you with kids I'm sure most of them are back in school next week. And so the routine changes! I thought I'd wait a few days to post this challenge - with the long weekend, the Birthday Bash here and Designer and Layout contests I figured everyone was already off to a running start this month. So for September, 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 LEAVING THE NEST. 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/?ox5fdap7dvc7ajr).

Here's a preview of the mini:

Just perused the gallery again and left you all some love in there! Once again, it blows me away how so many LOs can be done so differently with a tiny little mini. Way to be creative everyone!

Remember, just because it's called leaving the nest, it can be taken in many ways, so don't let the name of the mini stop you. It can be leaving a job, leaving sleeping in a crib and advancing to a bed, moving out of your parents house, or starting your first day of school and leaving your parents for a few hours! Stretch your imagination and just do whatever the heck enters your mind!

Loving it all so far!

Priya - I'm glad that got all sorted out. It may have been that a "newbie" joining the studio has to make a minimum amount of posts (could be 10) before things will appear. Looks like you're happening now! Yeah! Commented on your great page in the gallery.

I masked & layered the clouded blue page with the patterned page. I took a frame of mine & layered it with the red paper & colored it orange to make the sun. I added a chiseled edge to make the red paper background stand out as a frame. I painted the grass hill, in which the tree stands on. I believe the rest of the elements on the page are pretty obvious to those who are observant.

Jumping in here at the very last minute to participate. I chose to feature my son's wedding photos since he was my last to "leave the nest". I used everything and only recolored one element. Thanks it was fun using the mini.
