Thanks, Kimberly! What an awesome presentation of the Challenge! I am looking forward to seeing what participants do with this little mini!

10-02-2012, 12:08 PM
Thanks Karen! <3

Guys, I've added a little blurb to the top post... there have been some concerns about purchasing the Featured Kits and what happens if you're the winner... if you purchase the Featured Kit while it's on sale, during the challenge, and then end up being the Winner, we can always make a replacement coupon for you! We'd hate for you guys to miss out on the sale prices, who doesn't love a sale?!! So, rest assured, you can purchase without worry! ;) Thanks all!

QUESTION!! When you say we can use a template or word art...does that mean from any source or does it need to be a template or word art from The Studio?

Hello, I'm new in the forum. My name is Felis and Snickerdoodle is one of my favorite designers and "Scarecrow Wannabe" is my totally favorite kit! So when Karen said that this month she offers 2 challenge I decide to support her! My scrapbook is ready from yesterday and I checked probably hundred times do I already have the right to publish, so please admin to excuse me! :((

Jill, what a riot your husband must be! Love the layout! You are a master at gorgeous clustering!

Makeyesup.. what a spooky character! Great extraction, and I like how the crow is looking on. Neat title font too!

Diane, this is lovely! I love the use of the papers, and your clustering is gorgeous. How imaginative to have your text run down the center of the paper like that. Really lovely page!!

HI Carol! Boy, your gkids are sure growing up! How cute that you have the crow holding the branch like that, and looking into the picture. Love the prose you used, and the paper stacking adds extra interest!

Dona, What a lovely layout. I like how you have created the square out of the papers, love the clustering on your photo, and what a heat way to do your journaling! Very imaginative and a very special page! Thank you!

Beautifully done by everyone! Thank you for joining in! I LOVE Fall, and your Layouts are just adding to my joy! Seriously!!

10-05-2012, 05:28 PM
These are awesome LO's. Congratulations Karen on being the featured designer.

I was super happy to see this frame--I have this frame used to frame some tintypes in my family. I was thinking of making a png of it for some tintypes that don't have frames. Do you know the time period this frame was used on tintypes. Love this add on for obvious reasons. <3

10-16-2012, 07:22 PM
Thank you ceefl0wer, Kim, amsangel, Judy, Lainey, withnuts, and zanthia for your layouts! I was pleasantly surprised to see even more here when I returned today!

Wyospring – I’m not very good at remembering the years of different time periods; I would just refer to it as “vintage.”

Thank you to EVERYONE for the amazing layouts you all contributed! It was really interesting and fun for me to see all of the different layouts, themes, perspectives that you all brought to the table. It just proves that we all are unique, with our own styles and talents.

You all made my time as the Featured Designed a delightful experience. I appreciate all of your kind comments, and I value the time that you spent creating these amazing pages!

Cute and adorable add-on, TYVM.
