So the first thing that popped into my mind for a "challenge" using the 5000 facebook fan freebie was to make a layout that WASN'T winter themed! I personally always love seeing kits used for other reasons than what they were made for. When a kit is used in an out of the box way it shows us all new and different things we can do with the same kit over and over again. Then you can apply that to other kits in your digi stash! It makes you look at all kits differently, and helps you realize that the kits in your supply can be used in all sorts of new ways! So what a better way to challenge yourself than to take a winter themed kit and make a non winter layout with it!

I will pick 1 winner to receive the January Mega Winter Ice next Wednesday! So be sure you have your page loaded into the gallery and also here in this thread so I can see them!!

Here is the link to the special gallery for these special challenges: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1504-mini-lo-contestjanuary-2013.html

And just so you don't think I am too mean with my challenge, I will also make a non winter layout using the 5000 fan freebie kit too!!

Have fun! I can't wait to see you think out of the box!

I like those jobs and do often pages with seasonal kits for "other projects". So here is my result of "non-winter" with that wonderful give-away. Thanks there for:

Awesome, there may be three inches of snow outside my window right now but I'm feeling positively balmy with all these fantastic non-winter layouts. Gorgeous work girls

The longer I looked at the first layout the more I hated it. Here is a remake. I will try to remove the other one.
