View Full Version : Freestyle Challenge for March '08

03-02-2008, 06:54 PM
Greetings, Dear Friends ~
March holds a very special place in my heart and always has, probably because it's the time when the season starts slowly changing into its new and fresh looks and colors.

More things have already been said about Spring than I care to enumerate here, so instead, why not just get right down to the nitty-gritty!
When there is something new in our hearts, that can only mean one thing: it's time to CELEBRATE!!

This month, my posting bonus for this challenge is filled with softness and whimsy... here it is:


If you think there's not much to celebrate about March, then perhaps you can tell us, show us, what it is you celebrate. No matter the occasion, no matter who is involved, I would like to see 'how you celebrate' it and, one more thing, since green will start to show up soon in Nature, you have to use that color, too!

1) What and how do you celebrate a special occasion?
2) Please use the color green in your layout
3) Post it in the Freestyle Challenge Gallery
4) Leave us a note here so I can run over and see your celebration
5) For this month, you can use any item from any designer... no restrictions!
5) Everything else is up to your unique, Free Style!

Enjoy creating your Freestyle page and have fun!

Ok, I know this is not the 'norm' sort of celebration but I am submitting my lo of my guy, Jay because there is not a day goes by when I don't celebrate my good fortune in meeting this wonderful man. And wow, those eyes, lol, they light me up.

Not a celebration like a birthday or Easter or Christmas or something like that, but rather
Celebrate Spring! (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=9798&limit=recent)

When Stella says that in the Freestyle Challenge we can use "any item from any designer," does that mean the designer does not have to be a SAS designer?

03-12-2008, 11:06 PM
that is what Stella said! LOL !! Any element/page from any designer, anywhere!
It's a Freestyle free-for-all this month... so go ahead, make your page!

Thank you, Stella. I'm new to this site, so am trying to get things figured out.

Loved your layout!! Cute blue eyes that she has!
I'd love to know who the designer is, though, for the papers/elements, and what is that font? It's nice to give credit to the person/s who designed the items in your layouts ~ even if the designer is you!! :D

Thanks again, expect pm soon!

All your layouts are great examples of what we celebrate that is near and dear to our hearts.
~ I yearned to be with you where you can actually see your yard, and not snow...
~ My mouth watered at that nice pot of crawfish in Louisiana...
~ I shivered at that view of Pikes Peak and it made me lonesome for North America...
~ More tugs-at-my-heart from those bright yellow flowers and those *****-willows!
So you all stirred up my feelings with your beautiful submissions, and I want to thank you sincerely. After all, what is life if you can't feel, right?
Expect my pm with your little gift! and..
thank you again

Here's my LO! Our family loves to celebrate birthdays because 6 times a year we splurge and buy Dairy Queen ice cream cakes.

Thanks for the challenge!

My "Celebration" that I chose to scrap was the cruise my parents took me on after I graduated college. :)

I'm so sorry it took me longer than I anticipated to get back here.. internet problems!

Expect a little giftie in your PM box in a few minutes ~ a little thanks for your beautiful, celebrating layouts.

I love them all ~ they made my heart sing... :D
