View Full Version : Spotlight Challenge May 1st-31st

Welcome to the Gallery Spotlight Challenge for May! My first time hosting a challenge here at SAS!

This month's challenge runs from May 1st - 31st, so there's plenty of time to participate. Newbies and seasoned scrappers are all welcome to join in the fun!

This time around we're spotlighting the gallery of Kimberkatt (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&page=1&ppuser=810) Her gallery has almost 30 beautiful layouts to gain inspiration from to scraplift for this challenge. I chose her because she displays great ways to feature multiple photos in a layout.

The idea of a "scraplift" is not to make an exact copy of someone else's layout, but to simply use it to gain inspiration from. Please browse the gallery and choose one (or more!) layout to scraplift. It could be as simple as using the same color scheme, kit, or theme - or as detailed as matching the placement of all of the elements in the layout. The main thing to remember is to have fun with it! Take a moment to leave some comments while you're browsing her gallery.

Please post your layouts in the Gallery Spotlight Challenge Gallery , and post your link back here so we can all leave you some love! Please remember to credit the original layout when you post your layout by placing a link to the layout that you scraplifted in your credits. Got questions? Please don't hesitate to ask!

Here's what you get just for participating!

Oh, Wow! I'm so honored!! Thank you so much! :D

And thank you to all who have commented on my LO's, it is so appreciated! Somedays I need that little boost that some "luvin" gives me! :)

Can't wait to see some of the scraplifts... I really didn't think my LO's were good enough for such an honor! :o :)

Are you kidding? They're great! I'm having difficulty choosing which to scraplift! Congrats on being chosen.

OK, it was tough to choose and I think I actually got inspiration from all of kimberkatt's LOs but if I had to choose, the two that stood out the most for me were Zoom Zoom (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2103&ppuser=810) and Sandbox (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=1315&ppuser=810). I love how they are progression photos, telling a story of the event.

So here's mine: Summer Splash (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=13142)

Thanks for the great challenge!

Rose, your LO is awesome! I love it! Left you some love in the gallery ;)

You know, I find it difficult to scrap just ONE picture! I'm a "snap happy" picture taker, so I always have a TON of pics for one simple moment! LOL! I love how pictures can tell the story perfectly! Plus, I usually can't decide WHICH picture to scrap, so I just scrap them all! hehehe... :D

I certainly understand the difficulty in choosing just one to scrap! And, with those adorable children of yours, well, I guess you'll be scrapping for a good long time, LOL!

kimberkatt has so many wonderful LO's of her adorable little girl and other sweet babies. I decided to do one of my darling grandson. I loved Kimberkatt's photo of Trinity sleeping with the teddy! Teddy Bear (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=1007)

I had a hard time picking one layout to lift. This layout uses Trinity Anastasia.


05-18-2008, 02:28 PM
The posting bonus is great! (Barbara, if you crocheted the butterflies, I'd love the instructions for them!!)

I scraplifted the layout idea from kimberkatt’s “First Year” (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=1039&ppuser=810) and the background inspiration was from her “Love” (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=972&ppuser=810) to create "Kaline's First Half Year” (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=13891&ppuser=2088)

05-19-2008, 03:18 PM

Well I think I failed but here it is anyways. :o

I made this LO for the May Spotlight Challenge. KimberKatt's "Adorable Cousinns caught my eye. http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=13183&ppuser=810 I just love negative Strips. I like the way she blended the families together. Funny when I started this LO I was going to make it just like hers. he he I decided to use April Showers Mega Kit and my LO took on a life of its own.

Here is mine
