View Full Version : August Spotlight Challenge

Welcome to the Gallery Spotlight Challenge for August!!!

This month's challenge runs from August 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 amandavz (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?ppuser=2640&cat=500). Her gallery has 68 beautiful layouts to gain inspiration from to scraplift for this challenge.

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 LO credits. Got questions? Please don't hesitate to ask!

Here's what you get just for participating! All the Elements Posting Bonus!The more challenges you do, the more MEGA the kit you end up with!!!

Scraplift's are like potato chips - one is never enough - and I found so many LO's I loved in Amanda's gallery I had to do a couple more.

I was inspired by a pair: Garett's Celebration and Garett's Wedding Celebration: http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=18835&ppuser=2640 and http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=18833&ppuser=2640

Mine are Thanksgiving 1961 - Left and Right (and dontcha know they didn't come out that way after I uploaded them): http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=20477 and http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=20479
