View Full Version : August 2008 - My SAS-y Self Challenge

08-01-2008, 10:56 AM
Ready for a new topic for August? You have to really put your thinking cap on for this one.

TOPIC: What 5 items can you not live without? Let's use objects, not people (i.e. "family") and see what we come up with!

The challenge will run from August 1-30. Please use a kit from the SAS-y store (or any freebie by an SAS designer) to create your layout, post to the My SAS-y Self gallery (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=596), and come back to this forum to post a link to the gallery so we can all ooh-and-aah over what you made!

This month's posting bonus kit is called "All The Elements" because it's a sampling of colors from all Earth's elements - sea, sky, grass, etc. Here's my contribution and the posting bonus for this challenge:


I'm excited to read about all the things that are important to your everyday lives. You can post to the gallery anytime between now and the end of August. Have fun!

What a fun challenge! I have LOTS of things I can't do without. Deciding which to use will be the hard part!

Do pets count as objects (allowed to use) or people (not allowed to use)??

Here are my 5 Gotta Have It Items :)

Yes, you can use pets. I'm not a "stickler" for the rules... I just know everyone would have put down their spouses and children... so I wanted to look a bit beyond that. We already know we can't live without our families, right? :)

This is the first time I've done this particular challenge... I guess I'm just shy. :o I wasn't sure what to do at first so I'm glad there were others before me to give me some inspiration! Thanks everyone. :D
