View Full Version : October Spotlight Challenge

10-01-2008, 06:44 AM
Welcome to the Gallery Spotlight Challenge for October!!!

This month's challenge runs from October 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 Sharpli. (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=41) Her gallery has 179!!!! 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 (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=552), 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! Friendship Brew Posting Bonus! The more challenges you do, the more MEGA the kit you end up with!!!


And don't forget about the SAS-y Princess contest, when adding your layout to the gallery, be sure to also add it to the Princess gallery for the current month, it's that simple. The designers pick a winner each month and you get $20 worth of products, you just never know, your layout might be the winner for the month.

Wow, I'm honored to be chosen as the person to scraplift. Thanks, Barbara.

Very new to this so fingers crossed I got it right.
Thank you to Sharpli for the inspiration.

LOL - why not? I'm thinking though, that you should get the PB just for being in the 'spotlight'... what do you think Barbara?

10-03-2008, 07:32 PM
Barbara is way ahead of you! She's sent me the PB already. Big smiles from here.

Thanks again, Barbara.

10-03-2008, 08:00 PM
Ohhh, Sharpli, nice gallery. I'm gonna have to jump in on this one.
Thanks Barbara for offering another great PB!

Woo hoo great participation already this month, it's a great gallery to scraplift from! Linda and all gallery spotlightees get the PB every month, but are welcome to scraplift themselves if they wish, LOL!:)

And Merci Chamane!

I did this layout to showcase what you'll receive from Digimom if you participate in the challenge this month. Her posting bonus is lovely - especially the frames cluster. Talk about making it easy to do a layout.

My LO for the Spotlight ChallengeThe Zipper (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=25317&limit=recent) :eek:

Inspiration taken from Sharpli's Fracture (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=8731&ppuser=41) ...

10-10-2008, 03:51 PM
Yes, we've got to do layouts of the crummy times in our lives, don't we? Great job with the scraplift and I love the analogy of your sutures to the zipper - it really works well.

10-10-2008, 06:48 PM
When I saw this layout of Linda's, I just knew I had to scraplift it! It was perfect for my pic of my daughter! Thank you, Linda, for the great inspiration! :)

I saw kimberkatt's No Pictures (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=25337) where she scraplifted sharpli's No-No-No (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=16763&ppuser=41) and I immediately thought I have a picture like that. So here is my scraplift of sharpli's No-No-No (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=16763&ppuser=41). Mine is Oh No!! Charlie!

Hi!! :)

After you upload to the gallery, click on the layout you want to link to, then highlight & copy the URL link at the top of the page in the address bar. It's a good idea to have the forum & gallery open at the same time, in either 2 tabs or 2 windows, so you can go back & forth. Once you copy the link in the gallery, come back here to the forum and post a reply. Paste the link in your reply and it should convert it to a hyperlink (clickable) automatically once you submit!

If you are still having problems, just holler!! :D

I just love looking in Sharpli's gallery. She's so talented. Here's my layout.

I have done 2 Lo's I scraplifted Sharpli's Siblings as I had two similar photos of mine & my Hubby's Brothers & Sisters.


Hope the link has worked

10-16-2008, 10:01 PM
Yay!!! I think I have got it. Thank you Kimberkat!!!

Awesome guys!!!! PB's sent out to date.

Thanks Kim for helping out with that question...if anyone has a lot of trouble with the linking, you can just write out I scraplifted such &such layout from such&such, but linking is always better if you can. :)
