View Full Version : December Spotlight Challenge

Welcome to the Gallery Spotlight Challenge for December!!!

This month's challenge runs from December 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 charliesnana (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=2551). Her gallery has 178!!!! 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! Happy Ho-Ho Posting Bonus! The more challenges you do, the more MEGA the kit you end up with!!! This month our posting bonuses are larger than normal, so you'll be getting a very MEGA mega kit if you do all or most of the challenges!


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 if you've used all SAS-y Designer's products, 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! Thank you so much, Barbara, for choosing my gallery to spotlight. Can hardly wait to see the layouts.

Love what you did with yours, Kate.

Oh no! This is WAY too hard. With all the wonderful layouts and the shelties, cows and T-ball I just can't decide. :confused: I may have to do more than one.

I finally narrowed it down to just one layout to scraplift so here it is:

I was inspired by the dog theme and basic design of this Jackson layout by Charliesnana:

This was too fun. I may have to do another one this month.

Well it was simple for me as soon as I saw that Great Template from the SAS Bday Bash. I knew exactly what Photo to use as it has been sitting in my wanna use pic folder staring at me. LOL Of Course I had her Template in my computer so I seized the moment scaled it down to 8x8 in a snap and Popped open Mitsybelles Boyish Stuff and Whipped this one out in record time! Thanks Charlies Nanna for this easy to use template :D

My lo Festival of Trees 2 (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=29435) started out as a scraplift of charliesnana's Wildcat Cheerleader (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=28265&ppuser=2551). I enlarged the elements and photos a bit.
