Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone had a safe & funtastic night... and is ready to jump in on another round of SAS-y challenges. Make sure you join in each & every challenge to get all the PB (posting bonus) goodies, because, together, the SAS-y designers have made a truly fantabulous kit this go around!

I cannot ooh & aah enough over all the Penguins in Love PB's created by our team. Just completely, totally adorable. Now, if all that gooey praising doesn't suck you, let's see if this months Freestyle Challenge, complete with a Freebie (http://www.4shared.com/file/78490656/6ec8c8ae/psd_penguinsinlove_freebie.html) starter, doesn't rev your engines.

This month I'm looking for out-of-the-box, creative, center-stage FRAMING. To be honest, LOL, I'm looking for ideas. I've got 6 kiddo's and never a good picture of all 6 together (someone is always, always making a goofy face. Kids.) So show me what you've got, frame 1, 2 or 6 pictures on a LO. Be as creative as you can get!

For those of you a little stumped (ahem, like me, ahem) I've got a little freebie to get you going. A 6 picture cluster frame that coordinates beautifully with my Penguins in Love PB that every single particpant will receive at the end of the month.

Well, here's mine:

I wasn't sure what you meant by creative so I dressed up plain frames. I thought I might do another one if that's okay? I noticed some forums say posting more than once is okay, so I wasn't sure if that's a no-no here??

Spooky! You are fast girl! I love the LO you did, I really like the multiple pics effect...

Toiny

Tex! I like the multiple framed pics on a page look. Yes, it totally qualifies as creative framing. I'm looking for anything other than just a frame on a page. So whether it's multiple framed pics, cluster frames, layered frames, frames missing the picture, or blended effects... it all works!

Keep 'em coming guys!

I did one as well, I layered my frames using mostly the PB kit:

Yikes - six kids - how do you find time to scrap, much less design . . . LOVED that six-part frame you made and had to use it:

Woooooooohooooooooooo! Some simply fabulous LO's ladies! Y'all are giving me some excellent inspiration. It's amazing the different turns people take when given the same challenge. That's one of the things I'm really loving about these challenges!

Keep 'em coming!!!

Thanks for the compliment! I just saw Jan use it for one photo... cool effect. I made it so that all 6 of my kids would look good on one page, LOL, but now I'm looking for the perfect pic to copy her idea.

Again, keep it up ladies! I'm loving the end results!!! I've got a ton of ideas. So little time, so much to scrap...

Here is Sweethearts (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=31016). It's not quite the lo I envisioned when I read this challenge. I wanted to do this lo as an out of bounds lo... but the photos just wouldn't work the way I wanted them to.

You did wonderful! Excellent job on the LO, I love, love the colors you used. Absolutely it qualifies. Welcome aboard. This is a lovely group & a great place to learn. The challenges especially help you try new things, as well as build your scrappin' stash.

As part of the challenge we do ask that you post them in the gallery associated with each challenge. Don't worry! Galleries are still free and relatively easy to use. Let me know if you have any problems. The gallery for the freestyle challenge can be found here:

Again, welcome! And I will pm you the Posting Bonus.

The layout turned out pretty cool... I've had a hard time with the out-of-bounds stuff as well. I always wind up doing something I'm more comfortable with. Let me know if you get one done, I'd love to see it!

I'll pm you your Posting Bonus, thank you for participating in my challenge!

I had to do it differently because I have Seven little "stars" to scrap. This is first time I have used the Star Frame I made.

Hello!

I'm so excited about this one. I found the perfect kit that has a box in it that I used like a keepsake box for my cherished photos.

I hope I didn't mess up! 1, 2 or 6, was that absolute? I am usually faced with this problem in 3s! Last year's heritage project included switching photos just before uploading for printing because I realized that one picture of my cousin's 3 kids, her younger son was picking his nose! It was one of the ones my Aunt flagged as a "must use" but I made an executive decision!

In 2006, it was three cats...
