Hello Ladies! Are you ready for another one?!!?! I've got a fantabulous challenge for you this month. I'm in the mood for y'all to shine! Literally shine.

Add some sparkle. Add some glitter. Add that shine to those layouts. For those of you saddled with all boys (I've got 5 of my own, plus the DH), or even all boy furbabies, this month is the month for layouts showing off you. You and your sparkly, shiny, glittery, girly side :p.

To help you out, I've got this little freebie for you:

http://stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=32&stc=1&d=1235971006
And, to help you out even more, I've moved sharing my freebies from 4shared to box.net. Too many rumors on 4shared re: viruses. So box.net it is! Click here (http://www.box.net/shared/bh9rklf4ff) to get it.

Wanna know what you are participating for? Here's my PB for any & all participants in this months Freestyle Challenge:

Pretty freebie and pb! Alright! I can take part this month again! You'll have to add your Funny Valentine to the store so I can get it... I couldn't figure out how to do styles last month.

Hi,
I see 2 files attached for preview but when I click on them I get a message that I don't have privlege to do that. So can't see bonus. Cute little girl mini to work with. I assume we can add to it??

Hi! The previews are just previews, just for viewing nothing to be done w/them. The girly, sparkly mini is for you to use now to help get you started on your sparkly, shiny girly LO. You don't have to use it but you are free to use it.

Click here (http://www.box.net/shared/bh9rklf4ff) to get it.

HTH's!

*blush* I remember, now, having trouble w/people seeing the previews when I attached them. Can you see them now? I've uploaded them via photobucket.... we'll blame it on the painkillers, 'k?

Gorgeous starter kit and PB! Thanks for the kits and for fixing it so we could all see the previews instead of those red x's. I almost never manage to do a layout without mixing kits, but I stuck strictly to the gorgeous pink starter kit this time. And I'm quite sure I will be using the various pieces over and over. Here's my layout, Sparkling Eyes (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=33528).

Well it usually takes a challenges to get me to use Bling LOL
So this time place the diamond frame on top of the frame on the QP I started with. Of Course i had to use the Sparkly Butterfly and a dash of falling Glitter. There was plenty of Bling to choose from the kit I used called For Little Girls Sugar & Spice by Mitsybelle

Wow! There are some amazing, and totally sparkly, LO's in the gallery! I love seeing how everyone puts a different spin on (mostly) the same set of elements. Very, very cool.

I've PM'd the PB to everyone to date, please let me know if you did not receive yours or are having an issue. Thank you all for "playing" with me this month!

Hi everyone! I'm new at this and can't seem to figure out how to upload my LO to the gallery so I finally used Photobucket. Hopefully if you click the link you'll see my page.
I love the PB that is offered! Thanks!

Hi, I have just posted my first layout in this gallery here:
http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=34166&limit=recent.
I am not sure how to put a clickable link here nor a preview. I will try to find the FAQs for the gallery and may put another post with the relevant stuff.

I have been fiddling with blending and feathering and didn't quite get the effect I really wanted but I guess I keep working at it.
