View Full Version : April 2010 Challenge

Oooh - I'm so late this month - sorry about that. I've had some health issues that kept me away from my pc for way too long... it's getting better now so I hope I can be around more again!

It's finally getting spring over here and I love, love, love all the flowers in my garden - my eyes are so hungry for color after all that white and gray of winter. So this month is going to be all about flowers (or leaves if you live on the other half of the Earth and don't feel like spring right now ;) )!

Use at least 20 flowers on your page (not too hard if you just use them as a frame, ribbon or cluster), but (and there has to be a "but", I have a reputation to maintain, ROFL) they all should be different. Vary size, color, shape, use different styles on them, clip papers to them....

For those of you who want to go "extra": Make those flowers yourself! Doodle them, combine different shapes (circles, ovals... - not flower shapes) then color them in and add bevels and other styles!

You all did fantastic last month - so I'm really looking forward to see your beautiful creations for this month!:((

Upload your layout to the Freestyle Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=630), come back here and leave a link to it!

Above all: HAVE FUN!

Hee hee, I'm so excited about this, but I'm going to have to do some searching, photographing, and extracting, can't wait to show you my idea...!
Thanks, Min!

This challenge had me stumped for awhile, but I finally came up with a layout for it. You wanted flowers, you got flowers. Some are from LightningBug Creations kits, others are extractions by me, and a couple are handpainted by moi. I even composed a quick little poem for the layout. Here is FlowerBasket (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=56146&title=flower-basket&cat=630)

Well, I was planning on following instructions to the "t" and taking the extra challenge of extracting 20 flowers for my LO, but as the end of the month approaches, reality sets in that it won't be happening this time. But I am SO glad you did this challenge, I never would have thought to use 20 flowers in a layout for my son. I LOVE what I came up with, and actually planned on putting it in LOTW, but can't... you'll see why when you read my credits!
Thanks again for the great challenge, Min, I look forward to next month's!
