This month we'll do a layout swap (thanks to debbyann73 for suggesting this:(( )

The rules:

If you want to participate, sign up in this thread until Sunday, June 13th (midnight EST).

Also, pm or email (mailofmin at gmail dot com) me 1-3 photos and some info (who, what, where, when) you would like to have included in the layout.

I'll mix everybody up and send out the pics.

Then you scrap a layout with the pic and info you got from me and do the following:

post it in the Freestyle Challenge gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=630)
leave a link to it here in this thread
mail me a flattened full resolution (300dpi) .jpg file of the layout that I will forward to the owner of the pic
wonder who will be doing your layout ;)

Deadline: June 30th

Any questions or suggestions?

Let's get going!

(I'm wondering already who will end up doing a layout for me... oh, wait, I'm the one to mix everybody up, so I will know :l LOL)

Soooooo - we have 10 particpants this month, including myself. I matched everyone up and will be sending out the emails shortly.

In your email you'll find some pics (or a download link) and a little bit about the who and what. Please create a layout for the person who owns the pics (no, it's not the same person who will be scrapping your pictures, LOL).

Post the layout in the Freestyle Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=630),
link to it here, in this thread and
email me with a flattened, high resolution (300 dpi) .jpg file of your layout. Please, make sure your sending out the flattened version, not a layered one because we do not want to break the copyrights!


I will pass on the layouts to the owner of the pics (I don't want to pass along email adresses because I'm not sure everybody is comfortable with this.)

Deadline for the layout is June, 30th

Any questions?

Hope you have a lot of fun!

BTW - I love the pics I get to scrap :l ...

Min

Got it - thanks! Hmmm.... now to go through my stash... Does it have to be SAS/DSS?

Min

hmm - that would certainly be nice, LOL, but it's not mandatory

Simona - I'm curious to see what you'll come up with, it would have been a challenge for me, too, because it's different from what I scrap mostly, as well. I should try it sometime, though - have a lot of this kind of pics myself, LOL.

Hm - maybe I should do a pic swap again and get somebody else to do them for me ROFL

Min
06-17-2010, 01:02 AM
Woohoo - Diane, you're first! Great job and a beautiful layout!

I got your high-res file, too, and will forward it to Debby.

(That's one person everybody else can scratch from their list of suspects, LOL)

And here's my challenging layout, SALLY, I hope you'll like it! I was unsure if changing the pics to sepia colour, but in the end I left them black and white so they pop out the page (or so I hope).

OH MY GOODNESS! The page is quite lovely. I would never have come up with that layout. Thank you so very much!

I've made one layout of the photos I've received, but am uncertain about it. Hope to get things done and up in the next day or two.

Again, thank you for the lovely layout!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly, I had such a great time doing this layout. I did work in a couple of flowers for you, lol. I hope you like it. If I didn't get the town etc. correct let me know, I saved it as a PSD so I can change it.
Thanks Min for coordinating all of this. It is great to see our pages the way others would do them.

That's great, thanks so much! Can you believe my son just saw it and said, "Why did she put flowers on?!" LOL!?! I told him it's OK, we're in a garden! "oh, ok... could she tell?"
I think it's perfect. Yay, Diane!

Simona, here are a couple of layouts for you. I started the first one (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/630/medium/theStudio-june-freestyle_challenge1.jpg) and then decided I really wanted to show off the picture with all the arches over the walkway, so I did a second layout (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/630/medium/theStudio-june-freestyle_challenge2.jpg).

I hope you like one of them. I had fun doing them and enjoyed the medieval style of the city too.

lightmistress
06-25-2010, 01:46 AM
Oh Babette, I love them! I definitely think they both will go printed into my cruise album!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I love what you did with the background in LO1. I think you took it from a part of a wall picture, it's an idea I had not and it's brilliant.
I also love that arches photo, it's one of my favourites, maybe because both my boyfriend and I really love medieval architecture so this was like a fantasy world for us.
Again, thank you, I am really happy, plus I had two LOs, whoo-hoo! Feeling like a baby opening Christmas presents!

Ooooh, these layouts are fabulous!!! Thanks to you all for putting so much thought and effort in creating those wonderful layouts for each other!!!

Ummm - mine will be done on Monday or Tuesday, for the last two weeks things were a little more chaotic than usual (competitions, broken appliances, you really don't want to know the details, LOL) - and this weekend, as you might know from the newsletter, Toiny and her family are coming to visit with us, so I'm pretty sure I won't scrap for the next 3 days, LOL. But I haven't forgotten and will do it!! :)

I'm done, LOL - I had Lynette's wonderful pics of her cute little girl... since I'm so late, you probably figured out it was me, LOL - hope you like it:

I'd love to see you all in July's Freestyle Challenge - I just posted the rules and realized too late what they mean for me, LOL - maybe I should think about that earlier next time, ROFL
