Hi all - as promised, this month we'll do a layout swap again. :)

Here are the rules:

If you want to participate, sign up in this thread until Sunday, September 12th (midnight EST). - And if you don't know what to do until then, check out the Progressive Scrap (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=237) and all the other additional challenges and games for our birthday celebration! ;) )

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
* 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 (that's the drawback of hosting this challenge, I always know who will be working with my pics, LOL)

Deadline: September 30th

I'm really looking forward to doing this again this month, it was a lot of fun when we did it last time. I loved seeing how creative you all were scrapping pictures for others!

So - sign up and start getting those pics into my inbox! :DD

Please email or pm me with your pics - I will extend the deadline until Monday, Sept 13th midnight, because I won't be able to swap them before anyway (still tied up with the progressive until then, LOL). But if I haven't received your pics until then you cannot play along this month! :(

Hey, for some reason my Yahoo mail isn't working for this upload, no matter what I tried yesterday... I'm going to try pm-ing you with them, though I've never tried it before. If that doesn't work, I'll try Yahoo again...

Check your inboxes - I send you the pics :)

I can't wait to see what you all come up with - sometimes scrapping for somebody else is really hard, sometimes it's easy ...

Please, don't hesitate to contact me if you're having a problem with this! :)

Have fun!

For Michelle aka mrwagnerak

I had a hard time with this one - I wanted to get the balance of girls just right. This is my fourth layout and I hope Michelle likes it.

This is my third layout! Nobody is to see the first two drafts. I overthought every step. I wonder if it would have been easier if I knew Sally better? I didn't put any journalling or title, but left plenty of room for Sally to make this layout her own by filling in where I left off. I'm sure looking forward to several years from now, when I can look back and see these first few examples and how far I've come putting layouts together. Thank you for the opportunity to play with my stash of kits and my PSE8.

This is my layout for JimmyRose. Not knowing favorite colors and such, I made it simple, and tried to bring the photo's out. I hope you don't mind that I flipped one of your pictures around, and that you like the overall result.

Ooooh, I love what I see here!! :) Wonderful layouts!!!!

I'll have a closer look at the gallery tomorrow - this week has been awfully busy, I hope the weekend will be a little slower, LOL. I'm sorry for any delays sending out the hi-res layouts...I know there's at least one maybe two waiting in my inbox - they will be on their way tomorrow :)

SunshineTink

Oh, no rush! I thought the first was last friday, so you are doing better than me!! LOL Had all kinds of confusion around here, silly new phone, gotta figure out how to set reminders better!

Min

I did some catching up today, LOL ... you all did great jobs!! Scrapping for others can be very difficult, especially since you never know if your personal style will go with the other person's taste.

Please, do take a moment to go to the gallery and leave some love! :)

I'm aware, that two layouts are still missing - but since the two involved are competing in the Layout Artist Competition and the Final deadline is tomorrow.... I'm sure the layouts will be posted soon! :)

Ok, I finally got mine done - sorry for the delay! This was really a pleasure to make, and I hope the layout conveys the feelings associated with Pauli's photos (which I combined into one panoramic).
