No, A4 is absolutely acceptable! After discussion we're going to revise the requirement to 8x8in or larger in order to accommodate all of our international family plus those that do not normally work in 12x12. We want to see your creativity... not limit it!

Hope you'll join us! 8D

Yay!! Count me in!
I'm expecting Baby #3 to join our family some time in the next couple weeks, so if I'm in the hospital, I'm not sure how I'll get the "secret ingredient" part accomplished, but I'm game to try!!!:DD

does typography only include loaded fonts, or does it include design alphas too?

Loaded fonts only to fulfill the typography part of this challenge, please.

There are lots of amazing free font resources out there! Here are three of our faves:

Just finished and uploaded mine. It's A4 size as my printer can't cope with anything larger than that. Also, the description of what I did misses out the fact that I made the photo frames from one of the papers in the kit. Is it possible to go back and edit this as I just can't see how/where I can do this (probably because I need to clean my glasses!)

Thanks again to Toiny for the beautiful kit "Early Morning Delight"

Okay I know I"m tired, and I'm headed to bed... but what exactly do you mean by "(1) creative use of typography (font)" do you mean doing something unexpected with a font? Or just using a creative font with the layout and having some fun with the fonts that can be installed on the computer?

Thanks for the clarification for this tired mind....

Yes, something more unexpected than simply typing a line of text. I don't want to be too specific or set a lot of limits...

The edit link is a bit hard to find. When you're viewing your layout in the gallery look for the photo options link in the upper right. The edit option is hiding in there ;)

Thanks, I thought so but I wanted to make sure my tired mind wasn't making it harder than it should be. :l

Here is mine...I need help with how to present(photo/scan). I put 2 different views in the gallery, one showing a lot more shadows (taken in the sun). I used digital photo and background, printed font on border as well as printed out palm tree, birds and sun and cut them out. I used Glue Dots on the sun and border, glitter on the birds and sun. I cut out the palm leaves and layered them over a ribbon that I creased and added tiny buttons. I used beach glass on the corner of the border

Here is my entry. This was a fun challenge. I am sure this layout will end up as a decoration for my daughter's room, she loves giraffes :)

I got mine done, and have scanned it into my husband's computer, but I can't figure out how to use the new program he got that's supposed to share our files...! It's almost midnight here, and I'm exhausted; I'm hoping you'll accept it if I get it in tomorrow morning my time (Ireland). If not, thanks anyway, I've learned alot from this project, even though I kept my ambitions minimal for my first try!
