Default Surprise Me Border Challenge

Sometimes when I create a layout, I want the photograph to be the only thing on the page, except perhaps for a date and/or very little text. Yet at the same time, I want some added interest. I have found that borders really come in handy when I find myself in this spot! However, sometimes a more traditional scrapbook page, featuring any number of photos, can be enhanced with the use of a border. These are the concepts that the Border Challenge is based upon. No matter what type of scrapbook page you create, to participate in the Surprise Me! Border Challenge you must .... well... create a border. Each month different challenges will be offered to you........ Here is what I have in mind for October.

We have been creating borders anywhere on our page, (side, bottom, top/bottom) depending upon... our preference, where we thought it fit best on a particular page, or for any number of reasons. This month I thought it would be fun for us to create a page with a TOP border. We've seen a lot of different border styles, but not that many "top only" borders... so let's give it a try!

Here is a sample of what I mean... this sample is from my Sporty Sass Stacked Papers.



Challenge Requirements:
1. Create a page layout which utilizes a TOP Border.
2. You may use any kit that you like. Please be sure to credit the designer.
3. Post your layout in the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery.
4. Come back and post your preview and a link to your gallery image in this thread.

What do you earn by participating? Well, theStudio offers a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month. So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off every purchase made next month! No coupons are required. The discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. How easy is that? And YES, this is on top of any sales prices too.

I look forward to seeing your imagination at work!
