Default July 2012 - Less Is More Challenge

Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works. I've just celebrated my first month here at the Studio and thought it was time to jump in with a little challenge and get to know some of the talented members here. This month, I have a new challenge called LESS IS MORE.

I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called BEACH BLISS. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers, add text or a title or whatever. You can duplicate items and use them over again. Be creative!

Post your LO here in the "Less is More" gallery and then link your LO back here in this thread.

Download the mini kit HERE.

Here's a preview of the mini:



And my LO:



With summer here now I'm sure you've got some photos in your stash to use with this challenge. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Cheers,
Darlene

What a beautiful mini... just got through scanning in some photos of when we lived on the water on Padre Island [outside of Corpus Christi]. Thanks for the mini... now to get busy with the challenge.

Saw your LO in the gallery - how fabulous! Do you still have the boat? I love the water myself, so was totally jealous when I saw this page. Super looking! Thanks for participating.

No, we moved from Padre Island 12 years ago and sold the boat. << sigh >> The move was prompted due to my arthritis getting bad. We now are in a much drier place and I am much improved. I do miss living right on the water but don't miss the hurricanes, etc we had to deal with. I have our wonderful memories of living there... so it works out.

I totally understand - it's about health first. And with the way hurricanes have been the last decade or so - I'm sure you don't miss those. But I'm sure there's lots of things you enjoy where you are now - sounds like it!

Claire - I really like your duplicating all the fish - giving it an underwater feel. Looks like your son was having a great time strolling the beach. Love the LO!

My grandpup Callie loves the beach, playing in the surf, racing up the sand and chasing beach birds.

It's so great to see pets in LOs too! Looks like your dog had the run of the beach. Great looking page Sandie and thanks for participating in the challenge!
