Default December Surprise Me - Border Challenge

December! Where has the time gone! December 5th, and here I am finally getting our December challenge set up! As I thought about what to do this month, I wondered what your favorite border challenges have been? Have you enjoyed Top Borders? Are Side Borders your favorite? What about the Bottom Borders?

Your challenge this month is to create a layout using YOUR favorite border technique.

Rules:
* Create a layout with a border style of your choice - your favorite!
* You may use any kit; however, there must be a recognizable SEASONAL theme to your border. (Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall)
* Post your layout in the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery
* Come back here and post your preview and a link to the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery in this thread. This makes it super simple for us to find your layouts in the gallery, and we thank you for taking this extra step!

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 what you come up with!

What more recognizable for winter than Christmas? May be snow, but it didn't have! Global warming worry all of us.

Here's mine. I wanted the border soft and summery as we were together during the summer and the simpleness of the border portrays the layout.

Oh, Nancy, what a precious, precious photo. I love the scripture you used too. The border is lovely and perfectly fits this page. It accentuates the photo, and is lovely.

How beautiful, Kaye. What a lovely bride! And I really like how you incorporated the flowers into the LO that you also used on your border. Well done!

Felis, this is darling! I love how you used all of the elements to create a cookie-themed border! And your title is so perfect with your photo! Nicely done!

Hi, Glyss… Sure… We can include Christmas!  Sure!

Here is mine. I like the looks of the 12 x 12 layouts. But I can't print those out myself. So I often shrink them down to fit my 8.5 x 11 size paper and then fill the top and bottom of those pages with layered papers and sometimes elements. I guess you could say that is my trademark on my layouts that I have in my albums. So I guess that's the borders I use the most and enjoy making.

Altimasport, what a beautiful Christmas border! And I love how you inset the photos too.. looks like we are looking thru a window! Such a cute banner/cluster as well! I love side borders, and this one is lovely!

ElkFan, This is lovely! So elegant! I love how the border so perfectly resembles the items in your photograph! And what a gorgeous Christmas table you have set here!!! Love the title work too!

What a darling page, soshanna. I love the unique way you treated your border, with the square cut-outs! That is wonderful! I also love how you took up the whole page with your photograph! I really like the offsets in your journaling too. Looks like a fun day.

You know, Jan, I started out making 8.5 x 11 layouts.. it was really even before 12 x 12 caught on. It was rare, at that time, to even find 12 x 12 albums in the store! But, of course, now it’s rare to find the 8.5 x 11 albums! Shrinking down 12 x 12 templates to 8.5 by 8.5 and then using borders is a great way to combine both worlds! Great layout! And a darling Christmas photo!

Hey, Jodie! What a darling picture! Sammi looks like she is having a blast! Very cute side border! The blues really pick up the blue in Sammi’s dress and the blue tinge on some of the leaves.

Hi Nandy! You may submit as many layouts as you wish, as far as I know. I don’t think there’s a rule on that. ?? LOL on Matilda!! Love those lips and eyes!!! The snowman border, with another cute face, is just perfect! Love the stitching on it too!

Hey Lella! I almost missed your entry! Hey everyone!!! Click on the "Thanks" which is highlighted in Lella's post!

LOL, Jill! I can think of way harder things than this for you to contemplate! You’re a tease. You could knock this out in a second!.....how about it?

This is darling, Diane. I really like the side border you created, and how you hung the ornaments from the top border. Very nice way of using the glitter scatters too! Thanks for participating!
