Default White Space Challenge

This should tell you how my week is starting....I was almost finished with this post...and the browser crashed. Never fails right?!Well anyway, I am a day behind so I'm attacking it again! Be a good browser....


The month of May really smacked up and bit me in the...well, you know. So as hard as I tried I simply didn't get anything extra made this month I was so super busy getting ready for iNSD and working on a lovely collab with Carin Grobe Design that I just ran out of time! BUT!!! There is a freebie. Oh yes, there is. You see Min and I created this awesome collab called A Love Remembered for our Feature Designer spot and along with that, we crafted up a lovely little add on!


You will have to go to THIS thread to get the coupon for the add on though!

Well with this add on in mind, for the month of May we will be focusing our pages on: A Love Remembered! Now I'm not talking about a page with your spouse, your kids or even your pets! Let's take it a step further and go for a page with a little more thought! This month,let's make a page about something you love, but don't think of every day! Maybe the beach? Or quiet time in the garden? A good book?! You can do anything, but make sure it's something that isn't every day!

Post your pages in the gallery here:
http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...challenge.html
Post your pages here as well so we can see!

Please get your pages in by May 31st! All participants receive and extra 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.

What will YOU come up with?!??!!

Question Re: White Space Challenge

I have a question: What does White Space mean? I have never done a page called this and it looks like all the pages are covered in something. Shouldn't there be a lot of one solid color or something?

I didn't know what that meant either, so hopefully my LO is ok.

Honestly, it's up to you. The BASIC for a while space page is a looooot of room left! However, everyone is unique in what they feel is white space! Some use a little extra space, and some use as little space as possible! Usually, I'm the latter

I'm with Danielle on this. Remember, there are no rules in scrapbooking. Both Rhonda's and my layouts are taking up more room than usual with a white space layout but they still have a lot of background showing with very little elements. I guess, with my layout, most people would have left off the lighthouse in the center and just gone with the little cluster in the corner-----but I'm different!!! In fact, I got my inspiration from Rhonda's layout!!!! I really love what she did!!

Firstly loooove your kits- will be back with what I love- be warned there may not be much 'white space' left though

This challenge made me really think about what I love. Coming across these washed-out photos( well it is a white space challenge) I knew immediately what it was that I truly love and.... it is the 'Magic Moments of Life'. Hope you enjoy my story and although these aren't good photos, the fog was like pea soup, they captured a 'magic moment'.

I had a hard time coming up with something I love that I haven't done in a long time. So I had to ask hubby. He said, "Well we haven't been to Niagara Falls in years and you used to love to go there....." So that's what I went with LOL.
Thank you for a thought provoking fun challenge, D!
