Default September Surprise Me Border Challenge

September, theStudio's birthday month! We have a lot of challenges and activities for you to participate in! Thank you for coming by the Surprise Me Border Challenge!

Usually I set challenge guidelines and ask you to create a border. This month I am going to GIVE you a border, and ask you to personalize it!

I have a new product line coming out soon... Border Buddies (layered PSD border templates).
Here is a sample for you to download and use as your border for this months challenge.



Your challenge is to make this border unique... make it "yours." Apply styles, clip papers (or photos!), color... whatever strikes your fancy!

Make it as simple........
(by me!)


or as complex as you wish!
(by Norma, a member of both my CT and theStudio CT)


When I gave Norma this sample and asked her to create a layout with it, I didn't specify any kit for her to use. She chose to use my kit Hay Day, so I decided to put that kit and all of the extras on sale for 40% off during the month of September.

Here are the rest of the rules:

* You may use any kit you wish.
* 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 am so looking forward to seeing what you do!

Thanks, Diane! The black stroke you put around the border design really brings out the black in your photo.

Debdux... Lovely job with the border, I really like that you duplicated it and used it as a top and bottom border! This is a great way to get even more usage out of a border design.

I had such a good time with this personalize the border template challenge, Karen. AND working with the Scenic Routes kit to do it made these reflections on the Sun City RVers trip to Zion last spring so much fun.
HERE's MINE
