Hi all! I just realized I forgot to post about my Template Challenge this month! I must be having WAAAAYYYYY too much fun over at Ginger Scraps playing in their Scrapping Survivor 2 contest!!! More about that in a bit, let’s get to the FREEBIES first! lol
The April Template Challenge has been posted over at theStudio! Come snag yourself a FREE template, post a layout using the template, and earn points towards FREE products from theStudio!! Here’s a look at the template for this month:
I also wanted to let you know that I posted a QuickPage FREEBIE over on theStudio BLOG – go on over and check it out! It was made with a New Charity kit: Hug-A-Hero! And this charity kit is especially exciting for me because I actually CONTRIBUTED A MINI KIT!!! I know, can ya believe it?! Here’s a look at the QP freebie:
And here’s a look at the Hug-A-Hero kit: 100% of the donations go to Operation Hug-A-Hero to help with the “Daddy Dolls” they are giving to children of deployed Mommy’s or Daddy’s!! It’s such a great charity, and I am just so happy to have been able to contribute!!
Okay, now back to Scrapping Survivor!! I am proud to say that I have made it through to WEEK 4 of the contest!! I am still shocked I made it this far, and this weeks challenge is just that…. a challenge!!! Here’s a peek at the layouts that have gotten me to this point: (click images for full credits)
What?! You recognize this?! Why, yes… it IS the layout I used as inspiration for the template challenge this month!! hehehe….
I’m working hard on Week 4’s layout, but it’s giving me some problems here! We are required to use Camouflage print papers & Blend our photos into the background! Eeeeekkkkk! I’ve never blended a photo before! I’ve always tried to make my pages look as close as possible to “paper scrapped” so blending was never even a thought to me! I guess I better start learning some new tricks here if I want to win this thing!! hehehe… wish me luck! I’m off to make a killer layout before Sunday!!! Have a great day everyone!!
