Hello everyone! Polly Karen here, bringing you the Challenge Spotlight post for August. Once a month I have the privilege of looking through the challenge galleries to find just a few of my favorite layouts and shine my spotlight on them here.
If you aren’t familiar with the challenges, here’s a little information about them to get you started. We now offer 8 monthly challenges in the forum each month. If you play along with these challenges you can earn yourself a coupon to use on your next Lilypad shopping spree. You will earn as follows: 2 challenges = 10% off, 4 challenges = 20% off and 6 challenges = 30% off. Also, if you finish at least 7 challenges, in addition to your coupon, you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate! Now let’s look at some of the standout pages created for August’s challenges:
2. Style Challenge – Make a clean mixed media page:

3. Journaling Challenge – Journal about something that fills you with emotion:

7. Random Challenge – Scrap about the area you live (but not your house):

Aren’t they all amazing?!?!? I seriously don’t think it’s ever taken me so long to look through all the challenge galleries and narrow down my choices. (And I guess I really didn’t narrow my choices down very well this month either) Ha ha! There were SO many fantastic stories being told and I just had to read about so many of them and check out the amazing photos too! If you loved looking through the spotlights layouts above as much as I did, please take a minute and click on them and leave these artists a little love. All images are linked. Also, this is your reminder that tomorrow, August 31st is the last day to complete these challenges yourself and earn a discount coupon and possibly even a $50 gift certificate! Now that is worth scrapping for! I’ll be back in just a few days to show off the new batch of challenges coming for September.
