Hello everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy these days! It’s Polly Karen here bringing you another monthly Challenge Spotlight post. 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 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 April’s challenges:
2. Inspiration Challenge – Use at least 5 word chips, short quotes or phrases on a layout:
3. Journaling Challenge – Journal about “Life Right Now”:
4. Random Challenge – Create a layout about staying connected:
5. Photography Challenge – Photograph something in your life that has changed:
by Beth Holmes:
6. Style Challenge – Cut out part of one photo and use it a second time:
by Mama Shades:
Wow! This post took me a lot longer than usual and that’s a great thing! There were so many beautiful pages in the galleries! I especially LOVED reading all of the pages for the journaling challenge. It’s a fascinating snapshot of history in the making and intriguing to see how this pandemic has affected each person differently. It’s also a little comforting to know that some things are the same all around the world. I hope that you find inspiration from them too! If you have a minute and would like to spread some love, all the images above are linked. I will be back in just a few days to show off a new batch of challenges for May.
