Hi everyone, and welcome to August. This month's Random Challenge is to use a photo as your background. I find this to be one of the quickest ways to scrap! You can blend it, run a sketch action, or just use the photo as is, it's your choice. But make it big, and make it your background. Here's my page, using some of the wonderful Lilypad Designers' Ultimate Vacation blog freebies: As you complete your page, please remember and follow the Lilypad Challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the August Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked! And of course, your page should be posted in the Lilypad Gallery so we can ooh and ahh over all the gorgeousness! The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete all 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! The first six challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the seventh challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges). Can't wait to see your pages!
