    Hello and welcome to the August Random Challenge. I'm challenging you to play with patterned paper on your layout this month.

    Specifically you must use at least 3 patterned papers.
    • One must be stripes, plaid or lines.
    • One must be a repeat pattern.
    • One can be your choice.
    You can use more than 3 patterned papers if you'd like. Anything else is fair game as long as you have the 3 patterned papers noted above.

    My page has:
    • a lined patterned paper as the background,
    • a green floral paper as the repeat,
    • and a map paper as my 3rd patterned paper.

    Please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the August Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    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 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth 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).

    Looking forward to seeing your pages full of patterns!

    Thanks for the challenge I am usually a one paper wonder as just a background or maybe an overlay so this is great...

    Me too! And I hardly ever use a pattern as my background - so this was a stretch for me. Can't wait to see your page!

    This was a bit of a challenge and helped me fill in my pocket page.
    • Striped paper - navy blue / white stripes
    • Repeat pattern paper - light gray circles (behind birthday boy)
    • Your choice - blue wave pattern

    Interesting challenge... I would have never gone with the big bold floral to take up over 1/2 my page, but I rather am fond of it now. :-)
