Hello everyone and happy August! I can't believe this is the last month of summer for us in this part of the world. I am NOT ready for back to school, so I'm happy to avoid it with a little more blissful scrapping in my summer free time. This month I am bringing you the style challenge and my challenge to you is to use parts of 2 different templates to create your layout. I started this layout and loved everything about the clustered elements and photos together in Liz's template, but really wanted something busier in the background, so I used the scallops from Cheryl's template and I LOVE the combined result! So all you have to do is take parts from 2 different templates and combine them to make your layout. Here is my layout: I used the center section of Liz's Recyclables 64 and the awesome scallops from Cheryl's Bonny Borders. Please remember: 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, the first Friday of the month. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).
