    Happy Holidays! I hope you are excited for the upcoming month and are able to fit in a bit of time to document your memories! It has been a super busy past few months for my family and the holidays are only going to make us that much more strapped for time. But even though the days may feel crazy, there are certainly moments that are calming and re-centering.

    This month's photography challenge is to seek out those moments and capture them with your camera - document a moment of downtime with your camera and then scrap a layout with your photo.

    I consider downtime to be essential for recharging my and my family's emotional and physical needs, so it was so great to have some time away. I love these little moments! Here is my layout with my photo capturing a bit of downtime for my kids.

    As always, 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 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 (new prize starting with the July challenges)! 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).

    There is no better down time for us that sitting on the couch, or lying on the bed cuddling the new kitten.

    Loved the challenge -- so many ways I could have gone with it and had lots of fun creating this layout.

    I look at my fatcat when she is sleeping and I am amazed at how relaxed she is. I wish I could be like her, so mellow. To me, she epitomizes downtime.

    technically, I took this photo in November but didn't get to scrap it until tonight. but I'm just participating in challenges as a way to keep myself inspired so I think it's okay...

    @lcpereyra : Love the challenge. Just 1 question: can it be multiple photos of downtime? I'm thinking of doing a page about my favorite downtime: reading. In bed, on the train, et cetera. Pls let me know, thanks!
