Hello everyone and welcome to our December challenges. It's hard to believe we are already at the end of the year! This month I get to host the Template Challenge and our amazing template is provided by our very own and very talented Kate Hadfield. It's a great template to showcase a series of photos in a way that lets the pictures be the star of the page. Click on the image below to go directly to the template in the store. The challenge rules are simple: use the provided template to create a page. You can flip it, rotate it, add things, erase things, enlarge it, shrink it - just make sure that we can tell you used the template to start from on your page. Here is a little inspiration from me (I rotated the template to match my photo orientation). For credits, the image is linked to the gallery. 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 December 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). I can't wait to see your pages!!
