    Hello everyone. Welcome to day 12 of our MOC. I'm so excited to be hosting my first MOC challenge. Today I want to see all your elements and photos etc touching or overlapping one another. They should all link together in one cluster or a chain/garland

    Your challenge is to create a page where all of your items are connected or touching at least one other item, to create a cluster or chain of items on your page. You must have a minimum of 10 items that are connected to create your cluster or chain/garland. Items would be photos, journal cards and elements. Your background paper does not count as part of the cluster, nor do scatters or paint.

    Journaling is optional, but should be on a journal card, tag or journal strips and be included as an item in your cluster or chain.

    When you post your layout, please list your 10+ items that you have connected together.

    For my page I've connected all my elements to form a garland, and then added the photos and wordarts so that they touch each other and the garland.

    I have connected 3 photos, 4 leaf branches, 15 flowers, a ribbon tassel, date elements, a frog and 2 word arts.

    Here's a page by Karen. She has included journaling on a journal card.

    So in summary:
    Your challenge is to use a minimum of 10 items on your page (not counting scatters, paint or background paper). All of the items you use must touch or overlap at least one other element and be connected together forming a cluster or chain/garland. Journaling is optional, but should be on a journal card, tag or journal strips and be included as an item in your cluster or chain.

    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Your page must contain Lilypad product (pages with photos and font only do not count). Product from other stores will not be allowed for MOC; your pages must contain 100% Lilypad product (current or retired product from designers or guest designers presently selling at The Lilypad).

    If you have any questions please tag me in this thread, or send me a pm message

    spot reserved for clarifications and questions about the challenge


    Please remember to list your 10 or more items in the thread or gallery when you post your page, thank you.

    Yes, alphas do need to be connected to your cluster/chain of items.

    Everyone, please remember that journaling and word art needs to be connected as well! If you have journaling, it needs to be on a journaling card, tag, paper scrap, or something else that can be connected to the rest of the elements. Word art also needs to be connected/touching your element chain/cluster!
