    Well scrappers, we are a little more than halfway through MOC Nine and I hope everyone is having fun, feeling inspired and getting lots of scrapping done! I am bringing you my favorite template challenge today. Those who might shy away from templates because you like scrapping in your own unique style will LOVE this challenge!

    Today, your challenge is to combine parts of two different templates (which are provided to you) and make one unique page. The "oh so awesome" Cheryl of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs and the "super amazing" Rachel Jefferies have each generously provided a template for you to use. You must combine BOTH of the PROVIDED templates together on your 1-page layout. You may NOT use templates other than the two provided in this challenge. You can flip, rotate, resize and add/subtract photos and elements to make them yours, but we must still easily recognize your layout as originating from BOTH of the PROVIDED templates.

    If you are new to templates or just need a bit a refresher on how to use them, Cheryl has an awesome video tutorial that will get you started. Just click on the link below to access it.

    VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING TEMPLATES

    Are you ready to take a look at the templates you will be playing with? Here is Cheryl's template:

    Here is Rachel's Template:

    Here is my page combining the two templates together:

    I started with Cheryl's template as a base, rotated it 90 degrees clockwise, moved the paper strips and then embedded the photo cluster from Rachel's template into the element cluster in Cheryl's template. If you would like to see a more in depth description of how I combined the two templates, be sure to check out today's Blog Post.

    If you need some more inspiration, here are some awesome Polly samples:

    Official Challenge Rules:

    1. Combine the TWO PROVIDED TEMPLATES into a SINGLE PAGE LAYOUT.
    2. You must use only the two templates provided in this challenge.
    3. Add Lilypad product to your layout (see below for specific requirements).
    4. The TWO PROVIDED TEMPLATES must EACH be easily recognizable in your layout.

    In addition to the above rules for this challenge, please follow these general guidelines:

    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). If you use product from other stores, your pages must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    I can't wait to see your template-tastic creations!!

    Cinzia - click on the link under each template and it will take you to the Store where you can add them to your cart and check out. If you have any problems, let me know.

    I just downloaded both templates without an issue. Were you able to complete the checkout process through the store and they aren't downloading from that point?

    Thanks for the templates. I think that I was just too keen as I couldn't even get them into the cart but all fine now.

    I moved Rachels to the top left and then shrank down Cheryl's, removed some flowers and placed it towards the bottom right.

    this will be interesting.....I'd use Rachel's template on its own if I could because as much as I love Cheryl's......its way too busy for me but I know its about combining both
