Welcome to July!!! It is the beginning of Summer for most of us, and that means vacations, outtings and barbeques. It may be a little different this year with more stay at home festivities, but we can still have fun with "staycations" and scrapping! With a new month, it welcomes a new month of challenges here at the Lily Pad!!! I am so excited to be hosting the July Template Challenge! This month, we have an amazing template from our very own and very talented Elif Sahin Designs! You can download the template HERE. Then using the free template, create your own layout. You can scrap it exactly as it is, or you can flip it, rotate it, add or replace, as long as we can tell you used the template as your starting point. Here is my page: (I flipped the photo spot and duplicated it for my page) (Credits: PRD's Oh Sew Crafty, Captured and In My Purse (collab with Designs by Soco) fonts: Arial, Daisy Wheel, BambusaW01 Regular.) 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 July 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 am excited to see your pages! Have fun!
