    Hey there Pad Scrappers! I'm here with a new challenge for you this month - the Take Two challenge. It's a second chance to do something different to an already existing page. I know you all have pages you've scrapped in the past that worked well at the time, but when you look back on them, they're maybe not quite one of your favorites. Or maybe you've learned a new technique, and you have a perfect photo you'd like to try it on, only you've already scrapped that photo. Well, now's your chance to re-do that page!

    Go through your gallery, and choose a page or photo you want to re-do. Re-scrap it, and the post both the before and after pages here in this thread. Your new page should clearly look different than your first (you should do more than just add an element or two to your page, or only change your journaling) - really change up the page!

    For my Take Two, I found this page from January, 2010. I love this photo of Aspen, but I was never really wild about the page, and it doesn't have any journaling or say anything about her:

    [​IMG]

    So I rescrapped the photo, and shared her story:

    Now for the rest of the rules: Your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the June Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked! And of course, your page should be posted in the Lilypad Gallery so we can leave lots of love!

    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 all 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! The first six challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the seventh 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'm so excited to see how you guys re-do an old page!!

    I'm quiet sure I have mentioned this before..... but as much as you say (or at least used to say) that you didn't really like doing journaling...... everything I see from you is so well done and adds so much to the page.... you know I admire the aesthetics of your pages, you are my most fav blank space person....but the journaling takes the page to a whole new level...gorgeous re take on the page, amazing all together :) love your word talent - and yes, great challenge [​IMG]

    I'd like to officially go on the record as begging and pleading for this not to be a monthly thing. I have way too many things I haven't scrapped yet to be redoing old ones all the time!

    I'm sorry this challenge isn't one of your favorites. It will be part of our rotating challenges, but future months may include different twists on how you re-do an old page, depending on the host's goal for the challenge. I hope that will help, but remember these are supposed to be challenging, and we try to include a variety so that they appeal to everyone

    I agree with lorry. I have lots of photos I want to scrap and don't get to rather than redoing an ok page. Also I feel like whatever the page looked like when I made it is a piece of what my art skills were at the time and prefer to mark that time and not try to make a layout " better".

    I don't have too many pages in the gallery here yet, but my kids had such fun with the don't eat Pete game, so I decided to re-do this one
    [​IMG]

    and after a great day out at a farm where we saw all these animals, I did it with a farm theme! I hope that this counts, it is the same idea, just new elements (since neither have any photos!), but if it doesn't meet the requirements then just let me know and I'll remove it, thanks!
