    Hi Everyone, welcome to my first challenge as a Polly!

    I'm so excited to be hosting this months inspiration challenge which I’ve called BOUNTIFUL BUNTINGS. I thought it would be fun to see our gallery filled with pages that showcase a fully laden Bunting or Banner as the hero of our design!

    For some cool ideas, products and videos, I’ve collated a Pinterest Album and hopefully this will inspire you on your very own BUILD ‘a’ BUNTING masterpieces.

    So, for this BUILD ‘a’ BUNTING challenge you must include a minimum of 3 items fastened to your bunting. You can use stitches, pins & paperclips to name a few and fasten those 3 unique items to your bunting/s. Some items might include PHOTOS, LETTERS, ELEMENTS, TAGS, WORD CHIPS and RIBBON. The combination is entirely up to you, below I have outlined some possible combinations.
    • [1xPHOTO + 1xTAG + 1xLETTER]
    • [5xPHOTOS + 3xTAGS + 8xRIBBONS]
    • [3xPHOTOS + 2x WORD CHIPS + 1xFLOWER]
    TO RECAP
    • Using a selection of fasteners
    • Clip 3 unique items to
    • 1 or More Bunting/s or Banner/s
    Here is my page & I can’t wait to see your creations in the gallery! Hope you have fun with this one :)

    If you are looking for some really handy tips on building a bunting and shadowing here are some great links. This first one was shared with me by @cfile thank you so much Christa for sharing @jenn mccabe awesome tutorial. Jenn's cool techniques on DIY Banners is definitely full of fantastic tips and tricks using CC, so check the video below for extra inspiration.

    Leah, @mommyish also shared a cool video on how to
    use her really handy CU/PU- Shadow Styles + Separate The Shadow on PSE.

    …………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    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 March Challenge Layout Thread so it can be tracked, and finally 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).

    This one made me put on my thinking cap. I didn't have any TLP fasteners, but I made do with what I had.

    I hope I did it correct. It was a lot harder then I initially thought it would. I loved the challenge though.

    This was fun, looking for bits to make my banner, I went through a LOT of kits, and am pleased with my results
