    Hello fellow scrap addicts! Are you ready for a new set of challenges? The inspiration for this month's random challenge comes to you from Real Simple. Each issue of the magazine includes "the simple list" which is a collection of trivia and conversation starters. The interesting thing is that all of these little tidbits are introduced using numbers. For instance, did you know that James Brown used 20 colored plastic rollers every day to set his hair? Ok, so I never said the information was useful.

    I was inspired by the use of numbers. So here is the challenge. Create a page that uses numbers to tell your story. Include at least 3 numbers on the page For example you might scrap about your day using the number of times you hit the snooze button, the number of cups of coffee you drank, and the number of minutes you spent sitting in traffic on the way to work.

    Here's my page. My husband and I will celebrate 20 years this month so I thought I'd do a numerical summary of some of the things that have happened during those years.

    You don't have to follow the magazine layout for composition - be as creative as you like. Just be sure to include at least 3 numbers on the layout. Hope you have fun and can't wait to see your pages!


    Please remember: Your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the March 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).
