    Hello challengers! I suspect everyone has recovered from the amazing craziness of MOC and is settling down into the routine of our monthly challenges! I'm here with this month's style challenge, and I want you to focus on the photo. Sometimes, you have a photo that just begs to be at the front and center of your page - big and bold, saying "look at me!" So your style challenge this month is to scrap a big photo - your main photo must take up at least half of your page. You can have additional photos if you want but you must have one photo that takes up at least half your page. My example is below:

    [​IMG]

    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 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 guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! 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).

    Go big or go home!

    You are so right... sometimes it's better to remember the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words"... there's not much more I can say about this one!
