Hey there challengers! Welcome to May! How crazy is it that we're already celebrating May?! I've been getting into my camera lately, playing with different settings, different ideas, and one thing I'm fascinated with is macro/close-up photography. I don't have a macro lens (yet), but I've been experimenting with my zoom lens and manual focusing and I love the detail I see by getting up close and personal! So that's your photography challenge for this month - scrap a macro or close up photo. You should take a new photo for this challenge - and don't be afraid to get superclose to your subject! Here's my page: 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). Now, go get a little closer, and start snapping!
