    Hello! November is my birth month! I am gonna hit 55 this month!
    Look out senior specials! I WANT my discount! bhwhahah

    I am so excited about hosting a challenge! This inspiration has been in my folder since before last years Month Of Challenges (prepare yourself the MOC 2019 is around the corner).

    What I love about these advertisements is the starkness, and possibility of an extraction, (you do NOT have to DO an extraction, but golly what fun). The way you could take words, I love playing with sizes of titles, journaling and fonts. So, give it a whirl, try and be inspired from the ad, stretch yourself and your pages.

    Here is my page.​

    I used the paper in Kim's Every Day Boy

    Recap: Look at the three ads, and find inspiration in the context and design of the advertisement! Recreating parts of it is great too! Find inspiration and give it a good go! wootie woo​

    And as always:
    your page must contain at least 75% current Lily Pad product. (“Current product” is product created by Lily Pad designers who currently sell in the store. If it has a working store link, then that's a current product.) Your page should be posted to the Lily Pad Inspiration Gallery, the November Challenge Layouts thread (so it can be tracked), and to this thread.

    The Lily Pad provides 8 challenges a month for you to participate in, and uses a percent system for your rewards; 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 or more challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 Lily Pad gift certificate!

    Such great inspiration, Anne! I was inspired by the large photo with a single subject and the font work. I used this inspiration to make a start page for my album section about the Pixar Play Parade from our most recent trip to Disneyland. Thanks for the challenge!

    I was drawn to your LO when I saw it in the gallery. This will stretch my 'comfort zone', but what a great look!

    Hmmm. I haven't done an extraction in a long time. It might be time for me to try again!

    So this photo is from a few years ago. Sadly it is not like this as my daughter is 17 nearly 18.

    Sometimes

    Interesting Challenge...It Seems Like A Lot Of The Layouts Here Do Take On That "Starkness" That You Mentioned At The Beginning Of The Challenge But I Guess I Didn't Take That Literally Per Sea...I Looked At The Photos In The Sense Of Colors First Of All...The Use Of The Black & White Verses The Red & Blue Verses The Burgundy & The Flowers In Her Scarf...So I Incorporated All Of These Attributes Into My Layout But I Also Saw Three Really Independent,Strong,Individual Women With A Great Sense Of Self & Confidence...So Hence My Overall Theme Is About Having The Confidence To Be Yourself & The Courage To Let Others See The Real You...It Isn't Always Easy To Show People Who We Really Are For Fear Of Rejection Or Acceptance But We Are All Beautiful In Our Own Unique Ways & Showing These Attributes To The World Can Be Both Amazing & Awe Inspiring!...

    *For My She Thinks Of Flowers Layout-I Used:

    *Messy Marvin Vol.7-Elements-Amy Wolff
    *A Little Damaged Vol.6-Paper Pack-Amy Wolff
    *Hayrides & Smiles-Allison Pennington
    *Empty Nest-Elements-Amy Wolff
    *Welcome Autumn-Mommyish
    *Something Wicked-Sabrina's Creations & Sahin Designs
    *Treasured:Fall Is In The Air-Rebecca McMeen
