    Hello everyone!
    I am bringing you the November Inspiration Challenge this month. I have never been a great home decorator, and I am always in awe of people who at least appear to have it all in order. I especially love front porch decor, and every time I see them online or in magazines, it makes me really wish that I could pull it off...but I never seem to make it happen.
    So instead of my front porch, I figured that I would make a layout...inspired by front porches. And that was WAY more in my wheelhouse!! :giggle
    Your challenge this month is to take inspiration from the front porches below and use them as a starting point for your layout.

    Here are the front porches:

    Here is my layout - I chose the front porch in the top right. You can see that I used the white shiplap for the background (like the house), the light mint/green anchor circle (like the door), lots of greenery with pops of orange and minty blue/green, some metal and sparkly lights.

    I can't wait to see how these front porches inspire your layouts!!

    Please Remember:
    Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the November 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 $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).

    They all inspire me but I am choosing the top left because of the blue door and the photos I want to use.

    I chose bottom left and used a similar colour pallete, with floral accents.
    Great challenge, I love the cover for my safari album.

    love this inspo challenge! we don't really style front porches/verandahs seasonally like that here, except for xmas really but they all look fab & i knew FDD had some cool wreath cut-file style templates that i had to play with again for a non-xmas page!
    i started out using the lower left one with it's soft colours & neutrals as my backgrd, wreath and photo treatment but it felt like it needed some colour so like the top left where the pumpkins are the main punch of colour, i added some colour with my elements but went more for the styling on the right porches where there isn't perfect symmetry

    I was inspired by the bottom right porch. I remembered this template by Scrapping with Liz and the NOV BYOC was the right color palette. Thank you for an inspiring challenge.

    This is a two page LO!
    Thanks for the challenge. I chose the bottom left photo as I thought the neutrals would make the photos stand out.

    I choose the bright colors in the one on the bottom right. I also got inspired by the wreath and the stripy / wooden background and the pumpkin / fall theme of course!
