    Hi everyone and welcome to the October Challenges. Did you know that October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH?
    [​IMG]

    I would love to do something special for this challenge and thought what better way is there to show our support than by including a Pink Bow, Pink Ribbon/Ric Rac or a Strip/Band of Pink Paper to our pages.

    If you wanted to take it a step further you could create a page that is predominately pink too so long as you have a bow or ribbon in it! How amazing would it be to see The Lilypad Gallery bursting in every hue of pink imaginable! Oh my heart would be full!

    Here’s my page. I created a predominately pink page and added two pink ribbons, 1 bow and a strip of pink paper just to cover all the possible challenge criteria hehe

    HERE’S THE EXCITING STUFF!
    For every page that is created showcasing a pink ribbon, bow or pink strip of paper, I will donate $1 AUD to the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION here in Australia. This amazing organisation offered lots of support and information to me during my breast cancer fight. To make it even more incredible our lovely Laura @lmccandless has offered to match my donation by donating her portion to a foundation of her choice, will keep you posted on which one, but how awesome is that! As a community we could raise a sizeable amount for this cause. So make sure you share your page below in this thread to be counted :)
    As always, 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 October 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).

    I can't wait to see your pink ribbon pages everyone!
    P.S If you decide to make a donation independently to a Breast Cancer organisation of your choice and your comfortable to share a screen shot of your amount here, do so, it would be awesome to tally it all up and see how much we have raised as a community by the end of the month. I’ll update the total here after the challenge closes!
