    It's October!!!!

    I'm so excited to get to host a monthly challenge here!!! When I found out about my Guest Polly spot, this is just one thing I was really looking forward to so I started putting my thinking cap on early.

    7 years ago, this month, I found The Lilypad. This means October is a fun month for me to be hosting a challenge here! I didn't do too much forum interacting then, since I nearly always hold myself back from new groups, but the store was incredible for me. It was unique & allowed me to try designers whose style was outside of my normal "clean & simple" of the time. Later it was the community & challenges offered that really pushed me to interact, Hello MOC! It's just an encouraging & welcoming place & always adds just the right amount of inspiration to bring me out of any scrap funk.

    Because it's an anniversary of sorts for me I wanted to celebrate it with a 7 or 7 Challenge! (Also DSD this year falls on October 7th, so 7s for the win this month!!)

    It's a bit of a Recipe Challenge for you to create with!

    - 7 words or 7 sentences
    - 7 different papers or 7 paper shapes
    - 7 photos or 1 photo repeated 7 times
    - 7 elements (minimalist) or 7 distinct groups of elements (cluster fun)
    - 7 different designers (store collabs are ok!) or 7 kits by 1 designer
    - the number 7 or 7 numbers somewhere on the page (dates count!)
    - Add a title! (this can count with your 7 words or for an element if needed, & doesn't count against those)

    -Scrapping With Liz template - 7 papers by: Sabrina's Creations, Dawn Inskip, Allison Pennington, Lynne-Marie x2, & Sara Gleason x2 - 7 elements: flower & wood bit by Allison Pennington, stitches & 2x word strips by Sara Gleason, camera by Pink Reptile Designs, & bow by Sabrina's Creations


    As always: 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 $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).

    Yes! That's why I did two options for each that way it still can fit with peoples' personal styles :-)

    7`s (and any form of 7..17, 70, 77) are my lucky number as well! I was born on 10-7-70. So many dates in my life have been some form of 7. I LOVE October!! I love that DSD falls on my birthday! This challenge is an awesome one. Congrats on hosting your 1st challenge here!

    You found a great way to do it! Love that stamp!!

    I figured since it was 2017 that it people were using this years' photos that they'd be covered by using the date. That's what I did, lol!

    Wow, Elisa, this is a challenge. Now you know I am a girl of many words so I have a question. Is 7 a minimum but I can have more words or sentences if I so choose?

    So I have:
    7 papers by different designers - from Treasured (TLP bloghop) - Lynn Marie, Pink Reptile Designs, Gina Miller, Just Jaimee, Sabrina Dupre, Sabrina's Creations and from Lynn Grieveson's Coco kit
    7 elements - arrow; chevron; camera; star; buttons (2); stamp (thumbs up), border overlay and title
    7 sentences (the numbered bullet items)
    the number 7 - in bullet items plus in date
    Whee ... here it is:

    For that I'd say stick to 7's as best you can, maybe that means run-on sentences for the 7 sentences ;)

    This was a tough one! I very rarely use 7 designers or 7 photos on one layout!
    7 papers (each from a different designer), 7 elements...thank goodness for clouds), 7 words, the #7 (in the date) Whew![​IMG]

    I didn't read the instructions well enough to realized that you wanted ALL those 7s. Oh well, I just won't count this one as an entry.

    No worries on the extra designers! It's still in the spirit the same way a few extra words would be! Plus the more designers the better! :D
