    Hi Gang! Happy September! I've put together this month's Inspiration challenge. It kind of went on a journey, so I hope you can follow along. First I was thinking black and white, hen I added some kraft, then I thought a pop of red would be awesome (probably because I just wanted a reality tattoo show about trash polka tattoos).So that is where it landed black and white (minimal kraft is also allowed) and one colored item. Your colored item can be your photo, a paper, or an element, but only one! Just enough to make it really pop.

    Here is an example of a trash polka tattoo:

    Here is my page to show you exactly where my mind went:

    Your other instructions: your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the September Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked! And of course, your page should be posted in the Lilypad Gallery so we can leave lots of love!

    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 all 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 six challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the seventh 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 black and white pages!

    I went for literal interpretation in the end, I wasn't happy with my banana one, seemed too bright, so I made this one instead.
