Hello everyone! Polly Karen here, bringing you the monthly Challenge Spotlight post for May. Once a month I have the privilege of looking through the challenge galleries to find just a few of my favorite layouts and shine my spotlight on them here.
If you aren’t familiar with the challenges, here’s a little information about them to get you started. Starting in February of 2016, we now offer 8 monthly challenges in the forum. If you play along with these challenges you can earn yourself a coupon to use on your next Lilypad shopping spree. You will earn as follows: 2 challenges = 10% off, 4 challenges = 20% off and 6 challenges = 30% off. Also, if you finish at least 7 challenges, in addition to your coupon, you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a guest spot on the Creative Team (be a Polly) for a month! Now let’s look at some of the standout pages created for this month’s challenges:
1. Template Challenge – Use the provided free template:
2. Scraplift Challenge – Scraplift scrappydonna:
3. Photography Challenge – Macro or close-up photos:
4. Journaling Challenge – Journal ON your photo:
5. Random Challenge – Scrap about your favorite transportation:
6. Style Challenge – Create a double page layout:
by Sharon Evans:
7. Inspiration Challenge – Scrap about what or who inspires you:
by silent ranks:
8. BYOC Challenge – Use 90% current BYOC products from at least 3 designers:
Ok, so I know I say this every month, but it is such a joy to take the time to look through the challenge galleries here at TLP and just soak in the beautiful pages that everyone creates! I love it each and every time! It’s never easy to only pick 2 pages per challenge, that’s for sure (and as you can see, sometimes I have to pick an extra one!!) If you loved looking through these layouts as much as I did, please take a minute and click on them and leave these artists a little love. All images are linked. Also, this is your reminder that May 31st is the last day to complete these challenges yourself and earn a discount coupon and possibly even a guest spot on the Creative Team! I’ll be back next week to show you a whole new batch of challenges for June.
I am so pleased to be included, primarily because I learned something from this challenge. In the past, I have tried to copy the original closely. This time, I let it simply inspire me. That works better!
