Week #16 Weekly Challenge

I'm sorry for the delay in getting this week's challenge posted. Yesterday we were in the process of having our message board and member gallery upgraded by invisionzone.com (our hosts), and it took a bit longer than anticipated to get the gallery upgraded and live again. So, I'm going to make this challenge super-easy and oh-so fun. In fact, I am so in love with this particular challenge that I just might make it a regular monthly featured challenge!

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: Create a layout based on any of the layouts in our APRIL IDEA GALLERY - that's right - scraplift any of the layouts in the April Idea Gallery in whatever way that you are inspired. Upload your layout to the WEEK #16 CHALLENGE FOLDER. When uploading your layout, please make a note that lets us know the name/title of the layout that you scraplifted, along with the name of the designer so that we can see how the original layout inspired you. :) All layouts must be uploaded by 9:00 a.m. CST on Monday, April 26th.

Below are a few of my favorite layouts from our Design Team Members this month:
Lan Amphone:

Jenny Moore:

Deb Wisinski:

Brenda Carpenter:

Melanie Call (Guest Designer):

THE PRIZE: Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl Crafting Kit! You'll receive all of the new Material Girl patterned papers plus the coordinating sticker sheet - perfect for creating lots of homespun layouts - and the perfect place to try out Brenda's backstitching technique presented in the April Mid-Month-Pick-Me-Up Blog post (see below!)

CHALLENGE RULES:There are only 2 rules if you want to enter a weekly challenge:
1.) Your submission has to be a new layout created for this challenge. :) You're on your honor here, but the idea of a Weekly Challenge is to finish new layouts and not simply upload old layouts. :) (Your actual layouts can be done in any size - 12x12, 8.5x11, 8x8... whichever size you scrapbook in!)
2.) Please only submit one time for each weekly challenge! (You will need to be registered on our message board to upload your layout to the Challenge Folder gallery. Registration just requires that we confirm your e-mail address so we know you're not a spammer. :) (In order to upload layouts to our gallery, you will need to be sure to resize layouts to about 350x350 pixels and 72-75 dpi. If you're file size is much larger than that, you'll get an error message when attempting to upload. :) )


  1. I can't get my layout to post. I've registered and tried using the help section to no avail. What am I doing wrong?
