Week #40 Weekly Challenge!

I recently made a few hours to scrapbook this past month, and of course I pulled out the upcoming October kit. I found some photos in my stash that coordinated with the Bella Boulevard One Fall Day Layout Kit, pulled out my supplies and had a blast. One thing I did on several layouts was to layer page elements using pop dots. I have seen this as a trend recently, and I wanted to give it a try. I discovered that the cloud paper in this kit was PERFECT for creating layered pop-up elements. I cut out clouds and layered them on top of other clouds for depth and dimension.

Well, that was so much fun that I did it with other elements as well. I pop-dotted (yes, I'm using that made-up word as a verb) all sorts of elements... the apple in this layout (well, and I pop-dotted the clouds too because I couldn't resist)...

the row of circles on this layout...

and more clouds on this layout (what can I say)...

So, I started looking around, and I noticed that lots of others are pop-dotting too!
Jenny is pop-dotting...

Shawnna is pop-dotting...

Melanie is pop-dotting...

and Frances is pop-dotting...

shoot...Frances is even pop-dotting alphabets. Doesn't that look cool!

(I'm going to have to try that on a layout this week...)

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: POP-DOT something on a layout this week! Everyone's doing it, and you'll probably find that you'll love doing it too! Upload your layout to the WEEK #40 CHALLENGE FOLDER. All layouts must be uploaded by 9:00 a.m. CST on Monday, October 12th.

THE PRIZE: This week's prize package features an great collection kit from Crate Paper's Little Sprout line, along with the coordinating Little Sprout stamp set. The collection kit includes twelve 12"x12" double-sided, heavy-weight, lightly textured papers (two each of six designs), 72 glitter diecuts, 5 glitter borders, and alphabet stickers. As always, with our Crate Paper prize packages, there is enough product included to create multiple pages or a theme album - or to share with a friend. :)

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 no larger than 500x500 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. :) )
