Week #45 Weekly Challenge!

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: This week's challenge is to use patterned paper as your background instead of cardstock. This would definitely be a challenge for me, as I tend to like a lot of "white-space" to rest my eyes on my layouts. However, I've been seeing lots of beautiful layouts with patterned paper as the background - so your challenge this week is to give it a try!

Upload your layout (PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR REAL LIFE NAME; IT MAKES OUR JOB SO MUCH EASIER!) to the WEEK #45 CHALLENGE FOLDER. All layouts must be uploaded by 9:00 a.m. CST on Monday, November 15th.

A few examples from our Baristas:

THE PRIZE: This week we're giving away (2) SEI 12x12 Paper Pads from the Claire and Jocelyn lines. Each pad includes pretty specialty papers with glitter and foil. And, as with all of our prize packages of late, you'll get enough paper 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. :) )
