Yesterday, I enter Word Art Challenge with Jen from Word Art World. She gave us these 3 wonderful word art freebies:

The challenge this month is to find a photo of our children or whomever doing what they do best: PAYING. In the LO we should use the overlay and at least ONE of the word art images provided.

The overlay s 12x12 sized .png and we can use it in a variety of ways, as paper, an overlay, a digital stamp, etc.

And here's my final LO:

This is what happen when my friends come to my house for a meeting. Our children are playing and messing with all the toys.... well, at least we can do the meeting... :D

Mountain Retreat Speed Scrap Challenge

Today I'm entering another challenge. This time Digital Scrapbooking Studio offering a beautiful sampler FREEBIE from the Master Designer: Mountain Retreat Challenge!

They gave us the sampler contains items from both the Designers who did the Mountain Retreat Speed Scrap Challenge: Angel Hartline Designs & Ruby Lane Designs.

It's really interesting to see how they did the challenge. First, Toiny gave them the color palette & theme. Like this:

Then they have to make mini kits out of them (8 papers & 24 unique elements). And here's what they come up with:

Beautiful, right?
Now.. they challenge the forum to do lay out challenge. They gave us this mini

and these instructions:
  1. Choose your background paper from the 3 provided
  2. Crop the other two papers into any shape and layer on your background paper - you may duplicate these papers as many times as you need
  3. Place the Frame (Ruby Lane) on top of your layered papers - you can rotate/resize & duplicate as much as needed
  4. Take the circle Mat (Angel Hartline) and layer beneath your frame, anywhere as long as it is beneath the frame - resize to fit your needs, NO DUPLICATING! You can only use this element ONCE!
  5. Add the circle border strip (Angel Hartline) horizontally across your frame, either under or on top - again, you can resize to fit, but DO NOT duplicate! You can only use this element ONCE!
  6. Take the cluster flower and the leaf (both Angel Hartline) and layer/cluster around your frame, keeping most of the layering/clustering to the left-hand side - you may resize, rotate, duplicate as much as needed
  7. Use the champagne glass (Ruby Lane) anywhere, but you can only use it ONCE!
  8. Add the pre-shadowed bubbles (Ruby Lane) anywhere they fit, resize accordingly, duplicate up to TWO TIMES for a limit of 3 bubble scatters on your layout
  9. Tuck the tag (Ruby Lane) under your cluster, NO duplicating, you can only use this element ONCE!
  10. Add photos, a title & journaling to finish off your layout.
And here's my final page:

It's really amazing to see how these wonderful designer do their works. Wishing one day I can make some kits just like them. In the meantime there's an Annual Next Designer Contest kicks off September 1, 2011

The contest is open to ANYONE interested in becoming a Designer, and their 10 TOP finalists from Round 3 will all win an exclusive, brandnew, CU Grab Bag from theStudio Designers.

Finally I completed my 7 day of Progressive Scrap Challenge. The theme for this month is Road Trip, taken from Digital Scrapbooking Studio August Mega Kit Road Trip.

This progressive scrap has gone for days. For the first day, Min from Deli Scraps gave us a download link with some pieces to use acording to #1 day's instructions. Our first download is free, and we got the others via pm after completing the day challenge.

We may recolor and/or crop the pieces or change their opacity but we have to use them as specified in each day's instructions and once placed are not allowed to move them.

#1st day we got four papers to start the challenge. They were created by Christine aka Digilicious Designs, Darlene aka Darlene H Designs, Julie aka Julie C Designs and our Guest Designer Janet B:

Instructions: Use three of the four papers to create a background for a road trip layout.
And here's my first lay out:


#2nd day we get elements created by our guest designer for August, JanetB, by Eva aka eqrAveziur Designs and Marie H Designs:
