August - Designers Challenge

Postby SuzannaL » Aug 16th, '16, 4:09 pm

This month's designers challenge is up you can find the details here;
http://www.cocoadaisy.com/blog/monthly- ... challenge/

The challenge is simple; go big with the number of photos you use or go home! Use 3 or more photos on your layout. Simple as that. No pocket pages please (that's too easy).

Be sure to check out the blog post and see what Anna and Suz created for you.

Here is my sample - a companion page to the one created for the stamping feature earlier this month;

I really don't like chair lifts and aerial trams, but we seem to end up on them every vacation!

That's fantastic Terry! The layout really allows one to focus on those pictures and the occasion. The three pictures create a great visual triangle.

Thanks for playing along!

Suzanna, I love that row of circles and photos, and the deer paper is so cute!
Terry, what gorgeous views!! Love that someone in your family captured a pic of you. ;) That little canvas banner is perfect!

I'm slowly chugging away on my Taiwan album. Here is the latest page I was able to finish up this week!

These are so fun.

Terry I love that little I'd you created with the title in the top right.

I think I can only remember one cable car trip that I've done. That was in the Alps. I think I would feel very anxious now.

You've managed to fit so much on the one page and it still looks so pretty lisa.
What a fun experience.
The top right look like jelly fish.

I feel like cheating because the LO was originally made with the CTK sketch in mind. However it incorporates three photos, so it also fits here. ;D
It was quite a challenge because I usually don't scrap this many photos on one Layout.

I love Lisa how you were able to fit so many pictures on a page and it doesn't look crowded! What a great trip! And those pictures?! It's not an easy feat to get lights at night - fantastic! Thanks for playing along this month!

It's not easy fitting that many pics on a single 12x12 piece of paper but you did a marvelous job! I love that the pictures show such togetherness and are unified with the way you arranged them. Thanks for playing along this month!

Again, I'm amazed at how y'all accomplished this task seemingly so easily. I have to work HARD to get 3 pics on a page and yet you have 4 and tons of fun embellishments that are cohesive here Sylvia. Lovely layout and those gnomes are so darn cute! Thanks for joining in my challenge this month!

Hope I'll get a nice and quite evening here soon so I can play along too! I have a layout that needs to be done but teething and the man of the house having a fever and a nasty throat has given me zero time so far :/ is Thursday the last day?
