View Full Version : Template Challenge 8/1

07-26-2011, 05:34 PM
Welcome to the very first challenge of the exciting new challenge system here at TDC!

I am a complete template freak. Actually, freak doesn't really cover it. I love them. I can scrap a page while my girls nap and be finished before they wake-up. There is no wondering where to place everything - it's all right there for me. And most templates allow for so much flexibility, I can move things, flip it, rotate it - whatever my heart desires.

Melissa of Cluster Queen Creations (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Cluster-Queen-Creations/) has provided the template for this challenge. I can't get enough of her goodies! You can download the template here (http://clusterqueencreations.com/download/cqc_8-1TemplateChallengeFreebie.zip) or by clicking the image below.

I had so much fun with this template! I thought about rotating it, but decided to keep it as is. I used the bright and cheery Breath of Fresh Air (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Breath-of-fresh-Air.html) kit by eNKay Design (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/eNKay-Design/).


I know you will love working with this template as much as I did. I can't wait to see what you all make! :D

Here's a bullet point list of the rules:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/) at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509)!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.

The deadline for this challenge is August 31st.

Great page, Lorry! just a note that you have to link us up to your page.

Thanks for the love, everyone! The template is awesome!
I used the "linked image" code from the gallery. Now that I look at it, you're right that it's not actually linked, but you can see why I didn't realize that! It says it is! Someone should probably look into that.

08-02-2011, 05:38 AM
Oh, what a wonderful template! TFS!

Very odd! Thank you for the head's up, Lorry. It should be linked (and used to be). I'll look into this.

I noticed that line didn't contain the whole code last night...I had to manually add the link to mine. (It was in the thumbnail option, but not the image option...if that leads to the right place in the code...)

08-02-2011, 10:41 PM
Thanks for letting us know, Lorry!

Gorgeous pages, everyone!

I changed it into a two pagers, which is a design I can't seem to work with... except with template. This one was perfect!

I have finished another layout from this template. This is it.
The Title translated is: "Carcrazy"
The journaling says (translated): "Gordon loves cars, so when he is playing in the sandbox, of course they are there too. Load and unload, reload and unload again..."
