HAPPY NOVEMBER! I hope everyone is having a lovely month. It's a month for family, remembrance, and stress (if you're a student like me). But, it's getting closer to christmas, which makes me happy.

I've got a recipe challenge for you this month! I love recipes, I love seeing how people interpret them. It's recycled from my speed scrap, since nobody played along with it. BUT, on happier notes- I'm excited to see what people come up with!

1. Using your shape tool (or a shape template- I know that there are some templates from Wishing Well Creations (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Wishing-Well-Creations/) that have shapes in them, and others that have strips.), choose one shape and arrange it at least FOUR times on your page. It can be a circle, a square, a rectangle, a strip, a heart, a triangle, a star, a paralellogram.. You can use any shape, and change the size of the shape. BUT, you must be able to clip ONE photo to this shape.

2. Choose at least FOUR papers. At least THREE must be patterned. arrange them on your layout to your liking.

3. Choose at least TWO photos. Arrange them on your page. Remember- you need to clip at least ONE of them to the shape you created.

4. Choose at least SIX elements (you may use more, but must have SIX different elements on your page), and arrange them as you'd like.

5. Use at least ONE ribbon, bow, or trim (ricrac, lace, stitching) on your page.

6. Create a title using MORE THAN ONE alpha (or ONE alpha and MORE THAN ONE font)

7. Add your journaling. A little, a lot, whatever you feel. If you don't want to do any journaling, then don't. It's up to you. Then, tweak your elements and your shadows, make your layout perfect.

Here's what I came up with:


I used Sugarplum Paperie's fabulous Every Day of The Year Collection (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Every-Day-of-the-Year-Collection.html)


I'm excited to see what you all come up with!
