Well, here I am...Some of you probably had doubts...lol...I am so excited...I have a doc's appointment in the morning and is the reason I am posting this late...I should be in bed...LOL...But I enjoy this quiet time...Anyways, I think I have everything figured out and put together...:eek: Don't worry, it's all good!! Here we go:

Here is your freebie mini kit to use for this challenge...Contains bits and pieces from my kit Stand By Me....
http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/data/2771/SBM_Week1_Mini.jpg (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/36151)
...and here is the entire kit that you could receive for FREE...All you have to do is follow the rules, post your layout in the right catagory in the gallery and then in here...I will then email you this pretty kit...

The Rules:
1. Make a layout using ALL items in my mini kit. (More then once is ok)
2. DO NOT use any other color then whats on the color swatch. (attached below)..YOU MAY, change the colors of the items included, but again, it has to match the colors...
3. Make at least one shape from the two papers.
4. The wordart "LOVE" that is in my mini, must be in your journaling or part of your title.
5. Upload your layout to the right catagory in the gallery..(Weekly Challenges), then copy the second code located under your layout, and paste it in this thread...

After this is done, I will send you a PM with the download link for your free kit...Not too hard, right? Have fun...and any questions, please feel free to ask..

Here's mine & the 'extra' I made is the scalloped border beneath the picture...
I also made the background 'cut-out' mat.
Think I've used everything...!!!

10-19-2009, 02:15 PM
I am tickled to death that you are liking this challnge...Trust me, I have some ideas up my sleeve for at least a couple more weeks...lol..It's funny, I can't just sit around anymore, without thinking about scrapping...Isn't that sad? :D Anywho...I sent the both of you a PM for your free kit...I do hope you can use it...I found both of your layouts stunning...Thanks again for joining in...

One thing I would like to add...This kit is only free for this week's challenge, starting Monday, it will go in the store...So grab it while you can....((HUGS))

10-19-2009, 03:03 PM
Here is my try for this challenge. I used the lace for the background of the frame, purple paper was used in shape of charm for picture. a heart shape I received from Eye for photo. I'm still trying to get ahold of this again, haven't had the time to really get into, so many things are very basic. Love the new version, just need time to get to know it. And sorry, I forget how to use the colors from the swatch for my text, hope I'm not off too much!!

Loving what you all have done :)

This one is of one of my Autistic children, she makes me laugh, she makes me cry but most of all her difference is what makes her so much more special and something I love about her deeply :)

This is my other little girl with a lot milder form of Autism and she too makes me laugh and cry but something about her smile that really lights up every room she enters...it is her smile that will melt you

10-26-2009, 10:50 AM
Awesome layout Kimmy...I sent you a PM for your free kit...

I decided to leave these challenges open forever...lol...Basically, if someone wants to still make a layout for this challenge who hasn't already to win the free kit, go right ahead...I won't be uploading it to the store...I had a couple requests about it, and thought ok...lol...So it will always be up for grabs as long as you make a layotu with the freebie....((HUGS))

Now for week 2...Woo-Hoo! Check it out! :D

10-31-2009, 03:57 AM
Well, I finally got it done. I wanted to use this kit because of Gemma's lavender dress, but it was difficult for me to use all those embies. Oh well.


Thank you for the wonderful colors.

11-05-2009, 07:23 PM
Thank you so much for playing....Your page is so adorable!!!!! I sent you a PM with the link to the free kit...Enjoy...

11-11-2009, 12:54 PM
I made this card with Michelle's beautiful kit, so if any of you are able to use it, please do. :)

The page size is A5 UK, you will produce a tent fold card.

To print, set your print settings at A5 portrait and print the first page. Then refeed the page to print side two on the reverse - you will need to check with your printer how to do this. If you've never printed on two sides with your printer, I suggest you practise before putting in your cardstock. :)

Blessings - FS xx
