Hello everyone, here's is the designer monthly challenge, we apologise for it's lateness .....better late than never

this months challenge is hosted by our very own talented designer Carena :D

over to you Carena

Ok Rather last minute we decided to provide this challenge this month. I couldn't see it go amiss this month again, so it means you are stuck with me this month. LOL

I have a FREEBIE Mini add on from my Kit: Golden Forest by Carena's Designs.

Full kit Preview Below and is available here at Scrapbook Max - CLICK HERE. (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/digital-scrapbooking-kits/products/Golden-Forest-%28Kit%29.html)
I also have premade clusters for this kit in store - HERE (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/digital-scrapbooking-kits/products/Golden-Forest-Clusters-%28Kit%29.html) These are ideal when you are in a hurry to scrap a page or you want a base to start a page from and then you can add further elements to it and make it uniquely yours.


Now for the Challenge this month
1. Use only the mini kit to make your layout
2. You can however use shapes to add interest
3. Upload your layout to the Scrapbook Max Gallery and Challenge Gallery
4. Come back here and proudly show us your layout with link to your gallery so we can all leave you some love.
5. Make your layout as complicated and clustered as much as you can. (just love those busy layouts)
6. Most of all - enjoy yourself and have lots of fun.

Pretty Easy - Can't wait to see what you do.

DOWNLOAD MINI KIT HERE (http://www.4shared.com/file/Cdww0mzh/carena_goldenforest_addon.html) (suitable for all programs)
Download will be available just for November before it's not available. Thanks

OH, Thought I'd just add and as I can't edit my previous post - I add here.

I have a new Fan Blinkie if anyone would like it to add to their signatures. :)
You never know what random gifts might come your way for wearing it. Hugs.

Here's mine, loved watching them and how they looked up no matter how soft the noise I made was as I was taking photos. It was so difficult to stand completely still since I wanted to capture every moment.:
