Using the template attached, take the elements that are included on this page and make this layout look DIFFERENT!!!

You can use your advanced features options to change the hues, emboss, tint, etc.

YOU MAY NOT USE ANY ELEMENTS OTHER THAN WHAT I HAVE INCLUDED HERE with the exception of changing the alphabet "N" to go with whatever theme you are working on and of course, you may change the "your photo here" mat to a photo.

You can resize, recolor, rearrange, crop, duplicate existing elements, use your advanced features to create effects, etc but DO NOT ADD ANY ELEMENTS!

When you post your layouts, please tell us what you have changed and if you learned any new techniques! Feel free to ask your fellow scrappers questions about using advanced features. THis should really be an exercise in creativity!

This challenge will be up for the month of December so feel free to complete it several times if you would like! Good luck and have fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Had a good time with this one.

Turned the backgound and used the crackle effect twice on it. Duplicated the picture and matting, reshaped and shadowed, Took the shadow off the corner. The B hung from the corner naturally - couldn't have done that if I tried.

This was really a challenge - I used the hue slider to change colors and sepia to change tints. I used perlin to get a different edge. Then I used change shapes to get the tag and brad from the elements included. There may have been more things, too. This challenge gets us to try the photo editing - great idea, Julie! Also changed the layout to 8.5 x 11 which has been a challenge for me because I've always been a square!!

Here is my entry, I really enjoyed this challenge,thanks Julie:)

http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=5170&cat=500&ppuser=230

I changed the background using the solarize effect-
the corners were embossed-
For the mat behind my pic I used the scribble effect-
ribbon 1 was embossed & used the hue button -
ribbon 2 I used the crackle effect-
& the letters in title were changed using the hue & saturation button.

Attention Debbie Howitt!
The letters used were found in the Life is a Garden kit from SBM!

When I saw the N in this challenge I couldn't resist the temptation to try this for something to honor my Nana who passed away this year. I explained the process in the gallery photo. I still have much to learn!!

Hello all. I'm pretty new to this would really like to join in this challenge. But I must be a real 'der' brain. I can't send it. I went into 'file, then e-mail, but when all that comes up I don't know what address to put in. I tried the one that is written on the bottom of some of your messages, but a message comes up saying that it can't send because I haven't put in user@host. Please tell me what to put in the address bar, so that I can send in my page too.

Hi Bill
From your SBM Project page you select
File / Publish to / Images....
Save in a folder (remember which one)
then
Log on to SBM
go into Gallery / & upload your jpg image into your album.

See if this works.................

Hi Mary. Thanks for that. I managed to upload it only for it to be the wrong type of file. Do you or anyone else know if there is any thing I can do to change it?

Marion

Ok, I think I did it. I click and clacked until I figured out where the advanced features were. I never new you could change background colors. After changing the background to every color under the sun, I choose green because the photo was taken in the summer. If I did it correctly my page should be in the gallery at

http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=5256&cat=500

I think I put it in my gallery and not the challege gallery. I can see my photo here: http://scrapbookmax.com/gallery/

Its the one called Patsy on the farm.

This is my 1st try at a challenge & I really had fun.. The PIC is of my Dad & me that I scanned & edited this summer. I changed almost everything just to play with all the Effects. I used Solorize several times, changed hues & saturations & so many others things I lost track... Terry

Hi,
I am a brand new scrapbooker. The only other album I have ever done was a scrapbook for my son's BlackBelt test on Dec 1st this year. I thought doing the challenge would help me get acquainted with the program. I am not sure how to upload to the gallery yet, so I am attaching it here if that's okay. I had to change the size so it would upload. I hope it still looks okay.

you are to take the template on page 1 and use those elements only to create a layout by changing the elements using the advanced features.

I decided to try this fun challenge one more time - I tried almost every effect but didn't use most of them. I kept most of the colors the same because they were a good match for the picture. Here it is:

Yes Rosana, there is a challenge usually every week, but this month it was for the month. And yes if you participate and post a layout you will receive a gift. Be sure you have your privat message feature turned on, because usually they are sent by privat message.
Your layouts are lovely!

Marion

Sim Rosana, há um desafio geralmente cada semana, mas este mês onde se realize para o mês. E sim se você participar e afixar uma disposição você receberá um presente. Seja certo que você tem sua característica da mensagem do privat girada sobre, porque são emitidos geralmente pela mensagem do privat. Suas disposições são encantadoras!

wendy

Yes Wendy, for this challenge you must use the elements and backgrounds that Julie provided for us. You can change the layout around, you can duplicate things, you can go to the special effects tab in your program and change color or do what ever you want with it, but you can only use the items Julie gave us. With exception of the letter "N" and also you can add journaling.

Hope this helps you out.
