View Full Version : April's Mid-Month Challenge - Again

For Aprilís Mid-Month Challenge, I thought it would be fun to do a scraplift with a twist.
When I first started digital scrapbooking, I would visit other sites and save copies of layouts that caught my eye. This particular layout caught my eye first because of the colors, and second because of the adorable picture. It is entitled The Pout Ė by okbluesdesigns. I found it in the scrap-book bytes gallery.

Autisticwonder was gracious enough to take this layout and scraplift it for us. She made it into a mask for all of us to use here at SBM.

Your mission, if you should choose to accept it, is to download and use Autisticwonderís mask and make your layout, upload it to the gallery, and post a link to your finished product here in this thread. You are able to add or subtract anything from the mask that you wish. It will be fun to see how one layout can look so different when done by different people. Happy Scrapping!

This is the link to my April Mid-month challenge. It is a picture of my sister and father in Florida. My sister was able to go and visit for a week. Lucky her! I love this mask. Thanks Autisticwonder!

and here is my template. The Hearts are from Angelwithin's "Upon Reflection" kit. The rest is mine other than using a shape by "Chastain" which I think was from "Harry's Filters".

It tickles me pink that everyone is having fun with Autisticwonders mask. This month's mid-month challenge wouldn't have been possible without her! She made a couple of them for me - so we will be able to do this again another month. I'm also open for suggestions if anyone has any ideas! You can post them here, or PM me.

Am I wrong???? Did you post this on the wrong thread? This looks like the April Challenge rather than the MID MONTH April Challenge. I love it! Thanks a bunch! You've been keeping me busy with different ideas for the April Challenge! Thanks buddy!

My link to the layout:

http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=10911&cat=500&ppuser=2066

This is my neice Joanna and her husband Brian on their Honeymoon in Hawaii. The flowers in the center were from the "Believe in Yourself" kit in the embellishments (under the red heart). The swirl at the bottom was a brush. The mirror I made using a brush for the frame then filled it with a layer style. I posted it a while back in the embellishment forum. The flowers around the picture were the white ones I posted. I Just colored them. The vine the flowers are on is from the template. I made the paper and the frame. I think I already posted them, but if you want them and don't see them let me know.

Here's the template:

You ladies are doing a wonderful job with this mask. Julie I like your use of color and the belt across.

Autisticwonder, I absolutely love your masks. I am new to digital scrapbooking, so I still have a hard time putting my pages together. But with your mask I am able to put pages together quickly. Someone on another thread mention the ability to turn them--how do you do that?

TIA

I love how you turned the mask! These look great. Look at the curls on that beautiful little girl. She's a cutie. I see your starting her doing laundry at a young age. LOL Wish I would have trained mine to do their laundry. Then it would have given me more time to scrap. Ha Ha

After the template loads to a blank page, I just left clicked at the top left corner and drug my cursor down over the tempalte to the bottom right corner and let go of the mouse button. This selected everything in the template. Then just click on the little box at one of the corners and spin it the way you would any element. Let me know if you run into any difficulty.

thanks again donna for the mask - you are so great at those! I started out making my quick clicks but did not have the passion and vision for them that you do - I am so glad you are doing those because it will really revolutionize the way newbies (and oldies!) use this program!

thanks again for your generosity in sharing with us!:)

Okay, I tried it several times with no success. Then I tried it with the ctrl key pressed and it worked like a charm. Thanks!

It's all Spanielmom's idea to do everything in this challenge..She just asked for my help in making a MASK TEMPLATE for everyone to use from a picture she had of a layout..So I make the MASKS but she gives me the template for me to work on!! Hope that answers your question!!

WOWOWOW to everyone for all the COOL templates..WHAT a SUPER new look with the turning of the picture!! SO IMAGINATIVE!!

Winnie-I Love this forum tooo! I love your story about your daughter! We are just as happy to have you here on the forum tooo!! Wonder does such great work on the masks. I never worked with masks before this forum, and now I can't live without them--they are so awesome!! Spaniel has the same name as me so I can't help but love her:):) So crops when you say thanks to Paula I have to figure out who you are talking about:) I really do know you mean spaniel because she is the creator of these challenges:) But I do like to see my name in print anyways.

Thank you for the template ..... I'm trying to get a dvd ready for Mothers day and I'm starting to get brain rot. I still had trouble with this though. The colours were a pain in the rear and it took me ages to work it out. Think I managed it finally.

Lady Muck (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=11244&cat=1550)

My mum used to call me Lady muck when I sat in this position. It made me look like expected someone to wait on me hand n foot. LOL. And guess what, my daughter does it to .... teehee

Thought I'd try out the photo within a photo technique. I like the look.

I'm bringing this back to the front because the gallery pic disappeared before I had a chance to upload the 2'nd one.

Besides, I went on a scanning frenzie last night....... I scanned 75 pics, mainly left over from my daughter's wedding so be prepared. I need to get her album completed. :)
