Thanks to Granny for this month's "picnic" themed kit.

This month's challenge(s):

1. Do a layout of a different size than you normally do and upload the template for us here.
2. Make matching elements
3. For designers, those learning to design: Let's focus this month on learning to make BOWS AND RIBBONS. Do some tutorial searching, experiment with your program.

Here's the kit:

The link doesn't work for me. I don't know if it uploaded yet, but it won't let me go there. It tells me I don't have permission to few that page.:confused:

Me too Marion! Maybe they don't like us anymore so they have banned us!!! LOL..... Or maybe the link is just messed up :)

Thanks Granny these are great and love the color swatch too. For those of you having problems have you tried cleaning your puter using scan disk? I know sometime when I have this problem and do that and it usually does the trick. It will be in a folder picknic embellishments. Hope this helps.

Great job, Marion! I love them critters. Can't ever kill one. They are all over my place and I go into contorsion to avoid killing them.

Thank you for a beautiful background page!

The food in my layout was given by someone on SBM. Please Forgive me if I made a mistake by putting it in the template. :(

crops2dawn

Getting the whip out...... bad bad bad!!! LOL I think those might be from Binkey!!! But hey I could be wrong so dont quote me on that!
Onie the layout is SUPER COOL! Love it!!!!:)

pkdoll
06-01-2007, 08:43 PM
WOW! Onie you are so fast!! It is a very nice LO!

Crops-bring out the buttered popcorn so we can enjoy this show---I think it will last one month!! Hmmmm! What do you think?? Better have some root beer to go with the popcorn.

Marion
06-01-2007, 08:55 PM
Food? What food?

Love your layout!

sacannon
06-01-2007, 09:49 PM
Wow, that was fast Onie, Great Job. Great Kit, and great extra papers too. Hope I get a change to do this challenge!

juliehclark

Enjoy!

Marion
06-01-2007, 10:26 PM

Granny

This one looks like fun - food, food, food. At least picnics are better than Christmas holiday eating - we do get exercise in the summer, right?

Thanks Julie, Granny, Marion and Onie.

Onie, you need to slow down though. Remember, some of us are really old, peg-legged, walkers, canes, not to mention overloaded slow brains.

crops2dawn
06-02-2007, 10:11 AM
Onieeeeeeeeee, slow down girl.... you wont have any steam left for the rest of the month! LOL
Julie thanks for that pinching idea, I'm gonna have to play with that!(Hey Granny come here I want to see if I got this pinching thing down right) LOL That ribbon is awesome!!
Marion those papers are soooooo neat! Love em!!
Doll, I have plenty of popcorn to last a year!!! You just take care of the rootbear ok> hahaha

OnieRN
06-02-2007, 10:14 AM
:( I'll slow down......... hehehe. To be honest, I just figured out how to use the swatch to make that background. That was a first for me. I was going to wait until you creative ones make some papers and embellishments. I wanted something festive looking. I have to ask, was I the last person to figure out to save the swatch and bring it in as the background? I love picnics and these colors are awesome. We've had such soft pretty colors lately, this is nice! OK, so with picnics, what else do we need...... a basket, flies, bottle or wine, oh and yes a big watermelon.......... hint hint hint to your designers. :D

Marion
06-02-2007, 12:03 PM
Did you say watermelon?

Here is some...

http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/data/500/MMW_June-Challenge_Watermelon-000-Page-1_528_x_528_.jpg

Tablecloth is Granny's . Watermelon was from a template loaded up to SBM long time ago. Cute kid in the picture is mine!

Here is mine, I used the papers from Julie, TY. I think I used all embies to. This one I liked very much. Was alot of fun!:D

ughhhhh, it won't let me upload the template, will try again a little later. It did let me attach the JPEG.

Granny
06-02-2007, 01:54 PM
Wow, girls, what great layouts and goodies you're making. It's awesome.

Chucks, Onie, you shamed me into sharing the bottle of wine I made for the original kit. If you look close enough, you will see the label is really my little Candy when she was a baby. Pretties mutt you ever saw.

Enjoy, but don't get blasted with it!

:p

ps: Click to view, then right click and save as png.

Granny
06-02-2007, 02:00 PM
Julie, do you use PSP? I got version 8. Do you use a an outside filter, don't remember that one. Is there a tut outhere somewhere?

Thanks, kid!

;)

OnieRN
06-02-2007, 03:44 PM
Oh Marion, I love watermelon! My favorite fruit! Now, Granny, what kind of wine is that???? :D

I never thought of using the paper plate as a frame! Good Grief, was a simple idea and I missed it! Instead, I looked for food to put on it........lol This is a cute template!!! Just in time for the 4th of July!!!! :D

bluevelvet
06-02-2007, 03:48 PM
Not sure what to do, SBM is telling me my template for the picnic challange is to big. Anyone:confused: have any ideas of what I need to do?

autisticwonder
06-02-2007, 03:49 PM
WOW, GUYS..you are INCREDIBLE!! Love the ants!! I'm really starting to get into these colors now!! THANKS!!

OnieRN
06-02-2007, 03:53 PM
I'm not a good one to help with this but I know if you go back to your program and check on the box to remove the pic, that will shrink your size. Also, you might go and push in your embellishments a little to shrink them a tate.

The template can be 5.0 in size. Look at how big it says it is. That will give you an idea on how much you need to shrink it.

It said the file was over 6.0 in size I did make it a 12x12 should I make it like an 8x8 and then try it? thanks

crops2dawn
06-02-2007, 04:16 PM
These layouts are amazing!!!! Its gonna be a fun picnic book by the end of summer!!!
Hey blue, ya gotta get it under 5.0, or it wont let ya upload it! Making 8x8 will work and see if any further you have to go! If ya do make your stuff smaller. it can be done, we all have had this WONDERFUL problem in the beginning!

bluevelvet
06-02-2007, 04:23 PM
Whew,,,,,,,,,,,,,, got it finally had to make it 8x8 and then optimize the embelishments.....:eek:

OnieRN
06-02-2007, 04:25 PM
Just change the size to 8x8 and adjust accordingly. I'm sure that will do it! Crops is right...... we've all had that happen to us before, LOL It can be frustrating trying to get it shrunk down but yours will probably be easy by changing the size.

:D

crops2dawn
06-02-2007, 04:25 PM
GREAT JOB BLUE!!! I knew ya could do it!!!!:D

Here is the link to my layout.

Finally after about 5 times of ajusting sizes, here is the template.

The paper plate, fork and fly swatter were from the kit. The grass was paper from Julie, but I erased part of the top edge for the grass effect. The rest is mine. I used a bunch of various brushes for effects. I also used some effects within SBM after I loaded some items.

sacannon
06-12-2007, 10:11 AM
Here is some of the items I used.

sacannon
06-12-2007, 10:14 AM
Here is some more.

sacannon
06-12-2007, 10:17 AM
Here is the rest from my layout. The table cloth I uploaded earlier, but I altered the color within SBM for this.

sacannon
06-12-2007, 10:23 AM
Here are some extra papers, and I added Julie's paper that I erased part of the top edge from.

sacannon
06-12-2007, 10:28 AM
Ok, I think that's it. (My pear didn't come out the greatest, but it is partially hidden in the basket, so you don't really see it). The apple and bannana's I posted before, but re-posted so you wouldn't have to look for them. (If you wanted them)

This will probably be the last I do untill I get back from vacation. We will be leaving on Saturday and will be gone for about two weeks.

Sue that is a great LO! How did you get the picture to look like it was part of the whole thing? What a nice effect. I love it!!

I started with the picture and worked around it.

Sorry the answer is late, just got back from vacation yesterday.
