    Diana, you are so sweet....So where is my red carpet? lol...((HUGS))

    Ok, first of all, let me tell you that I had a massive brain misfunction, and titled everything Scrappin' Challnge 15....But as you can see, that is not what this challnge is...LMBO! I was a head of myself...and I apologize...with everything going on, I guess my signals got crossed up there in my funky and bulky thing above my shoulders...LOL...Anywho....It is not for that challnge, but should be used for this Designer Challenge...<wink> Hope I am not confusing anyone...LOL...

    Now with that out of the way....here is your challnge....We will be playing with color...Hue and saturation are the key to making pretty layouts...Right? So let's practice doing some more of that...Shall we? <wink>

    First, download the file link below...(It will go directly into your SBM program when clicking on the link from 4shared)...Here is the preview....


    *The ONLY thing you can use are these 5 papers...Recolor them to match the color swatch attached..


    *Your laout must consist of (at least) 2 of these papers and (at least) 4 elements MADE FROM THESE PAPERS. (Make elements from the papers using shapes)
    *Recolor them by using the hue and saturation option. Play around with it to get the right colors to match the swatch provided..You MAY go a little lighter or darker in color...But not so dramatic that it won't match...
    *Please offer at least 2 of the elements or papers you make...Offer everything if you like...We all LOVE freebies...<wink>
    *Your layout must have one or more photo's....
    *Journaling and a title is optional..
    *Upload your layout to the designer thread in the gallery and then post it here for all to see...
    *Upload your free stuff here too...When making an element, right click it and save as .png , make sure you save it somewhere on your computer so you can find it. If there are a group of pieces together for oone element, make sure you group all the layers before saving it...Papers are saved as .jpeg...


    I will be offering a surprise to those that participate...AND...at the end of the month, I will be picking 3 of you to win ONE free kit (of your choice) from my store...So the more you make, the better your chances...

    By the time the end of the month rolls around...All of us should have a HUGE kit with the freebies you provide...Plus, we are all learning, having fun and sharing some inspiration for others...((HUGS))

    Here's my first attempt at color matching with this very challenging Challenge. Thanks Wolvsie for such a great challenge. I'll find out how color challenged I am after this won't I?

    I used every paper in this challenge. I made my elements from Donna Thomas's wonderful Shapes packs, Grab Bag, Deco Circles and Christmas Ornament Globes. Alll of those kits can be found in the Store. I also used the Dec Challenge Shape from Wendy Gibson for my background.

    Question

    Hi

    I am unable to load this file. It has an unknown file extension and SBM doesn't recognize it. I don't think its anything to do with Windows 7, I use XP on both my desktop and my laptop. Help anyone?

    Blessings - FS xx

    Hi

    My techie husband has just told me the downloaded file is missing an extension.

    As a workaround, you can just give this an extension of dot zip ( .zip). This will not automatically install the files, but will allow you to unzip the files (double click the file) and put them in your SBM folders. We did try putting in the extension dot exe but this didn't work.

    Hope this helps.
