    Default OCTOBER 2007 Designer Challenge

    LOL! Please excuse Julie...yes, she typed September -- we'll give her a break...some of us know what pregnancy can do to the brain.

    Welcome to the Designer’s Challenge for the month of October 2007!

    Instead of the usual autumn or Halloween themed layouts, we’re going to do something a little different. We are going to do layouts with a “cause” or “awareness” or “unusual/unique holiday” theme - but NOT Halloween or autumn related. For instance, October is….

    Family History Month
    National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
    Domestic Violence Awareness Month
    National Dental Hygiene Month
    National Arts & Humanities Month
    National Work & Family Month
    National Car Care Month
    National Disability Employment Awareness Month
    National Popcorn Poppin’ Month

    Also, we recognize the following in October:

    Make A Difference Day (Oct. 27)
    National Folk Festival (Oct. 12-14)
    Columbus Day (Oct. 12)
    Fire Prevention Week (Oct 7-13)

    The above are just to name a few and give you ideas. If you Google the words “October is” you will get 881,000,000 results; but you can narrow it down by using the terms “October is National” and you only get 548,000,000 results. Check out holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/october.htm for some bizarre and unique holidays.

    So, your challenge requirements are:

    1. Find a cause, awareness or unusual/unique holiday (NOT autumn or Halloween) theme for your layout. Yes, you may pick one that is near and dear to your own heart and important to you. But it MUST be recognized IN the month of OCTOBER. And yes, by all means, we want to see causes and unique holidays from around the world, wherever our SBM members live!

    2. You must use AT LEAST FOUR (4) of the colors in the swatch and at least FOUR (4) of the freebies that I have provided (yes, you may use all of the freebies and all of the colors if you desire). You are to stick to the colors that the freebies are - meaning do NOT re-color them…the usual re-sizing, etc. is okay. You may use any other elements in your layout that you like (even those made by you), but you must adhere to the COLOR and FREEBIES requirements. (Color codes are provided on the swatch. The “HSL” means hue/saturation/lightness.)

    3. Make your layout in ANY size that you prefer. You are not limited to only one layout…make as many as you want.

    4. Upload your layout to this thread PLUS -- EITHER the extra elements that you made to go with it, OR a template of it to share with everyone (yes, you can provide both elements and template if you want, but it’s not required…one or the other is fine).


    Remember to stick with the colors in the swatch and do not re-color the freebies. By the time the end of the month gets here, this ought to be a really colorful thread! So let’s see all the colors of the world! Have fun and enjoy your freebies!

    If you have any problems or questions, just give a holler!

    Freebie kit consists of: 1 600x600 paper (300 dpi), 1 square scalloped-edge vellum, 3 stars of different designs , 1 journaling element, and 1tag. Color swatch included.

    Yep, you heard right! The fellow who came up with that one, Dan Glickman, was born and raised here in Kansas and is well-known in the USA (you can Google his name and see the specifics...way too many to talk about here ).

    Wow this challenge is different. I think that it will be lots of fun to see what everyone comes up with. It sounds kinda cool and I love the colors-so that's half the battle.
