    Happy July everyone!!!!! I was picked to do another challenge for all of ya...I am hoping you enjoy this one, including my freebie...<wink>

    This time I want you to Design with White..Um....Think of this: A plain white background is the little black dress of scrapbook pages...Always simple and elegant. When I'm lost (which happens a lot these and not too sure on what to use as a background for a layout, I use white... Why not, right? It is always staring you in the face...LOL...

    So with that said, here is your challenge... If you choose to accept it...

    Make a layout using a white background.
    Use at least two items from my freebie
    (download is available below). You may use other items found in our forum here at MAX... Please credit those special people in the gallery if using someone else's items.

    Simple enough? Yeah well, I was planning you to think that, so here is a twist...LOL...You don't get off that easy...

    When adding your photo, don't use the original, turn it into a work of art..Try using different techniques like water color, sepia, etc, omg there is so many to try...You will have fun experimenting, trust me...Trying new things is exciting...<wink>

    Upload your layouts to the gallery and post the link or image here so we can all see...

    BUT WAIT!!!!!! I'm not finished yet!! LOL...There will be a contest held at the end of the month. I will get all the layouts you submitted together, and have you secretly judge on them and the top three will win a FREE kit from my store..Your choice the more you make, the more chances you have...

    So...Um... what are you still doing here? Upload your freebie and start scrappin'! Oh and btw, ignore the file name, I mispelled it...LOL((HUGS)) and enjoy...Can't wait to see what you all can come up with..hehe

            WOW! Kazr, what a great effect! That came out so cool! Hope I get to work on this when I get back off vacation!

            In case I go missing call Moonlightpearl, Granny, twpclerk or Smile! Then have them call Crops because we're probably together at the Yoville Races!

                          Gym meet

                          This was before I had a digital camera and was the only photo from that day that turned out because it was so dark and they were all moving constantly. Thanks for the freebies, Wolvsie! I hope you don't mind that I changed the color just a bit darker.

                            The girls were being frightful, didn't want to agree to anything and were doing the "she touched me Mum" style behaviour. All I wanted were some pics of them together. They couldn't decide if they loved or hated each other at this point. They get on most of the time, it was just one of those days....... Used film grain to alter the photos.
                            Thanks for the freebies. the frames are mine that were posted to the embellishment forum the other day. The Ficifolia flowers and gumnuts fitted the colour scheme very well I thought. Will try to do another one at some point if get the chance.
                            All the best from Nanny Bernie.
