Weekly Challenge - Template - Deadline March 23

Thanks everyone for participating! I've given you all 10 community points. And congrats to our random winner Andrea K. Be sure to check out all the layouts and leave some love!


I don't know what happened to me on Thursday, but I completely forgot to post a new challenge. No wait, I do know what happened. Jordan bought the new SimCity game and I decided to take the afternoon off...

Anyway, there was some interest in a template challenge, so I thought we'd go for that. Here's the template for this challenge:

Important Details

Due Date: March 23, 2013 noon (UTC/GMT +3 hours)

Tag: challenge template march 2013
Make sure you use this tag exactly, so we can browse easily through the gallery and see all the submissions, and so you can get your points. Please only tag one layout.

See basic challenge rules here.

Check out finished and entered layouts here.

This is probably a silly question, but I've never participated in a challenge like this one. When we do our layout are we limited to exactly what we see...a background, one picture, a title and 3-5 elements/papers? Or are we allowed more elements as long as we stay with the basic template?

The template is just a jumping off point. Feel free to change it however you like.

this looks like a lot of fun and definitely 'challenging'!! smiley

Lovely Template.... Cannot wait to start....

The template looks like a good one
Cindy--way to get the ball rolling this week. Your choice of papers and embellishments really complement your photo. Nice work

I used the Footsteps kit.

Great layout cindy. Love the purple.

Emily, liked the effect you gave to your photo. Layout is neat also.

Here's mine:

Thank you so much, Sarah and Cynthia! smiley

I never used a template before.. normally i put the elements and photos in the place that just feels right. Now the places were already defined. This was a new experience.. smiley

Thank you Lorien, Isa, Sarah, Lisa, & Dianna

Andrea, Nice job for your first layout. Love how you brought out the colors in the picture.

Here is my entry

Fun challenge, my layout is already on the gallery:

I needed to create another cluster in a place where there werent any because my picture had a failure on that spot that I needed to crop. It was taken in a very messy place (ooops!)

My sister & little me

I just love the LO`s that were made.....

What a precious photo!

Fun seeing the unique interpretations of the template

I've never used a template before, but I'm going to try! Later ... because my computer time is up.

Hoo boy was this ever hard. I knew the photo I wanted to use, because it was a single photo and I couldn't decide what to do with it on my own. I usually like a grouping. Then, the colors in the photo were perfect for some of the colors from the Balkans kit ... but I wasn't happy with any of the papers as a background! Well, I finally picked the one I like best, but I might download some more of the Balkans papers and play with others just to see.

Nice rendition, Andrea. I like the dark background and the elements are perfect for the photo.

Lovely layout, Nicole. And a sweet photo also.

My entry for the template challenge. It was a true challenge for me to work around a pre-defined layout but a learning experience.
