Eek, my page is one of your examples! Thank you smiley And thanks for another fun challenge!

I'm not sure I am doing this right... but I just uploaded my very first digiscrap page! I love using b/w photos... I tried something new and made a photo black and white and then added back in the color on just parts of it like the flowers and her eyes. The page is quite simple (I used a Quick Page) but I'm pretty new to it. I will have to try some of your templates soon!

Thanks to Melouise, I got this edited to is smaller smiley You can also see this in my gallery HERE

I love this challenge smiley

Hi @Kris,

Lovely layout! You can enter the width and height when you enter the image url (click the left icon). I use 600x600 for posting in the forums.
Don't forget to paste the link to your layout in the gallery too (just go to your page in the gallery and copy and paste the url from your browser).

btw, are you sure you're just starting? That's a stunning page for a newbie!

Taking pictures of a 3 year old is a challenge in itself. This night I asked her to make funny faces on purpose and we both had a lot of fun! I already decided to use these pictures in black&white, when I saw this challenge. I rarely use orange and green on a layout, so that was quite a challenge too!

Take a look in the gallery and here too:

Thank you Melouise! Should I delete my post in the challenge and reupload and choose 600px? I tried to go in to edit it, but I didn't see where I can change the size now that it's there. Oops! NEVERMIND... I figured it out, LOL!

And... yes I am a beginner. I used a "Quick Page" layout and all I did was plug in my pictures, played with the b/w and added a sentiment smiley I hope that's not considered cheating?? LOL. I can remove it if it is. Thanks for your help!!

WOW, what a gorgeous layout, photos, and technique Melouise! smiley

@Kris: I don't think it would be considered "cheating" especially since I think Marisa was/is trying to challenge you guys to use b&w photos which you did. smiley But... I'm sure she will let you know when she returns home from vacation. They will be gone for about another 2 weeks with very limited (if any at all) internet access, so don't fret if you don't hear anything for a bit. smiley

I really enjoy this challenge, I love B&W pics.

Here is thelink

And here is my layout. Hope you guys like it!

Here is mine smiley Link

My B&W layout is now (way before the deadline!) in the Gallery. It was fun to make as I decided to use a minimum of colour, and felt a little restricted to start with. But it ended up being something I could get addicted to smiley

Here it is:


i really enjoyed this! you can see mine here

I tried to copy my layout into the forum, but it didn't wok smiley But did tag it, so it is on my gallery

Edit: Caryn, I just put your layout on this thread. You all can also see it here - Hugs, Lórien

I have to admit something: I never, ever, used a Black and white picture on a layout. Take a look on my gallery to see the details smiley

I Had a lot of fun with this challenge! And this is my result:

I loved this challenge since my daughter's shirt in these photos is such an awful color. Yea! I don't have to look at that anymore!

Photo uploaded here

Here is my contribution to the challenge...I guess I experimented more with the photos then with the layout but it's about b&w right smiley.
Find it here.

Very pretty Leticia. I have a soft spot for dandelions!

Thank you so much Lórien smiley <hugs>

I had fun with this challenge, but had a hard time picking which photos to use. This is what I finally came up with.

I started this challenge on Day 1, then wanted to work on a different layout. Didn't happen because of term report cards. sigh!

Here's the link to my gallery. (gotta upload more!)

Really great layouts everyone! There's still a few more days if you haven't uploaded your layout yet!

Here's my contribution:

Image is linked ...

@Betsy: I fixed the size for you.

To get the right size, just add in the dimensions under the URL. Something like 600x600 is good for this forum.

Here is my entry. Also in my gallery HERE

Thanks Marisa!

Here's mine:

Loving all of the submissions. I adore black and white photography! Here's my submission. smiley
