February Blog Challenge!

Happy February, everyone.  I don't know about you but my January FLEW past!  Rumor has it that the groundhog did not see its shadow - bummer for those of you hoping to escape snow and cold sooner rather than later.  So if you're looking for a way to pass the time until the weather is more to your liking or if you just love Liz's templates (like me), check out this month's template challenge.

Download Expired.

One of things I really love about this template is its versatility.  Don't get me wrong - all of Liz's templates are really easy to use, either just as they are or changed up a bit to suite your style. Take a look at how different some of our inspirational layouts look!

This LO is by Liz and uses the original template that inspired our freebie!
The kit is a retired Faith True Originals kit

by Liz
(using Moments Like This by Sugary Fancy Designs)

by Rebecca
(using mle Card's Birthday Bash)

 
by Jenn
(using Daredevil by Micheline Martin & Misty Maredo, Fantastic Plastic by Amy Stoffel,  and Essentials: Primary by Stolen Moments Designs.  Fonts are 1942 Report and AMH Outlines)



by me, Kimberley
(using diptych by Paislee Press, Chelsea Market by Amy Wolff,  and Vintage Valentine by Tracie Stroud.
Font (on date) is 1942 Report)
See what I mean by really diverse looks from one gorgeous template?  It's like getting many templates for the fantastic price (FREE) of one!!!

Before I give you the rules of our challenge, I would like to show you our winner from January's challenge.  Our random winner is AmieN1!!!!!  Hers is a lovely tribute page to her Nanny.  

You can leave her some gallery love right here!
Finally.....

The Blog Challenge Rules (and fine print!):  
  1. Use the featured template (above) to create a layout or hybrid project.  Feel free to modify the template but make certain we can still recognize it as a version of the original.  
  2. Upload your completed layout in the Scrapping with Liz gallery at Scrap Orchard HERE or a photo sharing site of your choice. (Please do not upload to a site that will require me to register in order to view the layout.  Use either the Scrapping with Liz gallery or someplace such as Photobucket or TinyPic to host your layout)
  3. Come back to this blog post and leave a comment with a link to your completed layout BY February 28, 2013
  4. Winner of the $5 coupon will be chosen and announced the first Tuesday in February!  Non-winning participants will receive a participation prize so remember to leave us a way to reach you when you link your layouts!
Happy Scrapping!

Thanks for the template, I really love it! It worked perfectly rotated for my photos, because while I love these photos, some of them aren't exactly flattering, so it was nice to have the smaller spaces.

I love the feel of this template. I really like the angle, however, when I was doing this page, it just felt better to straighten it out.
