August Size Matters Challenge Winner

Postby JillinIN » Fri Aug 04, 2017 11:38 am

The winner is number 5 - Tammey!!
Congratulations!! Your gift card is on its way!


This is called the Size Matters Challenge because it will require something big or small or a combination of both.
There may or may not be a twist each month.

This month's challenge is a big pocket. It can look like an actual pocket or be pp or cardstock that forms a pocket across your page. These are great to put cards or memorabilia in. You can put photos on the pocket or decorate it any way you like.

I'll try to get an example up soon. It will probably be toward the end of next week. Work is crazy right now. I'm the only one in my office and doing the work of three people!!

 Here are the rules:
•You may combine with ONE other August challenge that allows combining.
•Multiple entries are allowed. But please limit it to 3.
•For layouts only- Paper or digi, Must be new.
•Due Date: LAST DAY OF  August, 11:59 PM EST
•There will be a random drawing for a $5 ACOT GC  from all participants who have completed the challenge.

Participants:
1. Lissahope26
2. Suewhoo372
3. Donna_Coughlin
4. Retiree3
5. Tammey
6. Retiree3 - second submission
7. Tammey - second submission

The big pocket has all kinds of memorabilia from my daughter's birth including cards.  The hearts, ribbon and diaper are from her shower.

Hi Jill-- this may not be a BIG enough pocket...  but it is a card envelope and I have my journaling on the the little banner sticking out.

This is beautiful! I love the little banner on the pocket and the glitz and the way you carried the confetti theme through the page. Such a beautiful fur baby!! Thanks for doing my challenge!

I love this Melissa. It reminds me of a Bo Bunny ephemera pack with so many cool things tucked in and the more you look the more you see. That's such a sweet photo. Awesome page! Thanks for doing my challenge.

 I love this. It kind of looks like a double pocket with the photo and the bingo cards tucked behind the paper strip. I love all the embellies and the bling. Thank you for doing my challenge.
