August Countdown Challenge

Postby Sandi0805 » Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:39 pm

I have decided to bring back the countdown challenge.  Many of you may remember it from the years ago.  Each month I will list items and the quantity of each item that is needed on your layout.  You may do a one or two page layout if you wish.  You may add other items on your layout that are not on the list.  PM me or post to this thread if you have any questions.

I chose this layout of mine for the example of this month's countdown challenge.  


 1 - picture or a one word title (your choice) but if you have both you will get an extra entry
 2 - bling flourishes
 3 - brads (center of flowers and on V of the banner)
 4 - flowers ( I have 3 of them layered and 1 single  - you can do the same or have them individually)
 5 - paper  (can be a mix of pattern or cardstock)

Bonus entry:  Scraplift one of my layouts.  Must show what layout you lift.
                       If you use both 1 picture and a 1 word title.

Here are the rules:  We gotta have them.

1.  Must be new.  Layouts only.  Can be paper or digital.
2.  Must post to this thread.  No gallery spot.
3.  Must be posted to this thread by 11:59pm  August 31, 2017.
4.  Multiple entries allowed, but limit of three.
5.  May combine with one other challenge that allows combining.  
6.  A 2 page layout will count as one entry and items can be on one page only or on both.
7.  You must list your items to be counted in the drawing for a gift card.

Can't wait to see what everyone creates this month

I combined with manufacturer.  I lifted Sandi.  I also used one word title and one picture. I couldn't find any bling flourishes in my stash so I just used two green and silver ones.  I have 3 brads and 4 flowers.  Two blue ones are behind the white ones.

2 - bling flourishes (pearl ones corner of photo)
3 - Brads,  1 light green gem brad to "hold" the key, a pink one for the date banner, and a white one in the flourish metal embellishment, by the flowers.
4 - flowers, 3 at picture bottom corner and 1 at top corner.
5 - 5 different papers, the phot mat is wood pattern paper , mix of cardstock & PP
