View Full Version : August 2012 GDS -Junkie- Challenge

08-01-2012, 11:26 AM

Are you hooked on GDS like me? Well, have I got a challenge for you! :wink:

For this challenge, you can use your photos and fonts, but... the rest must be 100% GDS product.

It does not have to be all from the same kit, nor the same designer. Just make sure you give credit to the designer(s) when you post your layout in the gallery.

Additional info:

(1) Your layout can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the July Scrapin’ 7 Challenge Thread
(3) Use of GDS products is mandatory for this challenge.
(4) Load your GDS-junkie-layout in the GDS Junkie Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=1023)
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!

This challenge runs through August 31, 2012!

And... for participating, you'll receive a prize!

I can't wait to see what you create!!

What a challenge to chose one kit to feature.... Yeh, I know you can mix kits, but I prefer to use one most of the time.

2 of my daughters were belly dancers for several years... so when I saw Oriental Dreams by Stefairy, I knew it would be a kit I would use many times. This is my youngest daughter in my favorite photo of her in her costume. It was taken in Cario, Egypt while she was posing for a famous Egyptian artist - MonsourA - so he could sketch her. I was taking art classes from him so that is how this all came to be. We lived there for 3 of the most interesting and challenging years of our lives.

Sorry, bit oversized!
I always have trouble finding the right size...

I have resized your lovely layout for you. The size that we use for our layouts is generally 600 x 600 at 72 dpi, and if you 'save for web and devices', if you have PS or PSE, then it keeps the best quality at the lowest size of file.

What a super layout! And thank you for participating!
