Hi, Ladies... Bright Eyes here. I am the hostess for the January Font Challenge.


Our font for this month is KingThings Christmas2 by da Font. You can find it HERE (http://www.dafont.com/kingthings-christmas.font).

Really like the way the letters are tucked into the snowdrifts with snowflakes around them.

The rules for the challenge

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the January Scrappin' 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Font Challenge Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=641)
(5) Come back here and post the image of the page you created, and link it to your page in the gallery so we can all leave you some love!

I will have a bonus for all who particiapte in this challenge by posting and linking their creations here. Please be sure to credit the designer's kit/s when you post to the gallery.

This challenge runs through January 31.

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html)

Also... here's (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html)how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Renee, that is a fantastic photo. And just realized you did a blended photo behind and to the side of the framed one... Cool!! Yes, that font is right for a snow scene page. So glad you played along with us this month.

Beautiful fantasy scene, Marya! Neat idea on the multi-colored title.
You need to re-do the link under your photo... it leads to page 1 of this thread - not to the gallery where your photo is. Want everyone to be able to find easily so they can leave some love. Thanks for joining us this month.

Here is one from me. I used the font to date my photo ( hope thats enough - if not just let me know and I'll make another layout)
I used Keystone Scraps - Whiling away winter. (https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_228&products_id=12928&zenid=b8f743d16f5ee0383e0a43bfa5c7fa59)

Kristy, can barely see the date or the font used... but that is okay. You did use the font somewhere on the layout. Maybe next month you can make the featured font larger so we can see it... like in the title or journaling large enough to read. Oh, what a cute photo!!! :biggrin: We have been doing that lately to keep the toes warm. Brrrr... winter weather has arrived so the fireplace is wonderful to help warm us up!! :wink:

Thanks for joining in this month. Think you and the others will like next month's font...

Sorry It looked bigger when I was making it, I tried using it for the title but it just didn't look right. Thanks for saying its ok though :)

Ingrid... that is quite a wintery view out your window. Love how nice the font goes with your page. Wow... you must be high up in an apartment to see such a long line of buildings down the street. Looks cold and snowy.
Great layout. So happy you could join us this month.

Tricia, what a darling baby all bundled up for the cold weather. Love the way you laid the page out with the oval photo on one side and the blended photo on the other. Great page. Thanks for playing with us this month.

Yes, my apartment is on the 13th floor and I have quite a view over Rotterdam. I often think of it as a painting that changes every day ;-)

Thank you for this challenge!
