Each day through our crop I will post a new set of directions in the morning. As you complete each step, please post it here. Prize to be announced.
Friday Step #1: Gather and place 3 papers on your Layout. At least one should be a patterned paper. Choose 3 pictures (DO NOT PLACE THEM YET) Attach your 3 papers together as they will not be moved anymore.
Saturday Step #2: Saturday: Mat/frame one photo and place it in the bottom left of your layout. Place the other two photos around it. Cluster the three photos together with a ribbon!
Sunday Step #3: Add 7 embelishments somewhere on your layout. All 7 can be the same or different.
Monday Step #4: Add a title and journaling.

Are we supposed to post step by step pictures for this challenge? I'm about to pick out my papers (digital)...just wondering!
I picked out my photos and 2/3 papers. I have to get to bed, I can't begin to search for the patterned paper I'll use. But I'll pick it and photograph before I look at this thread tomorrow so that I'm not biased by the next step. Maybw you could wait a bit before posting the next step for anyone who didn't see this challenge today? I don't know how many steps you have though, so do what makes sense.

Well, here's mine so far...just realized that I didn't resize those papers correctly (to be the same as I wanted). Anyway! I picked out my pictures but didn't upload them yet.
When I try to preview this the picture isn't showing up. I'll try again...
eta...ugh, it is almost 1 am and I guess my brain is too fried. I have a green background, polka dotted pattern paper, and brown solid paper. Don't know why it won't show up.
Had a little difficulty with finding a digital ribbon to put on these!
And hope it wasn't "illegal" to resize my photos...I don't think I could have made them fit with the ribbon otherwise!
Three ribbons + three staples + one bird = 7

I flipped my papers as I didn't want my photos on the same side as the strips of paper. Actually tore my background paper moving it so had to use the other side. Ay yi yi
I have to say, I'm not a fan of using so many embellishments. The butterfly embellishment came from the scrapbook train last year.
Daddy took Natalie for a haircut, suggesting she get a “Dora haircut”. I quickly jumped in, showing Natalie a picture of the “new” teenage Dora, who has MUCH longer hair than the “old” Dora. I was very relieved when Natalie came home with shoulder length hair, and she ran around telling everyone she got a “new Dora” haircut.
