July mini- challenge

okay well since I have no ideas on challenges (plus I'm newer and have no idea what you've already done) I decided to look online at other challenges...found this "Alphabet Fun" one... not sure I can post directly but here is a link.... (it's down one.... number 17)

http://www.allisonorthner.com/subpage1.html

any ideas? If it's not okay or already been done would anyone else like to choose? LOL

I'm lost, too so I guess we're lost together! I hope someone finds us... Lol

I like it. I like the doodle on photos one, too. Smile

Make it official and title it "July mini-challenge"

Make sure to put a closing date on it and tell ppl to turn off their siggies

I'm not really sure what Stephanie is referring to either. Hmmm, I can't remember ever doing an Alphabet challenge, but I could be wrong.... it sure sounds fun!!

Huh? I was just saying sorry for not sending you the list of previous challenges to help you pick the next one. You did absolutely nothing wrong. I was trying to apologize for not being on the ball.

What is the due date?

Here is mine. This is my younger brother and sister. I wanted to scrap the top pic for a while now ...then when I remembered the bottom photos I ran all over the house looking for them. LOL I used the jean cuz I like the paper. Dh pointed out that also begins with J though there is no significance with them and jeans. Lol I know it's a little blurry...may try to get a better pic of it later

Ooooooh - I really like that one, love the jeans and love all the J's everywhere (I know that was the point of the challenge, but I mean I love where you placed them).

I agree, the picture really 'pops' with her dress and the paper matching!

Worked on this until midnight last night and then couldn't get photobucket to upload!

Here's my entry:


Alphas, background, and ribbons: Backyard kit

No journaling b/c I am planning on another page to go with it (they are from 4th of July)

mommys, I love how the background matches her dress! how old was she in that pic? She sure has grown.

Princess Leia, I love the repetion of "S" using different words that start with "s" and the pics are great too.

Carrie, love all the words starting with S! Scout is sooooo adorable.

I'm hoping to work on mine today, we've been so busy and I'm just itching to scrap!

This was a lot of fun! It took forever to get done, but here's my entry ... if you want credits, go here (there are a ton of them, I used 21 different paper packs, 7 different alphas, and 8 different element packs)

This was a very popular challenge idea...great one!
Here is my entry. I had a lot of fun with it using up some scraps and making it "kidsy". I used my paint and painted that on with my fingers to create a little background and used primary colors. It was my quickest page yet too. Biggrin
