Anyone up for a new challenge again this month?

I have been scrapping some large photos of my girls the past few weeks. I was running out of ideas and decided to go hunting when I came upon a challenge from 2008 by Pee_Nut23. I thought what a great idea and decided to see if anyone else is interested. I copied most of her rules.

Rules:
1) The photo must be either 8x10 or larger cropping is allowed, or 2 5x7s on one page or collages.
2) The challenge runs through May 31th.
3) You may enter multiple challenges.
4) Digital layouts allowed.
5) Must be a new layout as of May 1st.
6) You may use a 2 page layout.
7) One layout per participant however you may share but please share layouts that fit this challenge.
*Please allow public embedding.

Let's have some fun.

Beautiful layout from last month.

Thank you ladies for your interest. I am hoping that this challenge will get more scrappers to scrap those larger photos sitting in a box / photo album. Each baby photo of my girls watching them grow through them are bringing back the sweetest memories.

Thank you all for sharing. It look like this challenge is getting off to a great start. I have to get busy and make mine soon too, when I am feeling better. I have the crud with an ear infection the dr said.

I haven't forgotten you, just been under the weather with this crud. Getting better finally.

I have to do my layout next week. I did get a lot of pages finished on NSD. I didn't use any large photos.

*Some ideas for using large photos on a sketch is find a sketch that has 2 or more photos and just use your large photo instead.

I am! It is slowly growing and I think we all have those large photos we want to scrap, but scared to try it. With everyone on here sharing it makes it less scarey and made me want to scrap them all.

You all are sharing so many great ideas for using the large photos - thank you!

Here is my lo. I used 2 5x7 pics. The 2nd one came with the border, so the part that is the "pic" of my dd isn't actually 5x7, it is 5x7 with the printed border the photo place had added, so I hope it still counts.

Of course it counts, I love the border. We used to use borders all the time but haven't much lately.

I think doing the school photos is a good idea and to see how our children change on the years and into adulthood.
