You can go lots of directions with this one - add other colors or make a pure nature page, go bold and deep or soft and pastel, go almost monochrome with the yellow and accent with the brown and green. The sky (or sun) is the limit!

RULES:



1. Use all three colors - Red, White and Blue. You can use other colors, but it will disqualify you from the twist.
2. Any size of layout, digi or paper, one or 2-pages are allowed.
3. Only one layout per person can be submitted for voting. Can be digi, cards or any size layout.
4. You MUST allow public embedding to be entered into the challenge.
5. You can only upload new layouts from July 1st until July 31th, 2013 at 5pm GMT/9am PST (sb.com time). Open to new entries anytime during the month.
6. PLEASE LINK THE PRODUCTS USED ON YOUR LAYOUT - it's great to find out what lovely products you have used.
7. Only when the challenge has been closed, PM me the numbers of your favorite 3 layouts. The layout with the most votes, wins!
8. Do not vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for pm-ing yours.
9. Try to leave comments on the layouts entered in the challenge ... everyone needs a little love.
10. Have fun!

Twist - use of Nature in photos or elements

I need some buying advice. I had over 150 of my digi pages printed and I want to put them in albums by years so as I catch up on past years, I can add in the album in chronological order.

So, I need about 10 albums that I can add pages to. 2012 and 2013 will need to hold at least 200 pages.

What are your favorite albums and post systems?

Any help and advice will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Pam! I want to join in too. . . but I have a question (I'm still new to this embedding). I think I've got all the rules, but I'm not sure how to do the public embedding - is there a button to choose when I'm uploading the lo? I've only embedded something one time :-)

RULES:

4. You MUST allow public embedding to be entered into the challenge.

10. Have fun! - I WILL! :-)

Thanks!
Marty :-)

Welcome everyone - sounds like this is going in all directions - what a fun variety!

Marty, yes, you can just select allow public embedding box when you upload your photo and then you can either embed your photo here in the thread or just select the August Colour Challenge if you have joined the group or you can do both for the maximum amount of chances for comments.

Let me know if you have trouble when you are ready to upload (after the first) and I will be glad to offer specifics if you don't see how to do it.

I didn't figure out how to post with my phone until a bit too late for July, but I posted it on the thread anyway.

Looking forward to using these colors! I've got some classic Basic Grey "Origins" pp that will fit this challenge perfectly!!!

Nancy, sorry you missed the deadline, but so glad you posted and shared - great layout! Can't wait to start seeing these great nature pages and what all you do with the yellow, green and brown. I have a feeling I'll be doing more pages with those colors this month, too.

Voting is going great! Thanks for voting.

I have a question. How do you upload your pages. Do you take a picture, and scan it into your computer or what? I take a picture using my ipad and then upload, but it doesn't turn out that great. Any suggestions.

I take a photo, crop it in "paint" and file it my computer gallery. Hit "browse" in my SC.com gallery and find it in my computer gallery. Then hit "upload" and I'm good to go.

I'm sure there are easier ways, but this one stuck after DS went over it about 12 times with me-LOL. I'm very LOW TECH, sorry!

I take a round about way of loading my pictures, but have perfected it over time so it doesn't take me long.
1. photograph with digital camera
2. download to compute
3. edit in PSE and save to computer
4. post to my gallery
5. link to challenge threads

Great layouts - Mandi, all you need is just a little bit of each color, so just fine.

I can't believe this cool weather we are having here in the midwest. I should be cleaning out the garage, but I am going to scrap today!!!!! I hope LOL

I have the first post updated. Please check to make sure you are there and got credit for the twist if you did it.

Have a great weekend!
