Hi friends! Today's challenge is going to be a little different but hopefully lots of fun for those of you that want to play along. How many of you tuned in for the last post on the blog, where we showcased a page from the PRD gallery and played a little game of Scrap lift Round Robin? If you didn't catch it, you can take a look at what we did: October Scrap lift Round Robin.

One of us picked a page from the PRD gallery and scrap lifted it. Then next person scrap lifted the newly created page. As we moved along in this Round Robin style scrap lift adventure, the page design morphed and changed a bit, as each scrapper put their spin on things. We thought it would be fun for you guys to try this! So are you ready?

Here's how the Scrap lift Round Robin Challenge will work:

If you want to play, sign up in the TLP Designers Challenge thread.
We will put you in small groups of threes : Player 1, Player 2 & Player 3
Once you have your group of three - you can decide what order works best for your group (depending on your time constraints and schedules)
Player 1 in your group will pick a page from the PRD gallery at TLP (must be from the PRD gallery at TLP) and scrap lift it.
Player 2 scrap lifts player 1.
Player 3 scrap lifts player 2.
Post your page in PRD gallery and link it here in this blog post, so we know you completed your page.
Follow the rules below, where at least 75% of your page is made with PRD products.

*If we don't have even groups of threes, no worries! We will adjust as needed.

We can't wait to see the pages you all pick to scrap lift and watch it morph as it makes it's way through 3 different scrapper's digital hands!

Make sure you use at least 75% of Pink Reptile Design products on your page. Once completed, just upload your page to one or all of your galleries and post a link to your layout in the comments section of this post before the next challenge goes live on November 15th.

ONE favorite page will be chosen as the winner to receive a 10 dollar coupon to the PRD store, but really everyone is a winner, as all other participants receive a 25% discount coupon to the Pink Reptile Designs TLP store. So all the more reason to join in on the fun, right?!

Wishing you tons of fun and Happy Scrappin'!

Hi friends! Today we are sharing something a little different with you here on the blog. We thought it might be fun to showcase a page from the PRD gallery and have three of us scrap lift it. As we move along in this Round Robin style scrap lift adventure, the page design will morph and change a bit, as each scrapper puts their spin on things. So are you ready?

I'll start by grabbing this beautiful Sisters page by dvhoward.

By DVHoward

I loved the linear composition across the top third of Diane's page, so I stuck with that as I created my page. I also was really drawn to all the color and the fun clusters of different elements and textures ... so you can really see those aspects in my take on the page. I also left the title in the same location, but did choose to add a bit of journaling which ended up changing the overall design slightly by adding some text and a tiny sprinkle of elements in the bottom right corner. Instead of the paper strips, I let the crochet and flower borders fill in as a foundation to move the eye from left to right. I added an extra photo too. Here's my take on Diane's page:

Next up in our Round Robin scrap lift is Rikki who states: I was inspired by the diagonal layout that I wanted to recreate without too much clustering or layering. So I chose journal cards and rectangle elements and papers. To emphasize that I added paper squares in the corners and ribbons. Also I was drawn to the pink and yellow colours (which complement the b/w photo nicely, I think) and the crochet elements and added the same yellow crochet border to my pink journaling card. Here's Rikki's take on my page:

And finally we have Nini completing our Round Robin lift. Here's what she has to say about the process: I was first of all inspired by the flow of the papers and photos, the tile/mosaic style of it. I followed that to place my photos and some bits of paper here and there. I liked the pop of flashy pink also because it was just perfect to go with my freshly taken pictures. From her page I also took the buttons on paper bits placement, the arrows (in the ribbon for her) and the stitches and arranged them on my page to my taste. Like her, I placed my title on a paper spot but not all. I mixed it up with a more calligraphic/handwritten font for the most important words because I like big titles and I love calligraphic fonts :giggle: she had a subtle brush overlay on her background and I used a few too as color accents but I can't resist splatters and paint or brush overlays and I couldn't stop at just 1! lol. Here's Nini's take on Rikki's page.

By Nini

Wasn't that fun to see how we took one page and watched it morph as it made it's way through 3 different scrapper's digital hands? I loved seeing this process progress! Keep adding your pages to the PRD Gallery and maybe next time your page will be the one lifted.

Summer is over and the leaves are falling slowly from the trees, it's autumn and Halloween is almost there. Here in the Netherlands, it's not something we celebrate but we see more and more of the Halloween theme round october. When I see all the nice things, decorations, shattered faces, nice wrapped sweets and beautifully dressed up people, I think it could be a success here too.I know me and my children would love to go trick or treating!

There will be a lot of photos taken during Halloween and then it is nice to create a layout with a scarry font or something for a home decoration to “scare” off people or wrap the candy in an extra special way. That's why I've been looking for creepy fonts and they are all free for download.

1. One Two Trees, 2. I Still Know, 3. Halloween Is Back, 4. Sketch Bones, 5. Anywhere But Home, 6. Monsterama, 7. Monkey Snake, 8. October Crow, 9. Witches Magic, 10. Jellyka Castle's Queen

And with that I would like to wish everyone a great fall and Happy Halloween!!
