Hi! I've got a great template challenge for you! I'm going to run it through noon on Tuesday, May 8! Here are the guidelines:

1. Using the FIVE free templates provided below, complete layouts with all of the templates using primarily GDS products.
2. Your layout should be unique and only for this challenge. No double dipping, lol!
3. Upload your completed layouts to your gallery at gds and provide links here so I can find them and send you the bonuses. It's not necessary to upload them to the sketch gallery for this challenge. Just make sure to provide links here in this thread.
4. If you complete layouts with all 5 templates by the deadline (May 8 @ NOON), I will give you my Sunny Moods kit and glitter. This is one of my older kits and I've completely revamped it. I'm about to release it into my store!
5. If you use my American Story Bundle (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_41&products_id=11150) for at least one of your layouts, you will also receive a $5 off coupon to my store!

Here are some previews of all the goodies:

Andrea,
The templates are fantastic!

I don't usually use templates because I'm learning design and need the design practice, but I have so many heritage photos to scrap, I'm beginning to realize that I need to use templates sometimes to speed things up. Maybe I have many years to get all my heritage work done, and maybe I don't.

I'm glad you gave us until the 8th to do it.

OK I was successful at uploading this morning. Now I have another problem. How do I get the correct link for the kit in the store? I copied the URL, but when I click on that in the LO credits it says, "page is not found". Oh, well! Here are my LO's. I got inspired to make a book for my mom with dementia. Thanks for the templates and the kits and challenge, Andrea!

OK I was successful at uploading this morning. Now I have another problem. How do I get the correct link for the kit in the store? I copied the URL, but when I click on that in the LO credits it says, "page is not found". ...

To get that correct link, you go to the store item and copy the whole link that is is the URL box at the top of your browser, and paste it into the box for "GDS Store items used." For example, the link for Andrea's American Story bundle is at this URL (preceded by the usual http, etc. and www dot godigitalscrapbooking dot com/):
shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_41&products_id=11150
(I find that right clicking and copying the link does not work for this purpose.)

You would only use the link for the image (right click on the image and choose "copy image location") when you are putting that image into a post in the forum (as you did for your five layouts).

Hope this is clear.

I'm working on sending these bonuses. If anyone is interested, I have a spot available on my creative team for a challenge manager. The job involves keeping track of challenges I am running and sending me a list of who has met the requirements. You get free products from me for helping out with this. Send me a pm if you are interested. :wink:

:balloons: Thank you so much for the free kit from your promotion!! Your creativity amazes me. I chose the double sided templates for my gift. I was a stay at home mom for 20 years. As a grandma of 6 and a retired adult I always get a chuckle when I realize how I used to think retirees would have so much time. LOL Enjoy these years as they go fleeting by. (When my 3 were young I thought the days were endless at times.)
