Hi, I am Bright Eyes, your host for the Font Challenge for December.


Our font for this month is Winter Flakes by da Font. You can find it HERE (http://www.dafont.com/winterflakes.font).

I love the snowflakes with the large bold letters. It just yells 'wintertime' to me. I thought this was a wonderful font to add to your stash. The theme is WINTER TIME.

The rules for the challenge - in order to receive the bonus - you must post the layout here in this thread and a link to it in the gallery so we can leave you some love.

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the November Scrappin' 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Font Challenge Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=641)
(5) Come back here and post the image of the page you created, and link it to your page in the gallery so we can all leave you some love!

I will have a special surprise bonus for all who particiapte in this challenge by posting and linking their creations here. Please be sure to credit the designer's kit/s when you post to the gallery.

Yes, Brooke, that is my backyard. We don't get a lot of snow so I do enjoy it when it comes. Love having all 4 seasons here - but they are usually more moderate than other places.

Glad you like the layouts, Cathy... I do, too! The gals are so creative.

This layout (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=114218&title=my-grandma-and-her-bro&cat=641) is simple, but the paper is so very pretty - didn't want to clutter it with elements. The photo is of my grandmother and her brother skiing. Probably taken in the 1930's sometime. Words: Arne and Astrid skiing.

I love how you used the stars as frames for the photos. The snowflakes are a perfect compliment to the stars and the theme of First Snow. Thanks for playing this month.

Ofcourse the quickpage by Princess Design was a very good basis for the rest of the layout. I enjoyed making this one.

Tricia, this is a darling page. My goodness... the snow is almost as deep as she is tall!! The snowflakes are a wonderful accent around the frame. And I really like the stitching you added on an angle. Great page. Glad you joined the challenge for this month.

BTW, love your avatar for the month!

12-23-2012, 06:29 AM
Thank you! It was past time to change the avatar. :laugh: I just had to remember how to do it.
