Challenge #15: Go BIG

Hello! Erica here with the next challenge. Let me just start out by saying that I really enjoyed looking at all of the different pages everyone made with our Get Messy Challenge. Some of you got really into it! That was a really fun Challenge!

Now let me introduce you to our next Challenge: Go Big.. Use a photo on your layout that is a 5 x 7 or bigger. This is a great opportunity to really get up close with one of your favorite photos. There are some really cool interpretations from the Paper Girls and I hope they stimulate your imagination.

Here is what I came up with:

 I went for an 8 x10 of my youngest when he was just a tiny little guy.

Charity made a card out of an 8 x 10 print that she had. Great idea!

 I love that Amber made the large print the focal point of her page but also added smaller pictures underneath.

 Judy used one of those many classic  5 x 7 school pictures that we all have and featured it in this fun school themed page.

 Kristina came up with two different takes on the challenge. This one she actually printed a 12 x 12 picture to use as her background. Great idea!!
 On this second page the strip of three pictures are a collage print. So much fun!

 Kyla took this opportunity to scrap an 8 x 10 of a lovely view from a vacation. Stunning!

 Sheryl scrapped a 5 x7 picture of her daughter - with the picture a little larger it is emphasized just that much more.

I love this close up on Charissa's cutie pie. Up close and intimate!

I hope this give you plenty to go on so if you don't have any large prints laying around pick one out and print it! I can't wait to see everyone's creations for this round!

I have the perfect photo for this challenge! I think the linky tool is broken though. It is saying submissions close in 4 days. I was in a panic for a minute!

Erica Bass said...

Thanks Sara! It's fixed now! You do have until the 15th!

I'm a follower (although my name isn't showing up under the follower list). I finally scrapped a 5x7 photo from 2003!

I couldn't find any reference to this on your website: Is it permissible to enter a layout in another challenge as well? I rely on sketches to get my scrapping done, and used a sketch from another challenge. Either way is fine; I just want to make sure I follow the rules!

Erica Bass said...

Jennifer - we can't access your link. Is your blog private? If you want to post your pictures to our facebook wall instead that is ok.

And to answer your question about if you can use a sketch - that's quite alright! Hope this helps.
