Challenge #7

This is challenge lucky #7 and the first to feature some awesome designs from the Design Team! This challenge is a Use Your Stuff Challenge.
We all love our alphabets, whether they be stickers, rub-ons or chipboard, but what's the worst part about them? All those leftover letters you know you'll never need! The purpose of this challenge is to make use of those letters. Use your leftover alphas for anything but your title- you can make design elements out
of them, use them as masks, background, anything!

Here's what the DT came up with:



I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with! Don't forget to post a link to your layout in the comments!
Stay tuned next week for more layouts from the other half of our Design Team :)

New Button for you!

I have had a few people ask about a button for forums, so I have a Thrill Seeker button if you would like to use it :)

I'll be posting this in the sidebar as well, so if you want to use it, you can!

Challenge #6

I used to love the challenges on the "One Little Word" blog. Sadly, it has been discontinued, so I would like to incorporate that into my own challenges! I'm calling these "Just One Word" challenges and this will be slightly different. My challenge to you will be to use this word as the main component of your title (you can have more than 1 word in the title, this just needs to be the one that will stand out). The word for this challenge today is:
Have fun!
Next week will be the first challenge featuring some layouts from the new design team! They are excited about it & I hope you will love it as much as they do!

Challenge #5

I ran across this vintage ad and knew I had to use it in a challenge. My challenge to you this time is to not only be inspired by the design of it, but also the colors!
You may be seeing some sketches of a different kind on here soon as well... I got my hands on a textbook of ad layouts for an old Graphics Design Course from back in the 60s.

Don't forget to post a link to you layouts in the comments!

Design Team Follow-Up

Thank you to everyone who has submitted for the design team! I will be using this next week to review all of them. Also, we didn't get as may submissions as I had hoped for, so the design team will be cut down to 6 people instead. I will announce the Design Team on Sunday, April 17.
