    Marie-Claire, in order to “group” two or more spaces, you can enlarge one of the areas using the Pick tool to cover whatever space you want, and then delete or hide the layers with the spots that won’t be used.

    I’m getting some great inspiration from the different ways everyone is approaching this challenge.  Thank you all so much for sharing your creations!

    Here’s my Day 4.  I crashed out the program when attempting the text so once I got everything loaded again I opted to do something simpler, just text with a chisel, then shadowed like a frame.  I will try Cassel’s letter arrangement suggestion another time in the future.

    Having had too many interruptions with Real Life, I finally managed to finish what I started with Day 2.   This is my first Challenge, so no wonder I am slower, but getting better.

    I chose Australian Animals for this, my photos.  The poem is by Dorothea Mackellar (or part thereof), one you learnt at school in my schooldays and I always loved it.

    Everyone has done such good work I see in their challenges.

    Late with this one I’m afraid.  Had a couple of drinks last night with my daughter and it made me tired so I couldn’t finish it off but it is all done now and I have even started on day 4s challenge, 🙂

    I took a day off the challenge to play golf so am a day behind.

    I have really enjoyed looking at all the pages. Lyn Lou I loved your photos of London, took me back to visits as a child. Jan I am so glad you included the first verse of the poem, most people start at the second and it completely changes the context.

    Here is my Day 3, memories of a visit to Singapore in 2013. I had a few problems lining the background photo up on different pages so ended up doing it on one big one.

    Thank you Marlene, I really enjoyed doing that challenge and happy the way it turned out, it’s my first time doing this.

    Thank you Cassell, It’s been a lot of fun going through all the old photos and such a great way to display them too.  I am often looking at what I can do with all the photos I take and more recently been using them for my artwork.  I take a lot photos of birds, animals and floristry, as I love nature. I love interesting and historic buildings too.

    I am loving everyone’s designs you are all doing a great job.

    Day 4 was really easy thanks to Cassel’s Scattered Photos script. I ran the script resizing the photos as suggested and adding a border. I chose not to add the shadows when requested as I was’t sure whether I would leave the photos where they were. After the script ran I did some adjustments to size, rotation and placement, trying different things until I was happy with it. Very quick and easy.

    I chose some of the photos from the studio tour I did in 2013, an absolutely fabulous experience for someone who is a Harry Potter fan and also interested in sets, props etc. I think the tour has changed since I was there, I would love to go back and see it again. I would thoroughly recommend it to everyone, even if you are not a Harry Potter fan just seeing all the background stuff was amazing.

    I used the colour of Gryffindor house for the background, the quote was from a set called “Harry Potter” which I got years ago but I don’t know where from. The font is ParryHotter, found in a few free font places. I had a few other elements but decided I didn’t want to clutter the page up.

    Marlene I actually enjoyed reading the whole poem again, but had to choose only the first verse, it is a lovely poem.   I have been to Singapore myself, years ago now and remembered seeing the Macaws at the Jurong Bird Park and marvelling how they stayed in their open enclosure – I guess they had it too good there.  I loved Singapore, so enjoyed your layout.

    Spent today working on Challenge 3 and I chose to showcase Lord Howe Island, a beautiful Island and part of Australia.  Only 400 tourists are allowed at one time.  Some residents can trace their family history to Fletcher Christian and some others from The Bounty (remember the Movie – Mutiny On The Bounty).  However Norfolk Island was where they mainly settled.

    Thanks for the link to Yin Designs Cassel, they are lovely.  Day 4 of the challenge completed.  Decided to go with cabins, cottages and shacks as I have a large collection of photos for them.  Personally I love the shacks.  They always remind me of the holidays we had when I was growing up.

    CHallenge Day 4
    Got carried away and did a centre page spread of photos.
    These photos are a recent visit to a park, which has an area with all the animals and a few more that we were unable to get photos of.
    There is also a lake which we love to visit too.

    For my 3rd I decided to go with beach scenes.
    My feeble brain seems to be accepting these new things.

    I am continually surprised and inspired by the many different examples of the same challenge, just goes to show that there is no right or wrong way to do these pages only what we feel looks good.

    Jan I was very interested in your photos of Lord Howe Island, I have never been there but we did celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary on Norfolk Island. It was fascinating to learn the history of the convicts and the mutineers and to see the different conditions in which they all lived. I might use some of my photos on another day if they are suitable.

    My Day 5 page features photos from my last trip to England in 2013 (which could also be my last in the other meaning of the word). I had seen the Brighton Pavilion in passing a few times before we left England but as my niece lives in Brighton we took the opportunity to visit the town with my sister and brother-in-law. The panorama was made with Image Composite Editor. The frames for the photos were done with Corel’s Simple Caption script although I did change the background and the size of the font. I used two colours in the Pavilion for a very subtle gradient on the bottom and continued this in the big words – it doesn’t really show that much but I didn’t want anything heavy.

    I followed Cassel’s advice on the text and I was really stoked with the effect, thanks Cassel.  I’m really enjoying all the lovely work coming through and I’m saving some very cool ideas from you ladies … thanks!

    Well I finally had time and caught up – at least to Day 5.   In February 2016 we went to Vietnam and were there for Tet (Chinese New Year).   Fantastic, the people, the colours, the lights and all the flowers, it goes on for about 5 days and is a public holiday for most.

    We started in Ho Chi Minh City where we saw all the flower displays being set up and saw the opening night and what a sight that was.  We then went to Hoi An for the actual New Year celebration night and that was WOW also.

    My layout is set in Ho Chi Minh showing some sights and the flowers.  I used two night time photos together for the background and Cass’s Scattered Photos Script to scatter the photos, resize and add borders, made life so much easier.

    So many new lovely images, I think we are all having fun with this Challenge, thanks Carole.

    Hello everyone. It has come to my attention that at least one participant in the challenge has been experiencing issues on the site and is unable to post her projects in the forum. If you are having some similar odd issues, can you please let me know by email (obviously, if that is your case, you can’t post in here). Just click the little yellow rectangle on the right side of this page and it will open an email to me.

    For everyone else who is able to post and have, your work is fantastic!!! You are real creators and designers. I am hoping those are not the only scrapbook layouts that you will do this year!! 🙂

    Awesome Annie and Jan. 🙂 Annie, I love Disney, have collected Disney items since I was a kid. Jan that celebration looks great fun, love the photos.

    Here’s my challenge Day 5, more photos from my holiday in Gloucestershire last year.
    The top photo is a panoramic I created using my bridge camera which has a panoramic feature included.

    Love it Lyn. I know that area of Gloucester very well and was only there at the shopping outlet on Wednesday. I used to do Community Nursing in Gloucester too. Makes a fab double page.

    Here is my day 4. Being a scattered layout reminded me of a post board where you pin all relevant and not so relevant bits to. I used Cassel’s scripts for the texture cork, Photo and ticket strips. Any other elements are what I made. TFL

    Here is my day 5. I used some images from Pixabay to composite a scene. We visited  Ludlow Castle last year. I used Cassel’s Photo Booth strip script and added some window photo’s i took from Hereford Cathedral. TFL.
