a TEMPLATE CHALLENGE (with prizes)!!!

***this template is no longer available as a freebie - but watch for it soon in a sampler pack!***

I've really missed hosting a template challenge & a few people have asked me to consider hosting one again - sooo...

I'm EXCITED to announce that I'm going to be hosting a template challenge here on my blog now! Every two weeks (on the 1st and the 15th'ish) I'll be posting a new freebie template for the challenge!

Here's how it'll work...

* I post a new freebie template and you download it :)
* you make a layout with it - easy so far ay?
* upload it to whichever gallery you'd like (...cough... ES is a good one... cough...) - nah - it doesn't matter which one you upload to - just stick it in your usual gallery
* leave me a comment on my blog with a link to your layout in that gallery
* done!


There are prizes to be won each time as well!!

I might mix it up a bit as far as what the prizes are each time - but for this first challenge, there will be TWO prizes - 1 for the layout that 'WOWs' my CT and I the most and one random winner! I have a number written down - and the person who comments (with a link to their template layout) and is that # commenter wins too!

Wanna know what you're playing for??
Well besides getting a freebie template :P - the two prizes are $5 coupons to my store!

The layouts for this challenge are due July 31st at midnight EST - and the next freebie template (and the winners for this round) will be posted August 1st!

Here's a preview of the freebie template...

And here are two layouts that Angie and Shannon made with the template...





This template was based on a paper scrapped layout by a scrappin' friend from another site - Jael (luvscrappin) - here's a link to her super fun gallery over at ScrapJazz...

Jael's Layouts!

If you like what you see there - take a look in the previous post at the little PEEK and be sure to check back in a day or two for my newest template set!!!

Ready? GO!!!
Can't WAIT to see your pages!!
