The challenge of Challenge #7!

This is a tough one!

We have already read your comments in our forum about being new and not having supplies, or even being not so new but still having to buy supplies to meet the requirements of the challenge. So we are being proactive in responding to your needs. In fact, your fellow racers have already started helping you out. If you go to this thread on the Natural Designs forum, you will find that a fellow racer has offered her freebies, with enough variation in alphas in particular, to meet the challenge. One well known designer that offers a huge stockpile of freebies can be found here. Please be sure that they all come from the same designer though. There are also other freebie sources available - try entering the words "digital scrapbooking freebies blog" into Google, or your favorite search engine. In our own store we have several designers that have been around quite awhile and you may be able to compile what you need from their sampler packs. (Hint: NDISB designers that meet that profile, you might want to post in the above thread!)

So it seems that challenge #7 is not only challenging your scrapbooking skills, it is also challenging your detective abilities to get the items that you need without spending an arm and a leg, or perhaps anything at all. Who knows, maybe you'll find some more great sources for products!

Many questions regarding the challenge have already been asked and answered. You can find them here.

Racers, please keep in mind that the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race isn't a "contest". We are not awarding a prize to the best layout. We are not trying to narrow the field by weeding people out. Our desire it that everyone that starts the race, finishes the race. We want all participants to have a great time, stretch their boundaries, collect some cool stuff along the way, and be there at the finish to have a shot at the randomly presented Grand Prize or consolation prizes. Remember, if it were easy, it wouldn't be a challenge!

This one is definitely a challenge!!! I was shocked at first, but once I started working on it, it was a lot of fun:) It really took me out of my comfort zone, and isn't that what challenges are suppose to do? Good luck everyone;)

This challenge was definitely um. . challenging, but I enjoyed going through my supplies. I forgot about half of the stuff I have. LOL

This was super hard for me to do. Not only was this a time consuming project but I am trying to get out of town with my family and I had to cram this challenge and will tuesdays in before we leave bright and early on Wed. morning. Oh, the pressure is killing me!

I'm just happy I finished it!
