Birthday Bash - Inspired Ideas Challenge

Hi everyone, it's Lynn of TMA Designs (along with Lisa of Digital Designs by Lisa) here hosting the "Inspired Ideas" Challenge.

One of the best ways to get out a block and get inspired is to use a template. That's why Lisa and I have teamed up to give you 2 unique templates to try out!

I know that when I am looking through a gallery, my eye is drawn to the "white space" layouts. But, I find that I hardly ever make one of these type of LOs because I either want to squeeze too many elements on, or I want to make my photos too big!

If you're not sure what "white space" (sometimes called "negative space") means, take a look at these great examples using Faith Sisters products:
Sweet Girls
You Make my Heart Leap
Girls' Night out
You Bring the Fun
Apple of your Eye

Basically, it means that there is a fair amount of background with no elements on it. Usually the photo is small, and there are a few things clustered around the photo, or maybe the edges, but well over half the background is "empty".

So, this challenge is simple!
**All you need to use one of these 2 templates for inspiration. You don't have to strictly follow the template, but just use it however you want (flip it, add or delete stuff, and make it your own!)
Then come back to the forum and post a link to your layout. Don't forget to post a link in your own thread in the forum as well.
Make sure to grab this flair when you've completed the challenge and put it in your signature.

Remember that layouts have to be done by Sunday night, Aug 30th.
I'll also pick a random winner to win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to my shop!**

Ok, here's a look at the templates (Click on each to download!):
One with 1 photo:

One with 3 photos:

And here are our examples:

**Also note that you can even just look at the templates or use our examples for inspiration, if you're not sure how to use a template or if you are a paper scrapper!**
