  • DSD CHALLENGE | Countdown

    Hello! I hope you have been having a great time enjoying all the DSD games and challenges that have been running over the last few days, and of course taking advantage of the sales too!
    Today I have one of the last challenges for you, and it is the Countdown Challenge, I hope you are going to love it! The idea is that you create a page or hybrid project that uses 10 of something, then 9 of something else, 8 of something different... and so on until you get to just 1 of something, and then you are done!

    Here is my page:

    I used:
    10 - sequins
    9 - flowers
    8 - letters of an alpha (to make the title)
    7 - leaves
    6 - lines of journaling
    5 - lines of stitching
    4 - papers
    3 - date tabs
    2 - word strips
    1 - photo
    0 - and nothing else!

    Here's another example created by Creative Team member Heidi Nicole...

    She used:
    10 - lines of journaling
    9 - stamps
    8 - sequins
    7 - heart stickers
    6 - stitches
    5 - word strips
    4 - numbers brads
    3 - film strip frames
    2 - flowers
    1 - photo

    This was so much fun to do, and was much easier than I thought it was going to be (phew!). Now it is over to you, I hope you will enjoy playing along with this challenge, and I can't wait to see how you will make your countdown page. You can use any elements you like, and your background paper is a freebie (so you don't count it), but apart from the background paper, the only things allowed on your page are the countdown items. I'd love you to make a little list for me of the countdown items too, pretty please!

    The rules of the challenge:
    1. Your layout must use 100% TDP product.
    2. Every item used on the page must be part of the countdown (so 10 of something, 9 of something else, 8 of whatever and so on).
    3. You must post your layout in the TDP gallery and then start a post in this thread and link up the image (and link it to the gallery post).
    4. Your layout must be posted in this thread no later than 11:59pm PT on Wed 10/10 in order to be eligible to win one of the CHOOSE YOUR OWN PRIZE awards (don't forget to visit that thread and put your prize choices in rank order!). Winners will be announced in the TDP newsletter on Friday 10/12.

      Well crap Heidi Nicole! I didn't count my paper either. I could easily revise by counting the background paper and then the 9 papers used for the triangles to be my #10 and then remove the sequins. What do you say corrin

      tiffany scraps - you are ok, the background paper is a freebie (because you can't really make a page without it!) - so you are all good!
