March's inspiration will come from the Movie Poster....'The Day After Tomorrow'

For an extra 6 bonus points :)

1) White title = 1pt
2) One photo only = 2pts
3) White monochromatic layout with a touch of blue = 3 pts

NOTE - We are now looking for individual entries for FS2S, you may combine your entry with a sketch but we no longer want entries that combine other challenges as we feel the ladies that do the right thing and take the time to enter independent entries are disadvantaged when it comes to winning prizes. If it means we lose a few entries, so be it!

The Design Team have put together some great submissions,
so lots of inspiration to share with you all  :)

Entries for  'The Day After Tomorrow' will close
Friday 30th March at midnight.

Looking forward to seeing some great entries this month :)
Note - there will be no 'Movie Extra' for March

All entries for March's movie poster 'The Day After Tomorrow' will go here........

Here is my interpretation of the poster.....

Shazza - Cafe Contemplation!

My lovey took this photo of me at one of our favourite cafe's in Heidelberg recently. A quick snap while I was watching the cricket! I think I went overboard with 'the touch of blue'...but I do like how this layout turned out on the core flute board.

Here is Debi Clarks submission....

Debi Clark - Don't Feed the Birds

Hello Shazza,
Wow March has rolled around so quickly...the year is 
spinning along again!
I really enjoyed working on my LO, as I found this 
movie poster really inspirational! I also love 
monochromatic layouts & found working on this
photo a breath of fresh air! 
This photo of Traflagar Square in London was taken at 
Christmas 2005 when I was there, & there are a few 
pidgeons in the foreground.  But the birds are
discouraged to flock there now, so decided that would 
be my title, & in white alphas too.  I have misted 
my cardstock blue, & added white or pale blue 
I hope to see lots of pages for this great challenge.
Cheers, Debi

Here is Mary's layout for the month...

Mary Steinmetz - Winter Wonderland

Some more inspiration from Karen Williams...

Karen Williams - Early Snow

Here is Jane Howden's submission...

Jane Howden - Those Eyes

Here is Dale Tiernan's example page...

Dale Tiernan - Bride Lindy

Hi Shazza,
I loved the poster this month. My layout is of my Aunty Lindy. I was her bridesmaid when I was 4 and the blue mulberry paper I've used is the same colour as my dress and that of her bridesmaids. Everything else is white and pretty. Such a great challenge.
Kind regards,

Here is Jennifer's inspiration....

Jennifer Manis - Cherish Today

Hi Shazza!  
I really enjoyed this month's challenge!  I kept my page simple, and I also got all the criteria on it also!  My layout is titled, 'Cherish Today.'  hope to see lots of layouts this month!  :)


Here is Nicky Normandales submission.....

Nicky Normandale - There Better be Coffee

Hi Shazza,
What a challenge this one was! I struggled trying to figure what to make that would include the criteria then thought it might be a good opportunity to have a little fun with some colour and also capture my love for my new coffee machine!

Here is Alanna's take on the challenge....

Alanna Nelson - Sympathy Card


I thought this criteria was perfect for a sympathy card. I used a single stamped image instead of a single photo and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I used white cardstock matted in blue for my card layers to give the monochramatic white look with a touch of blue. Was a great challenge!

Here is Sandi's submission for March.....

Sandi Robinson - Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Attached is my submission for March's inspiration poster 'The Day After Tomorrow' awesome film & very thought provoking!!

I have kept my LO white/monochrome with a touch of blue (ink, paint & rub-ons), used only one photo & cut a white CS title on my silhouette, so all three criteria met!!!

The photo is a recent one of my elder son, Alex, taken while he & I went out for a walk in the first (& maybe the last!) snowfall of 2012! 
I can't wait to see what everyone does with this months fabulous challenge!! 
Sandi :)
