This is an intersection challenge, so both racers must work on a single layout
We are all about inspiration around here - we strive to inspire you to create the best pages you can with forum challenges, blog challenges, freebies, wishes, ... so we want to know....
What inspires your inner artist?
It can be anything from kids to hubbys to other people in your lives to places you've been/live/work... you get the idea we want to see what inspires you in your life! (it does not have to be scrap-related!)
Your layout must include 2 photos - 1 photo from each racer - that show what inspires each of you in your lives
That's it! no other requirements, just let the inspiration flow.

When making your list, please keep your items realistic, things you could actually do, achieve and cross-off your list. For instance, we would all love to win the Lottery, but we have no real control over or means to ensure we are the winner, so it's not a feasible goal. Your items can be small, outrageous, bizarre, modest.. just make sure you have at least 50 of them!

So I am sure it will come as no surprise to you then that learning is part of what our challenge is all about.
We would like you to do a layout that includes selective colouring. We have two tutorials here, Selective Colouring in Photoshop, and Selective Coloring in Paint Shop Pro. Not that you are required to use these techniques, feel free to selectively colour any way you see fit. Our requirement is that your layout has a focal photo, and that photo has some selective colouring in it.
We would also like to see some journaling. Scrapbooking is about sharing experiences, and we'd like to hear a little about those experiences. So we ask that you include some journaling, at least 20 words worth. And no, captions, titles or dates don't count towards your 20 words. Let's have some fun with the journaling, playing with colour to highlight, or using tags or something to give selective emphasis to your journaling. Just put a selective focus on a couple of your journaling words in some way. Be creative!
Speaking of dates, we want to see them. Half a century from now, when I'm long gone, I'd like people be able to look at my layouts and know at least when stuff happened. We've already covered the "what" with journaling, let's tell the whole story! And not just typing the date somewhere on the page ... we know you all are closet date element hoarders out there, lets see some of those fun and funky elements! Show us when the event was, when you journaled, share a date or two with us!
All layouts must of course be posted at NDISB challenge #3 gallery, but we ask that you also post a copy of your layout here in our ADSR 5 Gallery on our Challenge Wall.

There are only three basic rules:
1) Your layout is about your partner. Introduce your partner to us. How you do this is entirely up to you. You can interview them, you can send them a questionnaire, you can use 5 words that best describe them, you can journal how you met for this race, or if you've been partners for years, you can make your page about a friendship that started with a crazy internet race and has since turned into so much more. The only rule is, the layout is about your partner and you need to tell us something about them.
2) You must include at least one photo of your partner. Large, small, color, b&w, of their face, back of their head, feet, whatever. But it must be a picture of your partner.
3) You must choose one layout from your partner's gallery and scraplift that as the page design for your layout. Only the placement of items is needed. You don't have to lift the colors, theme, etc. Just the overall placement of papers, elements, title and journaling.
Upload your completed layout to your NDISB gallery and link us to your partner's layout in whatever gallery you found it.
