October Monthly Challenge

This month we are changing up how the Fan Group Challenges have been going. Now, instead of being required to use one specific kit, you will have your choice of using ANY Growing Pains Scrapped Kit as long as your finished layout meets the monthly challenge requirement(s).

So, what do we have in store for you this month? This month it’s a THEMED challenge. What is the theme? Why in honor of October, it’s HALLOWEEN!


So, as long as you use Growing Pains Scrapped Kits and your page has a Halloween feel to it, you will have a chance to win a kit of your choice for the Growing Pains Scrapped Store. Everyone else who participates also earns a coupon for $2 off any purchase in the Growing Pains Scrapped Store.

You will need to head over to the Growing Pains Scrapped Fan Group to enter your page in this month’s contest. All pages must be posted as a comment to the Challenge ad by Monday, October 31 at 11:59 PM EST to be entered for your chance to win.

While you are not REQUIRED to use any specific kit to make your page, here are few great Halloween themed kits you might want to consider. And even better, they will be on sale throughout all of October in case you decide you want to pick one up! To help out, however, these special kits WILL be on sale throughout the month for you to pick up!

First up we have Halloween Haunt. You can grab the full kit and the Cardstocks/Worn papers too. All images will take you to the products in the Growing Pains Scrapped Store.

Or perhaps you want something a bit more ‘elegant.’ If so Haunted Elegance may be the perfect kit for you:



Or maybe you are searching for that just right mix of spooky fun. If so “Haunted Mansion” might be the perfect kit for you!



Here are some spooky fun Halloween Themed pages made by the Creative Team:


And here is a fun little freebie for you all using Halloween Haunt, and if you head over to the Growing Pains Scrapped Fangroup, you can snag the second freebie using Haunted Mansion!
