Free layered template, anyone?

Hi!!! Ahh... another weekend with hundreds of things to do. So I'll just keep this short and sweet!

It's my turn again to host a template challenge at Digital Scrap Cafe forum, and I decided to try something different this time. :)

Before we get to the template itself, let's talk reward! This week's challenge winner will win a gift coupon from the loveliest Alison, aka messina33, who's the designer behind Milly Dee Designs. I used her fun kit Little Sailor for my sample layout for the challenge!

And here's my page:

Brave the Weather - 15 Oct 08
Our fun boat trip on a replica of ancient vessel in Phuket turned into a nightmare quickly when the storm swooped in. The rain was hard and the wind was throwing our small boat left and right then up and down with the waves. Quite a few people must have started praying silently.
Fortunately, the storm continued on past us eventually, as suddenly as when it came. The whole ordeal was over in less than 20 minutes but it felt much longer. We can laugh about it now but it was certainly no laughing matter then.

Now, about the template. I know that the templates I gave away for my challenges are more of the Clean and Simple style. That's because it's something I'm more comfortable with. This time, I think it should be nice to try something outside my comfort zone. :)

Clustering, especially tight ones, is always my weakness. Everytime I make a page with clustering, I'm nervous and feel I have to concentrate a whole lot more than usual. So, I think this should be a nice challenge for you and me both! I told myself to be brave and create this template for the challenge. And you know what? I had so much fun! I love the page I made with it too!!!

So here's what your free template looks like! You may click on the preview image below or just click here to go to the challenge thread where you can find your download link.

That's it!! I hope you like the template and can find time to play with it! See you at the challenge!

I love the way you pick all precious 3 pictures for this page. And the journaling is perfect for them.

Thank you very much for the 'Be Brave' template.
