Ok, girls. Front page is updated, and I'm calling for votes.

Let's say top 3.

Color and Layout # please. It's easier for me that way.

Be sure to label your PM title MONOCHROME votes so I can sort it quickly!

I'll take all votes TODAY and TOMORROW (Monday and Tuesday) so I can get a winner posted before I leave for Italy.

Thanks for playing ladies! As always, this has been an amazing month of projects!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





Welcome to the monthly Monochrome Layout Challenge for September.

Here are the basics of how MONOCHROME works.
************************* **

1. Monochrome means "of one color." Each week has a color which you are to create a layout around. Aside from the listed neutral palette, this is the only color tone allowed in your layout.

2. It must be obvious that your intention is to create a one color layout, so the only "color" of your layout must be the weekly color and it's corresponding darker and lighter tones and shades. Any other colors must come from the neutrals palette.

NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE TONES are : white, cream, beige, tan, brown, khaki, olive, black, gray, and navy. These are the colors that my mother always told me "go with everything."

*****Layouts using colors other than the color of the week and the neutral palette are not considered monochrome and will not be included for the voting. Make SURE your layout conforms to the specs for this particular challenge!

3. Twists are added for your amusement and to help you push your project to the next level. If you complete the twist, your page gets an extra vote at the end of the month.

4. The challenge weeks can be completed in any order, and you are not required to complete all four weeks. This is a challenge by choice - do one, two, three, or all four weeks. Do them in whatever order you want. And if you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. Whatever works for you!

5. No sign-up required. Just jump in and have fun whenever you're ready!


6.
I am not the comment police. I know we all get busy and get behind. But we all like to get comments on our projects, so do your best to give love when you get love.

7. Layouts must be new as of today and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time September 30th . After the final posts are updated, I'll collect votes.

READY? Then let's go! Have Fun!

September.... Every September, the fashion industry steps out onto the runways and says, "hey, here's what it means to be in style for this fall."

I'm not much into high fashion, but I do like seeing the color trends because shortly afterward, those colors start popping up in all the windows in the malls, the notebooks in the office supply stores, and the halters in my local feed store.

This year, the colors are just down right lovely, and I think we all need to make a fashion statement every now and then. This month, let's do that on our layouts. Presenting four of the 2012 Fall Pantone Fashion Colors.


Enjoy these, and make sure to spend some time on your porch watching the world go by.

LoL.

Years ago, I actually had a silk jacket that was that color. I wore it with a banana colored shirt and a plaid skirt that was the same pink, yellow, and had some lavender in it. I looked like a great big flower.

But man, I loved that jacket. I wore it for my DH and my engagement photos 23 years ago.

Proof :

Adore


I finally wore out the elbows.
