Time to vote, ladies. Please send me your top three choices for each week. Include your layout number so I'll know to give you a vote for voting!

****************


Welcome to the monthly Monochromatic Layout Challenge. Here are the basics of how it works.

1. Each week there will be a color that you can do a layout around. Aside from the neutral palette, this is the only color tone allowed in the layout.

2. NEW NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE! You may add neutral colors to your layout. Acceptable neutral color 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."

3. The majority of your layout - at least 3/4 - must be the weekly color. Any other colors must come from the neutrals palette.

4. Each week there will be a twist. If you complete the twist, your page gets an extra vote.
MERRY DOUBLE TWIST MONTH!
Just for Christmas, I'm adding a second twist bonus to this challenge. You must complete the FIRST twist to be eligible for the double twist. Double twists count double votes!

5. If you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. You can also do the weeks out of order. Whatever works for you!

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

7. I'm 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.

8. Layouts must be new as of December 1st and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time December 31. Then we'll vote, and I'll RAK the winner.

I've wanted to try this one for a while...count me, I'll give it my best!

One question though....on the first set of twist for each, are we just supposed to use that word in each lo???

The twist is open to interpretation - however you want to incorporate it is your choice.

That leaves it WIDE open for creativity, doesn't it? LOL

I get that this time. Last month I was being so literal and so concrete that I locked myself in. This month I GET it! lol

The layouts will go in the first post. I normally put up four separate posts for them, but the girls got so excited this month that I didn't get a chance to get those posts done. LOL.
