Hello, Darksiders!

I love all the creativity and artistry I see here at scrapbook.com by all of its members and I was a member of this site for some time before I noticed that there wasn’t too much of the darker side of scrapping represented here. And by darker side I mean the use of darker colors, subjects including Goth, Punk, and Emo, or styles like steampunk and distress. I love the Darker Side and want to see more of it!

So therein lays the challenge: Create layouts , cards, tags, altered art, etc... that are out of your comfort zones. Come on over to the dark side!

This month’s challenge topic will be Spring Time. You can interpret this any which way you like. Here are a couple of hints: use darker colors as substitutes for colors you'd normally use for spring or focus on the "time" part of the challenge more than the "spring."

Let your imagination and your dark side loose! Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you all will come up with!

Rules for this challenge:

1. There are no real rules
2. Please post your projects between April 1 and April 30, 2011
3. First day of the next month, I will choose a winner randomly either by using a random number generator or the old tried and true names in a hat method.
4. Everyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time
5. Post as many projects as you like for this challenge. Each one will count as an entry. Entries must be submitted before midnight of the last day of the month.
6. If you receive love, please return love
7. You must participate regularly (at least five posts throughout the month) to be entered in drawing
8. If you’ve won the previous month, you can only share your pages this month. You are eligible to win again the following month.

Linking Layouts to the thread:

1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the left-hand side and click on ‘Share Anywhere'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

Allowing Public Embedding:

1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

The winner of April's challenge will receive a lovely RAK from me!

Oh this sounds interesting this month! I keep saying I'm going to beg off of challenges so I can concentrate on all the other projects in my closet...and then you always intrigue me and my creativity!

Welcome, ladies!!!

Sarah, I hope you're feeling better! My son has Strep Throat and I'm just hoping I don't get it! I don't want to get sick!

Becky, It makes me so happy to think that I inspire you!

Karen, would love to see what you come up with!

Ok. I'm going to try this one this month. I have an IDEA, but I need to go out to the back of my property to see if it will work.

That's just a clue for ME so I'll remember what was in my head when I signed up!
