Since April is the month of spring and Easter, I chose green and blue - The green grass and blue sky that we can all now enjoy!

But, I didn't want to chose between bold colors and pastels, so I ask you - and it was pretty much split down the middle and people seem to have definite opinions about which they prefer -- so I am giving you the choice this month. Both green and blue make beautiful pastels and primaries. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to try both!

RULES:
1. Your must use these two colors as the main colors of your layout.
2. Any size of layout, digi or paper, one or 2-pages are allowed.
3. Only one layout per person can be submitted for judging - unless you do both bold and pastel.
4. You MUST allow public embedding to be entered into the challenge.
5. You can only upload new layouts from Sunday, April 1st until Monday, April 3oth, 2012 at 5pm GMT/9am PST (sb.com time)
6. PLEASE LINK THE PRODUCTS USED ON YOUR LAYOUT - it's great to find out what lovely products you have used.
7. Only when the challenge has been closed, PM me the numbers of your favorite 3 layouts. The layout with the most votes, wins!
8. Don’t vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for pm-ing yours.
9. Try to leave comments on the layouts entered in the challenge – everyone needs a little love.
10. Have fun!

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’.

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 ‘Link/Embed Image’.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

** PLEASE NOTE: only layouts which fit the color criteria can be left for sharing. Thank you! **

Here is a sample of what I think of as bold and deep green and blue:
