Hi girlie girls!

Welcome back to the ABC Challenge. Since we're ready to start a new round, I've been doing a little thinking about giving this challenge a creative overhaul. Last month, we played a wild card round, and we seemed to have a lot of fun with that. I wanted to figure out a way to include that idea and give the players a little more creative license.

Here's how we're going to do it.

1. Each month, there will be three letters of the alphabet that are used to spin the challenge specs. Two of the months will have a fourth "wild-card" choice.

2. For each letter, there will be three categories of specs :
1 - Color
2 - Word or Topic
3 - Technique or Product

3. Your challenge is to create ONE SINGLE LAYOUT.

4. Your job will be to choose one category for each letter, making sure that you use all three categories.

You are to use all three letters and all three categories, but only one from each group. In other words, each letter and each category will be represented only once on your page. I hope this makes sense, but if not, please ask me to clarify. I'll be working up a sample and have it posted soon!

Example : If you use A for Aqua, you cannot use A in the other two categories. You will have to use B or C in Category 2. If you were to select C - Cherish, that means that you must use B - Brads in Category 3. Each letter once, each category once. Hope this helps.

5. How you interpret the categories and colors is up to you.

6. When you post your layout - post how you interpreted the letters and categories so that others can benefit from your creativity!

7. Your layout must be new as of today and is due no later than midnight the last day of the month.

8. Please allow public embedding for your projects so that they can be posted on the front page.

9. Digital or Paper - doesn't matter.

10. Stacking is permitted. Use your project to play in as many challenges as you can make it fit!

11. Random.org decides the winner. No voting pressure!

A Word About Comments

I don't want to limit the number of players or exclude anyone who wants to play, but there is a certain realistic limit to how much time you can spend commenting on projects. Most members I've talked to here believe that it's better to get a genuine, heartfelt comment from someone who really wants to leave it as opposed to a "drive by" from someone who is only commenting because they feel like they have to. If you want to leave love, then by all means, you should do that. If you don't have time to do more than just drive by and wave, then we all understand that too. Jami Bishop, a wise woman in another forum says, "REAL LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT." I'm stealing her words and adding them here."

And, as always...HAVE FUN!

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

Choose One from each category. Do not use the same letter more than one time.

Color
A - Aqua

B - Blush

C - Cardinal


Word - Topic
A - angels
B - babies
C - cherish

Technique - Product
A - antique embellishment
B - brads
C - crinkled paper

Here's my sample for you to peek at!
A = Antique Embellishment (the little valentine card)
B = Blush (the color)
C = Cherish (the metal tag and topic)

I already have a question... do we have to complete 3 layouts or can we choose to do as many: 1, 2 or 3, that we want?

The PLAY is to create ONE layout, but you are welcome to create as many as you would like, provided that they all follow the guideline.

It's never come up before, so if you should choose to do more than one, let me know which one you want to turn in for your entry.

That's a good start, now you just need an A and a C. One technique, one word. :-)

You're up and running, which is more than I can say for ME!
