Back by popular request from the players. The 2013 Design Seeds Color Challenge.

Basically, it's an open ended color challenge where the rule is simply that you have to include EVERY color in the palette in some way on your project.

It's easy play - no pressure, no voting, no front page updating. It's a low impact forum! Just post by the end of the month and we'll see what happens.

Use the photo itself as an inspiration to a twist.

Here's our March inspiration. Enjoy the play!

Can items be altered too or simply layouts?

Sure, Victoria. It's whatever you want to do. This is a low key, no pressure, just have some fun and play with the color palette forum.

I still have to order my pics for this one! Hopefully I can remember to do that this evening...I'm trying to scrap right now, while watching the Daytona 500. "My" driver already wrecked , so I don't really have to watch closely.

hmmm...not too sure about this month. I am just not that big into green and don't see it happening. But I will put it on the back burner...you never know when creativity will strike!

Sorry that this month's concept isn't your favorite, Becky.

You COULD emphasize the browns and add just a touch of the greeens - maybe in some flower leaves or something.

See - brown page, yellow flowers, green leaves - and you're done. ? Maybe?

Pat...so funny! Great minds think alike! I had thought I could do a branch with leaves on the family group sheet. Wouldn't be anything exciting...but it would be done! Of course I could really try to come up with something...stretch myself to use a color I usually don't....right? That's what a challenge is....

Sure - green is such a neutral color, it's like the new beige almost.

I'm thinking about how to incorporate those doors and the lock/key combo.

Pat...yes green is a neutral...well some shades...like the new biege? Not in my world!

Yeah I want the elements somehow too. and I think I have an idea...if it will work with the LO. Of course I don't know what the LO will be yet!

Ok...I'll hush pain meds have kicked in and I get chatty!
