Welcome to the monthly Monochrome Layout Challenge for APRIL.

Here are the basics of how MONOCHROME works.
************************* **

1. Monochrome means "of one color." Each week has a color which you are to create a layout around. Aside from the listed neutral palette, this is the only color tone allowed in your layout.

2. It must be obvious that your intention is to create a one color layout, so the only "color" of your layout must be the weekly color and it's corresponding darker and lighter tones and shades. Any other colors must come from the neutrals palette.

NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE 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."

*****Layouts using colors other than the color of the week and the neutral palette are not considered monochrome and will not be included for the voting. Make SURE your layout conforms to the specs for this particular challenge!

3. Twists are added for your amusement and to help you push your project to the next level. If you complete the twist, your page gets an extra vote at the end of the month.

4. The challenge weeks can be completed in any order, and you are not required to complete all four weeks. This is a challenge by choice - do one, two, three, or all four weeks. Do them in whatever order you want. And if you decide that you want to complete ALL the month's layouts in one week that is perfectly fine. Whatever works for you!

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


6.
I am 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.

7. Layouts must be new as of the first of each month and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time the last day of the month.

8. Random.org decides the winners. There's no voting pressure, just pure fun!

READY? Then let's go! Have Fun!

April - the month of fools and foolish choices, when pranks and practical jokes take a front seat to the serious and somber. April - the month when the rains come and the rivers rise and the puddles in our yard make us wonder if we'll ever see the sun again. April - the month when we plow up our gardens, smell the dark rich dirt, and plant our hopeful expectations of spring blossoms and summer fruits. April - the month when spring officially arrives as the redbuds, dogwoods, and crabapples explode in glorious bloom. April - the month when hope is alive and anything is possible.

Enjoy these, and make sure to spend some time on your porch watching the world go by.

Ok. I have to go feed DH because he's whining.

I've got all my hosted challenges up but this one. I'll be back in an hour or so and get the specs up here, but I have to go stand at the stove right now.

Back in a bit. Try to have fun without me. It'll be hard, I know.

I'm hoping I will have some scrap time this month- after the past 2 weeks I need some therapy- life has been a nightmare roller coaster to say the least complete with loops & twists.

If anyone is interested- I've posted an April BOM challenge...
