Bling is anything sparkly, glittery or shiny. The more the better. Is it possible to overbling? I don't think so but would love to see it done.

You can share all the blinged layouts you want, either yours or someone else's, but only one entry per person and the entry has to be your own. If you make a blingier layout and wish to change your entry, make sure to tell me to swap yours out for the new one.

November's Blingiest layout is
2dogs's To Imagine layout.

December's Blingiest layout is
Angelica's The little moments


January's Blingiest layout is
Angelica's Beautiful Princess.


February's Blingiest layout is
~*~Sandy~*~'s ~Enchant~.


March's Blingiest layout is
Alteredgeisha's CHERISH

April's Blingiest layout is
Dragonflys' 100% ANGEL


May's Blingiest layout is
ScrapperK's Where's Tallie?


This challenge will run to the 24th, when we'll start the voting process again. This time, you will be voting for layouts with more bling that last month's winner. See the catch? This challenge is also about using bling and sharing bling techniques, but most of all having fun!

Vote for up to 5 layouts based on blinginess. You can vote for your own layout, why else enter it here, right? Poll will be set up on the 28th.

Please try to leave comments for the below entries.
=======================

Please remember to list all the stuff you used in your layouts in your gallery description, especially the bling since they don't scan or digitize well.

And to enable "Allow Public Embedding." If there’s no image or the image is smaller than the others, it’s because these images don’t allow public embedding.


======================

Please make sure to say that your post is an entry or for sharing. I get confused too easily.

Don't be a love/comment hog. If you're not able to leave loving/comments on the other entries, please don't enter this challenge. Sorry but that's part of the rules for this challenge.

======================
INSTRUCTIONS ON USING EMBEDDED CODES:

I couldn't find Megan's instructions so here's mine until I find Megan's:

>>Click on the image you want to get an embedded code for.

>>Below the larger image, click on the "tab" that has "Link/Embed"

>>Then select "IMG CODE (for forums and bulletin boards)"

>>I recommend selecting the largest setting in size.

>>Then only click in the box under "Copy and Paste the Embed Code Below:" Just clicking in the box will copy that info to your clipboard. After clicking in the box, you'll see Copied to Clipboard.

>>Now come back to this thread and paste.

There are 57 layouts entered in April's Bling challenge. I randomly selected 13 layouts. Just clicked on layouts from various weeks of that challenge.

Most of these layouts did NOT have 57 or more comments to them, which they should have.

I understand missing some and posts not going through. Or something happening that keeps people from having the time or opportunity to post comments in the gallery. If something did come up, it's only polite to let people know. Most everyone here I find to be very friendly and understanding. Okay, that's covered.

Of the 13 layouts I randomly selected, there were 6 people that didn't post any comments to any of these. Maybe to other layouts but not these layouts. Four others that only left a comment on only one layout of the 13. Six more that only left 2 comments out of 13. That's really 16 people out of 57, which is more than a quarter of the people who entered.

On the good side 11 people left comments on ALL 13 layouts and another 4 only missed one layout.

I don't want to pull out any entries at this point nor will I name names. But I will name the 11 people that were very diligent:

2rowdyboys
BjH
ErlaPerla
Gijane5150
Luci-scraper
Mindyradio
Scrap_a_lot
Scrapperlicious
Scrappinsteph
Sibboo
Spikeka

Since I'm not pulling any layouts out, I think it's only fair that these 16 layouts not be in the poll. I know which ones. Please do not PM me to find out which ones are disqualified. I will not tell ANYONE.

I normally shy away from rules but when they are there, and reminders put up as frequently as I did this month, there's no excuse. Sorry, end of subject.

I think so....maybe since you have been stern about it they will know that you are going to enforce it...but it is up to you this is just my opinion.

On the April Bling Challenge thread it was suggested by Helena Philips to do 3 strikes and then they're banned from this challenge. I agree but two strikes. So everyone gets one "get-out-jail" card here. After that, I'll ignore their posts here.

I am probably one to blame,I do so many challenges that I can't leave comments daily on all of the threads,so I now try to leave comments when all lo's posted at the end of the challenges to leave love,I didn't know u had to do it daily,or weekly,I try though to do it before the challenge end,if I am error then I am sorry for anyone I didn't leave a comment on.

Please don't anyone get upset. The ones that didn't try KNOW who they are. If you tried, you KNOW that you did!

I didn't make the list of those diligent either! I even missed entering some people. I make mistakes and over look things, too. I just looking for the effort.

Updated to here in the second post on this thread. Please always check your image in the opening posts after each update, especially if your entry is in this week's (second post).

Also remember to leave comments on the other entries. Don't be a love/comment hog. If you're not able to leave loving/comment on the other entries, please don't enter this challenge. Sorry but that's part of the rules for this challenge.

I will be posting this info each time I update. Not to upset anyone. This is really a simple challenge and alot of people are making a huge effort to make sure they're leaving comments. So it's just wrong not to extend the same courtesy.

"If you're not able to leave loving/comment on the other entries, please don't enter this challenge." This means if you know or are pretty sure it's gonna be too much effort to leave comments on other layouts, then don't enter this challenge. If you think you can leave comments on other layouts and enter this challenge but something comes up that keeps you from leaving comments, please just post here that you're having problems. Things happen to all of us.

I've also gone to great lengths to make tracking entry layouts as easy as I can.

For those that don't want to or don't have the time to go through the thread, they can check out what new layouts were added weekly in the opening posts. I know I'm made mistakes there, too. I've missed some layouts or entered some people twice.

If anyone knows of a better way, I'm willing to try them in May's challenge.

Been thinking about your questions, Vivian, and I think you were extremely fair as you posted the rules in the 1st post and left numerous reminders so we all had the option of joining in and playing by your rules or not joining if we felt your rules weren't fair.

Thanks, Bonnie. I never enjoy being hard but I also hate feeling like being taken advantage of or others being treated unfairly. I know I need to get over that and be more "giving" and "forgiving." God's not done with me.

I'm still open to any suggestions to make tracking, posting, etc. easier. I know that not everyone has enough online time and posting can be hit or miss.

I understand when a layout is missed, I've had that happen to me but it becomes obvious who is making an effort and who isn't.

Okay I am going to defend myself here! Why I suggested this?, I have been dying to play in this challenge for ages, but I knew I wouldn't have the time to comment on all the fantastic layouts and as it's stated in the RULES:

Don't be a love/comment hog. If you're not able to leave loving/comments on the other entries, please don't enter this challenge. Sorry but that's part of the rules for this challenge.


It's like any other challenge that have rules, like you can't enter a doodle challenge if you don't have doodles on your layout, Multi pic layout and have only one photos, and so on .....

But because it's stated in the rules and Viivan, but up sooo many reminders to comment, there was really no excuse!

And I wasn't saying anything about players who leave it till last minute to comment, as far as I can see that is still within the rules!!!

I don't think it's very fair if a few of the members don't comment and rest do!!

I ALSO do have a life outside sb.com , but I enjoy taking part in challenges to help give my mojo a kick up the bum!

And if LIFE catchs up with you and you no longer are able to leave comments all you have to do is post on thread that your sorry but you can't keep up with the comments!!!

I am sorry if I have offened anyone, but I felt sorry for Vivian as she puts a lot of effort in, with hosting this challenge!

I'd like to enter the May challenge...not sure if this lo would qualify - I used rhinestones as flower centers except for the two large charms on the pink flowers and then I painted & embossed the flourishes with glittery embossing "tinsel". Please let me know if I'm entering the challenge correctly ....Robbie

Ok, I might not have a right to jump in on the comment/no comment discussion b/c i didn't participate in last month's bling challenge, but I do participate in the comments required challenge (also hosted by Viv). I try to make an effort to make a comment that is personalized to the person's page and i am really grateful when others do the same. When I get comments, I appreciate the ones that are just praise on my LOs ("great LO," "nice job," etc.), but I find the ones that mention a specific thing about the LO most helpful. For example, I was really unsure about using bling when I first started. I hadn't even thought to use bling until I came to sb.com ! When people let me know what it was about my LO that caught their attention or impressed them, I was encouraged to try that technique again and I am also encouraged to continue stepping out of my comfort zone.

Wow, sorry so long...If you just want a short version see below.


SUMMARY (if you don't want to read my speech):
It is really helpful (and really appreciated) when you leave personalized comments rather than just saying "nice LO" all of the time.

Yay! For bling! Try to add as much as you can, in as many forms as you can.

Thanks, Helena. Over all this is fun for me. I hate when I goof and miss layouts or double post people, etc. That's why I also post that people check after my updates.

Updated to here in the second post on this thread. Please always check your image in the opening posts after each update, especially if your entry is in this week's (second post).

Also remember to leave comments on the other entries. Don't be a love/comment hog. If you're not able to leave loving/comment on the other entries, please don't enter this challenge. Sorry but that's part of the rules for this challenge.

I will be posting this info each time I update. Not to upset anyone. This is really a simple challenge and alot of people are making a huge effort to make sure they're leaving comments. So it's just wrong not to extend the same courtesy.

I'll pick some entry layouts at random to check on who has been leaving comments and who hasn't been. I'm getting to be like Santa! Who's been naughty and who's been nice. I understand when a layout is missed, I've had that happen to me but it becomes obvious who is making an effort and who isn't.

I'm going out of town tomorrow and coming back either Thursday or Friday. I'll do my best to keep this updated while I'm in Florida but won't be online as much.

Here's a bit of enabling. And no waiting for glitter glue to dry.

I've only gotten the solid glitter mat stack so far and plan on rewarding myself with the 12x12 stack after I accomplish some goals.

Usually I am not very "blingy". But I saw the stickers at Target and the lo just popped into my head!

Has anyone noticed that without exception all the winning LOs have been girl LOs? I only have sons and I find using bling for boys much harder, anyone else have this problem?
