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:

Here is a sample of pastel, soft green and blue:

Trying to do Paris stuff in mini form is hard.....either this will be a book for Sierra to show her friends or it'll be an Xmas present to great-grandma or one of the aunts since none of us have made it there.

Dallas kids had lots of damage from hailstones larger than golf ball, but all are okay and the tornados missed them. The kids learned what "duck and cover" means as they were in school and no basements in Texas. It was a scary afternoon.

We had hail here too in Minnepolis but it was only nickel size...wasn't expecting that. Then we have influenza in the house....I'm hoping that I don't get it though - both my dh and grandson had 104 degree fevers, their bones hurt, freezing but yet they were dripping sweat and I had to help dh even move...Tj calls me "Mama, I want to come to house, I don't feel good, I want to sit with you" and he's three so he comes over and sits with me for hours and then we find out it's influenza the next day.

working on my layout tomorrow. However the paper I bought has a little bit of brown in it but is mostly shades of blue and green.

Can it only be blue and green?

Glenda, you can have a small accent color with the blue and green. Sounds perfect.

Carol, sure don't envy you with the flu in your home. Take care of yourself, too!

Great layouts and we have so many so early!

Enjoy Good Friday and the Easter weekend ahead.

There really are hundreds of shades and combinations of the blue and green families! I went a bit bold toward lime and turquoise because I just love those colors! I was worried they would be a bit too bright, but with a light blue thrown in and some brown they worked great for what I wanted. It's fun to see everyone's take on these colors!

Did a green soccer layout for the monochrome challenge - and that's about all I got accomplished. I came up with a great idea to index all my layouts and worked on it for about 2 hours. Had a good start at indexing all my pages, and you guessed it...it crashed. I spent another 45 minutes trying to recover it before I gave up. I had saved it about every five minutes, but when it crashed, it took everything! I guess when I saved, I should have gotten out of it and reopened, but I've never had a word file crash like that before.
grrrr.

You didn't miss my birthday, Nancy - I'm still celebrating Thanks for your wishes, too, Stacey.

Sure glad you are feeling better, Carol. That can really put a stop to your energy!

Happy Monday!

Pam I was wondering if you knew of any lss in your area? I loved the one near the mall in the brick store area and was sad to see it go.
We have a nice one in CR but I was thinking of coming to IC in the near future to J's, M's, HL, BF.
