Challenge ICON is April's Challenge Winner! Congratulations, Klweist!

Join Challenge Here: May ABC Challenge

Spec Details

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 for the month.

4. 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.

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

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

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

5. Digital or Paper - doesn't matter.

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

7. 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."

I think that's about it, or at least as much as I can think of right now. If you have questions, ask them.

And as always, HAVE FUN!

I'm so glad you added Mother so that we can honor mom's during May. And, lace would be a great element for mom, too..at least, for my mom. She's very feminine.

Thank you for hosting again.

I've got my sketch, photo, and papers for this with khaki, lace, and mother. I hope it turns out like the image in my mind. BUT, I may put it off to do some of the challenges for NSD. If you are joining in the hoopla of NSD, good luck and have a great time today.

Here my entry! I used khaki, lace, and mother. The lace I used was khaki colored and there is also a bit of blue lace in the center of the light blue flower. The layout is about my grandmother and a special book she read to me as a child. This was a hard layout to put together emotionally but the challenge spurred me on, so thank you for the inspiration!

I like this challenge, too! More people do this challenge than the design seeds. But I will play if there is interest from others!
