March Layout Madness 2019

Recommended Posts

Yay! I can use the bird photo I'd been planning to use in Week 1. I'm making it black and white so I can use the papers I already picked. WooHoo! So far so good. Also I'm using CWX Good Mood template to help with the papers. I can tell this is going to be an easy week! :) Yup, easy. :D

I duplicated the photo and blended one copy into my BG then lightened the top photo and clipped it to a frame.

6 papers.  One bathtub photo of Bo, altered with some of Angie's photo styles.  That was not too bad.  Wonder what tomorrow will bring??

I hope it's not too late to join in...I just found this challenge yesterday and thought it would be a good way to keep me moving on all of my vacation photos that I'm sooooo behind on.  Here is LO #1 - Anchorage

Dumb question...is it OK to do more than the required or do we have to stick to the exact number, i.e. I have 5 embellishments instead of 4?

Its not to late to join in and so glad to have you join us :) If it says 4 embellishments then to use 4 but on the last task it usually says 'add any finishing touches' so you can add extra embellishments then :)

I agree with what Jane said, I rely pretty heavily on that very last task for these slow scrap layouts, where it usually will say add any finishing touches.  I follow the tasks pretty well up to the last, and then if I think my layout really needs something more, I'll add it the last day.  Also, it's NEVER too late to jump in!  I'm usually behind on my layouts for these, even by a week or two.  If you want to be in the running for a prize, you just have to upload all the layouts by the end of the month!

Awww, Diane, Laraine, Jane... these are the LO's I can see posted just on this page, and all of your layouts are beautiful so far.  I'm wondering which papers you will choose to pull out? 

Yikes, once I get caught up, hopefully this evening, I will follow all the steps and post thumbnails.  Even though I now know the twist in the plot, I'll follow the tasks!

This isn't a dumb question!!  This type of challenge is more literal and specific.  So, if it says 4 embellishments, use only 4.  (although I will copy an embellishment and use it multiple times and only count it as 1 😎)  However, if it calls for 6 papers, you can use paper templates or layout templates (for blending/layering) even though it doesn't say to use them or not to.  With this said, there is no SG Police 🚓 so, in the end, it's up for your interpretation.  Have fun and enjoy!!

I will now look at my Carefully (VERY Carefully) Constructed layout and see which paper to eliminate.

Yes, Diane, I see how very carefully you chose and arranged EACH and EVERY one of those SIX papers.

Ok, I think I got it - here is mine so far with 2 less papers and 1 less embellishment.  If I read your responses correctly, the extras are actually hidden just waiting for my  "finishing touches" if needed.

Yup, at least you, Conda, understand. Sigh. :D 
Meanwhile, I see Silly has joined in the food fight. Mikelle, you'd better protect that uniform!

Well.  In our defense, Mikelle DID suggest the tomatoes.
