April Forum Game - A bit of this, A bit of that


Recommended Posts

A bit of this, A bit of that
 
This month's forum game is a mix of many different challenges, a different challenge for each day (Monday to Saturday).
 
At the beginning of each week I will reveal the challenges for that week, both in the image in post number two (just below this post) and in more detailed explanations in the thread. Most of the challenges are straight forward, the few that aren't will include more information to guide you.
 
Complete as many or as few challenges as you wish. Each layout/challenge you do complete is worth one entry in the prize draw. At the end of the month I will do a random draw and you could win one of three $5 Gift Certificates to use in the Scrap Girls Shop.
 
  • You are free to interpret each challenge in any way you wish.
  • Only layouts posted  in the Hodge Podge Gallery between 1st April 2021 and 11:59 pm ET on 30th April 2021 will count towards the prize draw.
  • You do not have to complete every challenge, unless you wish to.
  • You can combine challenges; however, you can only receive one entry to the prize draw for each layout.
 
Tracking
So I can easily track how many layouts you have completed I will need you to post links to your layouts in just one post. This is how you do it;
  • Reply to this thread with "I'm In!"
  • As you complete a layout, edit the post you created in step one.
  • Add your link to the post and make sure you include the date the challenge is assigned to.
See post number three for an example. If you need help with this please ask.

What on earth am I going to do with 7 April. My imagination is not that good.  😏

My dear, maybe if you chose some elements, for example hearts, stars, etc., and include those shapes as elements, or use a photo that contains stars, sky, etc., just an idea.
