Hello Everyone and welcome to the March Color Challenge!

This palette felt like spring to me.....iris and lilacs. I am calling it "Sweetness" but if you choose to make a mini kit, you may call yours whatever you like. ;-)

The color challenge works like this:
** CREATE A LAYOUT -- use the mini kit I created or any kit in the chosen palette
** CREATE A MINI KIT from the palette to share with us (please put the download link in your gallery post, not here in the thread)
** post your layout and/or kit it in the Color Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g535-color-challenge.html)

Then come back to this thread and leave us a link to your gallery post so we can all take a look and leave some love.

As a participation reward, we offer a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month! So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off of every purchase made next month! No coupons required, the discount will automatically apply to your purchase(s). It's important that you're registered in the forum using the same e-mail address.

Here is my starter mini for March:

Thanks for the beautiful mini this month. Terrific palette. When looking through my photos for something to use with this kit, I ran across the old photo from 1954. The colors had fade but still had hints of them. I used my PSE11 software to bring back some of the colors without over processing them. I love that there are hints of jade green, grey, creme, and taupe in it... very similar to what is in the color palette for this month. ;)

Pat, thank you for the Sweetie mini. It is beautiful!!

03-20-2013, 04:41 PM
WOW! Hasn't there been some outstanding layouts for this challenge. I'm still working on a mini kit, but it seems to be growing larger by the day. I think it's because I'm enjoying working with these great colours.

03-20-2013, 08:49 PM
Oh, my, I totally forgot to post here. Sorry about that.

Besides the layout I created with the gifted mini, I was able to make a small mini kit for you all here to have some fun with.
I have put the download link in the gallery with the preview seen below.
Thank you for a wonderful mini and color palette to play with.

I am totally in awe of the fantastic pages created with this months mini.
It amazes me how many ideas can come from the same mini. Awesome!
And the created mini kits are amazing as well. Way to go. Beautifully done.
Have a beautiful day.

thank you for the wonderful mini, this is what I have done with it! My self and my husband in the early days way before we were married

03-22-2013, 12:44 PM
Diane, I love the kit, some of my favorite color in the palette. Also, thanks to everyone that submitted kits. They are all wonderful. And a special "Thank you" to Saskias for the heart I used in this layout.

Here is my page.

Also, here is the text in case it's hard read:

Tate, when you were 2 years old you watched Little Einstein videos at Gram-Papa’s house. One of the videos taught you about caterpillars and butterflies. You learned the meaning of metamorphosis, chrysalis and migration. You learned that caterpillars become butterflies.
From the same video you also learned to sing Ode to Joy from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
Namaw bought you a habitat with caterpillars and you watched them create a chrysalis and then become butterflies. They stayed in their own house for several days so you could watch them up close.
Then, in their last days as butterflies, you took them outside so they could fly away. These pictures show one of the butterflies you let fly away.

I've created a kit for this which you can download on my blog, and I've also done a layout with it.
