Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works. It's time the March 2013 "Less Is More Challenge!

For this month's challenge, I've created a little mini with a little flair of fun. It soon will be Easter and I've created something a little more on the lines of traditional scrapping.

I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called EGGY EASTER. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit, leaving nothing out. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers. You can add journaling text or a title, but nothing more. You can duplicate items and use them over again, or clip to shapes that come native to your program. Be creative! And most important - have FUN!

Post your LO here in the "LESS IS MORE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1389--91less-is-more-92-challenge-gallery.html)http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1389--91less-is-more-92-challenge-gallery.html" gallery and then link your LO back here in this thread.

Download the mini kit HERE (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?3s82j673bxqxg2i).

Here is a preview of the mini kit. Thanks for playing along!

Have fun!

Kaye - well you did a fabulous job. Doesn't look like you had to think hard to me! This will be a tougher challenge for some because it has such a strong theme to it. But you rocked it!

I'm thinking on this!
Thanks as always!

Great jobs ladies. I know with a specific theme like this, it might now be as easy, but I'm loving what I'm seeing in the gallery. Left you some love there!

Wonderful kit Darlene. There are some great pages here. Wow.
Here is mine. I had a really hard time placing the flower element, so I decided to let Bella hold on to it. lol. I also did a lot of recoloring.

Brenda - that was a wonderful idea to let her hold the flower - very creative. I love the papers and the way you've layered them and changed the colour on one. Great job on the challenge!

Pam - You've added some lovely intricacies with your LO, like creating an egg with one of the papers and wrapping the ribbon around the flower. Those are great ideas and great job on the challenge!

I´m not the greatest fan of eggs and bunnies in my pages, but I did a page... a little bit crazy, but maybee my dog is hard enough to bring us some eggs in this cold days:((

I'm so sorry I haven't been as present this month. I'm working on a very big freelance job for a major national drug store chain here in Canada and it's taking up all my spare time. It's about a month long job and I'm right in the middle of it. But I'm taking a few moments here and I'm off to the gallery to look at all the wonderful "eye candy" I'm seeing being created this month!

This is my page.

Thanks for the kit! I didn't have any Easter pictures handy, so I used a poem.

Sorry for being late.....I thought I would try and post anyway so you can see that I used the beautiful Eggy Easter Kit you supplied for us. Loved this kit, thank you!
