Shop and Crop Layouts

Had alot of fun doing these lovely layouts designed by the Shop and Crop Team....thanks girls...looking forward to the retreat...

A New Month

And with that, there is a new challenge over at ScrapAWhile

We would like you to do a monochromatic layout of any colour-your choice and I would also like you to think of a song title as your title.Now you are allowed to use small amounts of a neutral colour such as white or black but it should mostly be your main colour.
If you are unsure of what 'monochromatic' is, it means the one colour but with varying shades of that one colour.
We can't wait to see what you all come up with, you have until the end of March to complete and don't forget to upload to the ScrapAWhile gallery.
