Welcome to the April Digi Dish Challenge. Are you ready to do some digiscrap baking?

I’m in New York! If you know me you know that I travel a lot, but this trip is different. It’s a ‘real’ vacation! I’m visiting my sister and my mum came as well! It was a gruelling 17 hour plane ride, delayed almost 2 hours and then I was held up at immigration, but I’m finally here and loving it. Only 1 week exactly and then I’m back to Hong Kong, but it’s wonderful!

Anyway, enough about me! Onto this month’s challenge!

For this challenge, you should create a layout using at least the ingredients listed on the recipe. You can then add your own ingredients to make the layout your own! There is also a “Want More?” ingredient and an “optional” ingredient to add a little more to the recipe. They are both optional but are fun:) So, what are we waiting for?

Here is the recipe!

photoHI! Amanda here:

Welcome to the March Spiritual Challenge!

For this challenge in light of the season, I have chosen the following verses for inspiration:
“14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, thus must the Son of man be lifted up,
15 that every one who believes on him may [not perish, but] have life eternal.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whosoever believes on him may not perish, but have life eternal.
17 For God has not sent his Son into the world that he may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through Him.” John 3:14-17

I call this passage the Gospel in a nutshell. You may use the part that speaks most to you.

You can use which ever version of the bible you have for the verse. Different versions have slightly different wording for each verse.

Here are the guidelines for this challenge:

(1) Create a layout based on the featured verse.
(2) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(3) Please post your layout in the Spiritual Challenges gallery HERE.
(4) Post the layout here in this thread and a link to it in the gallery so we can leave you some love.
(5) HAVE FUN!

This challenge will run through Mar. 31.

Here is a coupon for $1.00 of any Faith-spiration© product in my shoppe to use for this challenge, if you wish. This is optional.  Smile

Hello everyone, Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Digital Design here, I will be your host this month. Well we are well into the year hard to believe it is April already!!

The other contributors and hosts you know well if you’ve been a participant of past Progressives, Darlene of Studio4 Designworks & Ginger of Ginger of Gingers Scraps N Pixels.

So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week. A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap and I know lots of you like speed scraps, but may not have the time. So here’s how it will work.

On the first of each month, Prompt 1 will be posted, consisting of instructions for starting a scrapbook page that will then be built upon through additional instructions every 3 days.

The idea is to work along with the challenge as the tasks are being announced, each task to be completed & posted prior to starting on the next prompt. (Once you post a prompt’s results, you’re finished. Don’t change your work for that particular prompt.)

At the end of the third week, you should have a completed page!

It’s fine to start late or catch up if you miss a prompt. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one. It’s more fun that way!

I will be giving you a download that consists of either papers or ellies to work with on each prompt. By the end of the Challenge, you will have a great little kit that was created by myself and Vicki of Dana of Dana’s Footprint Designs & Ginger of Ginger’s Scraps ’N Pixels.

This month’s kit is called Spring Wedding  

Here is the preview of the whole kit you will receive for taking part in ALL the GDS April Challenges.

GDS_SpringWedding_prev

So to recap – here’s the order:

1. On the first day of the month we will post Prompt 1. Then, there will be a post every three days with a new prompt.

2. Add only the items listed in the prompt given. You may add/alter shadows at any time.

3. Once you’ve posted your layout for that particular prompt, it is done and you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous prompt layout following the new step for the next prompt.

4. We will post the prompts sequentially in the thread. If you have missed a prompt, it’s fine to start late or catch up. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one.

5. Post your layouts no later than midnight (EST) of the day before the next step is due – this will be every three days.

6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* gallery HERE.

7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your creations and leave you some love!

8. In lieu of a posting bonus, by the end of the challenge, you will have yourselves a nice little kit.

9. This challenge counts towards the Scrapping 7 Challenge!

PROMPT 1 – Tuesday, 1st April.

PROMPT 1

1. Zip 1 has 9 papers in it. Choose one background paper, then you may choose up to another two, place them where you want (layered.) We are going to use a blended mask this month, I have created one for you to download if you don’t know how to make one.

Add your mask either length ways or cross ways..which ever suits your photo.
