Hi everyone, its Designs by Marcie hosting the Multiphoto challenge this month.  If your like me, you have been waiting for Spring to arrive and are very sad that its still South for the winter!  What happened?  It was here for like 2 days and it was glorious!  It was warm and my spring flowers started to bloom and then POW! The snow came back.  Noooooo  I want my spring.  I am so over snow for this winter!  Of course that may be in part because of my car.  I lost heat in it!  And at minus whatever in your car still frozen!  I did get a new thermostat put in and Yippee I had heat again.  A month later no heat  again!  New heater core….month later no heat.  :(  Mechanic tore it apart again and this involves removing the entire dash of my car.  He can not find anything wrong, but its blowing cold air in.  Just friggin wonderful… NOT.  I apparently have heat again now and I have everything crossed that it is completely fixed now.  He cleaned everything to get rid of the junk as all the parts were good.  Pray for me!  Its no fun driving 30 minutes to diving practice and then for my daughter to freeze on the way home.  Oh I had blankets in the car, but it just was not enough.  Ooh I got off on a tanget there, didn’t I?  Even though my spring is still South, I want to see spring so I would like to see flowers on all your layouts in addition to the 4 photos.  It can be more, but not less than 4. And do not forget your journaling so that we all know what it was about!

Hello everyone, Tasanee here aka Arizona Girl.

For this month’s Multiple Photo Challenge we are going to work on the “Rule of Three

The rule of three is to use 3 in some way to make the whole more appealing to our psyche.
This web page is a interior design page, but it is showing how the “Rule of Three” can be used to help design. We can take inspiration from that. My favorite example on the page is this home.

When done well it gives you that “Ahhh” feeling.

Here are some examples in digi scrap

Here Michelle (mkgilbo) used the “Rule of Three” to make a triangle around her inspirational title art.

Shayna (Shanya) use the “Rule of Three” by using three photos to draw our focus

Here I used the “Rule of Three” twice, once in gray paper strips and then again with the 3 flares.

Your challenge is to use the “Rule of Three” on a layout using 2 or more photos. Post your layout in the Multi-photo gallery and in the forum challenge thread for the multiple photo challenge.  (use the rule in whatever way works best for you).

Rules….

1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the Scrappin’7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Multiphoto Gallery HERE
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!
(6) HAVE FUN!
Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE
Also… HERE is how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

All who participate will receive this mini kit

If you complete all the challenges this month you will have this beautiful collab kit from the GDS team.

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

I’m trying to keep the digi dish challenges simple but also interesting! If you have any ideas for future digi dish challenges, I would love to hear from you!

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!
