The Theme for this month is Music!
It can be anything: a photo of someone singing, dancing; maybe your favorite popstar, just find that musical photo!
This photo you will send to your partner, who will make a LO with it.
Sign in now if you like to play along.

12th of March I will announce the partners.

(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 (http://godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24481).
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Miscellaneaous Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=517)
(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!

All participators receive a bonus in a PM, first week of the next month.
This challenge runs through March 31.

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html).
Also... here's (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html) how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Let me know if you want to participate this lovely challenge!

A day to late, but here are the partners:

BrightEyes - hivart
jakrn - sparkles

Let's hear the Music!
This is not the Lyrical Challenge, so no need for a song.
But a few musical notations would be nice ;-)
Look for a photo with someone making music or dancing!
Give your partner some hints like who is on the photo and what he/she is doing, so your partner can make a title and some journaling :wink:

But most of all: have fun!!

Hi Els!
How do I send my photo to Kay, please?
Cath... :no:

Els AW

:wink: Sorry, my instructions were not complete:

PM your partner your e-mailadress, so she can send the photo to you.
And you can send yours to her in reply.

:wub1: Is there a little ghost on this forum that mess up the PMs???? :twitcy:

Bright Eyes
03-14-2013, 08:58 AM
Els... not sure but there seems to be a bit of something going on around the PMs lately.

Hivart got my PM and I got her email with photo... :biggrin: Send mine on to her. Now to find the right kit for doing the precious photo she sent to me.

Els AW

:wink: I'm glad there is more than PM to get contact with eachother!

Hope to see your LO soon!
I will make my 'inspiration LO' tonight!

Well, I have the answer to some of the questions about messages and where they are....

Hivart's message was sent to me from the GALLERY - which does not go into the Private Message at all! Found it when I checked out my gallery.

Another message was sent to me via clickiing on MY AVATAR from the FORUM. That does not go into the Private Message section at all either. This is not area where we are sent notices about them... so they can be overlooked. I seldom check for messages there - so please send messages to me via Private Messages - which I do get notified about.

NOTE: if you click on MY NAME - by the avatar - a pop-up menu comes up and you can select to send a Private Message.

So it pays to check the different areas that we can recieve messages - now that we know not all of them go to the PM section. :wub1:

Oh... my heart skipped a beat when I saw the beautiful photo of Hivart's father playing his violin. It is a truely vintage photo done in sepia tones. I was delighted to find that I had Maria Designs - Bouquet de Music kit in my stash. I wanted a monochromatic page so that the beautiful and precious photo took center stage... so to speak.

Cath, thanks for being my partner in this fun swap. And thanks to Els for hosting it, too.

BTW, if any one needs to find kits with music elements/papers, do a 'search' in the shoppe using the word 'music'. I was amazed to see the many kits that have music in them!! :biggrin:

Els AW

This is really beautiful!
Yes, Bouquet de Music is a very fine kit to work with (actually I am making the Inspiration Lo with it at this moment), and this is also a very special photo!
Thanks for joining the Swap Challenge Kay!

Sparkles is my partner for the March Swap Challenge. Her photos are from the Winter Jam 2013 in Des Moines, Ia. R3D (Red, RED) is an American rock band known for their Christian rock music, which incorporates alternative rock, hard rock, heavy metal, and post-grunge types of music. It was fun doing a bit of research about the band for this page and I learned something interesting in the process! Thanks Sparkles!

I used 1 background paper from Black 'n White Touch kit by Didine Design.
