Default April Blackout Challenge: April 9 - April 16 (Week Two)

Hey ladies! Let's keep this blackout party going!

Here's this month's Bingo card & thread:
http://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com/...ad.php?t=86699

You can drop any Bingo layouts you make into this thread for us to ooh and ahh over. You can also ask for feedback or tips 'n' tricks. This is just a chatter & share thread. You still have to post in the other forum in order to win your blackout coupon!

Please save your official 'Is this okay?' etc. questions for the thread here: http://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com/...ad.php?t=86712

I'm posting this thread here in our general forum so there's not confusion within the bingo forum what you need to post & where.

For the around the house prompt.

We are redecorading our front yard. Hendrik bought some flowers from the local scouts and he planted them in our front yard.

Love all the great layouts. Such great inspiration in this thread.

Bingo #4 - Favorite Font. I think I use this font on all my layouts - it's so easy to read.

Beautiful layouts everyone!

Here's mine for the 'pick a side and scrap it' prompt. I had a hard time with this one.

Is anyone having a hard time with any of the prompts? We can brainstorm some ideas for you if you're drawing a creative blank.

The "how does your garden grow vegetable/flower" challenge... I'm wondering... I just got the "Reading Garden" collab from the store - hmmmm... I think I'll post in the other forum to be sure it's okay if I don't do flowers/veggies. It's April in Maine - Mud Season... gardening won't be for another month or two! We still have snowbanks three feet high! lol

Kairyn, I'm doing my vegetable/flower challenge with photos from the pumpkin patch two years ago if that helps.

I ended up doing a homeschool layout of the kids when we were learning about seeds. The pumpkin patch works with the veggies though! Great idea!

Same here!

I was thinking about scrapping about me going rollerblading. It makes me calm and when I'm doing it, it gives me time to think things through. But I scrapped about that a few times already.
If I don't come up with anything else, I think I'm going to scrap that anyway.

The now and then challenge is also a hard one for me.
I barely have any old photos.

I lost 11 kilo (24.25 lb) so I wanted to scrap about that, but I'm using that for the 'succes stories' prompt.

Sarah you can also do a picture from now and 1 from 1 or 2 years ago. It doesn't have to be THAT old.

For reflect/refresh/renew, I'm doing a page about my One Little Word (theme) for 2017.

You could also do a year-in-review page from a previous year. I usually do this with my kids like this:

It's not even close to Christmas, but I couldn't resist scrapping a holiday photo.
This one is for the 'bonds of friendship' prompt. We used to work together, but not anymore. But we became close friends instead.
