View Full Version : Spring into Action - April 9th

Happy Spring Everyone!

Well, most everyone here knows that I always have a different kind of theme for each month and April is no exception. This month, we are going to

It’s a time where we're moving more, getting out more, and getting things done. The kids are probably going outside to play just a little more often and the flowers are blooming, the smell of Spring is in the Air!

Your challenge this month is to scrap a photo of an ACTION! Either a person, pet, or anything that has movement in the photo. (ie: a child playing, riding a bike, cleaning the house. The subject is pretty wide open here.)

Here is my layout using this month’s TDC Collaboration ‘A New Me’ (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/A-New-Me.html)!

These are a couple of my friends just standing around chit-chatting. The photo is the only one I could find to use for this challenge since my EHD died this week and so most, if not all, my photos are gone. As a side note, please backup, backup, backup.

Here’s what you got to do - Create your layout & come back here and link us up to your page so that we can show some love!

Here’s the fine print:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/) at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509)!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.
For more information about our Chickie Points System, please see this thread here (http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?34471-Chickie-Points-System%21).
The deadline for this challenge is April 30th.

My first challenge here, AND my first page here! Let me know if I did anything wrong. My page is about a woodpecker my husband and I have been watching. All the papers and flowers are from a couple of etc by Danyale kits. LOVE her stuff!

These are a perfect way to "show" an action. I never thought about all the things we miss capturing each day, what a great challenge! :)

Here be my take on this challenge: Our Spring always involves a family vacation in PV, Mexico. This here is a pic of hubby and his brothers enjoying an early morning walk on the beach.
