VP #1 April 2020


Designing Ninjas
Welcome to April, normally my favorite month of the year.
I have so much to celebrate this month: my birthday, my wedding day and my desigerversary.
So I ask you to join my virtual party while we stay all home (in good health I hope).

The challenge for this month is a slow scrap. This means that over the next couple of days I will post an new step for your layout.
Once all steps have been posted, you have until the end of the month to post your page and earn your wrapper point.
Have fun! And don't let the instructions limit you, please use your own creativity if needed.

Slow Scrap wedding inspired steps:
1. Something old. (This could be an old photo or an old kit or...).
2. Something new. (This could be a new photo or an new kit or...).
3. Something borrowed. (This could be a page to scraplift or a template or...).
4. Something blue. (This could be a paper, an element or in the photo. Can be just a touch or a lot).
5. And a penny in your shoe. (Add something round shaped to represent the penny, this could be paper or photo or element or...).

Here are the requirements that must be met for all PDW Challenges to receive points:
1. To receive points you must use at least one item from a Plain Digital Wrapper Designer- You can use retired PDW products, freebies, and store collabs. BUT the designers have to be still active (except in the case of collabs)
2. Be a new layout created for this challenge.
3. Be only entered in 1 challenge category.
4. Upload your layout to the Variety Pack Challenge Gallery and post the link and photo in this thread.
5. Your page must be posted by the last day of the month in order to receive points.

You will receive one Wrapper for completing the challenge and a Bonus Wrapper for using ALL PDW products if you keep track in the It's a Wrap Thread!!
Those add up quickly-and 20 points will get you a $5 gift certificate to the PDW store
