    Howdy and a Merry April to you all! I am Patty Anne (justPattyAnne) and I have the fun time to host this month's Simple Challenge. This offers a chance for a quick and easy challenge that doesn't require a lot of extra techniques or complicated software.

    RULES: This challenge runs from April 1 to April 30, 2020.

    TWO lucky scrappers will be randomly chosen to win a $5 coupon to the NBK-Design store. You must use 100% of NBK-Design Products and the layout must contain a color pallet of Black and White plus 1 Color. Post your layout in the NBK-Design Gallery and in this forum, and link your layout to the gallery.

    I love how dynamic a B&W layout or image is when it has the pop of one color added - whether a bright primary color or a pale shade, it's always so striking when set against the black & white.

    So, my challenge is to create a layout that has a color pallet of Black & White Plus 1 Color.

    I've used purple for my added color in this image of my daughter.

    I had a romp through several of Nicole's "Art Crush" collections for my layout:
    Art Crush No.24 (background, confetti, doodles, tag and styles).
    Art Crush No.21 Artsy Bits & Pieces (bow, string & hydrangea).
    Art Crush No.20 Things (butterfly on a string) & Artsy Bits & Pieces (watercolor stain).
    Art Crush No.18 Artsy Bits & Pieces (chevron artsy bit & mandala) WordArt (stamped post card paper piece).
    Art Crush No. 2 (Mask, Magic Lights, Sprinkles, Enamel Music notes, Painter's Toolbox).

    Now go and have lots of fun! I can't wait to see what you create.

    @TrishD , your POP of yellow on that dapper fellow is so dynamic, I fully expect him to step right on out of that image. This is exactly the kind of image I had in mind when I thought of this challenge.

    @SharLamb , the powder blue is perfection for your snowy image against that blue sky. I commented in the gallery, but let me say again what a brilliant touch the diagonal background is.

    Thank you both for participating!!! I truly appreciate it! Merry April Fool's Day to you too!

    LOVED this challenge - it was a great opportunity to learn new tricks in Photoshop and felt like a great tribute to the awesome dress I am wearing :)

    My GOODNESS! Everyone's pages are all so fantastic! I've left you love in the gallery, but I have to say again that you've all totally rocked this challenge.

    @Cherylndesigns , your gold flower & leaf still catch my eye everytime I'm scrolling. They convey comfort somehow, perfect for the joyous family photo.

    @Janisn , I'm still blown away by your cleverness all the way through your page ... and that lightbulb...?!?! WOW! So very cool.

    @Danesa , I'm warmed that you played along and your delicate teal brushwork is so lovely encircling your family. Happy Happy Happy.

    @flowersgal , It takes that beautiful bold yellow to be able to stand out against that marvelous photo! LOVE the joyous energy this exudes.

    @Claire Grantham , you in your beautiful hot pink dress certainly does deserve a lovely setting and you've created it in this. I LOVE that you learned the selective coloring to pull it off. Way to go!

    @sharonb , it warms my heart no end getting to see your grandbaby and daughter! Your mask with the frame to bring the attention in tighter is perfect.

    @Eyeore , your cat looks almost like a fox in this photo ... and your soft brown has a metallic feel amid that black & white background.

    @wvsandy , I can almost feel & smell the air with the moodiness of your page. SO beautiful (and I have that song stuck in my head now - an old fave!)

    @Oldenmeade , I hope you do find time to play along!

    Again, thank you all for playing along in my challenge!!! I hope everyone is having a good and healthy week!

    I took this picture through a window that was decorated with a few shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day. Most of the ice is off the lake, but I like the remnants of tracks in the center. All products from NBK - credits in gallery.
