Congratulations Susan!!  I have ordered your gift card so please let me know if you don't receive it.
______________________________________________________________________________


It's finally here Cherries!! Sorry it took me so long to get this challenge up! I hope you all have fun with it!

I don't know if this is nationwide but around here the cellular phone companies all have a distinct color they are known by. Commercials will really point this out as they will always use red to represent Verizon, hot pink to represent T-Mobile, blue to represent AT&T, and yellow to represent Sprint. Sometimes you don't even have to see the logo itself to know which of the four major cellular companies the commercial is for. And sometimes they'll even have speed diagrams with each color, showing of course that theirs is the one with the highest data speeds. Below are the cellular companies whose logos are black (or deep gray) and one color only.

 
 





So for this month your challenge is to use a white base, and then use black and pick only ONE color to use on your layout. And like the logos I want you to only use just that one color, no other shades of that color, just that one solid color. You may also use cream and gray if you like. The color you pick may be any of the colors from the cellular company logos above, or you may chose a color of your own. Just be sure that it is ONE SOLID COLOR ONLY.

This does not include the colors in your pic, but as a BONUS if your pic is black and white I will enter your submission twice!

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

Multiple submissions are allowed up to a limit of because there are so many colors to choose from!

You may combine with one other challenge that allows combining.

Post your submission to this thread by the end of the day October 31st. A random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Here is my page. I chose red for my color. Pic is of my sweet baby Sky at 8 months old wearing her red collar.

This was sounding really difficult--but then I scrolled down to your adorable layout, and it's amazingly inspiring!  Will have to try this.  Thanks for the challenge.

What an amazing job you did on this! I absolutely love all the white space with the touches of hot green, including that he is wearing that color in that awesome photo too!

 I love the chevron paper background with the touches of orange along with the touch of orange in the oval and the sentiment! Perfect!

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew it would be perfect for these Chapel Hill photos. I've been sitting on these papers and embellishments just to make such a page. Thanks for the inspiration!

Brandy I just love the way you used the hot pink with the black and white! I love the big heart with all the circles and all the hot pink and black accents are amazing!

I love how you used the hot pink from her uniform as your one color! It looks awesome with the black and white!
