Welcome to Day 4 of the "Be My Valetine" blog hop

Today, I thought I'd share a simple layout.  It's not my usual style of scrapping.  This is more linear for me.  I love more shabbiness.  Also, I really wanted to show off the photograph.  This is my daughter when she was 5 months old--she's now 25, almost 26!  Wow, how time flies. 
This layout is called a "monochromatic" layout.  Only ONE color is used on about 95% of the layout.  I did use 2 strips of striped paper to show off the stripes in my daughter's shirt. 

So, the CHALLENGE for you is to create a layout in ONE color--it can be any color and of any event--it doesn't have to be about love or Valentine's day.  You can use a TINY bit of another color/or pattern.  You can use as many embellishments as you want, but they MUST be the same monochromatic color.  White does not count.  And, to add to the challenge, I want you to include journaling on strips of paper.  

Each day of the hop, I'll be giving you a challenge for a chance to win some great scrapbooking goodies from me!  (still putting things together for a photo).  Everyone who completes all the projects will have a chance to win this prize.  Please upload your project to  My Challenge Thread.  I hope you'll play along.
