A Progressive Challenge is done quickly and in steps.........it's like scrapbooking meets Simon Says with a touch of choose your group's adventure. Or it could be described as going to a virtual crop since we chat and scrap at the same time. Here's why a virtual crop can be great:
~*~ there's no pressure to buy more scrap supplies (like you need more)
~**~ it's from the comfort of your own home (including the scream/fighting kids, hubby that needs your help finding something you miss placed, crying baby, and bothersome calls from the MIL)
~***~ your supplies don't have to be packed and unpacked (because they're right where you left them- or at least that's where you thought you left it)
At the selected time of the day, I will give directions for you to follow approximately every 15 minutes until the challenge/layout is complete. I will not even know the how the layout will turn out because you all will help make decisions as I narrate a story. It’s like a choose your own adventure scrapbook challenge.
For today’s progressive we’re going to test our ability to follow “Addicted to Scrapbooking” by Nicole Humphrey. I will list her signs that you are addicted to scrapbooking and you will decide if you “have” or “have not” shown that sign of addiction.
If you want to play for points we have catch-up-athon to earn points and we have more progressive challenges Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We'll have a 1st and 2nd place winner plus a random winner to earn a little RAK.
catch-up-athon is here:
For today’s progressives you will need common scrap supplies and 1 or 2 or 3 pictures to be decided at the time of the challenge. The first step will be either using a sketch or scraplifting, so you can get a head start on finding what you'll want to use.
You must follow the steps and you should not peek ahead if you are doing the page after the fact. You must do what the step says, but you can do more if you would like. For example if the step calls for adding embellishments and you’re told to add two you could add three.
You can play with me at that time I give the directions or you can follow later following the order when you get a free chance.
Some sneak peeks:
*Step one: find a sketch or a LO to scraplift
**Step two: paper selection and placement
***Step three: adding pictures
****Step four: adding handmade embellishments adding including newest goodies
*****Step five: adding "more" to the page

*Your lo has to be new as of the day the challenge, hence a progressive challenge.

***Single or double page LO's are fine. Any size is allowed too! Paper only as the directions are for that type
