[Well, as we all know, the VLB challenge is going through some changes. Cathy, our amazing hostess of four years, has decided it is time to hand this challenge off to someone new. Well, she isn't really "new". We all know our Eileen and love her and she will be an awesome hostess for this group! I have enjoyed hosting for three months now, and will still be here playing along every month. Ya can't get rid of me, lol!]
Hi there! And welcome to the VERY LAID BACK Challenge! Please read this entire post before you sign up. For anyone new to this challenge, here's the idea: so many of us crave all the lovin' our neighbors leave when we do challenges, but sometimes we just want to create layouts and projects that have nothing to do with challenges (and still get some love!). Well, for this challenge, you can just create pages and other projects and link them here. You can follow my weekly challenges, but it's not a requirement. Basically, anything goes!
Here's the one and only catch:
YOU HAVE TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS' LAYOUTS AND PROJECTS. So, if you sign up, you are committing yourself to leaving comments as well as receiving them. To keep this from becoming an overwhelming task, I'm restricting the number of players to 35 or so.
This is not a one entry challenge. This is a month long commitment to post ALL your work and check out everyone else's. Please post projects only from this month. And please be aware that we can be REALLY CHATTY on this thread and the posts can add up really fast.
Every weekend, I'll post a new challenge. It'll be something really easy. If you have any ideas for new challenges, please let me know! I'm always looking for new ideas!
June challenge week 1: Let's make thank you cards, to honor Cathy! They don't need mailed, just post a pic to give her a smile..
June challenge week 2: Scrap your latest purchase.
June challenge week 3: Use a journaling block.
June challenge week 4: Build your page/card on a KRAFT background!
Easy enough, right? Again, I encourage you to post layouts and projects that don't follow the challenge. Just let your creativity flow and have fun!
