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)

THIS IS A MEGA PROGRESSIVE THAT WILL LAST FOR 3 FULL WEEKENDS. THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE RAKS.ONE WAY TO WIN IS TO COLLECT THE MOST POINTS, WIN A RANDOM PICK, OR ONE NEWBIE IS GUARANTEED A PRIZE

At the selected time of the day 5 PM EST , 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.

This weekend our progressive will be related to NBA championships. The link to the list to find the answers to the questions can be found here

There will be rounds next weekend, as well. Plus with this being a bonus mega round you'll have one week to complete the layout. Feel free to try out previous rounds before they close.

Previous Rounds for MEGA Progressive
Progressive June 2012 Round 1 - closed

Progressive 2012 Round 2 - this closes Saturday June 30th at 5 PM eastern

Progressive 2012 Round 3 - this will close July 1 at 5 PM eastern

Progressive June 2012 Round 4 at 6 PM - this will close July 7th at 6 PM


Progressive June 2012 Round 5 - this will close July 7th at ???

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 can be 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 moment to play. For this mega large progressive you have one week to finish any project.

Some sneak peeks:
*Step one: find a sketch or a LO to scraplift or freestyle
**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
******Step six: adding the title
*******Step seven: journaling/doodling time


THE RULES:
*Your lo has to be new as of the day the challenge, hence a progressive challenge.
**Upload your lo here within one week of the last direction.
***Single or double page LO's are fine. Any size is allowed too! Paper only as the directions are for that type.
This month (JUNE) is for points! Every layout you complete (one per round) earns you points. Extra points for finishing 1st, 2nd,or 3rd and winning a poll or vote plus encouraging a friend to play along
****When the challenge weekend has been closed I will PM all participants and each person that completes a page will select their favorite project. Voting earns you more points
*****Don’t vote for yourself as you will points for PMing a vote..
******You can start the challenge at anytime within the the week.
*******You MUST follow each direction step-by-step one at a time, NO sneak peeks.

Dang! I'm running behind. I'm a mystery shopper (in my spare time) and I did 4 shops today that I have to upload reports on. I'm having a bit of an issue with my scanner so I'll be back when I'm done with that!!
