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)


New info in red!!

Reminder to bring a friend!! Reminder to bring a friend!! 8 AM, 12PM, 5 PM on Saturday and 12PM and 3PM on Sunday.

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.

March will be a motivational round

You will need common scrap supplies and 2 or 3 pictures to be decided at the time of the challenge.

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 sketch/scraplift selection
**Step two paper selection and placement
***Step three add photos
****Step four add homemade flowers or embellishments
*****Step five add embellishments
******Step six add title
*******Step seven add journaling, doodling, or stitching stage

THE RULES:
*Your lo has to be new as of the day the challenge, hence a progressive challenge.
**Upload your lo here within 24 hours of the last direction (the exception is to the weekly progressive you have exactly one week to complete the page)
***Single or double page LO's are fine. Any size is allowed too! Paper only as the directions are for that type
****I will contact you after the challenge requesting send me a PM for your top TWO votes
*****Don’t vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for sending in your vote.
******You can start the challenge at anytime within the 24 hours
*******You MUST follow each direction step-by-step one at a time, NO sneak peeks

STEP TWO

1. Add a banner by cutting the background paper
2. background
3. Use decorative scissors on at least one side of the one of the papers
4. splattered background
5. do a mask [lightly ink or paint- I suggest using some spray on product- so it will dry quickly. Here's Irene Tan's how-to.
6. apply more than one stamp {hummm where is the trick ‘cause what will happen next!!!]\}
7. water distress in this style- Water Distress
8. moisten the edges and curl a side up
9. add stickles or glitter to the entire page, the edges, or select parts of the patterns
10. Create a stitched border of line on your paper. Here's some ideas
11. Either your project must be shaped as a large circle or it must contain a large circle with a lacey circle.
12. use a border punch on at least on of your papers
13. Use circle punches under some paper to give the page depth. Like this
14. burn the edges or use soot colored ink
15. Fabric for Background
16. tear the edges
17. Create a pattern paper by masking
18. crumble, wad, and then unfold and straighten
19. Mask and then Stencil
20. use ink, paint or even a marker to make your own polka dots if you use ink or paint share with the group what strange object you used to make the uniform pock-a-dots (I use bingo markers, bubble wrap, pencil tops)
21. Gabriella P's ruffled edge.
22. use six or more pattern papers
23. Use a double ring.
24. Paint on one or more of your papers
25. Use an old book or magazine page as one of your papers
26. Tea or coffee stain one of your papers

32. Be sure you end with 5 layers over your background paper. Check out Frank's how-to
33. Stitch a large circle

26. STEP FOUR: Butterflies have ALWAYS been popular so let's honor them with a step to create one. You can use a stamp or die cut but you MUST add to it. May it layered add transparencies to the wings or even add stamps but go the extra mile to give it a little home-made quality. Check out the flying unicorn for some amazing inspiration. Feels free to print out one of the many samples I have stored on page 70 of the progressive challenge, but again make it hybrid a little computer and a little you- home-made.

Me too I can't wait ...they told us we had to work Saturday for inventory probably 12 hours but our network was down today and didn't get working until lunch time so production lost 4 hours so they have to work Saturday (I don't have to work when production does usually) So hopefully I will be here for the progressive.
