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 MOTIVATIONAL ROUND --- no points no prizes
At the selected time of the day Saturday 12 noon 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 hurricane names since I live in the beautiful state of Florda.And here's the list for 2012 names that we will use as answers to the challenge. Link
We will do a second round Saturday at 4 ish and Sunday at Noon and maybe even a 4th round time to be announced
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

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