Remember when you were a kid and you were playing a game that wasn't going the way you wanted and you'd yell "DO OVERS!" so you could get another turn and maybe get a better roll of the dice? That's the same idea here. It's a Lift Challenge, and the idea is pretty simple.

Go back through YOUR OWN LAYOUTS - they can be posted in your gallery or ones from before you began posting projects. Your task it to find a layout that you wish you could "do over." It doesn't matter why you wish you could do it over - maybe you wish you had used a different color scheme, or added more photos, or used fewer photos, or bigger photos, or different embellishments, or a different title, or just wish you had the skills then that you do now to do your wonderful photographs justice.

Well, today, you get your wish. The layout you pick is your target lift, and your assignment - should you choose to accept it - is to DO IT OVER!


Post your original before your post your lift and explain why you want to do it over.

No sign-up required. Just jump in and have fun whenever you're ready!


I am not the comment police. I know we all get busy and get behind. But we all like to get comments on our projects, so do your best to give love when you get love.

Layouts must be new as of today and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time November 30 .

And, as always - the primary goal is to HAVE FUN!

EXAMPLE

Original
Follow Your Dreams

I wasn't happy with this almost from the get-go. The yellow flower spray is beautiful, but it doesn't have very good balance. I love the crochet flower, but it just wasn't functioning with the vine. And I finally realized that I was basically unhappy with the whole color scheme - it's just too DARK for the way these photos make me feel. I love the photos and the basic skeletal design.

DO-OVER

I have a layout that I just recently created that I want to do-over! I created it in attempt to use up some old stash and I did, everything on it was old product, even pbrought out a punch I haven't used in a long while, but the finished product didn't make me happy. :0(
Hopefully I find time to do it!

oh I was hoping you would do this one again. I have plenty I would do over but there is a special one I need to do this time.

I'll have to take a photo of it tomorrow before I take it apart.

My Original:

Granddad 1903 ~Scraps of Darkness~ By NMscrapper

The makeover:

Granddad 1903 II By NMscrapper

I wasn't really happy with the paint in the original, so I changed it up along with several other elements, looking for a more elegant page. Now, seeing the together, I'm not sure . . .

Yep. Because that's part of the FUN, don't 'cha know? It gives us an opportunity to show how far we've come in our scrapbooking journey.

Don't worry, Doreen, my dear. This month, I'm going WAY back in my scrapbook archives... I'm going to do one that is so old, it's practically stone age.

Way back before I knew about ink, paper trimmers, or even FLOWERS!

Who is going back to when we used decor scissors on our pictures!? I would love to, but I can't find the negatives. Maybe I can come up with a way to cover up the fact that I did that.

I actually kinda like those ones!
They were cute even and besides, it show how much scrapbooking has changed over the years.
The one I want to re-do is just plain ugly! LOL!
