Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist*You'll get an extra vote at the end of the month for stitching on your photo or photos. I'll also be announcing a 2nd twist on the 15th that will be worth double the points. That means you can have 2 entries this month.

2nd Twist*Post and play here and at the http://papermixingbowl.blogspot.com/

1) create one LO with 1st twist only - 1 extra vote

2) create another LO with second twist after the 15th - 2 extra votes

3) create one LO after the 15th with both twists - 3 extra votes

If you do both twists, either in two LOs or both in one LO, you get the three extra votes.



Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 1/1/13, and you have until 1/31 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)2 entries per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

No need to sign up. At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

Very interesting, Drea! So, does that mean the first LO must be entered by the 15th? Can there only be one twist per LO?

Of course you can join!

Lisa you have until the last day of the month to enter, whether you're doing the first twist or the 2nd one. If you do the first one, you get one extra vote, and if you wait to do the 2nd twist you'll get an extra 2 votes. But if you want to wait to see the 2nd twist, you can also combine it with the first twist and still get an extra 3 votes. I hope that made sense!

So does that mean that if we do the 1st twist, we'll have to re-post that same page with the 2nd twist or do we do a different page with both twist...a little confused here

This is the way I understand it, and I'm wanting to make sure I have it right myself.

1) create one LO with 1st twist only - 1 extra vote

2) create another LO with second twist after the 15th - 2 extra votes

3) create one LO after the 15th with both twists - 3 extra votes

Not really confusing, just easier to follow if broken down into numbered steps/options!! It's the teacher in me.
Thanks for confirming.
