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 and explain why you want to do it over. Then ... do it over and post the beautiful results!

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 the first of the month and are DUE no later than midnight SB.com time the last day of the month .

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.

BoBecca - got a name we can use?

Your albums aren't awful. They represent a HUGE amount of love, devotion, and desire to archive memories that are precious to you.

In any activity, you improve with practice. Your skills develop and grows. So when you look back at how far you have come, of course you wish you had done things differently, but the thing to focus on is that you actually DID something with thos precious photographs. Most people leave them in a photo album and never make the effort to create something more special.

You MIGHT could take your cropped down images and photos into, say, Walmart, and scan them to create new images that you could have printed off bigger. That might help with the "I've cropped them down and now they're too small..." or "I don't have another photo to work with."

But yes, I get it. When I look back at some of MY first projects, I think how far I've come and how much better they would look if I were doing them now instead of then. But I also remember how much fun I had DOING them back when I didn't know what I was doing!

And the memories are still VERY precious to me, regardless of what the pages look like!

I've been trying to decide if this set of lo's would work for this challenge or not. Last night I decided that I would post them and you can say if they work or not, OK??
