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*
For an extra vote at the end of the month stitch a square or diamond grid.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 5/1/13, and you have until 5/31 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)1 entry 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.

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.

I'm not sure if I want to continue with this new format for challenges. Now I can't upload any LO's here to show you my examples. I'm also not sure how we're going to work out the twist. What do you guys think?

So if you use the new format for challenges, you can't upload ANY los to the thread?? hmmm. I Guess you could just reference the link in this thread to the sample in your gallery. Just thinking out loud.

I guess I could do that, but still hate not being able to post here.I already tried to delete this challenge so I can go back to the old way, but it won't let me. I'm waiting to hear back from tech support.

Wait, what do you mean you can't put your LO's here? Is it just the first post that you can't edit? Besides not being able to mark which LO's have the twist, there are no numbers in the gallery for voting at the end of the month either. I am really curious to see if this new thing takes or not after this month. I know I'm not going to use it for my challenges. I think it's great for manufacturer or sb.com sponsored challenges that have a random draw, but I don't think it's good at all for member challenges. That said, I'm here to be a guinea pig with you this month, Drea. I'm in.

Yeah I can't post here at all. I'm SO not liking this!! I think there will be a lot more drop offs and less loving left because there's no way to keep track of entries.

This will be interesting to see how all the new stuff pans out. You poor hostess have to figure it out for all the rest of us!

I thought I had left a comment here. I did join on the first page. Please, count me in, again.

I also noticed that the challenge is gone on the day the challenge is over. Sometimes, I still need to comment after the end of the month. I guess I can go under the Forums tab for that. I like that you can instantly link, but that's about all. I miss seeing the lo's in the thread.

As long as it's letting me, I'm going to still post all of the entries to the front, so I can keep track of the twist. Just make sure to let me know if you've done the twist.

You are kidding. OMG - this new 'feature' is less than useless. And, pardon my bi+chiness, but if the hostesses are still going to link to the front, what is the point of even looking at that gallery? I would rather see the LO's in the thread too.

Kelly - I looked to see what you were mentioning, and there is a link at the top for 'Closed Challenges' so I think you can still see the entries if you go into there.
