Hi everyone! Welcome to another month of the Four Categories Challenge! This challenge is about using our 'stuff' and, maybe, trying something new.

The goal is to complete up to four different LO's, each one fulfilling a different category - a product, a color, a technique, and a theme. You may enter one LO for each category, but you may not use the same LO to fulfill more than one of these categories. You do not have to do all four. You may, of course, stack other challenges with any of the LO's you enter here. Only LO's created and uploaded between June 1 and midnight PST June 30, 2013 will qualify.

At the end of the month, I will ask you to vote for your top 3 favorites from each category. You will receive a vote for each of your LO's just for voting, and any twists that are completed will get an extra vote. Those who complete all four LO's will receive an additional vote for each of their LO's. I will create a poll with the top vote-getters from each category so we can choose an overall winner to whom I will send a small RAK. In addition, I will send a little something to an eligible challenge participant chosen by Random.org. To be eligible for this second RAK, a player must enter at least one LO in the challenge, check into the thread at least a few times during the month, AND send in votes before I set up the poll.

Please, read the specs for each challenge carefully! If you have a question, ask!

Category One ~ Product: Cardstock
With a rainbow of color choices and a multitude of texture and core choices, it shouldn't be hard to use some cardstock on a LO this month. Use at least 3 different cardstocks to qualify for this challenge.
Twist: Create your LO with NO patterned paper.

Category Two ~ Color: Red
Red is one of the most striking colors in the spectrum. Create a LO that says RED to you – it can be all red, or just a splash of red among neutral colors (black, white, kraft, gray, etc.). You may include other, non-neutral, colors, but the red should be prominent enough to draw the eye.
Twist: Use some fibers, fabric trims, or ribbons on your page.

Category Three ~ Technique: Tearing
Tearing is an easy distressing technique. Create a LO that includes some torn paper – this may include tearing into the edge of your background paper or torn paper within the LO.
Twist: Use at least 2 different inks on your LO.

Category Four ~ Theme: Summer
Summer officially starts in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21st, but it unofficially starts as soon as school lets out for the year. In my house, that means ALL of June is blissful summer. Create a LO that celebrates summer – a summer activity, a summer scene – any photos taken in the summer will do.
Twist: Include a sun somewhere on your LO.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The fine print:
1. Any size LO 8x8 or larger is allowed, including 2-pagers. Please post your 2-page LO's with one photo of both pages together. I will allow digi, but please realize some of the challenges will not apply to digi (especially in the technique category). If you can convince me that your digi LO fulfills the challenge, I will allow it. Keep in mind that the RAK will be for paper scrapping.

2. Please allow public embedding on your pages. Also, please specify the category in which you are entering your LO in your post and in your description. If applicable, please explain how your LO fits the challenge, and if you did the twist and where/how. Don't make me hunt for it. If I can't see it, and you didn't tell me about it, you won't get credit for it.

3. If you get love, leave love. I will not be a psycho about this, just do the best you can. However, if I notice that someone habitually neglects commenting on the other players' entry LO's, that person will be disqualified from winning the RAK. No one is going to be excluded from the voting or poll and the chance to win the challenge. I'm just reserving the right to NOT spend my own time and money on buying and shipping a RAK to a person who doesn't participate. It's only if I never or only rarely see the winner's posts on other LO's in the gallery or the winner is someone who doesn't check in here in the forum a few times a month that I will check into it further and decide for myself if I want to make the effort to send something out. Please, don't stress about it!

4. Please, only share LO's that fit one or more of the categories. Commenting on shared LO's is up to each individual player.
