Welcome to the VLB (VERY LAID BACK CHALLENGE) -- September 2013 Edition.

Please read this entire post before you sign up.

For anyone new to this challenge, here's the idea: So many of us crave all the lovin' our neighbors leave when we do challenges, but sometimes we just want to create layouts and projects that have nothing to do with challenges (and still get some love!). Well, for this challenge, you can just create pages and other projects and link them here. You can follow my weekly challenges, but it's not a requirement. Basically, anything goes!

Here's the one and only catch: YOU HAVE TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS' LAYOUTS AND PROJECTS. So, if you sign up, you are committing yourself to leaving comments as well as receiving them. To keep this from becoming an overwhelming task, I'm restricting the number of players to 30 or so. This is not a one entry challenge. This is a month long commitment to post ALL your work and check out everyone else's. Please post projects only from this month. And please be aware that we can be REALLY CHATTY on this thread and the posts can add up really fast.

Also -- I'd love to learn everyone's first name --if it's not in your siggy could you please tell us!

Every weekend I will try my best to post a new challenge! These are completely optional -- do them this month, in the future or not at all.

Challenges:

Week 1 -- Labor Intensive
A couple of weeks ago, you were challenged to ‘git er done’ in 60 minutes or less. That probably means you kept things pretty simple in terms of embellishment and technique. This week, you are not timed, but challenged to take your time, and go ‘all out’! (“All Out” is completely up to your interpretation.)

Week 2: A is for Apple
It’s almost apple-picking season here in Illinois - yay! And kids are back in school. So it’s a great time for apples, and that’s our theme for this week. You can interpret apple as a fruit, a color, a brand of computer, The Big Apple…take your pick! (Ha!)

Week 3: Round and Round
Your challenge this week (or whenever you choose to do it!) is to incorporate 3 or more different types of circles onto your page. By that I mean drawn circles, punched circles, round buttons, etc., but it should be a mix of circles. Hope that makes sense.

Week 4: Orange You Glad?
Create a page that's "mostly orange". Doesn't have to be monochrome, but your page should definitely "say" orange.

Welcome back! BoBecca, wow, how ARE you?

I'll get names up tomorrow.

Just got home from As. I got three two pagers and two single pages done, so I have a mini bomb to drop this weekend, too.
