Hi, glad you found us! For anyone new to this challenge, here's the idea. So many of us love doing challenges and especially all the lovin' our neighbors leave when we do, but sometimes we just want to create layouts that are our very own. 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 your neighbors' layouts. 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 35 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.

And at the end of the month, all participants who stick it out for the whole month will have their names in a drawing for a small RAK!

Every weekend, I'll post a new challenge. It'll be something really easy.

Challenge #5: Use ribbon or fiber!

Easy enough, right? Again, you can still post layouts and projects that don't follow the challenge. Just let your creativity flow and have fun!

Past Challenges:
Stickers
Use metal
No patterned paper
Use borders
Paper tearing
Use green
Use some curves
Stitching

Checking in,3 pages in 3 hours girls! The party was a huge success and I got lots of pics to scrap. Now to get the time to do it!

For those of you from last month who had to suffer through looking at all my altered items(LOL!),I wanted to tell you I found out I won the March altering challenge! I was shocked,I didn't know if there was really going to be a prize or not. I just like to alter stuff!

I hope my camera is able to be fixed too! I have only had this camera for 1.5 years!!! For some reason the USB cord stopped working and so I started unloading pictures and pictures of my lo's via the memory card. Now when I do it that way sometimes the picture I took will show up and sometimes it will not. I have downloaded new drivers and still nothin'!

Any hints camera buffs???

I did this one for the pronoun challenge...so very hard to use only pronouns so I had to use one other word (couldn't tell you what part of speech it is though...even though I have an English minor!)

I panicked when I read borders! But alas, I rose to the occasion and turned that puppy out.

for anyone that needs it:

Linking instructions:
1. Go to Gallery
2. Under your layout there is a box that says "link/embed". Click on that and another box opens
3. Under "Embed this Image" click the circle for IMG code.
4. Right below that you will the address. Click on it and a message will pop up saying "copied to clipboard"
5. Go to the challenge and in your reply use the right button on your mouse to "paste" it. Then it will show up.

Full already! I'm so glad I came home this afternoon to get signed up.

This is one I did for the color challenge. This is the first time I have scrapped any of my wedding photos. I would never have dreamed of using these colors, but I'm so happy with them, I may do the rest in a similar scheme!

Here are the first group of ATCs that I made for the Memories to Last COF group. We are putting our names and addresses on the backs and sharing them with each other. Karen (Fablady) came up with this great idea to make these and put them on a key ring so that we would have the information handy and beautifully displayed.

Audra: This is the Laid-Back challenge, so just about anything that takes the shape or form of a border will do... of course, Kathy is our scrapping patrolwoman

our other girls

i suppose the ric rac is a border, but in all honesty, i finished this before i read the challenge. =) these are my good friend's girls and if a week goes by that my daughter doesn't see them (the older one, especially, those two are like sisters), you'd think her world was ending! =)
