A Progressive Challenge is done quickly and in steps.........it's like scrapbooking meets Simon Says with a touch of choose your group's adventure. Or it could be described as going to a virtual crop since we chat and scrap at the same time. Here's why a virtual crop can be great:
~*~ there's no pressure to buy more scrap supplies (like you need more)
~**~ it's from the comfort of your own home (including the scream/fighting kids, hubby that needs your help finding something you miss placed, crying baby, and bothersome calls from the MIL)
~***~ your supplies don't have to be packed and unpacked (because they're right where you left them--or at least that's where you thought you left it)
THIS IS A MEGA PROGRESSIVE THAT WILL LAST FOR 3 FULL WEEKENDS. THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE RAKS.ONE WAY TO WIN IS TO COLLECT THE MOST POINTS, WIN A RANDOM PICK, OR ONE NEWBIE IS GUARANTEED A PRIZE
At the selected time of the day 12 PM EST , I will give directions for you to follow approximately every 15 minutes until the challenge/layout is complete. I will not even know the how the layout will turn out because you all will help make decisions as I narrate a story. It’s like a choose your own adventure scrapbook challenge.
This weekend our progressive will be related to NBA championships. The link to the list to find the answers to the questions can be found here
There will be an evening round on Saturday and a round on Sunday with an unknown time - sorry I gotta take son back to his dad. We will do rounds next weekend, as well. Plus with this being a bonus mega round you'll have one week to complete the layout. Feel free to try out previous rounds before they close.

You will need common scrap supplies and 1 or 2 or 3 pictures to be decided at the time of the challenge. The first step can be using a sketch or scraplifting, so you can get a head start on finding what you'll want to use.
You must follow the steps and you should not peek ahead if you are doing the page after the fact. You must do what the step says, but you can do more if you would like. For example if the step calls for adding embellishments and you’re told to add two you could add three.
You can play with me at that time I give the directions or you can follow later following the order when you get a free moment to play. For this mega large progressive you have one week to finish any project.
Some sneak peeks:
*Step one: find a sketch or a LO to scraplift or freestyle
**Step two: paper selection and placement
***Step three: adding pictures
****Step four: adding handmade embellishments adding including newest goodies
*****Step five: adding "more" to the page
******Step six: adding the title
*******Step seven: journaling/doodling time
*Your lo has to be new as of the day the challenge, hence a progressive challenge.
**Upload your lo here within one week of the last direction.
***Single or double page LO's are fine. Any size is allowed too! Paper only as the directions are for that type.
This month (JUNE) is for points! Every layout you complete (one per round) earns you points. Extra points for finishing 1st, 2nd,or 3rd and winning a poll or vote plus encouraging a friend to play along
