Welcome to the Ugly Paper Challenge...

The object of this challenge is to make your mind work, thinking Outside the Box and using up papers in your stash you thought you would never use.

**PLEASE if you don't think you will finish, please do not join this month. It will take everyone doing their part.**

To sign up, Please PM me your name, screenname and mailing address BY 10/31 and you will be entered.

You then mail two UGLY 12x12 pieces of paper and one ugly embellishment BY 11/5 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to the address given to you by me. Make your layout then post here BY 11/30.

I will then post a poll. If ten entries or less everyone will go in the poll, if more then ten entries you will pm me the top 5(don't vote for yourself, you get a vote for pming me.) You will also get 2 extra votes towards the poll if you use the embellishment sent to you. The winner will recieve a RAK from me.

Rules:
- Must use all or part of the two 12x12 papers supplied to you.
- Must be able to see both pieces on the layout.
- Must allow public embedding.
- No digital layouts due to the papers being used.
- Must send out your papers by 11/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 11/30 at midnight to qualify for the votes.
- One layout per person please.
- Must take a before picture of the papers and post on the thread.

NEW RULES:
You MUST check in at least once a week. (If you are on vacation just let me know ahead of time)
If you do not check in, your layout will not be allowed in the poll.

Also if you have not signed up by the 31st of the month you must WAIT until the following month. NO exceptions! (it is too hard to change everything after addresses have went out)

If you do not check in and/or post your layout you will NOT be allowed in the following month. (unless of course you have had a emergency or let us know you will be out of town)

From now on if you are participating in the current month you must have a completed layout before signing up for this month. If you are a brand new player please go ahead and sign up now.

Easiest way to mail these is to put them between cardboard and tape the edges or you could put them in a tube and mail them that way.

Any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I hope I made this clear enough.
.........Now let's get scrappin'..........

Note on embedding:

1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab under the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

I'm a newbie & I would like to participate in this challenge.
Do I upload my LO by 10/31 or should that have been 11/30? If 10/31 is the cut-off for uploading a LO I cannot participate. My parents are here from Alaska & I won't be scrapping until after they leave on the 30th.
I have plent of "paper packs" and inevitably they all have papers that I look at and know I'll never use.

Must have been a typo on the 10/31. I'll fix that later.

To participate I need you to pm me your name and address.

On the 1st (Next Thursday). I will send everyone that has signed up a name and address. Then you have until November 5th to mail out two 12 x 12 UGLY pieces of paper and an embellishment to the person who's name you have gotten.

When you get your papers in the mail take a photo of them before you do anything with them. Post the photo here so we can see the UGLY you have to work with. Then you will have until November 30th to create a masterpiece with those UGLY papers. Take a photo of the finished ART and post it here. We then vote on the worst papers and the best layout.

Yes, I meant to say something too. It is a great photo.

I'm going to have to pass for November. I don't know what kind of mind set I'm going to be in. My daughter, who just turned 16 on Thurs, ran away Friday at 5pm and hasn't come home yet. There's a police report out, so now's she considered a missing person. I'm sitting here all alone in silence and every emotion is hitting me. And there is one woman that can help and she is refusing to give out any information.

I'll still follow along and see what everyone gets.

Thanks, Sally. And I'm so very sorry about your daughter's troubles. Having been there done that, I know the emotional nightmare you're going through. Have the Police contacted the woman? If she is the one you mentioned earlier, I hope your daughter IS there no matter what the reasons. At least you'll know she's safe. Prayers and hugs your way, girl! Stay strong. Will miss you here in November.

Thanks Carol and Mary (and Missa for the pm). My daughter turned herself in and is home safe now. I took her to school and we talked to her principal and then I picked her up after school and we spent a quiet evening together and went to the store to buy some staples and prepare for the storm in case we're without power for a few days and then watched some movies together tonight. They said they'll probably call off school due to the high winds we've been having all night and predicting we'll be having by tomorrow. Right now they're estimated at gusts of 60mph and tomorrow morning 70mph. They've been non stop since 7pm. We've had non stop rain since Saturday. My chimney is leaking. As my sister likes to say, "welcome to my world"

DaNel, I'll play along this month. This is my only scrapbook challenge I do monthly anymore, so, sign me up. I rarely get a lo done. But after Rhonda's lovely guitars, I'm afraid the next person won't be so nice!

Thanks everyone for signing up after I sent you a pm. I really like this challenge but it looked like only 10 people were going to play this month and I really wanted a bunch more. I'll update the front after I give riding lessons.

Sally, I'm glad your playing again and that you and your daughter are working through her issues.

I understand the money thing and I was wanting to see if we could work out something different for the RAK's. Most of the time I buy things between $1 and $3. But I find so many things that I want for myself that I spend way more than I should when I go to the store.

I have prizes for October's month already so that is not an issue. (Remember I have to do postage for them all too)

Any suggestions?

Or pick out multiple uglies and let each other choose which two to use ... that way it's still sort of a surprise. More computer work, but it wouldn't cost postage.

DaNel as far as RAKs go I don't think we really need a prize, the uglies are prize enough.

I found that the cheapest way to send is sandwiched between cardboard. It's about a dollar cheaper than the tubes. I've never paid more than two bucks to get the uglies across the country.

I'm with Missa, I don't need a RAK, but if we do a RAK, I had suggested before, that we could all send something in to you.. it doesn't have to be NIP, but for my swaps, I don't always send out RAK's but when I do, I put together little baggies with matching things from my stash. A couple of brads, a couple of buttons, a piece of 12-24" ribbons,8-10 gem stones, a few other do-dads, things I've gotten from others in swaps, that I'll never use, but I know they will. I'll put together a color baggy, or a themed baggy. I like to buy things on clearance, especially at 75 or 90% after the holiday. Then the following year, it makes for a very nice goody bag.

I don't want extra ugly papers, lol.. I pull mine out to give away!

I'm with Crystal. How about we pick four pieces of paper, four embellies and DaNel picks the lady's name who would've received our name to originally mail to, and she picks the papers and embellie we use. Hope that makes some kind of sense and not as thick as mud!!

DaNel, funny you should bring up RAKs because I was thinking about that last week and how it is a lot from you.

I am with Missa & Sally - who needs 'em? I have enough of my own stuff.

And as Missa said I usually mail the uglies in a cardboard sandwich although I have also recycled tubes that other uglies came in.

I like the concept that Crystal and Sandra propose but honestly I am not sure it would work that well but I am game to try anything that will work.

Or maybe we could do something like this.

I would tell my 'partner' what to choose.
It could go something like this: "pick one pp with predominantly brown colors and a large print; pick one pp that is a Holiday print in pastel shades. Choose a ribbon that is neon colored."

Then the 'partner' would post what they have picked and I would have final approval.
Of course this could take some negotiating but I think it could work.

Sally - so glad to read that your dd came back. I hope things are going better for you.

How did you make out with Sandy? We got rain and wind but not much damage thank heavens. With a tornado, a hurricane, and the October snowstorm (exactly one year before Sandy) last year I don't think we needed it.

I agree, I play here for the sick challenge of the whole thing! No RAK needed!

As for the uglies, if we decide to stop mailing, I sort of like the idea of picking our own and posting a pic, maybe for group approval? Somehow, I think we would be a lot more outrageous to ourselves than to a "pal."

Whatever we decide is fine with me. Let me know if I can help in any way.

I want to keep mailing uglies because that is the excitement of this challenge. I was just wondering about RAK's. Because honestly that is extra purchase and mailing on my part. Even if I buy super cheap it is still extra for me.

If you want or need to play for a RAK please PM me and if you win you will get one. If you just want to play for the challenge there is no need to PM me you are playing for the challenge.


I'm about to start sending out names.

I am hoping that Carol and Crystal have packages that are not heading to Arizona.

My package is heading out today and it's not traveling too far. I think it will find it's new home by Monday.

I totally want to keep sending pps, it's just so much fun dreading the mail!

Since I just happen to be having "one of those days" I didn't remember to take my package with me when I left the house today, so it will be going out tomorrow, to the east of me ... and don't worry Missa, it's going east of you too, so you're safe ... this month!!!

Actually, it will end up Southeast of me ... hmmmm where oh where will my beauties end up?!?!?

Actually, it will end up Southeast of me ... hmmmm where oh where will my beauties end up?!?!?



Where in Cali do you live Crystal? I was born & raised in Salinas (Prunedale actually).

Sally - so glad to read that your dd came back. I hope things are going better for you.

How did you make out with Sandy? We got rain and wind but not much damage thank heavens. With a tornado, a hurricane, and the October snowstorm (exactly one year before Sandy) last year I don't think we needed it.





We got a lot of wind and rain, and then some more rain, and then more rain. it finally stopped raining yesterday evening. We had rain for over 7 or 8 days in a row almost non-stop. We got over 6" total. We lucked that our power didn't go out. Pretty ironic as every other storm, my street is the first to go out. There are still some areas that are still w/o power. The one street I take off the highway to the get to the VAMC, has so many uprooted trees. Since the sun finally came out on my way home last night, I'm hoping it's out later this morning. I want to go take pictures. I have a layout in mind since I didn't get any fall pictures this year.

The past two days I've spent in the hospital with my daughter. She asked to be admitted for depression and suicidal ideation...she will there at least until next Friday. So, I'll be around, just not very active..as I'll be doing a lot of traveling back and forth. Visitation is limited to twice a day and the facility is a 50 min drive.

Sally I'm thinking of you. Although terrible that your daughter is going through these issues, it's great that she is asking for help. I hope she is in a good facility.

I picked out my uglies, but I think my 'victim' is getting off pretty easy...either that or I really should be scrapping instead of trying to do Algebra homework! I would pull out a paper I've always thought was ugly, but today it would look like it has all kinds of potential. Finally, I just grabbed two that I've never liked and found an embelly that I thought was pretty when I bought it and now I'm wondering where my brain was!

Got my addy and they are going coastal, but which coast? HARHARHAR

SALLY - I'm very proud of your daughter for asking for help, it takes a lot to ask for help especially at her age, more power to her, and may she find peace within herself and become an even stronger young lady than what she already is.

I'm not sure I count as being coastal ... I mean it does take 2 - 2 1/2 hours minimum to get to the beach ... so in California terms, I'm not coastal

Let's see ... my hint for the day ......

The beautiful papers & embellie I have painfully parted with and shared with another are going to a city named after another ... something/someone/somepla ce.

That space between the a & c ^ aren't there before I submit ... weird

Hah! I didn't even know there were raks, so I'm voting for no rak! Fun should be fun and not stressful!

My pp's aren't going to go out until Monday. I didn't realize just HOW bad the new hours are at the PO. It's right next to dd's school and I take her at 8 and pick her up at 3:30. I thought the PO's hours were until 3pm, so yesterday I was going to leave early to pick her up and stop at the PO...nope the hours are 10am - 2pm. I'm going to be going on post Monday, so I'll probably just mail them from the PO there.

That is because you are special. lol.

No really Because you are using last months papers it always works out that I have an odd amount of names and one person will not send because one person already has papers. If you NEED to mail out papers I can give you the name of the person I am mailing to since I'm mailing out Prizes this month. Just PM me if you want to.

What sorts of trouble are you all getting in now that I haven't come and checked on you lately?

My gorgeous papers and the lovely accompanying embellishment went postal yesterday.

They are going to a state that isn't a swing state however one of it's senators caused a bit of a chuffle earlier this year.

Honestly I hate the desert. My folks thought it was great to go to Death Valley for Thanksgiving 3 years in a row. When I was old enough as a teen- I told them if they wanted to go the next year, I was staying HOME!
