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 2/29 and you will be entered.

You then mail two UGLY 12x12 pieces of paper and one ugly embellishment BY 3/5 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to the address given to you by me. Make your layout then post here BY 2/29.

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 3/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 3/31 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'..........

I don't want that thing so I better NOT get it. (hmmmm I could make sure I don't give you may name)

Actually I won't know who gets what name until Thursday morning. It is done in a special way and is completely Random!!!

I promise to update the front with everyone's name tomorrow. Today got away from me being so nice I spent most of the day outside with the horses.

I had a super bad weekend. I lost the trust of a good friend and I'm very upset over it. I do not like being flat out lied to. White lies are one thing but flat out lying is not.

Hmmmm, Sandra sounds too eager on that stamp... *Note to self...* LOL!
I do promise I won't send this beauty to a newbie - the idea is to get them to come back, not scare the heebee geebees out of them! hehehehe

That's what we debated back in September, Tayrah! Who would have even thought to make that stamp in the first place?!

Jalynne - I think it'd be funny to send that stamp to you then! To use the stamp for what it was actually for would be a first!

Carol - Hoping you get that call-back!!

Carol, don't give up. I've been w/o a job for almost 3 years. I came close a few times but then never got the second call back. My credit sucks anymore and now the majority of the jobs are requesting credit checks which I think is bs. Then my back went out on me last year and I have been in a lot of pain ever since. I have good days and bad days. Please stick with us one more month. Do you live in a rural area? Have you tried calling your post office? Perhaps they have the package there waiting and it got put aside. I've heard that happen in a few other swaps I've been in. I know it can be discouraging when your papers don't get used. It's happened to me a couple times already. And, my bestest uglies went to Rayette and that's when life got in her way of this challenge. I was feeling guilty because I had them all picked out, then I got her name and she said they were some of the worse ones. I know she'll eventually get to them.

Sonja, what do you mean butter you up?? Me?? Darnit, I was hoping you'd miss that. Don't let Sonja fool you, Sandra, she's not being nice to the newbie, she just wants to make sure everyone else gets stuck with it, knowing that the veterans will glady pass it on! But, at least Jalynne actually wants the stamp!

Was there a full moon recently? I had a friend betray my friendship with his lies last week. At least he wasn't a 'very good' friend. I can imagine how hurt you felt.

Yes I did check with the neighbors and stuff too as we seem to always have lots of postmen for our area -- no signs yet....
Thanks Sally.

I'm thinking that if my Feb uglies do arrive -can I use them for March but not be part of the mailing list? It sounded like they are coming from CAnada and this way I wouldn't end up with two uglies arriving in March?

Carol

Go ahead and sign up for March. I've had two sets show up in one month before. If that happens then you can use one for March and one for April.

I've also had packages (in other swaps before I started scrapbooking) both sent by me and to me just never show up.

I had one show up 6 months later all ripped to pieces too.

The mail is not 100% reliable.

The STAMP!
Like Jaylynne I have a great story that I could use with that so BRING IT ON!!1

Welcome Sandy.
Carol (snowdog) sounds like you need a good dose of Ugly Paper love... I would be happy (in a sincere not trash talk way) to send you some. PM your addy and you will be all set. It really takes the fun out of it when you are stuck like this.
Danel and all...should we start thinking about 'angeling' if a person's papers don't show up by the middle of the month?
It used to be that Rayette was pretty strict about getting papers out by the 5th which also helps.
Another thought I have had is that the tubes are the ones that always seem to get delayed..Maybe the odd shape? I also have found that the tubes cost more to mail. Just a thought....

I know when I mailed out my tube, my swap pal didn't get it, so after a week or two, I sent her another set of papers and she got both of them the said day.

I have a job interview Friday!!! First one in 6 months. A job hunter called looking for my ex roommate. I told him he moved out almost 4 years ago and that he's now bedridden and paralyzed from a massive stroke. But noticed the call came from an insurance company and so I asked him what type of job he was going to offer him. I have a background in insurance!! It's selling life insurance to union members who retire or leave the union. No cold calling! They get their leads from the unions. And the company is 15 minutes down the road from me!!! Can you tell I'm excited? I haven't worked since 6/28/09

Hi ladies,

I would like to join in for March if it is not too late. I am flabbergasted to hear the stories about the uglies not ever being delivered. Sounds more like stories I hear about other countries where their mail service is abominable. Plus, I used to work for the postal service once upon a time.

Sorry DaNel - it's awful when things like that happen. Unless I get a call on a job tomorrow, I'll probably sit this one out. Out of 3 temp agencies and 7 offices you think someone would have a job....I'll post my final decision tomorrow.



Carol- you would think SOMEONE would have a job for you. Keeping you in my prayers.

confession time here....i'm not afraid of getting that stamp. After having just had the worst yeast infection of my life recently (a result of the massive stress after my husband's accident in September), I was considering scrapping even that part of my experience. how sad is that? LOL




It would go in your BOM and you would journal about the stress- get it out. I remember when you first told me of the accident- I was in total shock & it took a bit to hit me how close you came to losing him. You have been thru a lot girl & you are a strong woman- stronger yet for it. So it's not a sad thing that you want to scrap about it.

I know when I mailed out my tube, my swap pal didn't get it, so after a week or two, I sent her another set of papers and she got both of them the said day.

I have a job interview Friday!!! First one in 6 months. A job hunter called looking for my ex roommate. I told him he moved out almost 4 years ago and that he's now bedridden and paralyzed from a massive stroke. But noticed the call came from an insurance company and so I asked him what type of job he was going to offer him. I have a background in insurance!! It's selling life insurance to union members who retire or leave the union. No cold calling! They get their leads from the unions. And the company is 15 minutes down the road from me!!! Can you tell I'm excited? I haven't worked since 6/28/09



Sally that is GREAT news. I will be thinking happy thoughts & praying for positive results.

Thanks Char and everyone else.

Both JaLynne and Mermaid have been through a lot. I hope both of your hubbies realize how strong you were for them. That was too freaky that their accidents happened so close to together (time wise) and weren't both hit&run? That alone had to suck. Did either of them get caught?

Got my uglies' pal's name... heh heh heh... (in my most eviliest and lowest of chuckles)

Anne Marie, check the top of page 3 for the infamous stamp photo - Sally gave my evil secret away! (And relax, you are safe!)

Sally GOOD LUCK on your interview!!

Awful lot of brave scrappers out there, but I now have my victum err... buddy! Hint: she wanted the stamp... My package o' goodies will go postal tomorrow!

Mary - Debby had to take a few months off, but I agree, I miss her trash-talking! (Okay, I was really hoping SHE would get the dreaded stamp, but c'est la vie, no?!)

OK ladies, Im going off topic for a minute.

I am on a search for a piece of paper! I am creating wedding invitations and just cant seem to find the right paper. The colors are a deep purple, lavender and silver.

Im looking for either lavender paper with some kind of flourishes, or wispy design, or maybe a silver paper with the same kind of affect. or even a paper that has lavender and silver on it. floral is good to as long as it stays within the purple and silver family.

any suggestions?????? I have been searching for weeks! lol

thanks for your help in advance!!

If you can't find what you're looking for as far as the pattern goes, try making your own template and misting or stamping your card stock. Maybe go online and look for a print that you can download and print out on white paper. The cost of ink might be cheaper than all the paper depending on how many invitations/rsvps you're making.

Hi everyone got my lucky buddy and will be sending out my goodies tomorrow morning--they are not going to far at all just the next state over

The last couple of days have been busy-DH had part 1 of his wrist surgery yesturday and we are finally home today. He is recovering very well and has an awesome attitude.

Yes its scary how close the 2 accidents were in time-my DH was self inflicted accident when he crashed into a curb, shattering it, on his motorcycle.

Mine have been sent. I have 4 packages waiting to go out. 2 with addresses and 2 waiting for addresses.

I will be putting up a poll tomorrow so if you have not voted yet please do for February. So far the Who sent the ugliest papers may be won by a long shot. It is not quite double the next one but almost everyone that has voted has voted for it as at least one of their choices.

The finished layouts are all very close.

Oh I haven't thought of that yet! I will try that next. So far I tried stamping and perfect pearls, but I have 250 invites to make, and I don't know if I have the patience for stamping that much. Misting however might be a great solution!

Thanks!

Hoping to mail out tomorrow but right now it is sleet/snowing and the weather is supposed to get worse..
fingers crossed that I can get out in the morining so that someone in a much nicer climate will get their uglies soon.

I'll get the poll up tomorrow. I had planned on it today but my husband needed to go shoe shopping. (He has size 15 feet) and it took longer than expected.

I then had to feed horses, go sell Girl Scout cookies and now dinner.

Glad to know I haven't missed the poll!! Missed the voting cuz i was somewhere for a few days where there was no internet access, but in many ways, glad to be home! Missed you guys, and my papers will be out the door on Monday, going to the opposite coast, but south this time.
