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 MOTIVATIONAL ROUND --- no points no prizes

At the selected time of the day Saturday 8 AM 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 ???? I'm still looking for this topic and wiki list

We will do a second round Saturday at noon and speed round at 5 PM east. MAYBE a Sunday evening round --- stay tuned


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


THE RULES:
*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.
****When the challenge weekend has been closed I will PM all participants and each person that completes a page will select their favorite project. Voting earns you more points
*****Don’t vote for yourself as you will points for PMing a vote..
******You can start the challenge at anytime within the the week.
this is a motivational round....we throw points, voting and rules out the window
*******You MUST follow each direction step-by-step one at a time, NO sneak peeks.

Good Morning! Dh made me get out of bed at 6 and had a cup of coffee waiting for me. I'm heading to the scraproom at 6:30 and hoping it's not FREEZING down there. The outside temp is 30 degrees right now and it feels chilly here on the main level of the house....dh likes to turn down the thermostat, so I have no idea what the temp is.

That would definitely be worse! Personally, I like to sleep in a room that's a little cold so that I can cuddle under a pile of blankets, however I worry that the kids...well, now it's just Noela...will get cold and not sleep well.

The really annoying thing is that dh wants to set the temp high in the summer and low in the winter...I prefer a fairly constant temp.

Lori that is heck of an AM routine. This is what my gf has posted as her employer: Owner-Operator at 24/7 Breastaurant

Jenny I love it like too. Give me a blanket to snuggle under ALWAYS. I had to put on my fuzzy pj's cause it's a little chilly here to. Although I'm sure I define chilly much differently than you Jenny. It'll be a beauty of a day though. Occasional winds but dry, dry, dry since that hurricane is sucking all the moisture to the other coast. the best thing I can do is scarp all day!!!

Anyone else here and as ready as us three?? Has everyone opened the link to the pumpkin question or at least answered the questions. And what about the pinterest links. Have you all got those windows open to so you can select one of them instead of one around here.

Give me a few minutes to locate the template. I hope I put the last one on my jump drive.

Okay, I'm going to try the sketch here..although there was another color combo that I really liked, so not sure if I'll try adding those colors to this sketch.

My computer does not like that site this morning..it was more than slow about bringing up the images.

Why is it that when I'm doing Progressives is the time that the hubby decides to be very chatty and wanting spend time with me?! Last night he sat down on the couch with his computer for about 6 hours and barely said anything to me or listened to anything I tried to talk to him about, this morning, though, he can't stay out of my scraproom and wants to chat about EVERYTHING!!

I'm still working on my background.
