Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist*You'll get an extra vote at the end of the month for stitching on your photo or photos. I'll also be announcing a 2nd twist on the 15th that will be worth double the points. That means you can have 2 entries this month.

2nd Twist*Post and play here and at the http://papermixingbowl.blogspot.com/

1) create one LO with 1st twist only - 1 extra vote

2) create another LO with second twist after the 15th - 2 extra votes

3) create one LO after the 15th with both twists - 3 extra votes

If you do both twists, either in two LOs or both in one LO, you get the three extra votes.



Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 1/1/13, and you have until 1/31 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)2 entries per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

No need to sign up. At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

Very interesting, Drea! So, does that mean the first LO must be entered by the 15th? Can there only be one twist per LO?

Of course you can join!

Lisa you have until the last day of the month to enter, whether you're doing the first twist or the 2nd one. If you do the first one, you get one extra vote, and if you wait to do the 2nd twist you'll get an extra 2 votes. But if you want to wait to see the 2nd twist, you can also combine it with the first twist and still get an extra 3 votes. I hope that made sense!

So does that mean that if we do the 1st twist, we'll have to re-post that same page with the 2nd twist or do we do a different page with both twist...a little confused here

This is the way I understand it, and I'm wanting to make sure I have it right myself.

1) create one LO with 1st twist only - 1 extra vote

2) create another LO with second twist after the 15th - 2 extra votes

3) create one LO after the 15th with both twists - 3 extra votes

If you do both twists, either in two LOs or both in one LO, you get the three extra votes.

LOL - sorry to open that can of worms

I'm working on one now (hopefully - we'll see if the sewing part actually works for this LO), so this next question doesn't really matter since I plan to turn one in the first half of the month, but if you do two entries, do they have to be one before the 15th and one after the 15th, or can you turn in 2 LO's late in the month? Can both LO's have both twists? Don't smack me, Drea. LOL

how funny - okay- I'm going to throw one more thing at you Drea- under the rules you have "1 entry per person" so with the new twist- should that be 2 entries per person now?

Thanks! Now this was really a CHALLENGE for me! This was my first time sewing/stitching something since I tried to sew a shirt in my 8th grade Home Ec class. Total disaster and I got a "D" for it! I swore off needles and thread after that! Hoping to carve out some time to get a layout done for this challenge this month. Saving it to my favs:)

Hey gals!

ACU! Sorry I haven't been here! Been down with the flu! Hope to get back into the swing of things soon! Have a LO on my kitchen table...yes my table! I can't find my scraproom table at the moment! It needs some little something extra...so maybe it will be stitching! We'll see what tomorrow brings!

Hi Becky! I hope you're getting over the flu and able to get some stitching done!

I wanted to reveal the 2nd twist. As some of you already know, I am on the design team for the Paper Mixing Bowl, a really fun recipe style monthly challenge site. So the twist is to check it out and play along this month. One of the requirements is to stitch and the color combo this month is GORGEOUS!Anyone who enters there and here will get an extra 2 votes at the end of the month.

Here's my take on Sushi. I hand stitched the circle.

Awesome LO Drea! I got my LO done but didn't stitch. I really need to clean up my space. And now with my new printer it is making it really tight next to my machine....so I think I need to revamp a little to make it work again. Let's hope in the next few days so I can get this challenge done!

We are doing a large 75th birthday party for her the middle of April and would like to get most of it done by then. Do you think I can accomplish it?

ACU on love- sorry I've been MIA on all the posts lately- hope to scrap this weekend- only commitment is getting groceries- I have a 2-page planned out & think I have how/where I'm stitching on it figured out...
