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 7/31 and you will be entered.

You then mail two UGLY 12x12 pieces of paper and one ugly embellishment BY 8/5 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to the address given to you by me. Make your layout then post here BY 8/31.

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.

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 8/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 8/31 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 last day of the month you must WAIT until the following month. NO exceptions! (it is too hard to change everything after addresses have gone out)

If you do not check in and/or post your layout you will NOT be allowed in the following month with new papers. You may participate again with the papers that you have and you may be required to send new papers out. (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'..........

All photos must be coded so I can embed them onto the front page.

Note on embedding:

ALLOWING PUBLIC 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’.

LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Link/Embed Image' link in the 'Share & Link' box to the left of the layout.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

Just grab two papers that you yourself would not want to use (especially together).

Some of the ladies just make it look like they don't have any trouble at all. WE all love having you here.

Ok everyone. I just realized I broke my own rule. I let someone play this month that did not get their July posted in time.

IT was an accident and I'm posting this publically because I have kept people from playing in previous months and I did not want anyone to feel that I am playing favorites.

I had just come back from a camping trip, had very little sleep and the 3 week previous were crazy.

I do apologize and I am not trying to play favorites.

If the person would please post both July and August this month I would appreciate it.

Sorry I did not mean to fall off the face of the earth. WE are trying to get some stuff cleaned up for out of town guests soon. Been off the computer.

I'll check the votes and post last month's winner.

Got my uglies in on friday!
Char..... you shouldn't have! LOL
My husband was standing over top of me and said, "oh boy you got new goodies!"
I looked at him and said if you only knew!
I explained to him "again" that it was the ugly paper challenge.
I opened the box and I said ooooo... this is pretty!
I said to myself.... wait it's coming.
Looked at the second page and viola! There it was!
You really outdid yourself! LOL
My husband likes the second page, and wants to create something himself with just that paper, I said NO, you have to incorporate "both" of them if you want to do it..... he said, "ha!, good luck with that!"
He's no help at all! LOL
My girlfriend was over for girl/scrappy day on Sunday.... I showed her and she shot me some big eyes! She said, oh lord... good luck with that! LOL, her daughter was here and said the same thing!
Again........."YOU REALLY OUTDID YOURSELF!" lol

Brain is on overtime thinking what/how to create with it! Will post pic soon with the papers!

Oh and Danel... sorry I didn't post the LO for last month. I wasn't trying to get out of it. I have been busy with my doctors/surgery and lost time. I will finish the LO and post it this month with the one for this month. Sorry I flaked on it.

I was supposed to go to a crop this weekend but it got cancelled. The girl who runs it said she only had 4 other women sign up and she really needs about 20 to pay the rent. She charges $25/day or $65/3 days, it includes 3 meals, snacks, and an 8' foot table. You can leave your things there overnight b/c it's her church and she locks the doors.

So, I told hubby that I will dedicate Friday to scrapping still, just at home.

I'm going to start working on fussy cutting one of my uglies. Will post the pic of the papers tomorrow.

Karen- I told you in the note that it's to inspire you- really challenge that creative brain you have You'll figure something out-

Here is mine to give you inspiration. I used one pp cut in half for the bottom part of both pages. Then I cut the other into 2ea 1/2" strips for along the top of the page & then a 1/4" strip for on the journal area:

I always thought these papers were ugly, tis why they were never used.
They aren't terribly bad, they are workable... just not my cup of tea!

I forgot to mention, my son actually picked them out! I think he went easy on you! LOL.. he even picked out the embellie!

Have fun with creating with them. If I get you again in the future, my son won't pick them out! LOL, he was too nice! hehe

I hope you are better by now Char. I can certainly relate. I had one last month that was 3 days solidly and ended me in the hospital. This morning I had one come on suddenly at the level of the one that ended me up in the hospital. I could barely get home and spent the day in bed.

Wow I wish I lived near you! $65 for 3 days is amazing. Around here there are one day ones that are $50. I haven't been to a multi day one in years or maybe not at all. I went to one in the Poconos that was in a hotel but don't remember staying over although it was close enough to my house up there that I may have gone home for the night and done 2 days...

yikes! another migraine. You and I seem to run neck and neck for Queen of the Migraines. Mine are hormonally related and I have them for nearly 2 weeks straight every month.

I know! I can't believe there weren't enough. Of course, we are in a small rural town. I don't know if she would put posters out to advertise, if more would show or not. Oh well, I guess I can dedicate my day here to scrap. The problem with that is that if the phone rings or I see something that needs done, I do it. Or that nasty TV lures me away b/c I run it while I'm scrapping for bg noise.

According to mapquest, if you take the turnpike, it would take just shy of 2 hours. There is a really sweet B & B right in town. I'm not sure how much it costs, though. Heather is going to try to get one together next month. I will definitely let you know.

Where did Sandra get the martial arts paper? I want paper like that and can't find anything like it. All the Tae Kwon Do stuff what little there is is designed more for children than adults.

According to mapquest, if you take the turnpike, it would take just shy of 2 hours. There is a really sweet B & B right in town. I'm not sure how much it costs, though. Heather is going to try to get one together next month. I will definitely let you know.



Not sure if I can afford that and a B&B next month but keep me posted. I will start saving up. That sounds awesome!

Not sure where she got it but it will definitely work with some of my son's karate photos that have been waiting years to be scrapped!

My husband went too easy on you on that embellie. I tried to tell him how easy that was but he wouldn't listen.

The Tae-Kwon-Do paper I've had for years. I got it at my LSS, and I have seen it at convention when I've gone. I don't remember if it says what paper line it is on the back that could maybe help locating where you could get some.

Sorry I've been absent, but life has been so hectic one thing after another, after another, after another!!!

I do have a question for those who suffer from migraines. With suffering a migraine do you have high fevers with them?

ACU

I have had the worst migraine in awhile yesterday & today- in bed until my back hurt & then got up to try & work it out- kept sitting back down- bad day- still have it, but it's backed off- ready to head back to bed & I've only been up 8 hours
No- I don't get fevers with them- do get hot & cold tho- I'll get chilled & then later will get hot to the point I have to cool off- not fun. I even got a t-o-r-a-d-o-l shot yesterday & it didn't break it. Sitting with an ice pack on my shoulders & neck did help tho this afternoon.

I would head right to the hospital if you have a high fever with your migraine as that could be meningitis.

Char, I've been hearing in the news recently that botox shots have been effective in reducing migraines.

Kelly- they do for many, but I tried the botox & had 3 treatments- they do not make enough difference to justify the $700+ every 3months & that's AFTER the insurance pays their part!

I really feel for you and everyone who suffers. I used to get headaches at least 5 out of 7 days a week. When my dr. put me on BP meds, they virtually disappeared. Headaches can really steal your joy and your life.

Oh Char I feel for you. I get terrible migraines too and one last month ended me up in the ER and the IV didn't get rid of it either. It backed it off enough for me to go home and back to be dor another day. I had one this past Wed that felt like that one. Spent the whole day in bed. I had one come on yesterday and I immediately hit it with the Imitirx, Icy Hot on my forehead, then a fioricet and ice and sleep and fortunately when I woke up it was gone. Feel better soon.

I can't take NSAIDS any more because of internal bleeding so I am down to fioricet which my insurance doesn't cover and Imitirx which they only cover 6 sprays per month at a very high co-pay. I am planning to see a neurologist and asking about the botox. I've heard that it has helped a lot.

I'm on a BP med- which has helped- but I can no longer take maxalt or any of it's cousins as they create a cyclic headache- like being a regular coffee drinker & then not having any one day- but 10X worse. Anyway- diet & exercise seem to be doing me the best overall. To get that headache I did have a bite of onion ring- which not only the onion but the MSG probably was in the batter- not a good thing- I wasn't being smart about it.

I have a scrap retreat to go to this weekend in GA so I am being a very good girl with my diet this week & praying the headaches STAY AWAY!

Have a great time this weekend. Hopefully that mean old headache will stay away.

When I was at Gettysburg on Sunday, I bought my uglies for September. I think they are pretty bad...I mean good (yeah, that's what I meant)
