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 10/31.

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 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 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.

I'm curios how most people mail their papers and how much it normally costs them. I think this would be a really fun challenge.

I used a 12x18 bubble wrap lined envelope from Target. It costs me about $2. I think it cost about $2.50 to mail it, I know no more than $3. I still have the envelope that I received my papers in last month so I will re use that this time saving me the cost of buying a new one.

Mailing can be done between two pieces of cardboard or stiff material or in a tube that you can purchase. Flat usually mails between $2 and $3 and tubes usually go between $3 and $4. So not too expensive.

We would love to have you join our fun group of ladies.

This is a tough time of year and we all get behind so not to worry about the voting poll you did good. The embellishment is velum and says INFANCY (conforms to nobody;all conform to it.

I am not sure I'm going to get mine done yet again this month. Medical transcription has drained my brain. Then on the weekends I'm doing chores as I'm out of it after working. So I haven't done any crafting really in 2 months

My last day tho is Wed before Thanksgiving. As of this past Thursday we are 100% out of debt- that means the house- everything. We owe nothing but taxes, utilities & groceries...
On the Sat after Thanksgiving I'm going with my DH back to Ft Gordon as he will graduate 4 Dec & finally be done with schools for a couple years. Whew. He's been gone from home cumulatively about a year in the past 1.5yrs. It's not been fun.

Anyway- I may or may not get the chance to work my lovelies this month. I hope so. This weekend I've been running around all creation & doing basic things like dishes, laundry, etc. I need a nap.
