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 11/30 and you will be entered.

You then mail two UGLY 12x12 pieces of paper and one ugly embellishment BY 12/5 (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 12/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 12/31 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.

hey guys....long time, I know. Life has been insane. I'm not ready to jump in again....and I know I was flaky before...but I'd love to hang out with y'all again. I've missed playing with paper...and missed your company so much. Hope I'm welcome back...and I'll explain some of the reason for the flakiness.

Jenn - so good to see that you have a little time to jump in - and since I know the 'reason' for your flakiness- I can say- she wasn't really flaking- life happens

In response to Divinenight

between a teenage girl who has been very rebellious, an abusive boss who insisted on a one year project be done in six months, and the most difficult semester of university classes ever, I'm surprised I survived at all.

Some changes going on here with me. Might be quitting my job, and my course schedule is quite a bit lighter. The teenager continues to be frustrating. But good news is that my husband is doing really well with his recovery and barely walks with a limp. He'll be done with his Master's degree and teaching credential in May when I'll graduate with my BA in Psychology. I'm reopening my Etsy shop in a week, so am busy getting things made for that. In February, I'm hoping to return to scrapbooking.

It's been rough...but I'm surviving...and so glad to be back.

LOL - it had nothing to do with the pps and everything to do with life events. Hopefully I can get on track better - which reminds me- I need to pull pps & get them ready for when I get an address

Ok. I'm about to start sending out addresses. We have people coming in today so I may have to send them out a little at a time.

A friend of ours has a friend where the young teen boys are being very disrespectful of their mother since the new marriage. So we are playing Camp Detention and making the boys learn what work is mucking stalls and working today. We will be having them work off the disrespect and the curse words they call their mother with the promise that if they do it again they will be back again.

DaNel - that sounds like a great lesson- too bad more parents & society in general doesn't make kids responsible for their actions. Love it

I didn't get out yesterday. It rained in the early am & the temp dropped & by 9am it was snowing hard. I figured snow on top of freezing rain makes for slick roads. By the time DH came home he said all the roads were fine- but today the sun is out- it's colder, started out at 12 w/a note "feels like 3" on my Weatherbug app. I'll head to the PO after lunch

My papers will go out Tuesday. John did not have time to pick them out this weekend. We were getting prepared for this cold snap with the horses and making sure everyone is warm.

Mine went postal Friday

We haven't seen it this cold here in Middle TN since we moved here 24 years ago - and looking at the map- I guess I have no room to complain as those of you in the north are getting hit hard- negative 40s & 50s and less YIKES! Prayers to all to stay warm and safe.

It's -13 here now with a wind chill of -35. Your nose sticks together when you breathe.

This is what I came up with for my uglies!

Hello ladies, I've been MIA with the flu (mild case) and now that's gone I've got a cold, when it rains it pours.

DANEL - Super way to get those disrespectful boys to knock off their attitudes. Have they been back?

DEBBIE - Welcome back, we've all missed you and your banter. I've been able to spread out my ANGEL WINGS and just chill!!!

Here are my before and after UGLIES!!
