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 3/31 and you will be entered.

You then mail two UGLY 12x12 pieces of paper and one ugly embellishment BY 4/5 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to the address given to you by me. Make your layout then post here BY 2/28.

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 4/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 4/30 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 in- have pps all packaged & ready to go out as soon as I have an address. However- I don't remember what they look like as I had them packaged up the middle of Feb. So whoever gets them- I didn't pick them just for you- sorry.

I'd love to join this one, but by the time the parcel arrived from Australia the challenge would be finished.

Anyone got any ideas, maybe I could send a couple of months over together.

If you want to mail to me a few months in advance I can make sure that you get papers in time. We have a few ladies that play every single month and they I'm pretty positive will mail early so you get yours in time. Then I can mail yours from here for you.

What do you think?

Here is my page- I think it's done- was wondering if I should add some other words to the page, but with the journaling under the Yahtzee photo- maybe that's good enough

The smily faces on the title are the embellie

They came!!!! Nearly killed myself walking out the front door, the UPS guy propped the tube against the door and I tripped over it leaving the house. Don't know when it came yesterday, but it was much, much later in the day! I will get a photo of the 'cuties', later on today!!

Char...my thought is I'll find it when I move or get some sort of weird urge to move my shelves and clean under then or it could be the stove the things I find under there from the furry critter is amazing! I look under there when i seem to be missing my scrapbooking pens and pencils!

So here is what I had to work with this month.....

UGLIES
April Uglies By Cinderella4282

The papers aren't terrible, they just didn't have anything to do with each other. Football and Easter?

So here is what I came up with in the end......

PRETTIES
Color Eggs By Cinderella4282

The main background paper is the pink Happy Easter paper. The football was a little harder to use.....The letters from "COLOR" are from the football paper. I also used it to make the darker circle cutout behind the photos. I embossed over it to add in some purple color.

The embellie is also there....it's the orange ribbon on the bottom of the page.

BEFORE

AFTER

SOCCER By Sasload4


The soccer paper was double sided and the other side being journaling boxes, so I used one of the boxes to guess what? Journal!! I then cut the title off one of the other journaling boxes.

We're in the middle of a severe storm- possible tornadoes tomorrow. My DH is supposed to travel tomorrow to east TN which means the same direction of the storm- I've asked him to change his date to go till after the storm. He said he'll consider it

thankfully we have a storm lull right now- I just hope the predicted tornadoes for TN fizzle out as well as the strait line winds- we've had those thru here before- sounds just like a tornado, a freight train barreling down on you. The wind took off a shed roof that they never found & also did some other damage including topping trees and pulling off roof shingles & other things that were loose- thankfully no one was hurt nor did anyone lose their home. That was 8-10 years ago now that I think about it.

Ladies. I'm having a delima here.

I've not had many voters and here are the results. Should I do a poll?

AuntyT 1 vote for layout and 1 vote for ugliest papers
Charcats7 3 votes for layout 0 for ugliest papers (3 of those points were from her voting)
Cinderella4282 1 vote for layout 0 votes for ugliest papers
DaNel Hicks 0 votes for layout and 1 vote for ugliest papers
Sasload4 1 vote for layout and 1 vote for ugliest papers.

I of course always vote last but I've only had one voter. It is hard to do a poll with these results.

Can I get some votes please? Thanks Char for voting.
