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 4/30 and you will be entered.

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

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 5/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 5/31 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.

Tayrah - I went to HL and they had bundles of 50 diff pps (you couldn't tell all what was in it) but it was pps that didn't sell & they were $4.99 each pack- so I picked one up & have some great combos now to send

Hi DaNel, I'm joining in. I just pm'd my address to you. Does the embellishment need to be new or handmade? Can we alter the papers that are sent to us? Thanks,

The embellishment can be new or handmade. You CAN alter the papers. They just both need to be on the papers. Look through a few of the previous months to see the examples of completed layouts.

Went through my pack of papers and I don't even think half of them were that ugly! So either this challenge has changed my definition of ugly or the papers were nicer than anticipated.

I looked at them mostly as what combos were the most drastic- that qualified for me most of the stack. There are several that were in the same kind of color or theme group so will need a couple outside pps from the pack I bought.

I'm using my papers from last month.

So here are the uglies I received -


and here is how I used them (the one page is the background, the other page and the embellishment are the layered flowers. I embossed and inked the paper before I cut them.

I got my papers a few of days ago and sent mine out a day or so after the fifth. Sorry about that. I've just moved in with my boyfriend and couldn't find them. I've been un-packing and working but when I moved from a house to an apartment I never realized how little space I'd REALLY have. Lucky for me, I have an awesome boyfriend who doesn't mind living in a storage shed, lol! BTW I'll try to put a photo up tomorrow.

I'm partially done with my layout! My cat has decided that any and all papers that fall to the floor are hers to destroy. I picked up one of my uglies off the floor and suddenly its full of claw puncture marks. I finally turned down the ceiling fan so they should not fly off anymore.

Yikes Tayrah- maybe it's cat disapproval there.

Thankfully my cats just knock stuff off & lay on things like they own them

Woo hoo I'm done. It was 'suggested' I hide it all behind paint but I thought I'd give it a go and added 1 piece of cardstock only.

Thanks to Charcats7 for the papers and for DaNel for giving me the chance to join in.

cheers Angela

So I got some doozies this month, so it took me a little while to come up with a plan.

Here are my "uglies"
May Ugly Papers By Cinderella4282
I actually really liked the Kraft paper. It cut up so nicely into embellishments to use on the page. But the Veggie Tale paper and the transparent embellishment I wasn't so sure of.......but then I fell on some photos of my DD in the petting zoo at the local pumpkin farm last fall.

Here is the finished product:
Love Pets By Cinderella4282
I used the Kraft paper for the embellishment cluster and the numerals for the numbering of the photos. I added color to the Kraft paper using my Tim Holtz distress markers. The "LOVE" from the title also came from the Kraft paper.

I used the Veggie Tale paper to add the contents to the burlap sack I made by sewing two pieces of burlap together. I also added a few veggies to the upper cluster as well to balance it out.
