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 9/5 (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to the address given to you by me. Make your layout then post here BY 9/30

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 9/5 **YOU MUST DO THIS**
- Layouts must be uploaded here by 9/30 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.

DH semi-helped me pick papers yesterday by telling me what he thought of different combinations, DS1 shook his head while chuckling when he saw them, and DS2 kinda make this face when he saw them.

Anyhow, my lovelies will be going postal today, and once again they will be going east!! I hope my victim partner enjoys the uglies beauties I am sending her!

USPS says the very pretty papers I sent were delivered yesterday! But I don't necessarily trust USPS (because of how my local office is ran, but that's another story...)

Anyhow, I hope they did get there alright! And hopefully their beauty didn't knock my victim recipient out!

It was hard giving up that giant orange chipboard feather .... thing! I've had it for close to 6 years, it was in one of the first "kits" I ever bought! But, for the greater good of this challenge, I decided it was time to let it go!

AFTER

POWER UP By Sasload4


I know it doesn't look like I used much of the papers, but I FUSSY cute the robot paper to get the circuit line in one piece, plus a robot and light bulbs. The crab paper I inked with two colours and used as matts, and the pull tab for the hidden journaling, as for the feather embellie I cut out the middle and stickled it as it put me in mind of gears and sprockets.

JCI - been super busy getting ready for a craft fair on 4 Oct & 8 Nov. Have family coming & will stay all this week- that leaves me one weekend and week to work as I go to a retreat the last weekend in Sept. Whew- then a cruise in Oct. Not a lot of time to get ready between fairs. Hopefully I can breath again in Nov- after the fair

I'll get the poll results and update later today (as long as it is slow at work).

I've had a rough week and I'm sorry I'm behind.

We put two of our old horses down yesterday and I've not done much of anything due to spending time with them and now I have to get caught up

You'd feel out of sorts because you wouldn't have anything to do, which would then make you feel certain that you were forgetting something!

Sorry I've been MIA. It has been a rough week around here. I've had to put 2 horses down, my favorite chicken passed, and we lost another chicken today (I wan't attached to it though)

But on a good note. We had our employee sale at work Tuesday and I got a Cricut Explore for only $106.00

Ok. Since we had a slow turn out this month (it was busy) I need the top 3 best layouts and the top 3 ugliest papers.

Let me know if you used your embellie.
