Hi everyone! Welcome to another month of the Four Categories Challenge! This challenge is about using our 'stuff' and, maybe, trying something new.

The goal is to complete up to four different LO's, each one fulfilling a different category - product, color, technique, and theme. You may enter one LO for each category, but you may not use the same LO to fulfill more than one of these categories. You do not have to do all four. You may, of course, stack other challenges with any of the LO's you enter here. Only LO's created and uploaded between September 1 and midnight PST September 30, 2015 will qualify.

At the end of the month, I will ask you to vote for your top 3 favorites from each category. You will receive a vote for each of your LO's just for voting, and any qualifying LO's that include the twist will get an extra vote. Those who complete all four LO's will receive an additional vote for each of their LO's. I will create a poll with the top vote-getters from each category so we can choose an overall winner to whom I will send a small RAK. In addition, I will send a little something to an eligible challenge participant chosen by Random.org. To be eligible for this second RAK, a player must enter at least one LO in the challenge, check into the thread at least a few times during the month, AND send in votes before I set up the poll.

Please, read the specs for each challenge carefully! If you have a question, ask!

Category One ~ Product: Ink Pads
This month, break out your ink pads. You can do something as simple as inking your edges or stamping, or you can take a little more time and do some dry masking or try some water effects with your distress inks. Anything goes – but please use ink pads, not liquids, like stains or mists.
Twist: Use 2 or more different techniques with your ink.

Category Two ~ Color: Blue and Gold
My daughter started at Marquette University this week, so I chose Blue and Gold for our colors this month. I'm giving you Marquette's official colors as inspiration, but I will accept any shades of these two colors, as long as you include both.
September Four Categories Color Inspiration By Dancinirish90
Twist: Include a bird somewhere on your page.

Category Three ~ Technique: Texture
Do something to create texture on a LO this month. You can use fabric, modeling paste, embossing, chipboard, etc.
Twist: Include at least 3 different textures on your page.

Category Four ~ Theme: Transitions
My daughter is transitioning to college this fall, and I am transitioning to an empty nest. Life is full of transitions: becoming parents, retirements, firsts, lasts, moving, weddings, braces on or off, starting solid food, etc. You get the picture. Do a LO about one of your life transitions.
Twist: Include a quote on your page.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The fine print:
1. Any size LO 8x8 or larger is allowed, including 2-pagers. Please post your 2-page LO's with one photo of both pages together. However, if you are using the 2 sides of a 2-page LO for different categories, please post each page separately. I will allow digi, but please realize some of the challenges will not apply to digi (especially in the technique category). If you can convince me that your digi LO fulfills the challenge, I will allow it. Keep in mind that the RAK will be for paper scrapping.

2. Please allow public embedding on your pages. Also, please specify the category in which you are entering your LO in your post and in your description. If applicable, please explain how your LO fits the challenge, and if you did the twist and where/how. Don't make me hunt for it. If I can't see it, and you didn't tell me about it, you won't get credit for it.

3. If you get love, leave love. I will not be a psycho about this, just do the best you can. However, if I notice that someone habitually neglects commenting on the other players' entry LO's, that person will be disqualified from winning the RAK. No one is going to be excluded from the voting or poll and the chance to win the challenge. I'm just reserving the right to NOT spend my own time and money on buying and shipping a RAK to a person who doesn't participate. It's only if I never or only rarely see the winner's posts on other LO's in the gallery or the winner is someone who doesn't check in here in the forum a few times a month that I will check into it further and decide for myself if I want to make the effort to send something out. Please, don't stress about it!

4. Please, only share LO's that fit one or more of the categories. Commenting on shared LO's is up to each individual player.

Beyond the Stars By Notanavgblond with *TWIST*
Ok I kinda lucked out on this one. I was already finishing it up when I saw the categories for this month. The glittery paper, chipboard flourishes, and the coiled rope clouds were just apart of the plan. But oh well. Glad I ran out of time to finish it last month!! Haha

Believe it or not - we are updated to here. I posted last month's winner to the front page a while back, but I never announced it here:

Congrats to Jessie...
(58) Today By Notanavgblond

...and Amanda, who is our Random winner!

I am, of course, very behind on RAKs. I apologize for that. I have had to push scrapbook activities to the back burner for months, and I still haven't even touched my desk for over a month. I'm not sure when that is going to change. Here is a list of prizes I need to send out - I will eventually catch up, I promise: 2 to Jessie, 2 to Amanda, 2 to Carol, and one each to Lesley, Amy, Lea, Denise. Please bear with me.

Cassie is adjusting really well to college. She's in a quad, and all 4 of the girls are getting along great. She did come home this weekend to see her best friend for her birthday, so I was happy to have her home, even though it was just for one night. I'm doing well, too. (Thanks for asking, Marci!) I've been busy with projects around the house and with my friends. I am having a hard time settling into a new routine though, which is part of my problem with keeping up here and with scrapping in general. Anyway, thanks for continuing to play, and I hope all is going well with you ladies!

Hi Lisa, nice to hear from you...so glad things are going well with Cassie. Anitra was in a triple her first year of college but they all got along as well and for an only child I think she adjusted well.

I haven't been scrapping much myself, the color category has been sitting on my desk for over a week. So many little things to take care around the house, also getting ready for our family cruise coming up for the first of Oct...can't believe how fast the year is going.

Will BBL to get ACU

So glad your dd is adjusting well to her new adventure Lisa! (And that you are too!)

Don't worry about being behind on RAKs! It happens - and I know I for one just love the challenges you give us! The RAKs are just a nice bonus!

I am ACU and hoping to upload my last one here in a few minutes if baby girl cooperates!

Here is my last one - category 2 with twist of a bird. The bird is the burlap sticker. I hope there is enough blue and gold. The background is a light blue but is showing up more white in the photo - let me know if it works Lisa!

Hi! This is for category 1 (with the twist) I stamped the date and the journaling circle, I inked up the distressed edges and the banner flags, and I also used the TH Black Soot pad to camouflage the rolled piece that exposed the back side of the pp.

This is one from me for the CATEGORY 1 - PRODUCT - INK PADS with the TWIST. I used Tim Holtz, Distress Ink - Iced Spruce for stamping, framing the mats, and the title was rather bold in colours, so I took the ink and toned it down.

I scrapped! As you can see, this was supposed to be for last month's 'Clocks' with the embossing twist but I didn't get to it. LOL I'm using it instead for 'Ink Pads' with the twist: I used Fired Brick on the edges of the red cs and also with a blending tool to highlight the embossed pattern, and I used Walnut Stain on the edges of the bg cs and tag and to stamp the clock and the date.

I was hoping to do school pictures this month, but I just found out today that DD's school decided to stop doing class pictures. I was totally heart broken, because I wanted to document the names of all her little friends in class. Who knows...maybe they will be friends 20 years from now (unlikely). Plus her individual school portrait turned out terrible. haha So I didn't buy it. Its not like I don't already have 1000's of pictures of her.
So I could use my Josh LO that I created this month, but I am not ready to commit to that. Instead I am going to try to push myself to do another Wedding LO from my little bro's wedding. I planned to give them a wedding album for Christmas but I have already lost steam...boo. I have got to pick it back up again.

Category 2: Blue and Gold

My DD a huge Ohio buckeye fan probably won't be happy to see these Michigan colors on a page with her photo I did some layering of ribbon on this page. The frame around the photo is made from ribbon. It was fun putting this one together.

Category 3: Technique: Texture
I had a lot of fun making this LO of my son at Easter.
The bunny is made with texture paste mixed with paint. I applied some glitter glue to give it some cartoon fur. The eggs are made with glitter fun foam. I had some grass like paper that I cut to look like grass. I had these fun cupcake picks that I cut the stem off of so they could add more dimension and extra texture to the page.
I used dimensional paint for the title and date.

Category 4: Transitions

I chose our wedding as my transition. This was another fun page to put together. I used my ink pad to age the paper behind our photo and for the quote. I dug out one of our invitations and added it. The rings I coated one with gold ink and the other with silver glitter for the diamond and gold glitter glue.

Congrats on getting them all done, CJ!

I'm on my way out to go print my photos for my other 2 LO's here, plus one more for the Music Challenge. We'll see if I can actually get them done on Monday and Tuesday. I'll be in Indiana on the last day of the month when I would rather be getting all my last minute scrapping done!

Dropping off my Category 3!! I think I have the twist, if not no prob!! I clear embossed the punched border pieces and the large flower petals, the word 'Cute' in the title is painted chipboard. Not quite sure if you want to count the tassle-like floss on the tags and the stitching to make it a triple texture or not.
I'm just thrilled I got a second on finished this month. That was a challenge in and of itself!!

Bev and Denise, got you both posted to the front with the twists

I did 2 LO's today. That's really good for me. LOL Only one was for this challenge though, and it's too dark to take a photo of it tonight but I'll get it posted in the morning. I'm planning to do the fourth one tomorrow - pictures are printed and papers picked out, so there's a good chance I'll get 'er done.

I am definitely going to run out of time this month. Tonight I am going to a dinner with a girl friend and tomorrow I am taking DD over to my best friend's house (they are like a 3rd set of grandparents to her). Plus I have to finish a birthday present for one of the kids in her class....I bought a little costume cape and ironed on Super MILO to the back, but it needs a little stitching to hold on the letters permanently. And I have to finish that before Saturday. EEk!

So my Transitions (CAT 4) LO is:

I finished this month! Here's mine for Transitions - it's about Cassie getting her braces off, and I used a quote from Thich Nhat Hanh (a Buddhist monk) for the twist.
