11 - Love 2 Swing

Rejoice by Teri's Thing-o-my-Jigs
template pieces by polkadotplum

Challenge 11

Found at polkadotplum!

Welcome to Polka Dot Plum's ADSR Humpty Dumpty Challenge. The designers here at Polka Dot Plum created this plum gorgeous template, a really unique layout for you racers to use, and then our kids got a hold of it. Yes, 5 minutes away to answer the phone, and this is what was left of a beautiful layout. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take this template and put it back together again. Now, how you do that will be entirely up to you and your partner. Each team must take these template parts and create 2 entirely different layouts(one from each of you). Each piece must be used at least once, and you are welcome to resize, recolor, transform, use as a clipping mask, but the basic shape must still be there. The grey "photo spots" do not necessarily need to hold the pictures. You may also add anything else you feel fits your artistic vision. These come as a layered PSD file and separate png files, so any program should be able to use it. We can't wait to see what you ADSR creative geniuses create for us!

The first step of the challenge is to look at the color wheel. You and your partner must choose opposing colors on the wheel, so for example, if you pick blue, your partner must use orange. It should be the predominant color in the layout but it does not have to be the only color used.

The second step is incorporate this quote in some way.“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” - Mary Lou Cook
You can use any part of this quote as your inspiration. For example, you could make a layout about growing. You could make a layout about breaking the rules, etc. You can use any part of the quotes or words from the quote. The quote itself does NOT have to appear on your page.

The third step is to include the following:You MUST include paint. This item is mandatory.Then, pick 7 more from this list:
black and white photo
2 alphas
something metal
patterned paper
funky font

8 - Someday You'll Know

NDISB Gallery

Dusty Rose by Modern June
photo mask by tempus fugit

Someday you will have your own baby girl. You will hold her close and tell her how beautiful and precious she is while stroking her soft cheek. in those quiet momentsall will seem right in the worldand you will get a glimpse of heaven. Only then will you begin to understand how much I love you.Now and forever.

Challenge 8

A Fastforward Challenge found at Elemental Scraps

In order to allow as much creative license as possible, we have very few stipulations about what you need to use on your layout, but of course there are a few.

- Your layout must contain journaling. Whether you choose for it to be 1 line of journaling, or an entire page of journaling, is up to you.

- Somewhere in your journaling or title it must say "someday". If you want to make the title 'Someday', that's fine. If you would rather make your title something else completely and just mention 'someday' in the journaling, that works too. Even if you happen to have a 'someday' word art you want to use, that's fine as well! As long as we can see 'someday' on your page somewhere, it counts!

- We love elements here at Elemental Scraps, so of course we would love to see some on your page. At least 10 of them! But, use your creativity! If you want to use 10 pieces of ribbon and no other elements, that's fine! If you pick one button, 3 staples, 2 flowers, 3 ribbons and a frame, that works too. If in doubt, feel free to add more.

- I am currently obsessed with tone on tone papers. So, I'd like the background of your page to be a tone on tone patterned paper. If you don't have any tone on tone papers in your stash, you can use the one below. Otherwise, tone on tone paper you already have will work.

Challenge 7

Found at Scrap Orchard

The Bucket List
Scrap 50 Things you would like to do in your lifetime. (While a Bucket List is typically a list of 100 things you would like to do in your lifetime, we've cut the number down to 50, given that you are all under a serious time constraint. However, if you would like to list more than 50 things, you may!)

When making your list, please keep your items realistic, things you could actually do, achieve and cross-off your list. For instance, we would all love to win the Lottery, but we have no real control over or means to ensure we are the winner, so it's not a feasible goal. Your items can be small, outrageous, bizarre, modest.. just make sure you have at least 50 of them!

You are a great joy in my life. I LOVE you!

Challenge 3

From Scrappers Online:

We would like you to do a layout that includes selective colouring.
Our requirement is that your layout has a focal photo, and that photo has some selective colouring in it.

We would also like to see some journaling. Scrapbooking is about sharing experiences, and we'd like to hear a little about those experiences. So we ask that you include some journaling, at least 20 words worth. And no, captions, titles or dates don't count towards your 20 words. Let's have some fun with the journaling, playing with colour to highlight, or using tags or something to give selective emphasis to your journaling. Just put a selective focus on a couple of your journaling words in some way. Be creative!

Speaking of dates, we want to see them. Half a century from now, when I'm long gone, I'd like people be able to look at my layouts and know at least when stuff happened. We've already covered the "what" with journaling, let's tell the whole story! And not just typing the date somewhere on the page ... we know you all are closet date element hoarders out there, lets see some of those fun and funky elements! Show us when the event was, when you journaled, share a date or two with us!

As a little check off list.. required parts are:
1. One focal photo with selective coloring
2. 20 or more words of journaling with possible highlights
3. At least one date element!

Credits: PS I love you by Stuff to Scrap, Scrappy Cocoa, and Flower Scraps

I made up a special poem, just for you Rach!

Since second grade I've known this girl,
In dance we used to spin and twirl.
We served food in the lunch line,
And often we would wine and dine,
On silly snacks like pop and twinkies,
And say weird words like zoinks and jinkies.
No wait, I think that's Scooby Doo,
But either way, Rach, here's to you!

;) Love ya!

Challenge 1

Welcome to Season 5 of the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race! We're excited to kick off the race at NDISB. To ease you back into the race, and to indoctrinate new racers, we've come up with a nice and easy challenge to get you started. Is that an oxymoron? Like jumbo shrimp? Easy challenge? In any case, we tried not to make it TOO challenging.

There are only three basic rules:

1) Your layout is about your partner. Introduce your partner to us. How you do this is entirely up to you. You can interview them, you can send them a questionnaire, you can use 5 words that best describe them, you can journal how you met for this race, or if you've been partners for years, you can make your page about a friendship that started with a crazy internet race and has since turned into so much more. The only rule is, the layout is about your partner and you need to tell us something about them.

2) You must include at least one photo of your partner. Large, small, color, b&w, of their face, back of their head, feet, whatever. But it must be a picture of your partner.

3) You must choose one layout from your partner's gallery and scraplift that as the page design for your layout. Only the placement of items is needed. You don't have to lift the colors, theme, etc. Just the overall placement of papers, elements, title and journaling.
