Hi and welcome to this new challenge at SAS. You are already collecting the Daily Download in the store, right? So all you have to do is create a partial LO with the pieces that you collect the first week and post it in the SAS Daily Download Gallery and receive a bonus!! After you collect the next week's pieces add some or all to your partial LO, post it in the gallery and receive another bonus! Do all 4 weeks and collect all 4 bonuses! At the end post your finished Final LO and receive a Final bonus. Easy, right? I hope you enjoy it! Since this is new to SAS please be sure to post your questions if you get stuck.

Exactly my question too... what is the deadline each week to post the "partials"? ;)What day of the week do we have to have our lo's up by?

janalyn
03-02-2009, 12:54 PM
Marilyn, as of this moment Day 1 is still active so hurry and grab it ;)

I am happy to hear that some of you are being introduced to the DAD challenge for the first time! It is great fun and also an opportunity to get some input on those partial LO's!!

And...Deadlines have been added to the original post...;)

Good Morning All,
I haven't been downloading the kit but I will start today.I will go and check it out.Thanks!

Whoohoo! Count me in!! I've never done a partial LO, but I will give it a try! I'm not sure, I'm probably going to be very antsy, I've never left a layout "unfinished" & posted it! My layouts usually start one way and end up in a completely different direction! LOL! Great challenge!! :D

A great idea for this beautiful kit. Thanks.

Another question - once our partial layout is posted for the week, are we allowed to adjust things in it after that? Or is it supposed to stay exactly as posted and just add to it each week?

Yes, the next week you can move things around some. Try not to change it completely LOL but this is just for fun so if you don't like how the LO is 'emerging' then change it! ;)

Here's mine for week 1. I missed 2 days so was limited. I created the shamrocks from the green paper and a Shape (or mask in some softwares) from my Scrapbook Max software. Hope that's OK.

QUESTION?? I thought Week 1 was up to March 9. Do we need Mar. 9 to do week 1 LO??

Marilyng
03-09-2009, 07:09 AM
So did I Berny.Now I am confused!:confused:

janalyn
03-09-2009, 11:35 AM
In a DAD Challenge you can use any and/or all pieces in your partial LO right through the last day to post to get the extra bonus. This first week, the 9th at 11:59pmEDT is the last time to post it - although I will be lenient because of time difference if people get confused...this is supposed to be fun, not stressful LOL. You can post your LO at any time during the week if you don't want to wait for all the newest pieces. Next week you can still use any of the pieces collected in the past week along with any of the new pieces that you want to use. Hope this clears it up rather than confusing it more ;)

Marilyng
03-09-2009, 12:35 PM
OK,I got you!!! Thanks for explaining it to us!:)

kimberkatt
03-09-2009, 01:07 PM
hehehe... Thanks for the comment Janalyn! You wanna know a secret?? I copied the fence from the right side of the picture to the left side of the frame to give it that "boxed in" kinda feel! The left side of the picture was the garbage cans in the back yard! Not too pretty! LOL! I do things like this with my pictures, cut and paste, to make them "usable" :p :D

The Bonus has been sent to all who participated in Week 1 (please let me know if I missed you). For anyone who missed Week 1, you can still start a partial LO and continue the challenge. You just don't get the Week 1 Bonus...;)

Great bonus, Janalyn! Thanks! :D

Can we use the bonus pieces in our layouts? I wanted to ask first, I loved your idea of the overlay on the background paper! ;)

janalyn
03-13-2009, 02:02 PM
Yes, please feel free to use the bonus in your LO's :)

Sorry to be so dense... but do you want to see each weeks changes in the gallery (4 images plus final) or should we keep updating the one image there as it changes each week and change the title to reflect the week? :o
