Okay so I am going to try something I've only heard about. This chat we are going to try a challenge/game that is like a progressive scrap but also like chinese whispers. Everyone at the chat will take it in turns choosing from a list of items to add to a page.

Below is a master list we will be choosing from. You might want to keep a copy of it handy during the chat.

Just bring these items to the chat with one picture to scrap and we'll have a chinese whispers crop.

So Who all is coming. This should lots of fun.
And don't worry we won't be super strict on the rules. it's all about having fun!!!

All who come to the chat will receive a bonus freebie add on to Gabriella by me. See below


Bring a photo and a coordinating scrap kit to work with that has the following items or similar

Patterned papers
solid Papers
Frame
Ribbon
Tag
Bow
clips and/or fasteners
flower
flourish
elements

So bring your stash and come scrap with me and have some fun in the chat room at 8pm est on Monday 18th!!


Please note the kit doesn't have to be from the Studio.

Oh boy, oh boy! I sooo want to do this... BUT! 8pm is when I put the kids to bed! :(

Is it okay if I'm a little late, Tracy?!

Sure Kim, I am thinking I will try and copy it all down (the steps I mean LOL) so that others can still do it afterwards, though they won't get the freebie as that will be a link shared at the chat.

At least they can still have the fun of the game.

Well darn it all! My daughter is sick! :( Not the flu type of sick, but the runny nose, sore throat, miserable & whiny kind of sick! Sooo, not sure if I will be able to make it tonight, she's probably not going to sleep very well with a stuffed up nose...

If I don't make it this time, I'll be there next go around! :DD

Haven't chatted here before, but I will try. I was able to sign in to the chatroom, and even made it big and light enough for me to read. LOL Will that setting save, or will I have to fiddle with it every time I play? Anybody know?

How long will we have to do the layout? I have to change desktops everytime I use my PSE and use a different desktop for the chat - that means restarting my pc for each thing. Can I come to the chat and then get the layout done right after??

Ambowife Designs
01-18-2010, 06:28 PM
Of course if you come to the chat I will be keeping a list of pieces to add and order and then I will post it in the thread so you can always do it after and post. I will give you all a few days to post your pages. There is no prize as such for this challenge apart from the prize you get for coming to the chat. but it should be fun and that's what it's all about. And about taking the chat room for a spin and seeing how well it works. So please excuse me if I am a little befuddled by the chatroom itself LOL

So yes no worries there crlin

Hugs
Tracy

Here is my layout (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=48873&nocache=1). I did not add journaling, since it was not called, but since this page is a keeper, I will be adding some.

Oh Hun I was typing in that we would be posting the steps in the forum for everyone afterwards but you were already gone, I am so sorry. Perhaps next time you can chat away and do your page afterwards, less stress that way :) I know it makes it hard too when everyone is chatting away and the steps are disappearing off your screen. Good thing we aren't able to hear eachother LOL can you imagine it!! OMG I am so glad you still did your page and posted it Sally. Oh bye the way let me know if you didn't get the chat attendence prize. I posted the link during the chat several times but if you didn't get it let me know and I will pm it to you hun :)

PS I love that sweet photo in your layout too Sally super sweet !! :XX

Well, good news and bad news with me. The good news is I'm not only keeping up with my catch-up layout-a-day, but I so caught up with my "scrapping the now" that I'm fresh out of 2010 photos to scrap, so right now, "scrapping in the now is going back in 2009, hoping to meet the dates in the middle!

Of course the bad news is I screwed up the times and showed up in the empty chatroom an hour late, after everyone had left. We eat when David gets home from work, so whether he's home or not, 8:00 is dinner time for me! I'll set an alarm for next week!

I have so few folders to be scrapped with only one photo in them, so I ended up using the same photo and journaling for a challenge somewhere else, but I think I like this one better. I'm going to put both on my blog and see what kind of feedback I get!

But here is my The Studio version of Capicola for the Soula (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=49104&ppuser=2088).

Oh Nani My sweet, your journalling was so raw and honest and heart wrenching to me, it really took me back to 2003 when I went through the worst 7 weeks of my life when my father was dying of Stomach Cancer, I so so so wanted to be that little girl again where nothing could hurt you and you weren't responsible for anyone and the grown ups would protect you from the big bad world outside. How times have changed.
Big Huge Hugs to you and I hope to see you next time at the chat!!
