Default Dec PS - Day 1

Woohoo, this month we have a Christmas kit that is not a Christmas kit to play with, lol... so everybody not celebrating Christmas will do fine. Although, it might be a little challenging for those in the Southern hemisphere... how about a "I'm so glad I don't have to live through this" or "Missing the snow" layout? lol.



Hmmmm, since it is Christmas time... how about reviving the old extra challenge (some of the "veterans" among you might remember this one, lol)? Here it is: If you use a beach photo in your layout (sand can be changed easily to snow with PS etc) you will get an extra prize. Last time we had some hilarious pictures of ppl obviously enjoying sitting in the snow wearing nothing but their bathing suits, lol - if you want to take a peek, these were from the January 2011 PS, around page 495 in the PS gallery.

Here's a recap of the regular rules:

This progressive scrap will go on for eight days. For the first seven days I will give you a download link with two or three pieces you are required to use according to this day's instructions. You have two days (Saturday and Sunday) to complete the last step (or catch up) and upload your finished layout. Please remember that I live in Europe, so I will not be around after Sunday early afternoon EST to send out links.

The first download is free, you will get the others via pm after completion of the day before. You can join in until Wednesday, but you have to complete the days to get the next download - and your last layout should be done and posted by Sunday night!

You can recolor and/or crop the pieces or change their opacity but you have to use them as specified in each day's instructions and once placed are not allowed to move them. Make sure you save your layout in a .psd format so you are able to place new pieces below others if you should wish to do so.

On Monday night I will post a poll to choose the winner who gets this month's Mega for free!
and there will be also another randomly chosen winner, who will get the Mega free, as well. Everybody else who finished their layout will get a participation prize - a coupon for 1 $ off this Mega.

I will also host a QP exchange for those of you who'd like to gather a great matching QP album!


The first goodies for this month were created by Boo aka BooLand Designs, Daniella aka The Urban Fairy, Vicki aka Dana's Footprints, Jamie aka The Kit Cart and Karen aka Snickerdoodle Designs (click image to download):





Instructions: Start your layout with a white background (not a paper, just a simple white layer). Arrange as many papers from today's download on this background in any manner you wish, BUT make sure at least 10 % (estimated) of the white background are still visible. (Please ask, if these instructions are not clear, I certainly know what I mean, but I am not sure it is clear to anybody else, lol)

Upload your layout to the Progressive Scrap Gallery, then come back here and post the link to your layout so I can pm you on Monday with the download link for Day 2! Please do not upload to the Mega gallery until day 7 - we've had a couple of confused people seeing all those unfinished layouts there, lol.

My first step, not really sure about the 10%, but there is a white border around the page with text.

Lovely papers, thanks all!


And thank you Min for hosting

I can't join this month since I'll be leaving next Sunday to go to Alabama to see those twin grandsons. An unexpected gift. My son & d-i-l have to take care of personal business and he was able to get leave and stay until Jan. 2nd. I'm staying from 12/15 - 12/30! We're all so excited they will be in the States for Christmas.
Have fun and I'll check out all the layouts when I get back and Merry Whatever You Celebrate!
