So I, Marcie from Designs by Marcie,  just realized it was December and I was like “OMG! What happened to my year?”  It has flown by, but I guess that is what happens when you are busy, busy, busy!!!

For this challenge, I’m requiring you to make a layout using at least 4 photos. It can be more, but not less than 4.  And in the spirit of the Holiday season, I would like to see you favorite Holiday or tradition or just a plain old fun time.  And do not forget your journaling so that we all know what it was about!
Rules….

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.

(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the Scrappin’7 Challenge.

(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.

(4) Please post your layout in the Multiphoto Gallery HERE

(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!

(6) HAVE FUN!

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE

Also… here’s how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Let’s see how creative you are and have fun!

At the end of the month, everyone will get a participation prize. (Be back with a preview)

DECEMBER 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge

Welcome to the DECEMBER Progressive Challenge. Darlene here, of Studio4 Designworks, and I will be your host this month. I hope you all had fun this past weekend shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you’re anything like me, my pocket’s a bit lighter – LOL! But now that’s behind us, and guess what’s around the corner – that’s right CHRISTMAS. How did that sneak up on us? But this month, we’re not doing a Christmas theme – surprise. And besides, not everyone celebrates Christmas in the same way, so we’re doing something different and our kit this month you’ll be working with is called SERENITY. It coordinates with the other minis designers have created this month with Posting Bonuses for other challenges. You will have a lovely HUGE kit when you are done if you participate in all of the challenges!

We’ve decided to try something a little different this month. You will not be seeing the preview of the kit to start with. Surprise again! It will be like waiting for that present you’ve had your eye on under the tree, but have to wait until Christmas morning! So it should prove to be a little bit more of a challenge, and we’re really looking forward to seeing what you come up with and your response. We’ll review it at the end of the month after reading your comments and see if we’ll carry on doing it this way.
The other contributors and hosts you know well if you’ve been a participant of past Progressives, Ginger of Ginger of Gingers Scraps N Pixels & Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Digital Design.

So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week. A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap and I know lots of you like speed scraps, but may not have the time. So here’s how it will work.

On the first of each month, Prompt 1 will be posted, consisting of instructions for starting a scrapbook page that will then be built upon through additional instructions every 3 days.

The idea is to work along with the challenge as the tasks are being announced, each task to be completed & posted prior to starting on the next prompt. (Once you post a prompt’s results, you’re finished. Don’t change your work for that particular prompt.)

At the end of the third week, you should have a completed page!

It’s fine to start late or catch up if you miss a prompt. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one. It’s more fun that way!

I will be giving you a download that consists of either papers or ellies to work with on each prompt. By the end of the Challenge, you will have a great little kit that was created by myself and Vicki of Dana of Dana’s Footprint Designs & Ginger of Ginger’s Scraps ’N Pixels.

——————————————————————————

So to recap – here’s the order:

1. On the first day of the month we will post Prompt 1. Then, there will be a post every three days with a new prompt.

2. Add only the items listed in the prompt given. You may add/alter shadows at any time.

3. Once you’ve posted your layout for that particular prompt, it is done and you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous prompt layout following the new step for the next prompt.

4. We will post the prompts sequentially in the thread. If you have missed a prompt, it’s fine to start late or catch up. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one.

5. Post your layouts no later than midnight (EST) of the day before the next step is due – this will be every three days.

6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* gallery HERE.

7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your creations and leave you some love!

8. In lieu of a posting bonus, by the end of the challenge, you will have yourselves a nice little kit.

9. This challenge counts towards the Scrapping 7 Challenge!

PROMPT 1 – MONDAY, December 1st
DOWNLOAD 1 HERE

Zip one has 9 papers in it. Choose one as your background. Next I want you to create a strip – anywhere from 2 – 4 inches wide and 12 inches long and clip a paper to it. Place this either vertically or horizontally on your page, but it must be off the edge of the background paper. Then I want you to create another shape of your own – rectangular, square, scalloped, curved, whatever you like, and clip a paper to it. Place this on the edge – top, bottom or side. It should also be the full length of your page, but not wider than 3 inches.
Post your first prompt in the GALLERY and then back here so we can all see and enjoy what we’re all doing! Please leave some love on each others layouts as it always nice to see some comments.

Have your layout posted for Prompt 1 by Thursday, December 4th, 4pm CST and I will have Prompt 2 ready to go later that evening.
