Hey y'all it's almost that time! About 40 minutes or so! I'm gonna go ahead and post the how-to:

Please remember, if this is your first SS with me, I'm terrible with names and will call you by your username unless you tell me your real name! You've been warned!! Hehe.

Starting at the top of the hour, I will post your first instruction, followed by 1 more instruction every ten minutes through the hour.

At the top of the second hour. I will post the 7th and final instruction and then you'll have 1 additional hour to finish and post your LOs.

(I will allow a 15 min. grace period for gallery posting purposes. The gallery may slow down when we were all trying to post at once!)

If we have any other technical difficulties, I might also allow a few extra minutes. I will let you know.

Please note that prizes will not be given out to entries posted after this time, although we would still love to see what you have come up with!!

You must post in the Speed Scrap gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=927) AND link back here in the forum. If you do not post back here I will not know that you have participated and you will not be able to receive the prize.

Some important things to remember to make the Speed Scrap go a bit smoother:

- The instructions are all pretty self-explanatory, but remember that you can interpret them creatively. I may be an Army wife, but I'm no drill sergeant! Do the best you can on the instructions, but don't freak out over them. Be creative! You won't be disqualified!!

- You can use a template if you want.

- goDigitalScrapbooking products are NOT required, but of course, we love it when you use them!!

- I will re-cap all the instructions again each time I post a new instruction.

- For each instruction there must be a different element. You may not use the same element to fulfill requirements for 2 different instructions.

-At least on Windows, F5 will refresh the page. If you go up to Quick Links at the top and choose edit options, there's a feature in there to show 40 posts per thread. That helps keep the pages you see to a minimum. And most importantly...SAVE SAVE SAVE!! :D

Please don't stress! Speed scraps are fun. Just take the instructions to mean what YOU think they mean and have fun!!!

PLEASE, PLEASE REMEMBER - post back here when you are done so I will know you are playing along!!

1. Choose one picture. Yep, just one.

2. Choose two papers. They can be patterned or solid, but both have to basically be of the same color. You can choose different hues, or whatever, like one can be darker than the other, but the same basic color.

Oh! And I saw on some site, I kaboodled it, that there's this SD card for your camera that has wireless capabilities! So you can take a pic and then send it to facebook or something! Totally crazy! And it can store the exact GPS coordinates of where you took the pic right into the photo's information!

Heck yeah! Each channel has its own website, and they all stream the shows. That's the main reason why all those writers had that strike a year ago, cuz they weren't getting any money from the ads that run during the online viewing.

And YEAH I WATCH LIFE! It's only one of my faves! And delete Fringe without watching? Never! That show cracks me up!

Okay, from what I just said you wouldn't know I cleaned up what I watch, but I really did, I swear!

I watched Grays first season then got over it. Any show that has a main couple get togeather and break up more times in a season than I go to the bathroom in a day (old lady bladder) gets kicked to the curb.. gossip girl is about to lose it's DVR slot. I'm listening to CSI.

1. Choose one picture. Yep, just one.

2. Choose two papers. They can be patterned or solid, but both have to basically be of the same color. You can choose different hues, or whatever, like one can be darker than the other, but the same basic color.

3. Choose 3 fasteners. These are the only fasteners you can have on this layout. That includes stitching, buttons, photo turns, staples, etc.

4. Choose 4 pieces of foliage. This includes leaves, flowers, sticks, whatever. And yep, you can use the same one multiple times if you want.

5. Choose 5 more elements to add to your layout. These are the last elements you will be adding.

Journaling sounds good. :) And I know exactly what you mean about resizing for small pics. Before you add the picture to the layout, can you try to change the image size? I know in PS that changes the whole thing...

I didn't get in until 10:25 so I am probably the last one getting posted but I wanted to do the scrap.

Thanks for jumping in, you did a great job!

My ankle still giving me lots of problems. I was lying in my bed with my foot jacked up in the air while you guys were doing the speed scrap!

Please keep your fingers crossed that I won't end up having to have reconstructive surgery. The possibility has been raised by my physiotherapist. She says that I'm doing better, but I just don't see it. Remember the pictures I took for the speed scrap when I had injured my ankle? Well I took new pictures last night. It looks WORSE than it did before.

But I miss the comraderie of this event. I didn't think that an ankle injury would keep me away even from digiscrapping.

For what it's worth, the swelling has gone down in my leg, and foot it just doesn't seem to be going down in my ankle.

What is so hard for me is that my active lifestyle has come to a complete halt. I need the endorphins to help me feel happy. So I'm a bit depressed, and feeling sorry for myself. And I feel like such a jerk for feeling that way.

Janick, that looks, sorry to sound so negative, but it looks very painful!!! Positive, positive, positive!!!

It's not that painful actually. My leg just feels extremely full and ankylosed in the evenings. The evenings are really tough. The swelling goes down during the night so I feel great in the mornings.

But anyways, thanks for commiserating with me. My family is quite tired of hearing me complain LOL

I'm sorry you are feeling down, Janick. I am sending lots of prayers, hugs, and warm wishes your way :) I missed you last nite and wondered where you were.

I know what it is like to have an active life come to a screeching halt, but try to have faith, keep posting here with "the GDS family", ok?? This place always makes me SMILE :D:D:D:D
