Why would you be crazy enough to scrap under pressure like a time crunch? Because it’s so much fun!!! And do we ever do anything that doesn't give you participation bonuses?
Ok ladies, here we go...

For the next hour+, every 10 minutes, I will give instructions on the next step to building a layout. After I give the last instruction (there are 7), you will have one hour to complete your layout, upload it to your member gallery and link back here. Please use GDS products primarily when building your layout. If you have any troubles or questions along the way, just post here and I will assist..

Most importantly............HAVE FUN!

Anyone participating will receive my Purple Passion Add-On:

And remember to talk lots here in this thread because you could be the one lucky random participant to win a $5 gift card to my store! I pick a post number randomly!

Ok, here's your first instruction:

1. 2 photos cut in any shape other than a square or rectangle but framed in the same shape.

OK...first dumb questions...are you telling me to frame the photos when I cut them out?

HollyS
07-29-2008, 11:04 AM
I had envisioned the frames being in the same shape as how you cut the photos.

Hi,
I just jumped over from the initial thread. Maybe some other people are still waiting over there, too?

Just popping in to say Have Fun! Wish I could play along but my laptop won't permit it at the moment!

Love that Add-ON too Holly!

Can't wait to see what everyone creates... :wink:

Here's your 2nd instruction:

1. 2 photos cut in any shape other than a square or rectangle but framed in the same shape.

katesmommy05

I'm trying to decide whether to cut frames out of paper or just put a stroke for a frame....

LisasMom
07-29-2008, 11:18 AM
I think I may lag a little here and wait for the next one - maybe get a little better clue of where we are going with this! :twitcy:

HollyS

Here's step 3:

1. 2 photos cut in any shape other than a square or rectangle but framed in the same shape.
2. attach framed photos together with string, ribbon or staples.

I sure have a lot of square and rectangle frames!!

HollyS
07-29-2008, 11:26 AM
Psst...Andrea's templates usually have circle shapes to clip to. You can borrow a .png from her and do a stroke for framing :)

ShaneMarie

Oh Holly left already! Darn! Well, anyway, I have mine posted but can I change it some and then repost the better one?? I really liked this template with the puzzle pieces when you mention a *different* shape and I like the blues and yellows of the collab kit for these pictures. But. . . . something is just not right. So please, please, please let me change it some!!! http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd317/JakesNana/00Favs/pplease.gif

Im still trying to get mine posted...am I too late?

I had a time getting mine to upload..Weather really bad here. Then I couldnt find the upload pictures to post it. Usually the person who does challenges will post the link to post it too. Then my LO was too large...Had to down size it after locking up on me twice. I hope mine isnt late. Please let me know.

Here is mine
