Post by kimb on Thu 21 May 2009 - 0:24

OK lorraine has given me the go ahed for this one .
i have a challenge book by elsie flanagan , called 52 scrapbook challenges and a lot of the challenges are really interesting so i was wondering if you wanted to take part in some of them , i would not do them in order as there are a few that i would not fancy doing and i dont think you would either , a bit weird , wacky , complicated ,deep , you get my drift .
there are things like
*use a colour combination
*make your own chipboard embellishment
*use a floral accent
*use a HUGE letter or number
*scrap your day

these can be done on cards as well , so if you dont do lo's then you do have another choice .

if you are interested id like to know if you would prefer a weekly , fortnightly or monthly challenge from me .I could even make it a saturday challenge or another day you might prefer , or the 6th of the month challenge , or any other number of the month
let me know in this thread please , and i shall set the first challenge later this week

Oh Kim, you are a star!!! Yes i will definitely do them, and I will do them at whatever frequency is decided, so if you or anyone else has got a preference of how oftn then go with that and its fine wiht me.

more crafting and more challenges is all the better as far as Im concerned, and we will all finish up with a few more photos scrapped/cards made etc and equally, I am sure Lorraine is glad not to have to set everythign herself (but of course we all hope she joins in because we love her stuff).

anyway, you can count on my support whatever you decide. Well done Kim!

Kim - that is exactly what I would like - and need too - but I think weekly would prove too much of a challenge at the moment. Anything else, I could and would manage - so count me in please. Lorraine - am missing your challenges!! (Cheeky, or what?)

Sounds cool, I'm with Patty on weekly being a bit too much.

Why dont you do 2 monthly, like we have with Lous cards or LO. That way people have the month to work on both or just one if they dont fancy the other.

I'm probably the only person, but the title of this thread reminds me of an Offspring song where a guy goes in a funny voice "You can do it!" Embarassed

I've only just stopped singing Blondies "Maria" when I see Maria's name lol

This sounds great, I'd give it a go. I like the idea of it being monthly but I'll go with the majority no problem. Thanks Kim.

oooh i dont kn ow why but i was expecting silence on this one , you have really encouraged me to do more thanks ladies .

kate i dont know which song you are on about , sing it to us lol!
kate if it were 2 monthly it would only be 6 challenges a year , and i dont think thats enough for a crafting forum really , but you dont have to do them all if you cant or dont want to .or just plain dont fancy doing it

Kim............. 2 challenges a month for a year would be 24 challenges, not 6... Even if we did 2 a month for the rest of the year that would be 14 (not including May as it's nearly over)

weekly or two weekly would be great . I mean if you dont have to sign up to do them or anything, well, excepting major diffiuclties I would deffo do them and people could miss out the ones where they were having a busy time... or go back and do them later or something.

as long as its not too much work for you putting them up Kim, it'd be great to have more rather than fewer.

Great idea Kim - I'm up for that. I would love a weekly one as it would make me get
a move on with my LOs. I'd be taking part in a challenge and doing a LO at the
same time. If some fancy different timelines, perhaps we ought to sign up each time
and then folks can choose if they don't want to do one every week.

So what's our first one Kim Wink Wink

looks like weekly ones is the winner at the moment ,, but as i said you dont have to join in if you dont have the time to do it , and as maria said , you can save the challenge for a rainy day . then you can do it when you have moe time

As usual, I'm the odd one out. Ha, ha.

Fortnightly for me and as I will still be doing the sketches and other stuff too, there should be plenty for everybody. I have a couple in the pipe line at the mo and I'm sorry I've been a bit slack lately, but I ran out of ideas. It's taken me a while to come up with things, but Kim will keep us going. Mr Green

However, if weekly is what you'd all prefer, then that's fine. Go for it! Very Happy

We DEFINITELY need more crafting..of all sorts.

I'll dip in from time to time, like I do now, I like not being tied to things (stop it Goaty) Twisted Evil , as I'm quite busy, but I do like to see what's on offer and what everyone else makes of it.
Well done for kicking this off.
