Challenge 4 time....


The Art and Soul Challenge!

You both must complete this challenge! However, this is a FAST FORWARD challenge which means that the first team done can SKIP the January 18th challenge if they wish!

1. The Art of it:Your LO must have artistic flair! Literally! Your LO must have at least 3 things "artsy" and/or "altered" on it--(such as but not limited to: paint splatters, a paintbrush, paint spills, crayon doodles, goopy glitter, watercolors, canvas AND/OR altered art items such as wings on photos, art dolls, vintage doodads, ephemera, etc). Really stretch yourself and try something "artsy" that you haven't tried before!

2. The Soul of it:You must journal something from your Soul. Something positive, heartfelt and meaningful to you in your life! Something you've learned, something you've gleaned from your life experience. Perhaps something you would want to pass on to the next generation! (It can even be your favorite quote and why it touches/inspires you) Uplift us, make us smile--inspire us! You must share your journaling with us-if it's hard to read or blended into the background-part of the challenge is to share your journaling in your description.

ADSR - Stop #3

Congratulations, you have found the third challenge on the Amazing Digital Scrapbook Race journey. This is a regular stop, which means that both racers will need to do their own layout. Your challenge is simple. Find the first layout you created that is still uploaded to a gallery and scraplift it using techniques, trends and concepts that you have learned since you did that original layout.

You can...
You can use a different kit, elements, papers, brushes, shapes, etc.
You can add and remove elements, papers, etc.
You can use a different sized canvas.
You can move things around and change the overall sketch of the layout.
You can use the first layout uploaded to any gallery.

This does not necessarily mean that it's the first layout you ever did. When you view your gallery, at whichever site it is at, it needs to be the first layout uploaded to that gallery. Example: This is my gallery at Gotta Pixel (I have other galleries on other sites). If you go to the very last page, and find the very last image, that is the first layout I uploaded to Gotta Pixel. That is the layout that needs to be used.

You can not...
You can not add additional photos to the layout.
You can not remove any photos from the layout.
You can not add additional text to the layout; journaling, alphas that spell out a word, word art, journaling. The only text that appears on the layout must be identical in verbiage to what it was originally. You can change the font, you can convert text into an alpha. If your layout previously used an alpha or wordart, you can convert that alpha/wordart to text or use a new alpha/wordart to spell the same thing.

When you are done though, you must have the same words that were on the old layout, on the new layout.

My first ADSR challenge!!!

Our first Challenge was found this morning at Hummies World (

and here are the instructions:

My challenge for you is to

1) Rip and tear a photo into three or more pieces! (that's a photo, not papers!)

2) Use journaling on your layout (something I stress is SO important).

This is a challenge to be completed by both racers.That's it! Anything else goes! You can have more than three tears. You can have more than one photo on your layout. You can have a lot or a few elements. You can use any theme. Just get a memory preserved as that is what scrapping is all about.You can use any method to rip your photos. You can use any products from anywhere to rip your photos. However, I do have some tutorials available as shown below. Let's all help each other learn.

And here is my LO using Kris Meyers soon to be released kit Frosty Days! You can pick up her kit here this week!
