View Full Version : Sept. 17 Scrap, Chat, Ect Chat Challenge

09-17-2011, 03:35 PM
Thank you girlz for giving me such a bright moment in my day
I love our chats, especially because we venture off into so many subjects, LOL!!!

After each chat, I will always post the challenge in a thread just like this one
This will allow those who were unable to attend to still participate

The challenge for September 17th is to:
Create a layout using a photo that you would not normally use on a layout

It can be one you just did not like or meant to throw away
You can choose one out of focus, but may be the only one you have of that moment
Once you choose your imperfect photo, the 2nd part of the challenge is to journal
Tell us what that photo is missing...or doesn't say.
Maybe just how or why the photo was taken, imperfection can be beautiful

My daughter is learning to use her own camera, and most photos are still out of focus
I still very much love this photo, and think it still tells a wonderful story

Everyone that chooses to participate in the challenge will receive this gift from me

You may use any kit you wish, it does not have to be a Digichick designer

All layouts must be completed before the next chat October 3rd at 10:00 am EST
Please post your layout to THIS GALLERY (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509) and a link in this thread when you are done
Allow 48 hrs for me to send you your gift, and HAVE FUN!

Please feel free to ask any questions and attend the next chat with us!

Thanks for the gift, Danyale. It was fun to chat. Saturdays tend to be a bit boring around here with no kiddos left at home and too far away to visit very often. I had to drag out the laptop as DH was working on my desktop again. I think we just about have it tweaked. Only a few remaining issues from the upgrade.

I agree, Vicky. I like having a little something to do just for me on Saturday. My teenager is always doing something, and I find myself waiting to chauffeur her, LOL! I am glad you are getting to the end of your computer woes, don't they know we need to scrap.....hahahahahahahahaha!

I posted a freebie matching this gift and my new release in this thread:

I just found this the other day and have a quick question. These go in the challenges and workshops gallery? I just finished my layout.

09-22-2011, 05:43 PM
Yesm, just plop them in there. I am sorry the link to the gallery in the first post is broken. I will fix as soon as I get off my tablet and to my computer.

And....Welcome to Digichick!!!!!!!:)

Thank you! I have had a bookmark to here for ages, but tend to be shy and never really jumped in until now. Here is my layout... totally different format than my norm... not sure if I like it or not yet.

aw, guerl, I love journal pages and this one is FABULOUS!! "Me" pages are sooooo important, especially when we think we need to work on something in our lives. I am so proud of you for scrapping "you", so pretty. :)
