Challenge #8 - Maz

Challenge #8 instructions:
FAST FORWARD! This challenge is for both players, but the first team finished may skip the FEBRUARY 1 challenge if they wish! A lot of us here at Oscraps are totally excited about the new season of American we decided to make our own version...Scrapping Idol! What is a Scrapping Idol, you ask? Scrapping Idol: a scrapper that amazes, inspires, awes, and/or makes you want to be able to scrap just like them.We all have a scrapper that makes us drool over every single layout they crank out. So, your challenge begins with going to that person's gallery and choosing a layout to scraplift. Go know you want to. Ok, got a layout in mind? Here's what you have to do to complete this stop on ADSR:1. Scraplift a layout from the gallery of your Scrapping Idol.Flip it, twist it, turn it, do whatever you gotta do. Just make sure your layout is inspired in some way by your idol's layout. If it isn't obvious how you scraplifted the layout, be sure to explain it in your credits...we don't want those poor ADSR judges working too hard, do we?2. Include a star somewhere on your layout.The star can be a brush, a doodle, a sticker, an element, star paper, a star of ANY type! If you need a star, we have at least one in our freebie section of the store! Here's a link to our Freebie section!3. Include the word DREAM somewhere on your layout.It doesn't matter where or how, just make sure the word DREAM is somewhere on your layout. If it is the journaling, please include the journaling in your credits. The word "dream" will be accepted in any language...just please point it out for the judges. 4. Please link up to the layout you lifted in your credits.Yep...that's all, folks. I'm all about keeping things simple in I thought I'd keep this challenge pretty simple! So inspired by your Scrapping Idol...and create your own masterpiece for us all to drool over!

Bree is my number #1 scrapping idol, but Bree and I seem to have a similar style, so chose someone who's style was very different to my own. I loved how this turned out.

Maz LO Challenge 5

Challenge Instructions:
Welcome to Round 5 of the Amazing DigiScrapping Race! Your challenge for this stop is to create a layout that has no photos on it, but includes at least 3 different and separate photo frames. Sometimes we have special thoughts, feelings and/or memories about a person or place or event or pet or whatever, but no photos. OR, we could be missing someone who has passed on or something that is no longer in our lives and would dearly love to be able to express that on a page.Because scrapbooking is all about recording our life journey and that of our family we can still create a page to record and preserve those special thoughts, feelings and/or memories with a little thought and planning and with the creative use of photo frames and journaling (although journaling is not required for this challenge).You could even try doing a collage of elements and paper cut-outs within the photo frames to create a pictorial representation of your missing photos.This is what I came up was a lot harder than I imagined.

Bree's Challenge #4 Layout

Wasn't this a fun challenge!! I just wish I had have left myself a little more time to do it justice!! Anyways, here's my layout.


Challenge 4 - Maz

Challenge 4 has to be my absolute favourite challenge so far! Loved being able to let my imagination run wild and do something completely different.
Challenge 4:
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.

Maz's lo for Challenge 3

These were the rules for challenge 3:
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.

This is a re-do of my very first digi lo from my gallery at The Digital Scrapbook Place. It is of Bree and Ashlee at Ashlee's 1st birthday party. Ash had just spat chewed up lolly all over Brees hand........and Bree is still smiling..........I just love this pic of the 2 of them.

And this was the original

We Made It Through Week 1!!!

Well, it's finally finished, uploaded and linked in the ADSR that makes it official.......WE MADE IT THROUGH WEEK 1!!!! Yay!!!

Here's our layout for Challenge #2

I Made It!!!!

YAY!!!! I finally managed to get my lo done for the first challenge. I sweated this one. I made SO many starts and hated every one of them. It wasn't the challenge so much as the fact that I haven't scrapped for quite awhile......I just seemed to have lost my mojo. Anyway, I am happy with this one, I just needed to choose the right photo. Whew, now I feel as though I'm off and running!
The second challenge has been posted, which is only one lo, but we both have to contribute to it.
The list of instructions for this challenge is rather daunting........A REAL CHALLENGE lol!!!!!

Monday, January 5, 2009
