Default CUPID & FRIENDS' PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE 9-TASK 1 (02/05/13)

Cupid & Friends’ Progressive Challenge
Cupid is always close at hand during this month of Love and Romance!! This month that lil' ol' angel of love will start the first task of the February Progressive Challenge below.

{Don’t know what a Progressive Challenge is? Go here to learn!}

This month’s challenge will work the same way the Santa’s Sack Progressive Challenge worked in December. If you’re the task poster for a week, don’t worry about having a sample page right away--just post the “steps” for the task that week and link your page in that thread as usual when you do get it done. (See ** below.)

Cupid's Task 1 - Feb. 5, 2013:

1. Open a 12x12 document and add a background paper. You can layer one or two more solid or patterned papers, if desired. Use any colors you want, it doesn’t have to be a Valentine or page about love (although that might be fun!)

2. Place 3 narrow vertical strips, approx 10½ - 11” in length on the middle of the page. They can be plain, torn, zigzag, ribbons, string, scalloped or any other design. Have them overlap or cross-cross each other a little.

That's it for this week!

NOW UPLOAD:

- Remember to first save your page in its original version to maintain your layers, so you'll be able to make changes/additions in Task 2.

- Save your page for the web as a .jpg (600x600 or less) & upload to the Gallery by adding the keyword DGSCPR009Task1 and SBC13FEB when you upload. Please also post a link to this week’s work in this thread!

My page will be posted soon!

How the rest of the month will work:

**
Week 2:
Cupid will open the Task 2 challenge thread on Tuesday morning (02/12) and the first Cupid’s Helper (player) who checks the Task 2 thread will add Post #2 with their own steps for Task 2 (2 or 3 steps, please). (Only one person per week does this, though—otherwise Cupid’s arrow might go a little crazy and we could have a love fest on our hands!) Once the task steps have been posted, everyone will do that week’s challenge and post it, the same as always.

Week 3: Same process as week 2, but with Task 3.

Week 4: On the last Tuesday of the month of Romance, Cupid will, one last time, post the Task thread and the first person posting a reply in the Task 4 thread will add the final steps.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or PM me.

See ya next week when our first Cupid's Helper will post Task 2!

Yes, I think you're the first. There are a lot of challenges going on these days, including the mini VSBN last weekend and the main VSBN this coming Fri-Sun! I can't make up my mind what to do first. Well, I guess first I have to figure out what challenge I'm going to host Saturday morning and get a page done for that! Phew!

Love your take on task 1. Awesome!

It stands for Virtual Scrap Booking Night. I guess they should call it VSBW, because it's actually the weekend.

The link to the forum is here: Virtual Scrapbooking Night Forum - Scrapbook Meetup & Challenges

The two "stickies" and "020113 - VSBN Warm Up - Pick Your Valentine" are the 3 pertinent threads you'll want to read. Then, the "Archives" at the top will give you an idea of past VSBNs.

Default Nacoma Album page 2

This is what I'm starting with for my Nacoma album. I was going to use this progressive challenge and make my cat an album but I already have one started that I'm happy with - ok enough rambling.

So here is Nacoma page 2

Weird, I had another layout started and uploaded it to my album then decided I didn't like it as much as I thought I would so I deleted it. But it still shows up as a picture in my album instead of the new wone that I relaced it with. so when you look in my album it has the deleted picture, but when you click on it it pulls up the replacement. ?? Anyway I'm going to try to post a tumbnail picture, let's see how this works...



OK I give up...

Sandi, I had that happen too. I sent an email using "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page & they corrected it. It took awhile but it did get changed. I think I included the date I posted it & the link too.

Default Cupid & Friends Progressive Challenge

The thread for Cupid & Friends' Progressive Task has been posted!

By the way, since people are still working on VSBN tasks until this weekend, there will be no new Digi Challenge for this week (Feb 12, 2013). Molly (cmkebennett) will be back next Tuesday with a new one!
