Default ABC/123 VSBN Letters W/X

Title: ABC/123 VSBN: Letters W/X
Hostess: Patty (pattyb)
Keyword: Fall11VSBN12
Day/Date: Sunday, September 25, 2011
Time: 6PM EST

Welcome to our Fall VSBN Academy. During your time here you will work on your personal ABC Album, the Subject is yours to choose. Each Academy Teacher will share with you what Subject they chose. You are to work on the Letters that they share with you. However, you do not need to use their word (unless you want too). The challenge will be their 1-2-3 steps below. Enjoy and be sure to share your page here and to use the correct keyword. Read the rules below your Teacher's challenge to be sure to get included for and Award or Recognition. Need a Subject idea? Check out this thread for inspiration!

We’re getting to the end of our album! My challenge is brought to you by the letters W & X. Such lonely letters don’t you think? Sitting out there at the end, especially X, poor guy he rarely gets to have any fun! For my ABC album, I have decided to work on a "Cousins" album and I wanted to go with fun and funky words for each letter of the alphabet.

My challenge to you is to give these lonely letters a fun and funky time! You can do two independent pages (such as I've done) or a two page layout, just have fun with it!

Choose:
1. Tag art layout, choose from here: http://www.pagemaps.com/images/2007%...007tagmaps.pdf OR Here http://www.pagemaps.com/images/2009/...b09TagMaps.pdf
2. Patterned papers
3. Shapes - This can be punches, die cuts, stamps, etc.

Here are my SAMPLE pages:
W Is For Whimsical

X Is For Xenocracy

Here is the GALLERY for this challenge...leave a little luv for everyone!

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. To be considered for VSBN Recognition, ALL CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST on Sunday, October 2, 2011 using the correct Keyword. Each letter can be represented as an upload either individual or as a double page spread.

2. You have a total 2 working hours to complete the challenge (the concept is you can complete 1 page for each letter represented using the challenge as a guide). For contest purposes, 1 'Letter' per participant per challenge will be eligible to earn award/recognition. For example: if you complete 2+ 'A' individual pages for this challenge, and upload each of them to the gallery you can only win one award/recognition for only one of your pages; other 'A' pages are part of the gallery to share but cannot win any award/recognition. If you upload a double page spread for 1 Letter as one upload, it will be considered one upload; please do not upload the pages individually or they will not be considered a double page spread.

3. It is the VSBN Challenge Host's decision to award/recognize pages that best represent her challenge based on the criteria in the challenge. Please be sure to write your description of how you interpreted his/her challenge in your Upload Description.

4. Please remember to put in the correct KEYWORD: Fall11VSBN12 when uploading your image; a wrong keyword means your submission may not be seen for consideration. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure you layout is seen by the host and all visitors.

Haven't seen anyone else, I'll bet they're all getting tired by now. You know, the tail end of the classes after dinner, everyone's dragging

Just got home from church. So I am going to be real behind! But I am here!

Great challenge Patty, and I love your whimsical page!
Well, have to eat something and then get started. I guess I know what I am doing for x.
I am making up a word! I like that Vikki actually had a flower that started with an X!

LOL, at least I completed a whole scrapbook and I'm all prepped for my class on Wednesday night!

Next project is the SU Creative Crew (which is actually almost done) and then the "Turn the gallery pink for HYCCT"

I love HYCCT, even if you don't do all of the challenges, it's such a good cause (One that is dear to me after watching two co-workers battle very hard and eventally losing against )

Hi...I've got a question. Since we are to do a tag art layout...does that just mean we are to use a tag on the page? And we can use any type of sketch for the pictures?

I got y and z done. Now I am to tired to work on this one. I will try to do this one this week when i have time!

Terry, I think it just means to decorate and use a tag on our page. At least that is what I am going to do. I printed off those tags on the page she directed us to.
Are you still working on this tonight? I am too tired! We did a lot of pages this week-end!

Terri - Sharon has the right answer, use one of the tag layouts and decorate it as an embellishment or title/journaling part of your page.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought at first I had to use the tag sketches for my entire page...kind of panicked for a few! Hopefully I'll have time this week to work on the last 4 challenges S - Z. Getting sick had not been in my plans for this past weekend. Have all the pics and words...just need to do the designing with your ideas. Tag should work fine and I'll use my cookie cutter tool to create some shapes to apply to the page.
