Default Inspiration List...

If you've not participated in a VSBN event please be sure to check out this THREAD for more information.

If you've not participated as a HOST for VSBN, once you let us know you're interested we will invite you to a HOST ONLY thread where there will be information and guidance from your Coordinator's and experienced Hosts. A fabulous benefit of Hosting a challenge is you get the challenges earlier so yo have more time to work on them.

I did a little researh for this theme so use the following as a SPRINGboard to inspire you in developing your challenge idea (be sure to share any others here too!):

TITLE/PAGE IDEAS
Leaping Ahead

Leap On!

Leap Baby 2-29-YYYY

Proud Leaper

Well Worth Waiting 4

I Leap, therefore I am

People born on Leap Day Do it every four years!

2/29er

Frogs / Jump

Multiples of 4 / Quads

Color: Green (frogs) / amethyst (Feb birthstone) / aquamarine (March birthstone): March 1 is a date that many Leap babies celebrate

February flower is Violet / March flower is Daffodil

Zodiac Sign for 2/29: Pices (double fish)

TRADITION
Leap Year has been the traditional time that women can propose marriage. In many of today's cultures, it is okay for a woman to propose marriage to a man. Society doesn't look down on such women. However, that hasn't always been the case. When the rules of courtship were stricter, women were only allowed to pop the question on one day every four years. That day was February 29th.

It is believed this tradition was started in 5th century Ireland when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about women having to wait for so long for a man to propose. According to legend, St. Patrick said the yearning females could propose on this one day in February during the leap year.

According to English law, February 29th was ignored and had no legal status. Folks assumed that traditions would also have no status on that day. It was also reasoned that since the leap year day existed to fix a problem in the calendar, it could also be used to fix an old and unjust custom that only let men propose marriage.

The first documentation of this practice dates back to 1288, when Scotland supposedly passed a law that allowed women to propose marriage to the man of their choice in that year. Tradition states they also made it law that any man who declined a proposal in a leap year must pay a fine. The fine could range from a kiss to payment for a silk dress or a pair of gloves.

NOTE
Astrologers believe that anyone being born on February 29th has unusual talents and personalities befitting of their special birth day.

I would be happy to host a challenge.
Just thinking off the top of my head I could do a 29 elements challenge where I lisy 29 things that could be used on a page and the participants have to use 2or9of the items listed.

or I could do something in regard to ground hog day, like use a critter on your page.

Or a sketch with a title challenge, like use the words leap or year in your title.

Just let me know so I have time to work on it.

thanks,
Joyce

Remember Ladies...Just because you may not be around for the actual event you can still jump in and do a challenge or two during the following week; the upload date is
a week later...or if you're around and not able to scrap you can come drop in the current thread just to chat.

Click on your ID in the top right corner (after Welcome); you'll have two columns the skinny one on the left is Your Control Panel. Under this area you will see Settings & Options; under that you will see Edit Signature; click on it. Write what you want to say and be sure to Preview Signature because I think there may be a limit on characters.

To link the VSBN page in your signature, you will need to open another window and open the page you want to link; be sure to keep your signature page open in the first window. When the 2d page you want to link is open, go to the address (http://ETC) and right double click then COPY.

Now go back to your signature page and highlight the word you want to use as your link. While that word is highlighted click on the link button (the globe w/ paperclip) and Paste the address you copied there. Again you can Preview Signature to see if your link is working. If all is good then Save Signature.
