Trick OR Treat Challenge #5
Yes OR No


"Proof of our Society's Decline is that Halloween has become a broad daylight event for many." Author Robert Kirby. I thought this was an interesting quote ....hmmm? Yes or no? [Just rhetorical by the way, food for thought]


---- Here's How we Play ---- If you DON'T Pass Out Candy for Halloween or Trunk-or-Treat, play along with the Tricks Section. If you DO Pass Out Candy for Halloween or Trunk-Or-Treat, SWEET! You Scrap Treats. AND *** BONUS*** If you've already purchased Halloween Candy, you get to choose either Trick OR Treat!

Should You Choose Trick --- Scrap NO --- Scrap Tricks for this one are you must use a Sketch to complete the page. The title is also Tricky on this one ... mix it up. Use a combination of letter types, fonts, stickers, diecuts, stamps ....

OR

Should You Choose Treat --- Scrap YES --- Scrap Treats for this one are you must use a scraplift. Pick any page (your own included) and use some part of it as inspiration. The Title for your page should be inspired by a song. It can be the Song title, part of the lyrics or just inspiration from the song itself.

Arrow VSBN17Oct - Trick OR Treat #6


Trick OR Treat Challenge #6
Simple OR Fancy


"Halloween wouldnít be Halloween without good olí Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. For over half a century, the extremely round headed kid and his pet Beagle Snoopy, have become a staple of trick or treat themed festivities across the world, with their animated special Itís the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown ..." Did you know this special enjoyed it's 50th Anniversary last year?! wow! This year it airs on October 19.

---- Here's How we Play ---- The most iconic scene in the movie is Lucy moving the football just before Charlie Brown can kick it. If you exercised less than 5 times in the last month, you missed the Treat Section, Scrap Tricks. If you exercised 6 or more times, good for you, Scrap Treats!

Should You Choose Trick --- Scrap Simple --- We might as well keep it simple. Not more than 1 DSP and 3 or less colors. Simple embellishments include Faux Stitching somewhere on your page

OR

Should You Choose Treat --- Scrap Fancy --- Feeling good from all the exercise, let's do it up a little. Add layers, 2 or more DSP and one cluster of embellishments!

Arrow VSBN17Oct - Trick OR Treat


Trick OR Treat Challenge #7
Trick OR Treat!!


I hope you've had fun playing along with our Scrappy Trick-or-Treat VSBN! Less calories and more pages done with this one than the real one! Trick-or-Treating though is always more FUN with Friends ... let's enjoy

---- Here's How we Play ---- If you've posted here in SCS more than 5 times in the last week (7 days) YOU Get to choose what challenge you want to do. If you've posted less than 5 times this week because life has been "tricky" ... better stay consistent, play the Trick Challenge.

Should You Choose Trick --- Scrap Tricks --- It's Tricks all over again! Choose one of the TRICK Challenges you didn't do and use that to scrap a page! If you scrapped all TRICKS ... well you have at least 6 pages done so by all means, choose a TREAT Challenge But first ... head to last month's Goal Gallery HERE and comment on 3 pages ...

OR

Should You Choose Treat --- Scrap Treat --- Thanks for posting! Treats are better shared with Friends so this Scrappy Challenge is better shared! You have 2 Treat Choices. The first Challenge Choice is to PM or message another scrappy gal and ask them what their favorite VSBN Challenge is/was, scrap that (it doesn't have to be from October, it can be ANY). OR Better yet, agree to scraplift the same page/inspiration! Let's see what you both come up with. If you choose a friend not on SCS, just post their page and yours in your gallery (or link to where they posted their page)


The Following Guidelines apply for playing along:


1. Use Key word "VSBN17Oct"
2. You have until October 31, 2017 to post your Challenge Pages
3. Be sure to Link Your Challenge Pages back to this Forum listing which challenge the page is for
4. Have Fun!

LOL...love your sense of humour and ideas for challenges. Where do you find this stuff LOL? There's surely something in here even for those of us who don't traditionally celebrate Halloween, although it is becoming more popular here. I'm also a big kid at heart

Thanks Lela...awesome stuff. Happy weekend jx

I'm so glad you liked it! Just trying to keep it fresh, that's sometimes the tough part. Your question about where this stuff comes from is a good one....sometimes I panic that I won't be able to think of something then "wham" I get an idea. Personally I never like challenges that are so tough, one person can play, kwim? The more the merrier, it should just be for fun and flexible to launch anyone.

This one and the Nov/Dec VSBN I'm super excited for just because of the variety. I like when a plan comes together.
