Default APRVSN17O ~ Sat. April 1 - 10 pm ET ~ The Greatest Hoax ~ scrapaholic007

Challenge Title: The Greatest Hoax
Hostess: scrapaholic007 (Shannon)
Keyword: APRVSN17O
Date: Saturday, April 1, 2017 10PM EST

This has been a fantastically creative weekend! We're finishing it off with The Greatest Hoax challenge! Your challenge is to read through this link of the The Top 100 Greatest April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time, laugh and laugh, then choose a hoax that inspires you. There are some incredulous claims that people actually fell for! Be sure to tell us which Hoax you chose!
I'm adding in a fun bonus twist! Fool your recipient with something sneaky! Such as, an upside down panel, or a funky fold that's hard to open, or maybe a glued shut card! Hahaha! HAVE LOTS FUN with this!

View the gallery for this challenge: HERE
View the April Fool's Gallery:HERE
View the April Fool's Challenge Thread: HERE

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, April 9.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the April Fool's VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose April Fool's - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

A very special Shout Out of Gratitude to my lovely sample makers. Thank you all so much for taking the time!

Shannon, this was such a fun challenge, and I think it is a great resource for card ideas! So much inspiration, it could take a while to get through them all!

Nothing like the dreaded Brunus edwardii strain to mess up a teddy bear. Please see attached report by Dr. K. E. Mernow, well-known edwardii specialist.

This one was really fun. I tried a new background technique that I've been seeing lately and I loved the chance to use my Playful Pixiestamp. Thanks Shannon!

Went with the White Elephant hoax because I have this cute little stamp that doesn't get enough ink.

Thanks for the challenge!
