JUN08VSBNB - 3 Minute Tour
 
3 Attachment(s)
3 Minute Tour

♪Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure,
five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour,
a three hour tour. ♫

We all know how THAT boat ride turned out! The passengers were forced to survive on a tropical island with only what they had with them. We're going to do something similar by loading up a "life raft" of supplies to use on our scrapbook layout in this challenge! Join us

The Rules

1) You should clear off your scrappin' area at this point. (That's the hardest part, I know!)
2) You need to set a timer for 3 minutes and you have exactly 3 minutes to gather up your photos, tools, papers, and every item that you want to use on your scrapbook page. Don't forget adhesive! (Make a "life raft" spot and put all of those items together there.)
3) When the timer goes off, you must quit gathering. Now you have made it to your desert island and have to scrap with only what you have.
4) Set another timer for 57 minutes. You now have 57 minutes to create a scrapbook page with your gathered items from your life raft. Don't cheat! You CAN'T use anything else except what was in your gathered pile!! Hope you survive!


Below is a look at my “pile” of scavenged supplies. Oops! I forgot any kind of journaling marker! So, that’s why my sample layout only has “creative” journaling made with Simply Scrappin’ kit stickers.

We are started!!!

jluvssu 06-21-2008 11:04 AM

oh fantastic challenge!! love it!

Misermom 06-21-2008 11:04 AM

Wow! That was an ugly post when I first put it up! Well, there's no perty colors and now the smoke alarm is going off here and the pizza is burning, but at least I'm off the phone with the credit card company, so should be smooth sailing from here on out!!!

Can't wait to see what everyone does with this!

Mewsin 06-21-2008 11:06 AM

how long do to get to clear off our space??

Lmn 06-21-2008 11:07 AM

As long as it takes, I guess - the timing starts after that. After all, you CAN do the other challenges not in their time slots...like about Tuesday of next week, if you are still clearing off your space ! ;)

Glad you fixed it since it was a little hard to read at first. :oops:
I hate it when that happens.

Yeah, the best-laid plans! Then the images to post were too big, too, since I was planning in my mind to use gallery links and didn't resize to accomodate for attachments! Then DH came home from golfing at the same time and all hell was breaking loose. UGH!

Also, a note - my layout pages are backwards in the original post. L is on the R; R is on the L - but that's no big deal!

Kerry3k 06-21-2008 11:17 AM

I love this timer idea!

Kerry3k 06-21-2008 11:27 AM

This must be when everryone is gathering their stash!
So quiet out there!

Misermom 06-21-2008 11:30 AM

Hopefully that is what is happening! Some are probably putting their chocolate in the "life raft" stash!!!

Mewsin 06-21-2008 11:32 AM

staci, yes, it was Chez's first Christmas. Trying to get her first year album finished.

Misermom 06-21-2008 11:35 AM

You're a good woman! I have jumped around so much that my kids aren't yet "home from the hospital"!

Goegirl 06-21-2008 11:37 AM

Great idea for a challenge - love it! I STILL can't play yet though. I'll have to get Raif to bed before I begin. WAY fun :)

Mewsin 06-21-2008 11:37 AM

arhawg 06-21-2008 11:39 AM

He left a little bit ago and I am all clean but EXHAUSTED! I need to eat lunch now too and oh I have promised dh that I would fix him potato soup again...from scratch:rolleyes:

Mewsin 06-21-2008 11:39 AM

Misermom 06-21-2008 11:41 AM

You have a special one-time pass! After all, I had to leave to go shut off the kitchen timer, remove the pizza, and try to get the smoke alarm to shut off! Uh-oh, Staci's cookin' again!
