Glad to see the brave ones saying Hi in this thread. You still have a bit of time. How about you send the registration link to your friends, in the groups or forums you hang around, etc. Maybe you know some people who might want to give scrapbooking a try? After all, the price is right!February 13, 2018 at 2:44 am #17087Joanne KParticipant
I have signed up. I haven’t scrapped for almost 2 years, but this challenge is perfect for me. I won’t be able to play the first few days though! I will be away, taking the photos for my book. It is our 30th anniversary, so this will be our memory book for this milestone.February 13, 2018 at 12:11 pm #17088
Registered and looking forward to this project!February 14, 2018 at 3:24 am #17091DeLoris MusickParticipant
My day 1 was of my grandson Danny. I only have 1 grandchild and he is the love of my life! He is 10 now (almost 11) and he has lost the ” little boy” in him and is becoming a young man. It is very seldom I get his picture these days, so I got 3 older ones to use. I used the kit provided and This Is Me February from Snickerdoodle Designs. This is a fun challenge! Thank you Carole! Your layout was beautiful!

Ok, I have given this a try. I couldn’t get the mask to work on the smaller frames. *sigh* So improvised. Masks are my weak point.
I’m brand new to scrapping, altho have been psp’ing for 10 years.
In any event, a combo of my pugs, elephant in Botswana and a Blue Footed Boobie (yes, really) in the Galapagos Islands.February 14, 2018 at 4:28 pm #17095Jnet AllardParticipant
Bravo Deloris et Leslie
Bravo aussi à toi Carole!

J’ai choisi cette photo prise lors de leur 25 ième anniversaire de mariage
Ce jour-là était aussi le jour de mon mariage – il y a 45 ans et demi
Ma mère n’est pas très souriante, elle a le coeur gros car elle savait que papa était mourant. Il est décédé 60 jours après cette soirée.

I just registered today for this challenge.

My day 1 is about my inlaws. Me trying to use someone’s template is kind of like me trying to fit a square object into a round hole. I have never liked templates so try to make myself do them since that is a part of what scrapbooking is all about. I think Everyone has their own style and I don’t think I have ever found a template that fits mine, But I do love a challenge and I never liked saying I can’t..so for what it’s worth here it is.February 14, 2018 at 5:34 pm #17101Luann IrvinParticipant
Hello, I just registered today and hope to be able to do all this. A little nervous, but willing…February 14, 2018 at 6:23 pm #17104Glenson JonesParticipant
I followed the instructions on the Day 1 email and produced the attached image. I learned a few things about PSP features.
I have never done any scrapbooking however and I have no idea what i should do next.February 14, 2018 at 7:31 pm #17108Sandra FarnhamParticipant
I’ve forgotten so much about PSP. This challenge will help refresh my memory. It was fun.February 14, 2018 at 7:53 pm #17109
@glenson: your page is exactly as it should be. There is no need to add fluff (even though some scrapbookers do, it is just extra). You could have put a paper on the background or not, and leaving it white like that is beautiful and really showcases the photo.
@wanda: I understand that not everyone uses templates, and even those who do will use different types of templates. This was mostly to show how to use a type that is not as often used, and you will see, later in the series, you will be able to create your own! That will surely make you happy too.
@Leslie: great use of the mask. You say it didn’t work for the smaller photos. What was happening instead?
@DeLoris: I love how you tweaked the corner of the frame to lift it. A tiny detail that is noticeable and makes it really custom.
@sandra: using PSP is a bit like riding a bike: you never completely unlearn it, but you can also always learn a few new tricks when using it!
To everyone else who joined the challenge, welcome. To those who are new to scrapbooking or to PSP (or both), you are welcome to ask questions too. We are all here to help each other and inspire each other.February 14, 2018 at 9:08 pm #17111
Carole I love your tutorials. I learned something new and that is why I love doing them.
I love seeing all the different results from Everyone. Beautiful creations by ALL.February 14, 2018 at 9:35 pm #17112VickiParticipant
Yayyy I made it! Now off to have some fun with this one 🙂February 14, 2018 at 10:37 pm #17114Sue ThomasParticipant
I followed to the letter the instructions for the mask. I learned something new this evening, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had been pondering on what I was going to create for this year’s St David’s Day card. This is what I came up with. The background paper is one of my photos, which I then used again in the mask. The love for my homeland. You can take the girl out of Wales, but you can’t take Wales out of the girl. I included the corus of the Welsh National Anthem. ( Land of my fathers)
PS I had trouble uploading image, after 3 attempts it uploaded.February 14, 2018 at 10:42 pm #17116VickiParticipant
My first one is of the love of my life on our wedding day.

A little late with this one but I managed to finish it. Thanks for the tutorial. Learned something new.February 15, 2018 at 9:01 am #17127Leslie PugsParticipant
I think not being able to do the masks is “operator failure”.
I couldn’t get the background to change to black. Masks have always given me trouble, even after 10 years. Even without changing the grey to black didn’t help. I have no idea why and how I am messing up.
