Challenge #2

This week, our member Celise (username CeliseMcL) is challenging you to record a recent project. Be sure to follow Celise here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her!

This week I challenge you to create a project that focuses on some project that you have done. In my traveler's notebook, I wrote about my most recent mixed media painting. For you, it can be a hobby, a home project, a work achievement, or recognition of something someone close to you has accomplished. We all accomplish so much every day!  Let's tell our stories.

Now it’s your turn to create a project based on this week's challenge! Share your new project for the challenge in the SC gallery, then link up your project in the comments of this post by June 30th. We will draw a winner to win a $10 gift card to the Studio Calico Shop!

Guidelines for LOAW participants: 

The LOAW (layout-a-week) challenge came about from members challenging and encouraging one another to use their kits. Because it began before SC offered card and Project Life® kits, the challenge was for layouts, hence LOAW. Since scrapbook, card and PL kits are a part of SC's subscriptions, those types of projects are now included in LOAW. That means you can submit a LO, card, PL spread, minibook, or art journal page to a LOAW challenge. 

If you have trouble interpreting the challenge for the type of crafter you are, ask the host (person posting the challenge) for suggestions. Sometimes ideas we come up with make perfect sense in our minds, but don't translate as easily as we expect to another type of paper crafting. 

Each person may submit one unique project per challenge, i.e. you cannot submit the same project for two LOAWs. It's okay to combine LOAW with another challenge, though, such as a sketch or technique challenge. 

The project you submit should be one that is created in response to the LOAW challenge, which means no posting of older projects no matter how perfectly they fit the challenge. Any project submitted to the challenge should be made in the month of the challenge. 

Deadline for submissions is the last day of the month. Once the month changes on the SC site, it's too late to post for a chance to win. (I wanted to make note of this because I am a procrastinator and I'm sure there are a few more like me out there doing everything at the last minute.) 

When submitting a project for LOAW, please include a picture of your project and a link to it in the SC gallery on the challenge thread. Also, if the challenge asks for additional information, e.g. explain your inspiration, please include that in your submission post. SC generously offers a $10 GC to one participant. It's actually a promotion code good for 30 days. The winner's name is pulled from all of the entries. So if you enter one challenge, you have one chance of winning; two entries, two chances; etc. Hope you take a chance and take on one or more of the LOAW challenges each month.

    What a thoughtful challenge! Now I'm giving it lots of thought. I'm a project-oriented person, but I rarely document my progress. Good challenge!

    My big project of the spring was a twin-sized quilt for my niece's graduation. On the day I needed to mail it, we had NO sun. And this is my first quilt photo in my new house, so I didn't do very well getting a good pic. But her graduation photo was so good, I included it on the page (but covered her face for privacy).

    Celise your painting is beautiful!
    My project isn't quite as grand, but I'm pretty happy with it. Wish you gals could come and sip tea/coffee (maybe a cocktail) with me on my front porch!

    One of our big projects last summer was building a gate between our house and garage, I chose to include the documentation of the Project in my documenter album for 2017 (trying to catch up)

    Thanks for the challenge!
