    Woo-hoo... thanks for the GC (random.org usually hates me...lol). The chat was fun...though I did leave hungry and longing to travel. Here's my page... it's cool to see how others have interpreted the instructions.

    Sorry I couldn't make the chat Kat, but this is a FABULOUS slow scrap. I love the fact that you listed the ingredients first. That really helped me! Here's mine using Happy Together by Juno Designs.

    Hey everyone - I have GREAT NEWS!!! The "powers that be" here at The Digital Press have given me two $5.00 gift certificates to the store to give out as prizes for people who showed up to the chat earlier today



    To be fair, I put everyone's name into a random list generator (at random.org) ... and here's how it came out --



    Congratulations Donna and Jan!! Keep an eye on your TDP private messages in the next couple of days!

    Thank you everyone who stopped by to chat. I mean, where else can you talk to complete (or almost-complete) strangers about Disney, cherry coke, Cinco De Mayo, scrapping hook-ups, geography, and time zones -- and all in an hour?! Can't wait to see what everyone's pages look like!

    If I've translated my instructions correctly , your layout should all be focused on the right-hand side of the page ... and not even reaching the center. ** fingers crossed **

    Most of all - have fun!!!

    Instructions

    Instructions
    1. Layer your papers with the pattern on the bottom, solid on top. Move the solid paper to the left half an inch, exposing the pattern underneath as a vertical strip down the right-hand side of your layout.
    2. Stitch along the right-hand edge of your solid paper, top to bottom on the page.
    3. Add your photo and frame (optional) in the upper right-hand corner of your page, about a half inch down from the top and just slightly to the left of the patterned paper (it shouldn't be touching or covering up the pattern). Rotate the photo ever-so-slightly clockwise, just to give a little visual interest. If you opted for no frame, then think about adding a stroke or outline to your picture to help it stand out.
    4. Add the circular tag element to the upper right-hand corner of the photo. The tag should sit on top of the photo, the solid paper, and the patterned one -- but it does not disappear off the edges of the layout (on my page, I have about a quarter inch clearance on the top and side of my layout).
    5. Now, this might seem a little out of step, but we're adding our title now (instead of at the end). Your title - keep it compact, one or two lines only - goes across the bottom of the photo, and when I say "compact," it shouldn't extend too far beyond the edges of your photo.
    6. Let's add some dimensional elements. I've used flowers, but something else that works with your page would be fine, too. The size, however, is important. We're going to 'frame' the top and right-hand side of your photo ... Start with your largest element. This goes on the right hand side and spills over the edge of the page. In fact, you might only see about half of the element (and the tag you put down earlier is underneath this element).
    7. Next, add one of your small flowers/elements at the top edge of the large one, right in the space where the large element and tag overlap - and yes, this little flower/element will also be only partially visible as it should spill off the edge of the page.
    8. Okay, that's the right side of the photo done. Now, let's focus on the top edge. Add your medium flower/element on the top edge of your photo - mine ended up being about the center and not really on the photo all that much (didn't want to hide the picture). Once again, a little of the circulate tag is hidden under this flower, and the flower also spills off the page (on the top edge of the layout).
    9. Add your last small flower/element to the left of the medium one, right towards the top of the page. Depending on its size, this element may only barely touch your photo.
    10. Almost done! Add your string or twine element - make it vertical, and following along the edge where the solid and patterned papers meet. Mine is layered under the large flower (on the right), but on top of the circular tag, and it extends about half way down the page.
    11. Add your brush to the solid paper layer in two places - first, under the bottom left corner of your photo, and secondly, at the bottom, right-hand edge of your layout.
    12. Add your small elements. One goes to the left of the bottom left corner of your photo (maybe just a little above the start of your title) -- I used a button here. The second element goes at the bottom of your page, sitting on top of the brush/stamp that you just put there.
    13. The only thing left is journaling. See that space between your title and the bottom of the page? That's where you will journal. Imagine a large vertical rectangle of text that is as wide as your photo and title; keep your journaling within these boundaries to help create a vertical feel to the design.
