Challenge # 12

Challenge # 12 is at {we are} storytellers

This challenge is an INTERSECTION -- Players must collaborate on one project.

Pretend you and your team mate are sitting on a porch, sipping a cup of tea and chatting. You stumble upon the topic of storytelling, your eyes light up and you begin talking about why storytelling is so important to each of you.

Please create a layout that expresses what storytelling means to each of you. Why did you each choose this form (scrapbooking in general and/or digital specifically) to tell your stories? Why is storytelling important? How do you feel about storytelling (is it a creative outlet, way to express your words, document your family's experiences, etc.) Why are you a storyteller? (You don't have to answer all these questions, consider them food for thought and to give you an idea as to what we are looking for.)

Your story must include:
{we are} storytellers word-art provided.
At least 1/2 of the layout must be journaling, more the better
At least 5 elements/embellishements
No more than 2 pieces of paper
Only 2 small photos, 1 of each of you, placed in the bottom right hand area of your page.
IF you have a photo of the two of you together, you may use it and only required to have 1 photo. The bottom line, we want to see your beautiful faces!

This is the last challenge, and I hope we can finish it!

Team Double OO's are definitely no storytellers, we are story showers!
Pictures we love, titles we can do, but tell stories? Well.... we have until sunday to come up with something! And who knows, we are already licenced to scrap, maybe after sunday we will be licenced to blab!

Challenge # 11

Challenge # 11 is at Scrap Orchard!

You can ask any one person one question. Who would it be and what would you ask them?
Here are some layout requirements:

1. Your layout can have only ONE photo. The photo must either be of the person to whom you are posing the question OR must represent the question you are asking.

2. You MUST include your question in your layout and your question can be the ONLY words/journaling on your layout. You can’t explain the question or answer the question, express yourself through just your question and your photo.

Here's my Layout:

Question: do you know there are only 1600 pandas left in the world?

It Takes Two: Interview your race partner (ask at least 5 questions) and create a layout (with a photo) based on that interview. The layout must contain supplies from two designers—no more, no less, and the color scheme must consist mainly of two colors.
