ok so I was thinking today it was the last day of LOAD. This is the first time every that I've done 31 LO's (actually pluss because there are 2 other page kits that I did) {other side note, hubby just brought me 3 wood stamps that were under the bed :p}

So while I was sweeping the chili, crackers and peaches off the floor at work I thought of a new challenge :D now don't worry this isn't daily! Just 29* altered items by the last day of February! Each altered item must be emblished 3 to 4 times. Enteries loaded by Mountain Time Midnight Feb 29th.

First the * what counts!
Large Items eg: Compbooks, wood letters, food cans, etc. will count as one altered item. LIMIT 5 (sorry 29 wood letters or whatever would be kinda dull for ya after a while and this isn't good for me either since I have 6 to do :p )

Small (can fit in your hand) paper clips (even the jumbo ones), pens, the paper bag things someone made for V-day goodies) I'm going to say right now that 5 of those count as 1 item and limit of 2 groups. So if you made 10 paper clips that'd be all of paper clips but you could make 10 jumbo, 10 pens

Altered Albums: altoid tins, coffee filter, paper bag count as 1 altered item.

That clear as mud?

Post each thing to Gallery under altered item. Please put LEAP in title

I'm making a sign up thread. Just post if you're joining. That way I can click on your name and see everyone's album at the end of the month instead of hunting down a mondo Thread.

There will be a thread so you can share your project as well but please load to gallery and use the BB feature! (trying to help interest in the gallery here!)

Random Prize: TBA (sry I get paid tomorrow and then I'll go hunting :D )

Post any questions you have here.

Can you explain this one a little better :)?

If you do altered tins, does each one count as one on it's own or are you only allowed one tin for the month?

This sounds like an interesting challenge. I could alter 5 of any one item correct, unless it's tiny, like a paper clip, then 5 of them would be counted as 1 item???

Ok this does sound like fun, but not sure I understand your count Zig?

ziggyeor

ok I'll try to get some pics of what I mean. Judith got it 5 of any one item, unless it's tiny then 5 of them is one item :D

an altered tin I put in the album catagory, each is 1 and you can make up to 5 :)

Okay I'll participate, although I know I won't make the numbers since my stuff is all over lol, and there are somethings I won't want to make several of. Like the little treat thingys I did 30 of them last year for son's V-day at school if I do them this year it will be one for each of my kids and one for my DH so that's only 3 :) But I'll do what I can and post. This will be a challenge for me to get my Gallery set up.

things that are small
this counts as 1 http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u25/ziggyeor/DSCF0017.jpg Your limit is 2 groups or 10.

this you have to do 5 of so if you procrastinated on altered name and it has 5 letters go you!http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u25/ziggyeor/DSCF0023-1.jpg

the puzzle piece fits in my hand so you have to do 5. so if you're in the puzzle swap one puzzle counts as 2 groups and your limit for puzzle piece making! http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u25/ziggyeor/DSCF0022.jpg

This since I didn't make the puzzle is 1 altered canvas I painted, stickled and added boas and masks (3-4 embleshes) However if you made the puzzle yourself it would count as 3!

ok now I took this as one group of small the card fits in my hand http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u25/ziggyeor/DSCF0007-1.jpg

but the box does too but I don't think anyone has 5 card boxes like this sitting around at home (well I have 3 :p) Should this be 1? Maybe make an album out of it I dunno?

I'm in and I'll let you do the keeping track for me :) I might need some help with the Gallery thing. :)

ok this sounds like fun. i wanted to do the load and only did 6 pages for the 31days. i would really like to do this....Maybe it would get me to use some of the stuff i have around the house. now is it per day or just when you get in the zone do as many as you can as long as you hit your 29 number of altered goodies by the end of the month?

Ok I will say I am in but dont hold me too it.

Janice:D

ziggyeor
02-01-2008, 08:06 PM
no NOT per day (faint) I'm not that good ;) Just get in the zone and hit 29 by the end of the month ;)

Found this cute idea :D

OK, I'm in. Since I have some things to do I might as well play. Now to see if I can learn how to upload to the gallery. We're doing 29, correct?? One for each day of the month. Now got to go sign up.

ziggyeor
02-01-2008, 10:07 PM
yup uploading to gallery isn't tooo hard. Well maybe it's just me :) Just click on gallery and the boxes with the blue words find UPLOAD and then it takes you to Your Stats and under that Image Options. Click on browse and search where you saved your LO. Put in Title (remember to include LEAP please) put in a description, choose alter catagory from pull down menue, you don't have to do key words if you don't want to. Then hit submit!

Your file will upload (um given size I guess but I haven't had any problems yet) and it gets sent to the appropriate catagory.

When you're in gallery and you click on catagory Altered Items it takes you to an alphabetic list so you can find the members gallery you want to view. So if you click on Aristoscrap you can see her totally cool Film Noir album!

This is what's cool about the gallery to me rather than you post on the board (well still do that) at the end of the month I can just click on your name and see just the altered items that you did and not have to hunt everything down in the thread where it can get trailed off the page. :D

Okay, I'll give it a try too. Like Lori, you will have to do my counting for me, lol! I won't guarantee that I'll be able to make the entire 29, but this will be fun. I'm off to sign up!

This isn't the sign up? Where do we sign up? Cristal how do you get on the mailing list for those things? I want some to play with!

ziggyeor
02-02-2008, 12:03 PM
Very cute Cristal! It's great that you were asked to make them!

Lori go back to my first post I've linked to the sign up thread and where you can post your things after they're in the gallery.

Cristal did you upload yours to the gallery too? It will make it easier for me at the end of the month because I can click your name in the altered catagory and see all the projects you did :D

Hahaha! This thread is cracking me up! What mailing list are you referring to and what are 'those things' that you can sign up on a mailing list for?

ziggyeor
02-02-2008, 03:38 PM
the mailing list for getting Cristal to make us some altered CD's :D

Ziggy

Atty
02-02-2008, 07:59 PM
Very nice Cristal, I have one I did will post later, also want to try one like yours.
I'm getting ready to take some pic. of my projects from today so I can get them posted.

Atty
02-02-2008, 08:40 PM
ok here's my cheese jar altered. The scan does not do the project justice it really is cute.
Not sure what I'll do with it, any suggestions?? It's the plastic jar that the shredded cheese comes in for italian food.

Atty
02-02-2008, 08:45 PM
yeah Zig that's what I thought I would do with it, it has those holes in it so you could also shake the candy out if it were small enough.

02-02-2008, 09:48 PM
Mine is always in the gallery, I just use the gallery to post the picture.
I am not on a mailing list BUT I am a burning DVD and CD junky and I buy by the 100 so about 5 to 8 are dead in every batch. I used to toss them now I save them.

Lori, do you need CDs to alter? I have a source and will mail you some if you need them.

02-03-2008, 01:15 AM
Oh they both look great!!!!!!! I have never done altered items, I have so much to learn!

02-05-2008, 10:31 PM
Judith, thanks for the offer, let me do a bit more looking before you spend postage. After I got home and boo hooed to you all that I couldn't find them it occurred to me that maybe they had them but in electronics. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I'm getting confused with two or three places to look for the Leap stuff.

ziggyeor
02-05-2008, 11:08 PM
sorry about that lori, I was thinking I was making it easier if we had a place for projects, and a place for talk but we seem to go back and forth :p LOL
