Scrap Whispers!

Click here --> Scrap Whispers
Do you remember that game Chinese Whispers that we played as kids? We all sat in a circle and the first person whispered something to the next person, who whispered what they heard to the next and so on. And what came back to the first person was wildly different from the original.

Well this is the same principle except using scrap-booking pages. The first person creates a page or lay-out (LO) and e-mails a photo of it to the next person. That person takes elements that they like from it and creates their own LO for the next person to scrap-lift. All the LOs are kept secret until the Big Reveal when the last person has finished. Georgina thought of it a couple of years ago, and it was so popular that she created her own network and Scrap Whispers was born.

This is the 5th round, and my first time in the game. There are 7 teams, 42 people playing!

Yesterday my team leader sent me her page to scrap-lift, and... well let's just say that I didn't do much housework. There was such a big build-up for this - signing up for the game then waiting for it to kick off, then having a week to complete my part in it. I had it done by tea-time, with a mild sense of anti-climax that there wasn't more to it! But not for long, because now we have to wait for the Big Reveal which will be mid-May.

I can't show you my LO. You'll have to wait along with me!

I know...it took me forever to think of just the right thing for Scrapwhispers. I didn't want to let anyone down.
