I have had a great time looking at all the amazing entries for your contest, Ro! I was also surprised at the amount of entries and must say that I don't envy you the job of selection.

Do take care of yourself and I hope that you're feeling better very soon. :-)

Oh, dear -- I do hope you are feeling better and better..
I am so sorry to hear about your accident. :(

I have tried and tried -- I'm new at this, but I just can't get the photo to save on my MAC as anything but a web archive.
So, it won't open in Photoshop or save as a JPEG for me to use.
I know I wouldn't win because I"m new at this, but I did want to participate and add my best wishes, but I just can't seem to get it to work....
So, I guess I can't play -- sorry about that. :)

But, I sure do hope you're back to feeling fine sooner than soon!
Best wishes! ;)

It's August. It's Friday. What do you say we have a little fun?

On July 18th, I smashed up my cute, little, yellow Mini Cooper while backing out of the driveway. The car is almost fixed now, but I won't be repaired for some time. (I have a lingering concussion.)

After a couple of weeks of sitting around the house, I'm getting pretty bored and wish I could do something strange and unusual this weekend. But since I have to stay fairly quiet, I'm in a jam.

This morning, I started to think about my problem again. How could I have fun without making my concussion worse?

I thought and thought and thought and thought about it. And then - after I had thought some more - I got an idea: "Why don't I start game on the Scrap Girls messageboard", I thought, "and let people do something strange and unusual to me?"

We're going to have FOUR (4) winners this time. All of the four winners will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Everyone who plays will receive a $2.00 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

1. Random drawing winner from all entries
2. Most original
3. Funniest
4. Best overall

Here are the rules:

1. Enter before midnight, Monday, August 9th (Mountain Daylight Time)

2. One entry per person.


PHOTO TO USE FOR GAME



3. Download the photo of the nutty person (me) from this post.

A.Double-click on it to bring up the full-size image. It is huge and will cover your window.
B. Right-click on the large image and choose Save-As (Firefox), Save Picture As (IE), or Save Image As (Chrome). (If you double-click on the thumbnail, you'll download the thumbnail. So make sure you bring up the large image first.)
C. Save it to your computer.
D. Hit your browser's back button to return to this post.)

4. Do something strange and unusual to the photo. (Scrap it, alter it, paste it, fry it, boil it, float it, burn it, drive it, fly it, drop it, eat it...) The only limit is your imagination. (Keep the results G-rated - appropriate for all audiences.)

5. Post your entry as a comment to this topic.You may post a photo, a layout, a scan, or a YouTube video you made of your unusual fun or strangeness. Here's how:



Make sure you are using the Add a Reply option.

---------

To attach photos or layouts to your comment:

- Size the photo or layout no larger than 600 pix wide by 72 dpi.



- Using the Attachments dialogue below, browse to the image location on your computer.
- Hit the Attach This File button. When it is uploaded, you'll see it listed in the Attachments dialogue.


- Click on the Add to Post link, located at the far-right side of the image.

To attach YouTube video you made in your comment:
- Upload your video to YouTube.



- Copy the video's PAGE LINK (found at the top of the browser).



- Click on the Insert Media icon on the far-right side of the posting options. (It's the little icon that looks like three tiny photos with frames are stacked on top of each other - blue, pink, and green). If you hover over the icon it says, "Insert Media".)
- A little dialogue will appear. Insert the page link of your YouTube video. Then click on the Insert Media button.





Winners will be announced in the forum on Tuesday, August 10th. Of course, we'll send out the prizes for everyone via email so make sure your forum account's email address is correct!

Thanks for the fun! Instead of cropping in Ro's photo I printed it out and took her for a little daily adventure in our lives here.



This one really had me LOL. I love the playtime picture with Ro playing peek a boo around the couch with baby hahahaha. And braving the teen driver. Hilarious!

Thanks SO MUCH to Ang for so kindly posting my layout for me.
She turned my sad tale and frustration (below) to feeling MUCH better!

Well, I am very sad to say -- I spent a while working on a layout, but there is absolutely NO attach button on my browser.
I see that other people have had the same problem so I know it's just not me.
I have read through all the posts and followed the tips and help given and carefully looked at all the illustrations, but alas -- I have no way to add my creation to this post :(
Right now it is almost midnight ET -- way past my bedtime and way past frustration for me.

I wish you well and a speedy recovery, Ro. Sure wish I could participate in the game!
But I am ready to scream at this point and way too tired to fruitlessly keep trying :(

Right now MY head feels muddled and I'm so sorry I can't put my pic up.

Amber, what a HOOT! The "Twilight Zone" is so great. I'm assuming the guy's voice is your husband; his tone and pacing are perfect! Love it.
