As someone who has never done a Speed Scrap here at GS.. what exactly happens? Are there rules, guidelines, etc.? I want to partake, but that's nap time so I might be late to the party, and I also have no idea what to expect!

Be ready for a fun ride! (I'm assuming that you've participated in other SS's, though, right?) Today is a SPECIAL SS- the "We All Host" one. So I will be giving out times for instructions! Even I don't know how it will turn out! I did it once a long time ago before I found GS- and I've been hooked on this kind of SS since!

I 'd sure like to at least upload my LO, but apparently nothing wants to work right for me right now. It's been done for a while now and it won't upload. Far too frustrated that I'm throwing my hands up in the air and walking away from the computer for a while. Don't get it. Hopefully will get it sorted before the time allotted.

Everyone else's is looking so great!

Edit:
Here is my LO, not totally in love with it, but I think that's because it gave me too much trouble. Time for a nap says I.

I know the site has been super slow for me as well - sorry you are having troubles

Have you tried just attaching it to a post (and not UL to the gallery - you can come back and do that later?)

Or what about an image hosting site - like photobucket - unitl you're able to UL to the gallery?! Good luck!

1- :00- lmsandt: 3 papers lined in even sections- either horizontal or vertical - orange, grey & paper striped
2- :10- Mandalue: pick out 2-3 photos and make 1 photo larger than the others - I used two photos - well the same one, twice
3- :20- Sarah: Add at least 3 elements, including one frame - string, pencil, grey star, green star, banner & circle frame
4- :30- Scrapolina: Add a journaling tag or piece and do some journaling on it ...In other words you can journal directly onto your background page. - I used a lot of journal strips - hope that counts :)
5- :40- Sniksnak: use splatters, spils or confetti somewhere on your page - used two splatter/spill thingies behind the photos - one is hard to see on the grey, but its there.
6- :50- Wendella247- Add a title anywhere on your page. - my title is in the lower right
7- 1:00- photom: Make sure to add your shadows. Put a date tag on it and date it! Add some stitching and make at least 1 of your photos b/w or sepia. Make sure to leave 1 color!

OK- I got ya all up to this point! I couldn't believe how many showed up, and how many others snuck in too! Plus, we that were in the chat got the privilege of Ginger's company! Wowsers! So, I know a few of you had kids at home because of snow day, but what made it so you could come this time? So glad it went SO well!

Amy- I'm glad you were able to make it! Trina- I'm not THAT picky! If you posted it with only 1 picture, 1 paper and no elements- I probably would have still counted it!
