    Digital scrapbooking is all about remembering something. Anything.
    It doesn't require a lot. It just requires a creative eye, and a thought.
    That's it!

    So, this speed scrap? Turn up the music, listen to your heart, and go with it!

    Step 1: While you don't always have to have a picture, most layouts do contain at least one.
    So, choose at least one.

    Step 2: Even if you're doing an amazing hybrid project, you need some papers.
    Or a flood fill tool. Right?
    So, choose Your Background Paper

    Step 3: Elements. Layouts are made by elements. {Hush! Yes, I know it can be paper layers, we'll get to that!}
    So, choose at least four different TYPES of elements.
    Choose 3 of the SAME element, as well (of any of the four you chose).
    So, you chose a ribbon, a button, a flair, and a flower. Choose ONE of those, and have THREE of them.
    Cluster however you desire.

    Step 4: Remember those paper layers that was mentioned? Time to play with those!
    Choose at least FOUR papers.
    Cut one into a circle.
    Cut one into a square.
    Cut one into a TRIANGLE.
    Cut one into a non-regular shape. Like a foot. Or a leaf. Or something like that.
    Add them to your layout, over and under your photo(s).

    Step 5: Oh, you thought you were done? Hee hee, not quite just yet.
    Journaling makes a BIG difference in a layout, but we're not there.
    Hee hee. Add a title. At least two words. At least one ALPHA and one FONT.
    Split the title along the top and the bottom.

    Step 6: That journaling thing. It's back to annoy you now.
    A picture can tell a story, but sometimes, you choose a picture that you know the story to, but no one else does.
    Tell that story. We want to hear it (well, read it :P).

    Step 7: Your layout might look a little flat. Wanna know why? You might have forgotten those things called shadows.
    They're very important in digital scrapbooking. It's what gives the layout dimension and depth!
    Make sure you use them!

    Finished Example:

    Kit: How I Feel, from the DSD Grab Bag by Valerie Olstrom

    Pssstttt.... Thank you Sarah!! Your the Best!! (she wrote this ss for me and made the example LO)

    Post your LO in the Speed Scrap gallery by 3:00 pacific/ 6:00 EST and I will PM your Prize! xoxo

    the link it right up there in black font between "settings" and and "My profile"

    The link in the header is actually gone.. I bet you need a hard refresh (restart your computer) to see the updated header

    hmm. I'm on firefox. Sometime it needs an update, When you get a chance make sure yout Firefox is up to date- then shut down your computer and once it starts back up try again.

    something is wrong with the chat? Is 7 the last instruction? Should I wrap it up and upload to gallery?
