The Times they are a Changing...

The Times are changing.... No, I'm not talking economic or technology development, lol, I'm talking about our weekly slow Speed Scrap Time at Gotta Pixel!

It works much better for Connie to host the speed scrap/ chat at
8pm EST... (not 9 pm as before).

If you've never been to a speed scrap before, these are the ones you HAVE to try first!

1. They are tons of fun!
2. Most of us chat during the hour of the speed scrap and work on our layouts later. (All the steps are posted in the forum for our later reference. We will give you the link if you can't find it.)
3. If you're shy and only want to "listen" at first...:) that's are still more than welcome. Nothing is required of you, more than what you're prepared to give!

Why? Because they are SLOW, speed scraps. You don't have to have your layouts completed until the next day...usually at 4 pm EST!!! So lots of time to make up your layouts. Definitely NO pressure!

What .....happens is that Connie provides a step by step instruction on what is required on your layout every 10 minutes. So one step will be the number of papers to use as a background, another will be the number of photos and sometimes where to place them on the page....she continues with 5 or 6 other steps as you slowly add elements/title etc until you have a completed page!

It's that easy! If you post your layout in the Gotta Pixel gallery after you are finished, you get a sweet little surprise the next day! (Yeah!)

So WHO should be there? YOU!!!
HOW do I get to these Speed Scrap Chats?

First, go to the Gotta Pixel forum.

At the top of the page, there is a CHAT link! (between Newsletter and Help).
Here is the CHAT LINK if you wish.

Click on Chat, and it asks you for your username - that's your name at Gotta Pixel.
Click on Log In... and you'll be there!

If you want to add into the conversation at any time, just type in your thoughts at the bottom of the screen in the blue area, and hit enter. It's that easy!

So hope to meet you: Every Friday, at Gotta Pixel @ 8 PM ET!

and just for a little inspiration a couple of the fantastic layouts that were created at the last speed scrap!!... (an odd number of photos were required)
