The Template MIS with a Twist (to participate in the TWIST just comment in this thread before the MIS starts and then complete the MIS, easy peasy!) Because the template is your choice, the only way I will know if you participated is if you link your layout in this thread. To qualify, post your layout to the gallery or hosting site of your choice* and then paste the image and link here by 7:00 am ET tomorrow to qualify for the drawing and by 7:00 pm ET tomorrow to qualify for the free template. You can make your layout yours; add items and design as you like, as long as, you follow the instructions below. 1. One photo. 2. No large/main title (if you have a title it should be understated). 3. White/very light neutral background. 4. A stack of three or more patterned papers. 5. Stitches. 6. 5 or more rows of journaling, with at least 25 words total. The Twist For those that comment in this thread before the start of the challenge (posts 2-23), you can delete one instruction of your choice. *Posting Notice: To upload your layout into the TLP gallery it must follow TLP gallery posting requirements. The sample layout follows the instructions - if it has it that means you can have it! What is Liz's MIS: Liz's Template Make It Snappy (even months of the year) and Make It Slowly (odd months of the year) are a twist on the favorite speed scrap challenge. You can use any Liz template that you own and we make it even easier, because you pick the template after seeing ALL the instructions. Everyone that completes a qualifying layout and posts in this thread within 24 hours of the start of the challenge will receive a new, never released template for free. Complete you layout within the time limit (75 minutes for Make It Snappy, 12 hours for Make It Slowly) and you may win a $10 coupon to Liz's store!!! Don't own a Liz template yet? Well its easy, you can pick up some Liz templates for free!! Look for freebies in Liz's Facebook Group [link] or Liz's Blog [link]. The MIS will be hosted in this thread. Participation Prize Sample Layout by Greenmother Here are some additional details: The Twist can be many things: extra time, ability to delete/change an instruction, etc. I will post the instructions at the top of the thread and at the end of thread at the start of the MIS. For the first part of a Make It Slowly, you will have until 7:00 am ET the next day (12 hours) to complete the layout using the instructions (quantity will vary) plus the Twist (to get the Twist just comment in this thread before the start of the challenge; unless specified the comment can be anything - "Hi!" works). All those that complete a qualifying layout meeting challenge requirements and posted in this thread by 7:00 am ET next day (12 hours) will qualify; one layout from the qualifying layouts will win $10 to Liz's store. For the second part, same instructions but you will have 24 hrs to complete the layout and post in this thread. All participants that complete a qualifying layout meeting challenge requirements in the first or second half, will receive the free template. If you are new to posting layouts at TLP or linking images in threads, please give yourself extra time to do so.
