Speed Scrap

A "SS" or Speed Scrap is a ton of fun. Here is how it works. Everyone gets together on a forum online. The host gives a set of instructions, such as "pick out three related pictures," every 10 minutes up to 7 sets of instructions. Then you get the remaining 50 minutes to wrap up your scrap page and post it to the gallery and forum. This is a total of two hours to complete an entire layout. And amazingly, with the pressure of the competition (and usuallly some small reward), you get it done!

As stated in my last post, I participated in a speed scrap last night at, but there are plenty of websites that host them on a regular basis.

I spent some time retouching my layout this morning, getting the shadows just right, etc., and am providing you a look at the speed scrap version and the retouched version below.
