yes it me hosting again :eek:
this weeks challenge should having you having lots of fun with the cropping tool in Max!
Up Close & Personal
we all have photographs where it is a lovely photograph in its own right but we would love to also use only part of it, maybe a close up of a face, flower, gift etc ...well here's your chance to use both :D
i have attached an example of a page with a close up crop ;)
you will be using the CROP feature in Max! for this challenge, for those who do not yet know how to use the crop tool there are instructions at the bottom of this page
1) using just ONE photograph and a cropped section of the SAME photograph scrap a page
2) your page may have any theme you like and you may use any kits or embellishments, papers etc you like but please remember to credit
3) all pages to be uploaded to the gallery and the link or image posted to this thread
4) All pages to be uploaded by Sunday 1st March
How to use crop in Max!
1) open the photograph you wish to use
2) go to EFFECTS in the top menu bar
3) go to CROP in the drop down menu
4) using the white squares on the guide mark out the area you wish to show
5) click ok ...and you are done :D
Great, great photo by the way........... also quite a good challenge...!!!

I absolutely love cropping. It so helps get rid of all the unwanted parts of a photo. And just finding Melanies kit at the DSO color challenge, this was just a perfect challenge and a perfect kit.

My favorite subjects - Grandpa and Aaron. I had not thought of doing this photo with an up close crop but it was fun!

I am glad to see you hosting this week Fiona! You have been a little too quiet here lately, lol!
Great challenge idea. As soon as I get over being in the freezing cold on top of a mountain and then in a car for 7 hours on the way home listening to Harry Potter all seven hours (not that I don't adore Harry, but 7 hours is enough to make me use my own wand and break the tv), I will be joining this challenge!

Great challenge Fiona! And great layouts so far everyone and it is only Tuesday!
Here is mine. I used this picture a long time ago. It is Kari (My G Niece) when she was little with my hubby's snake. She was fascinated by it. Hubby doesn't have the snake anymore. It was in a park nature center last we knew.
The items were in the kit I gave for doing last weeks challenge. I altered the colors a little for the layout.

Ohhhh I love cropping! Heck I even picked it as part of me name....lol I'll be backkkkkkkkkkkkk.....
Great layouts everyone!!!!

This picture was a bonus today as I enjoyed the 40 degree temperature and took a walk in the park.
02-25-2009, 08:13 PM
wonderful pages everyone :D
02-26-2009, 05:15 AM
I love cropping. Sure wish I had some time to play. These pages are very clever indeed and so cute. It always amazes me the different things you can learn just by looking at the wonderful pages created by other scrappers.
02-26-2009, 07:23 AM
HI all, beautiful work everyone, here is mine.
02-26-2009, 11:18 AM
Everybody has done wonderful pages...Loved this challenge Fiona..here is mine...
This photo was taken last week after our snow storm..I let the dog out the following morning and saw all these icicles on my tree and bushes...it actually looked like a frozen waterfall...It was just beautiful...:D
02-27-2009, 05:41 PM
Here is my page for this week's challenge. This is my first challenge so I hope I've done it right. I'm enjoying seeing everyone's pages. Really helps see other layouts that I would never think of on my own.
OOPS - can't get my picture to show, so here is the link: http://www.scrapbookmax.com/forums/album.php?albumid=139&pictureid=697

wonderful pages everyone, love seeing all your talent :D
this the end of this weeks challenge, there will be no challenge next week as both The Groove challenge and The Designer Monthly Challenge both start to keep you busy ;)
if anyone would like to run a weekly challenge pm ...i have several slots free lol
attached is a little gift, its a pack of 7 Multiframes great for those bigger projects ;) i've attached both the smb & zip folder, enjoy
NB Multiframes are for personal use only
03-01-2009, 07:11 AM
Thank you for the frames . I can sure use them.
03-01-2009, 02:58 PM
Thanks Fiona for the frames and for putting them into a zip file. With all the crazy computer problems and people losing so much, I've made it a practice to save all the zips files for my backup. Also don't use my hard drive for the files anymore since I always scrap with the drag and drop method and keep my files under folders named to the nice sweet person that shared them with me.
This was also a great challenge as I'm always cropping since so often I want a square photo.
03-01-2009, 04:04 PM
Thanks Fiona! Great Challenge.
03-01-2009, 04:19 PM
Thanks Fiona for another great challenge and your generous gift:):)
03-01-2009, 04:22 PM
Excellent frames!!!! Thanks! Another TERRIFIC challenge!:)
Now bring on those leprechauns!!!:D
03-01-2009, 11:22 PM
Thanks Fiona for a great challenge and the frames.
03-02-2009, 03:39 AM
thank you for the frames....can never have too many especially multi frames
