My Challenge #2 Layout

Here is my layout for the second challenge. Don't mind the same theme as the first challenge because it's another set of pages for my camping trip :) I'm trying to get my summer pics scrapbooked! Hope you get a chance to try this challenge! I'll post another tomorrow...

Challenge #2

Here is our new challenge for the week.  I know alot of you are pretty busy so hopefully you'll be able to relax and take some time for yourself and try this challenge.  Have a great week!

This is the layout that I created based on Challenge #1. I changed things up on the second page by using 3 photos instead of 4. I used a cool new program for the Cricut called "Sure Cuts A Lot" which allows you to cut the fonts and shapes on your computer without using cartridges. Very cool because you can download literally hundreds of free fonts. It was about $80 and worth every penny. I used the negative part of the cut for the title by placing it over the Cocoa cardstock. The contrast makes it stand out perfectly. (The actual tree that I cut from the title is on the 2nd page)

I know that one of you has told me you went ahead and tried the first challenge. Can't wait to see what you came up with. Hopefully more of you will be able to give one of these a try. I'll be posting Challenge #2 tomorrow.

Challenge #1

Ok, Here is your first challenge...
1.  Let's have FUN and get MORE scrapbooking done!
2.  You are free to play around with the layout, as long as we can identify it as the same layouts.  For example, change the papers, photo sizes, orientation, rotation of the pages, etc.
3.  Come on and jump in!  Don't worry if you don't have photos on your layout, or if it's past the week posted.

I can't wait to see what all of you create!  I'll be posting my creation here shortly...

Please post your finished pages for all to see...either scan them or take a photo with your camera :)

Time to get things rolling...

Well now that the holidays are pretty much over, I might actually have time to sit down and get this blog rolling.  My intended purpose for my blog is to help my fellow scrapbooking friends and customers get more scrapbooking done.  Some of you need to stop become collectors - You Know Who You Are - and use those supplies and get scrapping.  

I'm going to be posting weekly challenges every Monday and I'm hoping you'll join in and post pictures of your layouts.

Stay tuned for Challenge #1 coming tomorrow...
