1 april 2015 scrapbook challenge ...

This posting is no April Fool joke.  It is actually a tribute to a favourite challenge blog that I was a designer for a couple of years ago - Scrapbookers Anonymous - where the owners Theresa and Lea encouraged us to use up what was in our stash. (I know I always felt I had to showcase the latest in materials and techniques in order to be competitive in challenge blogs) Scrapbookers Anonymous has closed its doors, and I miss what they taught me - use it up - it's ALL good and creative !  

Unfortunately, many favourite challenge blogs have posted their last posts. I am looking for some good ones to share with you all on our challenge sites page.  Please do share with us here if you have any favourites :).

Anyway - here is what you are really waiting for :) - Our challenge for the month of April is to:

Use paper or embellishments you have had in your stash for a long time or you can scrap about something you have you have had for a long time. You can use one prompt or both - up to you!

You are always welcome to incorporate our challenges with any other challenge. It is so much fun to play along with several challenges, and to have traffic on your blog from many people from various challenges out there.

We welcome scrapbook pages of any size, and also entries that are not traditional scrapbooking -  art journalling, painting, cards, mixed media, off-the-page work.   However you like to create - we love to see your work! We always encourage you to scrap about yourself so that your family/friends will enjoy knowing more about you.

I will be asking one of the faves amongst the entries this month to guest design with us, and we will feature some of our faves in a posting on the blog. A random draw will be made to win a selection of die-cuts and hand-made flowers.

Here is some inspiration from our super freaking awesome design team:

So thrilled with the AWESOME layouts posted last month - hope we can peek at more this month!!!!
