Happy Scrapbook Day

In honor of National Scrapbook Day, Pages in Time is hosting an online mini-crop complete with challenges, games, chat, and prizes. Each Design Team member will post a challenge throughout the day today. You have until Monday, May 4th midnight EST to complete the challenges. Each designer is giving away a RAK, and the participant who earns the most points for completing challenges and playing games will win a grand prize.

For my challenge, I would like you to scraplift yourself. Choose one of your favorite layouts and base a new layout on it. To be eligible for my RAK (Pink Paislee alphabet stickers and petals and Spare Parts antique brads), post your original and new layouts on my thread at Pages in Time and in the gallery. I will post the winner on Tuesday, May 5th.

Here's my layout, called "Look Out World." It's based on a layout that I completed back in November 2008, called "Keep Your Face to the Sun." I love the linear lines and the multiple photos. For my scraplift, I flipped the sketch and used fewer embellishments. [Seriuosly, Basic Grey Lime Rickey doesn't need much embellishing!] It was so much fun to scraplift myself.

Hope you'll give it a try too!

And, while you're blog surfing today, go check me out at Inspiration Craft Blogs. I'm their featured crafter today. Extra special since it's National Scrapbook Day!Danielle Wycough asked me if she could showcase my work. And, of course, I said yes. Their blog is chock full of inspiring designers. Go follow along, and who knows, maybe they'll feature you next!

Happy Scrappin',
