Weekend Wildcard Challenge 2/18/17

18 February 2017 - 08:26 AM

I loved your Fast and Furious layouts earlier this month.  You rocked the assignment, even though I heard some of you groan!  This week's challenge is very similar.  I think it is so important to remember the goal is to document the lives of those we love.  Sometimes I think that gets lost because we don't have the time we feel necessary to spend hours scrapping.

Today I want you to create a quick and easy layout using products from our Fast & Easy category.  This week though, I want you to change the page up a bit.  Alter the original in some way.  Rotate the entire layout.  Flip the layout.  Add extra photos or take away a photo.  Add additional embellishments.  If you are working with .psd files, it is easy to change out a background paper or two.  Use your imagination, but keep it quick!!!

(You can use Quick pages, Easy pages, JIF kits, Zoom pages.)  

I can't wait to see your  changed-up fast and furious layouts.  Post your finished layouts in the
Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

February Recipe Swap 2017

17 February 2017 - 11:18 AM

Ladies-please forgive me for being so late in posting!  I've been fighting this illness and have tired to lay low to help healing.  Not that it seems to be helping...however, yesterday I took the WHOLE day off.  I did go to town to the bank an post office, and cooked dinner.  Other than that, I was on the couch resting and reading.  I'm heading out soon for some much needed errands as well as a medical test.  Nothing serious...I'm sure it will just confirm nothing.  (which is good and bad!)


When I posted the swap last month we were waiting on an ice storm.  Today it's supposed to be 70.  Gotta love Missouri weather!


One thing that I have been craving during these months is soup.  This month's recipe theme is SOUP!  Do you have a favorite home remedy soup?  (Hello Chicken Noodle??)  I love making soup.  Big batches!!

  • After I have compiled the recipes, you will receive a link to download the recipe cards from all our participants. You must send in a card to get the link!

Weekend Wildcard Challenge 2/4/17

04 February 2017 - 09:02 AM

Hello February!!!  I'm not sure where January went, it flew right by me like I was standing still!  (I'm afraid I really WAS standing still....)

So it's fitting that the first Weekend Wildcard Challenge is Fast and Furious.  We have so many amazing products available to us that it can be overwhelming and slow us down.  Today I want you to create a quick and easy layout using products from our 
Fast & Easy category.  You can use Quick pages, Easy pages, JIF kits, Zoom pages.  My favorite easy pages are the ones that come with the monthly ScrapGirls clubs.  I can always grab a few embellishments (if necessary) that coordinate beautifully.


I can't wait to see your fast and furious layouts.  Post your finished layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery and post a link back in this thread.
