2015-03-24 Tuesday Challenge

24 March 2015 - 06:46 AM

And...drumroll, please...it's OFFICIALLY Spring! We've waited so long to see all those inches of snow melt and dreamed often about the beautiful sun and flowers. Of course, if you're like me, you had a momentary memory lapse. It turns out that before the beauty there's mud, lots and lots of mud! So, this week, as we wait for the ground to dry out and the flowers to bloom, let's do a layout about Spring Cleaning. It could be either literal - documenting something you've cleaned or need to clear (you can include computer stuff too, like cleaning out your email archives). Or it can be more figurative like how you feel when you are clean or your house is clean.


When you're finished, be sure to post your LO in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery.

2015-03-10 Tuesday Challenge

Rules! Rules! Rules! Today's challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to Do Something Different! The theme for this week is Out of Bounds (making part of the picture come out of the frame), so make a layout using this technique. If you need some tips, we have a tutorial on the blog that shows how to do this. http://scrapgirls.co...oshop-elements/

2015-02-23 Monday Random Challenge

23 February 2015 - 11:39 AM

Good Monday Morning to you! It's CRAZY cold again here in MI. I have a house full of kids and DH because schools are closed again! DS#4 pointed out that, with scheduled days off, the two older boys have had 10 days in a row with no school and the two younger boys have had 5 days. Spring where are you!?!?!?!


Anyway, onto the challenge for today.


Metamorphosis is our topic this week.


When I think about metamorphosis, I think about the photos in my high school biology class of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

Your challenge is to use a series of photos (at least 3) to document a change. It could be a child growing up; the change in fashion from your grandmother to your daughter; or the process as you remodel a room.


Here's a couple of examples:

Brothers Best Friends--Jordan and Joshua

2013-08 Jackson (This one uses the same photo in three different positions.)



Be sure to share your layout with us in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.


I'll be back later with mine. :)

"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

--Forrest Gump


Let's play a box of chocolates game. I'm afraid that my kids ate all of the chocolates :embarrassed003: , but they left behind the tasks. You may use each task as an individual challenge, or--for the ultimate challenge--complete multiple tasks on the same layout (if you dare!). When posting your layout be sure to indicate the tasks that you used. Share your layout with us in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.
