This week's Monday Challenge is a Scrap10 Challenge - "How did you Find ScrapGirls?"   

Ten years ago today Scrap Girls first began.  Some of you have been with us all along while others are newbies.  To celebrate this milestone in digi-history your challenge is to create a page about how you found Scrap Girls.   

Please create your layout using this theme and when you are finished post it in the Scrap10 Gallery (labeled Monday Scrap10 Challenge 10/20) for all of us to share.    :)     

Remember your layout must be uploaded by 11:59pm ET on Monday Oct 20th to be eligible for the daily challenge prize.  The winner will be posted here in this thread tomorrow.

Monday Challenge: October 13, 2014

13 October 2014 - 04:56 AM

Happy Monday!     Continuing along the "Real Life" theme and anticipating ScrapGIrls' upcoming Birthday celebration, I started thinking of gifts and giving.  I remembered many of the special and meaningful gifts I've received and some that I've given.    And, it sounded like a challenge.  :)

So, today your challenge is to scrap, "The Best Gift I Ever Unwrapped".    

Please note, there are many gifts that have no wrapping.  Last week we scrapped some wonderful "Random Acts of Kindness".   But, this week I challenge you to scrap an actual physical gift that can be unwrapped.  It can be either one you've given or received….  Or, both!   :)

 

When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Monday Challenge Gallery

for all of us to share.   I can't wait to see what you create!   :)

Here's my layout:

Monday Challenge: October 5, 2014

06 October 2014 - 04:33 AM

Happy Monday!       :daisy:     
For October, I thought we'd scrap "Real Life" as a theme.   This week's challenge idea came to me when I saw a local High School's marquee which read:
           "Acts of kindness
do not always have to be random".    
 
Wikipedia says a random act of kindness is "a selfless act to assist or cheer up someone else and can be spontaneous or planned".   The phrase may have been coined by Anne Herbert who says she wrote "Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty" on a place mat at a Sausalito restaurant in the early 1980's.  Since then sharing "random acts of kindness" has become an organized call to action in the name of kindness and an attempt to brighten another person's day by doing something thoughtful and caring.   Kindness is a way of showing others they count and that even in the face of hostility and selfishness, you are making a stand for kindness...
 
So, today I challenge you to scrap an act of kindness - random or planned, given or received.    When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Monday Challenge Gallery
for all of us to share.   I can't wait to see what you create!   :)
