Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover!

Well here it is - the BIG announcement that you have been waiting for!!!

Welcome to my 1st ever scrapbooking challenge! I am hoping that this challenge will inspire you to “Think outside of the box” and help you “FOCUS” (ah my word for the year) on actually completing a layout (ok – its really to help me focus and complete a layout but hey you can win prizes!!! LOL) I am calling this challenge – Don’t judge a book by its cover!

In this challenge you will complete a layout in which when one first reads the title and looks at the overall layout they would assume that the layout is about one thing…. But when reading the journaling they will actually realize that the layout is about something completely different.

The Deadline for submitting your completed layout will be March 3rd at Noon Eastern Time. You will submit a photo of your layout by emailing a photo of it to: lori_mcdnld@yahoo.com

Along with your photo please provide the text of your journaling in case it is not easy to read it in the photo.

Layout can be one or two pages long…

And that’s it! Yep – there is no requirements about using cutting files. No requirements to own a cutter, nothing like that! I really wanted to make this challenge opened to ALL Scrapbookers!!!

So what are the prizes…

1st Place will receive receive THREE (3) of my cutter files of your choice (or if you do not own a cutter you will pick THREE (3) of my files and I will cut the titles for you and send you the completed titles) AND ONE (1) Beloved Keepsakes Photo Bracelet custom made from the photos that you will provide!!! (Over 40 crystal color choices and you will get to choose! See example below)


2nd Place will receive TWO (2) of my cutter files or once again if you do not have a cutter you will pick TWO (2) of my files and I will cut the titles for you and send you the completed titles.

3rd Place will also receive TWO (2) of my cutter files or once again if you do not have a cutter you will pick TWO (2) of my files and I will cut the titles for you and send you the completed titles.

Additionally - all entries will be placed in a drawing - one lucky person will win a Beloved Keepsakes custom made photo ribbon pin made from one of your favorite photos!! (Pins come with a yellow, pink or white ribbons - you get to choose!! See example below.)


Should you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me at: lori_mcdnld@yahoo.com

I along with you will be completing a layout following the above requirements…. Be watching for it to be posted soon!

Ok – so what are you waiting for? Time is ticking – get busy scrapping!

Until Next Time!

Cya~
