Have you heard????

Hello, All you scrappers out there! The designers of Sam & Hailey Designs, I Scrap Designs, and Beloved Keepsakes (that's Jan, Ileana, and ME if you don't know) have a fun challenge for you! We all know that gas prices are through the roof. Just the thought of going on a road trip has our bank accounts crying! So, why not just stay home and take a little journey through time by scrapbooking! Just think of the money you'll save! And, you could end up a little richer by participating!

The Grand Prize winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the Paperthreads Store! Other Prizes will be announced a little later on. Our theme for this challenge is "Travel Through Time!" We've got a lot of ideas for this one!

The main idea is to create a "timeline" of sorts chronicling a series of events. Here are some ideas to get you started:

* Create a timeline of your life.

* Scrap the major events of your marriage.

* Create a timeline of the life of a loved one who has passed on.

* Get photos of your child's first day of school for the past 5 years and journal about the changes in him/her over the course of time.

* Pick an annual event like a family reunion, anniversary, or birthday and scrap the past several years with a short summary of each event.

* Create a timeline of the births of each of your children.

* If you've built a new house, scrap the process from ground breaking to moving in.

* Scrap a major project that you are proud of that you have pictures of the different stages in progress.

Now those are just some ideas, you can use one of those or make your own!

Here are the rules:
~ You must use at least one of our (Jan's, Ileana's or Lori's) files to make your project.

~ The project must be a two-page scrapbook layout of at least 8x8 in size or a multi-page mini-book of any size.

~ The project must follow the theme as outlined - "Travel Through Time" by chronicling a series of events

~ The project must be posted in the Paperthreads Gallery by midnight US Eastern time on Monday, 7/28.

Voting will be conducted by poll in the Paperthreads Fourm from Tuesday 7/29-Thursday-7/31 with the winner announced on Friday 8/1.

For signing up to participate in this challenge, you will receive a free file from each of the hosting designers! You can use these for your challenge submissions, or choose something else from the participating designer's files available in the Paperthreads Store. The rule is you have to use at east one file from one of the designers, there's no rule about which one you have to use.

Here are the files you will receive for participating: From Sam & Hailey Designs, "Scrapbook Timeline"

From I Scrap Designs, "Remember When Gas Cost..."

From Beloved Keepsakes, "Vroom, Vroom"
In order to receive the free files, you'll need to sign up on this thread at Paperthreads saying that you will be participating in the challenge!

So what are you doing - GO SIGN UP!!!!

Until Next Time!
