This week’s challenge is to Scrapbook your scrapbooking!
Yep, you heard that right. We want you to create a layout or other paper crafting project that showcases some aspect of your scrapbooking hobby.
Chose at least two of the following for your project:
1. Journal about how you’ve achieved “better living through scrapbooking”.
2. Use at least 3 photos of your scrap space.
3. Use the title “I Scrap, Therefore…” (finish the statement in your journaling.)
4. Create a scrapbook layout using photos of your scrapbooks.
5. Have someone take a photo of you surrounded by your supplies, then use that photo as the main image on your page.

6. Create a mini-album “tour” of your scrap room.
7. Journal a list of your ten “can’t live without” scrapbooking tools/supplies

Here is the layout I created with my awesome Lucky Girl August Old School Kit

  5. Congrats Kim!!! Can't wait to see all the new stuff you will create!

  6. I knew when the posting went out at Midnight I was going to see your name and face. I am so happy for you and Brenda.
    I keep clicking and enlarging your pic so I could see your craft room.
    Great job with the layout and using the old school kit.
    Let's see and old, old ,old school memory.
    I enjoyed that I could have one day every month we could wear our own clothes, see I wore a uniform at my Catholic school every day...I was a real tom boy so I always wore pants so I could show the boys how fast I could run! Silly what we remember.
    Congratulations again sweetie!

  7. Congrats, Kim. Sure don't know how you do it all .. but you do, and it seems like your work is always amazing! They are lucky to have you!

  8. Congrats Kim - taking another one one you brave soul you! Looking forward to seeing even more of your lovely layouts! Now for an old, and I am serious when I saw old; school memory . . . Back when I was in junior high (middle school nowadays) I can remember the first day we were allowed to wear pants to school. No jeans, I'm talking serious down to earth pants that you had to wear either with a vest or suit jacket. We all thought we had died and gone to heaven!!!
    It wasn't until I started high school that we were allowed to wear jeans. My how times have changed!

  9. I've been following your blog through RSS feed. Just realized I haven't been following publicly through Google. So, I am now! :-) Congrats on your new DT position! You certainly deserve it! My favorite old school memory: when I was young, I was in a spelling bee--I did really well until it came time for the word "downtown" (not even a hard one). I quickly spelled out "D O N, T O N" My teacher gave me a 2nd chance because she knew that I was nervous--I did the exact same thing! I laugh to this day about it! :-) Thanks for a chance to win!!!

  10. Look at all those supplies, wow! And I just love the papers and embellishments you chose to use on this page. Those letter stickers are a beautiful shade of blue! :)

  11. I'm following and my fav old school memory.......well I recently found some old high school photos of myself and I just laughed at all my preppy clothes. OH I am a girl of the 80's. Big hair and preppy clothes. :)

  12. Congrats!!! love your scrap place! beautiful LO!

  13. I follow:) Thought I did last time...but I guess that is just RSS feeding:) Congrats on your new DT!! And thanks for the giveaway!

  14. OH--and my fav memory from school is being in the same grade as my older brother. We were sooooooo close in age and because I talked so much, he was held back in preschool because he wasn't "socially ready". We always called each other the twin--and people STILL to this day in our tiny town (of 2000) ask my mom how the twins are doing! HA! LOVE IT:)

  15. Congrats Kim...I'd be doing a happy dance too...

  16. Kim this is great news! I love your layout about scrap booking what an awesome concept! Beth
