Scrappin’ 5 Challenge

7 New Layouts to Share!

Can you believe it?!?! I actually scrapped this week – and not only did I scrap, but I created 7 layouts!

This week I was feeling a bit down so I decided some scrap therapy was in order and oh, did it feel good to scrap again! I’m busy finishing up the photos from 2012 and hope to get them printed in a book soon. Just a few left to go!

The Day After…

So did you enjoy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day? While the festivities may be over for the most part, sales at both MScraps and Gotta Pixel continue! And my freebies are still available here on my blog, both the DigiScrap Parade and the MScraps blog/FB train. Oh and my newsletter signup freebie too!

Did you get a lot of scrapping done? I have to say, I intended to spend the entire day scrapping. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way. But, I did get three layouts done! Here they are:


This is Jenna from two years ago. It uses my Spring Jubilee kit available here at MScraps and here at Gotta Pixel.


Here is Jordan, also two years ago, using my collab with Mye de Leon, Enjoy Life. It can be found here at MScraps and here at Gotta Pixel.

And finally, here’s the last one with a kit from Creashens.


And now that iNSD is over, I better get back to my self-imposed Scrappin’ 5 Challenge! See you next week with (hopefully) five layouts!

p.s. Just in case anyone happened to wonder if I started my own Scrappin’ 5 Challenge yet, the answer is no. Much too crazy around here getting ready for some future projects. Hope to start in a couple of weeks! 🙂

Scrappin’ 5 Challenge

Am I the only one that lies awake at night and comes up with what I think are great ideas that I hope to remember in the morning??? The other day, I was literally awake until sometime after 1:00 a.m. Now I usually go to bed at 9:30, so I was lying in bed all that time just thinking about things. One of those things was that I just need to start scrapping again. I’ve complained several times about how I never seem to have time anymore and it hit me, I’m never going to have extra time, I have to make the time. I have barely taken any photos this year and I know that later on down the line I am going to regret not capturing all of these memories.

So, I am issuing a challenge to myself and to anyone else who would like to play along. For lack of a better name, I am calling it the Scrappin’ 5 Challenge. I am going to challenge myself to scrap FIVE layouts every week. Now I know for a lot of scrappers, they can do that much in a day. Heck, I used to be one of those scrappers! But these days, I can barely remember the last time I just took some time to scrap a page. I have a lot of pictures piling up (not from this year… yet) and I want to get them scrapped before I totally forget what they were all about!

So, my week will start on Monday and end on Sunday. I hope to post the pages I complete every week here on my blog. And if you’re scrapping along with me, feel free to link me up to your pages! Now, reward if I complete them all? Satisfaction that I am capturing the memories I want to always remember and have them in books for my girls. And maybe some chocolate. 😉 Or wine. Even better. 🙂 Penalty, hmmm… double the next week? LOL I don’t know, but I hope I can do this!

Starts Monday!
