Challenge at SMJ Team Blog

So, do you like the snow that has been falling here at Scrapbook Ideas? It’s a cool little extra that wordpress added (only until January 2nd) for those of us who don’t have REAL snow where we live :)! I think it’s very pretty and it doesn’t have all the negatives associated with real snow, like the freezing cold, the wet socks, runny nose and aching back from digging your car out… LOL!  

Did you hear about the challenge at the Shabby Miss Jenn Team Blog? All you have to do is scraplift the page by MandaKay, using at least two SMJ items, and you could be randomly chosen to win a $25 gift card to SMJ Designs!!! Plus there will be three winners who get to pick free kits!! Yippee!! Here is my scraplift (click here for credits):

Silly Faces

So fun :)! Oh, and did you see SMJ’s latest????? I think I’m going to have to go get a pony now, so I can use this adorable kit! Ok, maybe just some pony pictures ;)!!!

12 Days of Goodies at The Meadow

12 Days of Christmas

Cool, huh?  I’m soooooo happy the Weeds and Wildflowers Site CT made all these great quick pages with the fabulous Wildflower Holiday Collection!! I had planned on making a quick album with it to sell in the store, but I never had time. Now you can get a whole album full of quick pages, AND they’re FREE!! Each freebie quick page is only up for one day, so remember to keep checking back at The Meadow so you don’t miss out on any of the goodies!! OK, I’ve gotta run over there and grab today’s quick page, by Annie, before it’s too late :)!!

Awesome Contest!

pcLayers Contestreeeeeeeeally want a Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR camera!!! I LOVE Canon. My parents gave me a Canon Sure Shot point and shoot film camera in 2000, then my husband got me a Canon PowerShot digital point and shoot in 2004, which I broke, so we upgraded to the PowerShot A85, which is what I still have right now. Now, don’t get me wrong, it is a nice camera. But it only has 4 mega pixels, and now that Gabe is a toddler, he’s moving around pretty fast and I’m finding it very difficult to get good photos of him with the camera I have right now. The Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR would change all that!!! I can only imagine the wonderful photos that would grace my scrapbook pages if I had an awesome camera like that. I might even get some shots worthy of framing in all my vacant photo frames waiting to be hung on my bare walls :)! Oh I want that camera soooooo bad!!!

Anyway, that’s why I was so excited to find out about this contest. For each day I enter a digital scrapbook page into the contest, using products from pcLayers.com, I get another “ticket” in the raffle to win the camera. Oh how happy I would be!!! Plus there are lots of other fantastic prizes for the actual contest too! Check it out: Click here to read about the contest at pcLayers.com!

I have been entering a page every day since I found out about the contest, let’s see how long I can keep it up :)! I even won a $10 gift card to pcLayers for displaying their contest blinkie, fun fun! Here is a slide show of the pages I’ve made for the contest:

You should join in the fun too (but if you win the camera, you can give it to me for Christmas, okay?)!

Two Page Layouts

When you create your scrapbook pages, do you make them with a facing page in mind, or as a single, stand-alone page? I have noticed that there is a trend toward creating solitary scrapbook pages, especially in the world of digital scrapbooking. But it really does look much better to have a two-page spread if you plan on putting your pages in a scrapbook.

Angie’s Calendar If you are in need of a little push to motivate you to get back into double page scrapping, then you simply must go check out Angie’s (you know, Ikeagoddess?) challenge going on at The Meadow! Everyone who participates will get this AWESOME calendar that Angie made, using W&W goodies! Plus one lucky winner will get a W&W gift card, yippee! She also challenged us to use Heidi’s new kit, Warming the Heart, which I just  LOVE LOVE LOVE :)! Plus, it’s on sale for 20% off right now :)!!

You’ll have to hurry though, the challenge ends at midnight on Saturday!

Here are the pages I contributed :)! *Click images for journaling and credits*

Have fun :)!

Celebration Winners!

UPDATE: The prizes won by each person have been added below their names :)! I will start getting the prizes out tomorrow :). 

Thanks to the amazing skills of my wonderful husband, the contestant list has been organized and the winners have been randomly chosen!! The spreadsheet and formulas he created all seemed very complicated and official to me, thank goodness my man is a rocket scientist – so it was very simple for him to do :). AND he let me press “F9″ to randomly generate the winner list :)!
