Today's the Day!

There is a fun mini-crop going on today at Scrapgal
Lots of challenges and prizes to celebrate the reopening of the store. It officially starts at 10am, but a few of the challenges are up already. You can see them on the boards here
on the crop forum!
My first challenge is a number journaling challenge. Simply to number your photos and then do a list with a short explanation of each photo. 
Another thing I wanted to point out about my layout, is that the lined circle paper on the right came from a Jenni Bowlin mini-album. I took it apart to use the cardboard circle covers for stencils in the future and the pages for journaling! I LOVE repurposing mini-albums and stretching out their use.

I also gave an example of how it doesn't have to be a two pager. I created this one page layout a while ago using the same journal method :)

The deadline for the challenges, isn't until Monday, June 13th at midnight. Winners will be chosen on Tuesday morning to win some great prizes like the three you see here! The big Cosmo Cricket pack is for the "Queen of the Crop" winner :)


  1. Awesome challenges and very beautiful LO's!!
    Love the prizes!!

  2. Hi MJ, im glad you stopped by my blog because it made me come to your blog and its GORGEOUS x

  3. what a beautiful blog you have, love the LO's and oh my i love that thickers line. thanks for the nice comments about my stitching. What i do is get a circle thing and just place it on the layout then use my paper piercer to put holes round it then just sew, really easy

  4. Your layouts are lovely.
    Like the idea of numbering your photo's and then journaling about each one.
    I can't do a one page layout, it just isn't in my gene's, lol.

  5. i love the maps :)
    we like maps at our house too.

  6. Ooh, thanks for sharing these! I love dismantling mini-albums, too -- especially the JBS ones!
