Pre-Crop Challenge

For those that don't know we've got a fun Crop/Blog Hop coming up Friday, Feb 24 that runs through Sunday. You will have until February 29th to complete the challenges. So be sure and come by for some games and fun challenges.

So today I'm issuing a pre-crop challenge to get you warmed up for this weekend. Yipee! It's coming up quickly...get your photos printed and your scissors sharpened. Can't wait!

There are so many fun trends and though I don't use them all, there are three that I'm loving right now.
* Twine - love it and want to use it on everything
* Kraft - loving all the fun lines they are making with fun!
* Banners - still loving them even if it took me awhile to want to use them. Now I seem to have to tell myself to stop using them so they aren't on every layout.

So my challenge to you: create a layout using these 3 trends. If you struggle with one of them I'll even accept a layout using 2.

Here is my take for this using my February MME Funday Kit:

Come join in the fun with us! I can't wait to see what you create!

Use your scraps to create a layout

Hi! Raechelle here for my first blog post, and my first challenge on the boards. :) What do you usually do when you have left over scraps from a kit or project you have been working on? I usually toss them in one of my Iris cases to save for a future use, however I had one more layout I needed to create with the wonderful Bo Bunny Snowfall kit I received this month, so I decided to put the scraps to use.
I arranged them into a simple block formation and then added some of the metal accents and stickers. I had completed a layout in no time!

I do hope you'll join us for this challenge, as well as the other challenges that have been posted this month. There is Tami's Color Challenge, Audrey's Love Challenge, and Wendy's Journaling Challenge.

Remember you can win a gift certificate to the store if you are the winner, and with all the new CHA product arriving, the store is filling up with the latest and greatest for your scrappbooking needs (or wants)! Not to mention the discounts you can receive are AMAZING!

Gallery Spying..

As I was browsing through the gallery today, I was just so impressed with all the layouts and project that were in there.  I thought I'd share a few of my favorite over the past few weeks!

This first one is my Laura (scrapaddict4).  I love the colors and I might have to use this "heart matching" idea!

I also love the color combo on this beautifully soft page by Bev. And the square misted doily is so pretty!

I read the journaling on Susan's layout iver and over is so powerful.

I love how Tabitha did the title on this page and use the black and white photo with the kraft papers.

And lastly Louise had such a creative way of adding memorabilia to her layout...she simply wrapped the postcards up with some ribbon!  Love it!

Congrats ladies, and keep those pages coming!

Challenge time at the forum

So have you had a chance to check out some of the February challenges yet?  They are really good ones, now if only I could find the time to play along.  Here is a link to Tami's Color Challenge and then Audrey's Love Challenge if you'd like to play along.  Remember you can win a gift certificate to the store if you are the winner and the store is amazing right now - every kind of new product you would want and the discounts are AMAZING!

Today is my day to issue a challenge here at Memorable Seasons and I chose to challenge our members to a Journaling challenge. 

I always write something on my layouts - what about you? Well for this challenge I am asking you to REALLY write on your layout. You can hand write or use the computer, but you must include a lot of journaling - really put your heart into this one.

Here is one of my examples using my Lily Bee Head Over Heels kit:

 Make sure you stop on by to see more of my examples, check out the other challenges, and do some shopping!

Hello February & a "lovely" reveal

It's always so exciting the first day of the month!  We the DT gals had some seriously good stuff to work with this month and I thought a would share a bit with you from each of us.

First up Joni--she got some MME love pps-great stuff and she ROCKED it!
Look how darn cute that twirly twine is!

Then we have some more lovey dovey stuff from the great artist Audrey working with Crate Paper's Paper HEart line

This one just melts my heart and that use of the negative punch is FAB!!!

Next up is some more sweetness with our new girl Wendy who got to work with the Lily Bee Head over Heels line.  How perfect that she scrapped her love of her life.

(This layout of Wendy's is being published in SNR...YIPEE!! we had to remove it for a while...)

The cluster of course is my FAVORITE part-cuz if you know me I love a good cluster-LOL!

And then we have Miss Sally with some more MME product-the Kraft Fundays--ck out the cute button.

And to think I gave these pps away in a rak-now becuz of Sally I want them back-LOL!

Raechelle our other newest DT gal pal got the beautiful Bo Bunny Snowfall line.  I bet if the Bo Bunny people saw her work they would wanna steal her away from us!
I definitely want these papers now-my checkbook will thank you later Raechelle-LOL!

And then there is me--I got the Echo Park Yours Truly line.  Fun Valentines day pps-but of course I didnt have to use them for that.  So I had fun working with these colors (so not the norm for me as a mom of boys)

Well there you have it for day one of February and trust me it will just keep getting better-we have lots more to share throughout the month. 
Now if you need any of these products of course you can hop on over to the store and pick 'em up-now get ta shopping ladies!
