Virtual Crop: Challenge 2

Are you having FUN yet?

We are LOVING all the projects that you are posting on our Facebook Event Page!

Let’s keep moving—so we can get as many projects completed today as possible!  It’s all about the completed project!  Keeping those memories alive, in those beautiful scrapbooks of yours!

CHALLENGE 2:  Create a layout using the A Year to Remember Collection WITHOUT using the calendar grid pages!  (If you don’t have that collection, you can create a layout using any collection, but using the layouts shown as inspiration…(color, layout composition, or theme!!)……BUT, you will want to contact your ADVISOR to get the collection ordered, as the patterned papers are so versatile, and can be used on just about ANY themed scrapbooking layout!!!

Here is what the Content Contributors shared with us:
