Challenge 1- Creative Memories March Virtual Crop

Welcome!

We are SOOOO glad that you joined us for the March 2017  Virtual Crop!

We have so many ideas that we hope will inspire you today!

Welcome back to those of you who have virtually cropped with us before, and a BIG warm welcome to all you newbies!

If you are new, you might be asking yourself “What is a Virtual Crop, and WHY am I here?” Yesterday’s blog post helps describe the event.

First and foremost—no need to get out of your jammies!  Just make yourself a cup of tea/coffee, grab a few photos, along with some scrappy supplies!  (Oh, and you will DEFINITELY need some chocolate!)

We will be hosting several challenges right here on the blog, and posting to the events page on Facebook!

Please post your completed pages on the Facebook Events Page to qualify for the door prizes that will be given away at the end of each challenge.  Use the hashtag #CMVirtualCrop.  If you have any questions, just ask in the comments section of each post either here on the blog or on the Facebook Page.

So, let’s get started!

Challenge #1:  Create a scrapbooking spread using the following sketch as a guide, and using the Custom Cutting System (circles, ovals, or squares/rectangles) to mat or frame your photos.  Please post an image of your layout on the events page prior to the start  (11:00 am CST) of the next challenge to qualify for the prize for this challenge.

  1. I posted my pages twice using the events link but they’re not there! What am I doing wrong? I was able in November to do the challenges and post. I’m a tad frustrated?
