What has been on your to-do list lately? Is it a tire rotation for you car? Cleaning the house for a family reunion? Maybe planning a surprise birthday party? Well, if you want to take a bit of a break from day-to-day life and plan a little extra scrappy FUN into your calendar, then set aside some time for the August Completed Album Challenge. (Psst, we only have three more editions to go in 2022 after this month!)
It’s easy to do — if you completed an album this month (does not need to be from start to finish in August, just completed in August), make a short video flipping through each of the beautiful pages in your newly completed album. Then, post your video in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group with the hashtag #AugustCropDontStop for the chance to win! Now that sounds like a good to-do!
