Another month is almost gone, which means the Completed Album Challenge must be ON! Yes indeed, the February Completed Album Challenge is going on now in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group! Want a little more spring in your step? Well, you’re in luck — today also marks the launch of the newest Painted Garden collection, filled to the beautiful brim with juicy strawberries and blackberries, hummingbirds, sunshine bursts, fresh florals and horticulture and more.
If you completed an album this month (does not need to be from start to finish in February, just completed in February), make a short video flipping through each of the pages in your newly completed album. Then, post your video in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group with the hashtag #CompletedFeb2023 for the chance to win!
Here’s an example of what your Completed Album Challenge video could look like!
