SCNTS Week 4 Entry: The Finals!

I made the Final Round as one of the Top 5!  I'm thrilled...not only because I'm still competing, but also because Maggie Holmes, one of the 2011 Dream Team at Creating Keepsakes Magazine, was this round's guest judge who must have approved of my work!  Yay!

The final challenge was a doozy.  Since the name of the site is Scrapbook Challenges, it stands to reason that the Design Team has to issue challenges from time to time.  For this last round, we had to devise a challenge that could be given to the readers and do a sample page for it.  I was completely stumped.  So, I followed the ever-wise advice of my husband and chose to free-scrap a page, then write a challenge from that creation.  And it worked!'s my challenge: Scrap that thing you've been avoiding! Maybe you have photos that didn't turn out well...protraits that aren't as flattering as you hoped...a life event that was important to you. This year is drawing to a close and a new beginning is just around the bend, so let's clear out all the procrastination! Definitely include journaling and seal the deal with stamping and/or a fastener of some variety. page: the first tribute I've finally done of my wonderful mother-in-law who went to Heaven in March.  It was a tremendous blessing to scrap this story of how she truly got "All Her Wishes."
