National Scrapbook Day

Hi there! Hope you are having a great week so far! Mine is already super busy since I am getting ready to go out of town…. heading to Cali to teach at the Reflections Event! I can't wait to get there!! It's going to be a blast!!

In case you haven't heard, National Scrapbook Day is this Saturday! There are lots of fun things going on this week across the web to celebrate and I wanted to share a couple of them with you.

First off, Studio Calico is having hourly chats with the design team on Saturday from 10am – 7pm est. 

The design team members are also each hosting challenges on their blogs with a winner of a $10 SC gift certificate for each challenge! Sadly I cannot participate in the chat since I will be teaching all day Saturday but I will be there with you in thought! 

MY CHALLENGE is to use mist on a layout! You know I love mists and can't get enough of them! And I know that a lot of you are still intimidated by them so I am challenging you to go for it! Don't be afraid! I promise you will love it!! You can use mist in any way on a layout – sky is the limit! It just has to be on there! 

In order to be eligible to win you have to post your layout to the SC gallery and then come back here and leave a comment on this post linking us to your layout in the gallery. Make sense? Good luck! I will be back on Sunday to announce the winner! You can also combine my challenge with any of the others so you don't have to do a separate layout for each one… combine any of them that make sense!

Here are all the other challenges:

Emily: Flickr or Tumblr Inspiration Challenge

Jenn: Sketch Challenge

Davinie: Card Challenge

Lisa: Scrap a Phone Picture Challenge

Kelly: 5 Product Challenge

Nicole H: Old Photos Challenge

Nicole S: Punch Challenge

Waleska: Ad Inspiration Challenge

Sasha: White Space Challenge

Stephanie W: Lift YOURSELF Challenge–-Your Favorite Layout Edition

Susan: Use your favorite SC stamp on a card Challenge

April: Negative Town (use negatives from product packaging/diecuts/etc.) Challenge

Tina: Scrap your avatar Challenge

Steph H: The Opposite Challenge (scrap the opposite way you normally do)

Joy: Scrap Yo Mama! Challenge

You can go to the Studio Calico Blog here and then link to all of their blogs for more information on how to participate and enter to win the prizes!!

You will also want to keep checking the SC blog throughout the week because they will be doing a giveaway where 2 lucky people will win a 6-month Studio Calico subscription for FREE!!

While you are over there be sure to check out the new punches! I just got a few of them yesterday and am sooooo excited to play with them! I got this one and this one and this one!! So fun!! You know I love me some new punches!! 🙂

Reveal night is tonight for the new May kit! I know I always say this but this one is definitely definitely a favorite!! Did I say definitely? 🙂 Here are sneaks of my layouts… I am dying to see what the rest of the design team did as well as one of my fave scrappers who is the guest designer this month… Jennifer Johner! Love her style!!
