{challenge yourself}

Before I get to the challenge news, I have to start by telling you about the exciting Friday the 13th that is coming up THIS FRIDAY. A BUNCH of the ScrapMatters Designers have teamed up for some "Twice as Nice" collab kits. A total of FIVE collabs in all. My team's kit is seriously FABULOUS and I can't wait to show you.

AND . . . on Friday for 1 day only all the "Twice as Nice" collabs are going to be marked 20% off. You will not want to miss this sale. The kits - I am not exaggerating - every single one of them are incredible. You're going to be drooling all over your keyboard come Friday!!!  I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek at the kit my team made!!!

Ok - on to other news . . .

I am hosting some new challenges that started this week at ScrapMatters. One of them is for the "Past Matters" challenge. It's a heritage challenge. I have never scrapped a heritage photo before, but somehow I ended up hosting a heritage challenge!! HAHA But - since Feb. is the month of love I thought it would be fun to scrap a love story of someone in your heritage. I did my mother's parents because I've ALWAYS loved this photo.

So - dig out an old photo and play along! It was a really fun page to do and got me in that lovey spirit of Valentine's Day. Another girl had her mom write their love story and she included that journaling in her mother's words on her page. I thought that was such a NEAT idea!!

The other challenge I'm hosting that started this week is the new "Everyday Magic" challenge. This week we're scrapping about our cars and transportation! It gave me the motivation I needed to actually WASH my filthy car and take some photos.

I was thinking about making this one of the Everyday Magic challenge when I came across a photo of my parents leaning up against my dad's old Chevelle back when they were dating. I thought - how fun will it be to see our cars 20, 30, 40 years down the road! So - come play along!

I scrapped this page for the DIS challenge last week. The challenge was to scrap pics having something to do with Pooh or his friends. These photos were the first thing I thought of!

AND . . . one more page. My friend Erica Zane came out with these cool new "EZ Masks" that I'm just lovin'. I haven't been one to use this kind of look in the past, but I love how my page turned out and I can't wait to use them again. Next time I'm going to try masking a paper to them! I think that would look COOL!

Don't miss the Speed Scrap tomorrow night (Thursday Feb. 12th) at 7:00 Mountain Time. I'm planning on being there. The ever-so-talented Melanie (melanie3boys) is hosting, so it is sure to be fun.

I have had sort of a weird week (on the personal-side of things), so I haven't done any movie reviews. I know I said I'd do some, and I will. But probably not right away. I dunno - we'll see . .

The Amazing Race starts this Sunday and I'm sooooooo excited! I LOVE the Amazing Race. It's probably my favorite show. I can't wait!!!!!!

Ok I have to toot my own horn a little bit - my "Little Miss Sunshine" layout I posted on Monday made it to the Gallery Standouts blog AND won Layout of the Day at Elemental Scraps! Isn't that cool? I don't win those things very often, so I was jumping for joy when I found out!!!

Ok - that's it from me. I'll see you tomorrow with the sneak peek!


  1. congrats on the lo award and I hope your weird week will get better!

  2. Such fun challenges. I'm going to my parents' house next week and I'm definitely going to go through some old photos. I have one of my grandparents sitting on their car. It will be great. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Congratulations Britt! That's gotta make the "weird week" feel better!

  4. The layouts are all beautiful. Hope the weird week gets better. Congrats on the layout winners and can't wait to see the new kits out.
