The first Saturday of every May is National Scrapbook Day! All over you will find friends gathering to capture their memories! Some will gather at crops, others online at their favorite forum or 2. Your favorite blog artists showcase challenges to provide inspiration and manufactures all over offer challenges and prizes!
One of my favorites is ECHO PARK! Check out what they have going on today to win some prizes. Every 2 hours something new is going on. Right now it is a Treasure Hunt…and there is even a project showcasing the Yours Truly Collection I designed for them!
My first inspiration was my friend Susan’s Sketch Savvy blog. She is so amazing at providing just the right framework to make designing a great page easy! I chose Sketch #82 for my layout. I loved the banner on the left and the placement of the “photos”
I was able to use some of the papers from my latest Mini Collection – Melody of Life from Echo Park mixed with some old and new My Minds Eye papers. I added some vintage lace and a few bits and pieces I have gathered over he years. Even a little bit of the latest trend of washi tape was added to the layout.
Enter by sharing a project using any of the Echo Park collections I have designed. (Be Mine, Victoria Gardens, Yours Truly and Melody of Life) Upload your project to your favorite online gallery, your blog, or even on my Facebook page. Then link it on the comments of this blog post. You have all week to create a project and upload it by Sunday May 13th at midnight. Then on Monday May 14th I will select a winner. I have a prize package of the Victoria Gardens Collection and since I have to always use a few vintage findings on my creations there will be a goodie bag of those too! Happy Creating!
