A long time since I have completed a scrapbook layout, that is. This one started with an e-mail from my friend and upline, Debbie Naylor, telling our SU! group about a new on-line community that focuses on scrapbooking. It is called Soul Scrappers and it is a group of very talented ladies. Well, at least I think it is all ladies. Anyway, one of the ladies issued a challenge that started with a quote - "If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.". She was taking 20 people to participate and, if you signed up, you would all be getting the same products to be used in your layout. Of course, you would not know what you had to work with until your envelope arrived. Free products to do something I love with --- what could be more fun. I signed up as quick as a wink!!! I was so excited when my envelope arrived. I got brads, dew drops, paper flowers, ribbon, stickers, a transparency, some stamped boot prints, a paper clip and a tag. Phew!!! I think that is everything. You could combine these with anything you wanted, but you had to use most, if not all, of the items sent. What was even better was that the ribbon was from SU!, so I was able to match products with what I have plenty of. Here is what I ended up with..........

I am partial to 2 page layouts. This is mostly because I take a bunch of pictures of my kids and love every one of them. These pictures are from a trip to Myrtle Beach in 2005. And, yes, I am way behind. Man, those were the days......

Here are closer views of each page and you can click on each one for an even larger view:

I really enjoyed doing this challenge and hope to do many more in the future. It is a good way to kick start your scrapping mojo.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!!!
