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!
