Weekly Challenges

Florida Album Cover

Scrap Your Town
J Binder Frames

We have weekly challenges at the JS mb that Lexicam started for us between classes to keep our scrapping skills up and give us something to do. Well, Lexicam has had real life interfere and she has decided to discontinue with leading the challenges. So I got voted to step up to the plate and take on the leadership role of the leading challenges. There are a couple of others on the mb (Liv, Veevs, etc...) that will step up and lead challenges also.
The first challenge I came up with was Scrap Your Town. Since everyone on our mb is from around the world and the weather has been so crazy and we keep asking "Where do you live?" I figured that would be an interesting way to "See where everyone lived".  

Then last week when we were chatting the thought came up of doing a "scraplift". I thought that was a spectacular idea as I have zero creativity. I look at a blank screen and nothing at all comes. Sad but true. If I have another pic to look at great. I can take it and change it to what I might be able to use, but to start from scratch - torture!!!

I found the scraplift idea at Designer Digitals on their weblog. When I first saw the layout I thought of Lindsan whose style is simple and beautiful. A style I would love to be able to copy. I'm so proud of everyone on our mb who participated in this challenge. We have had more people do this challenge than any I have seen yet. I guess it was easy enough for everyone to do this lo. If you haven't check the gallery - be sure to stop buy and look at the wonderful work everyone has done.

Well, here are my los for the last challenge.

Lisa, what program do you use to organize your digital kits, etc. ? I'm wondering if I really need to purchase Shoebox... or can I get away with iPhoto?
