Soul Scrappers Quest...


Want to know what the Soul Scrappers Quest is?

It's a fun challenge where you sign up to receive FREE goodies in which you are to complete your project... whether it's a layout, mixed media or other project.... only at Soul Scrappers!

There is a maximum of only 20 participants.  So if you're interested, hop on over to Soul Scrappers and check it out!

Seriously... it's really fun. 
All the goodies you will receive challenge you to be creative on how you use your goodies on your project.  The more creative you are, the better!
It's so cool to see the variety of layouts in the Gallery and how everyone interprets how to use their FREE goodies.

So... the theme for this (SSQ32) round is:


Here's most of the write up at Soul Scrappers:

Sign ups start February 1st
For this SSQ we're going to have fun discovering ourselves.  Here are a few meanings to hopefully help you along and get you thinking...
--- Connecting with your needs
--- Identifying your self and your needs
--- Acknowledging your full potential while realizing your faults
--- Accepting yourself
--- What people try to do to learn more about themselves, and it's not always easy.  This could be done through travel, or music, or artwork, but mostly through finding one's passion, since that's a good way to find out who you are.
Also, you MUST add ONE of the following quotes on your layout, mixed media or other OTP project: 

*** "The only journey is the journey within." -Rainer Maria Rilke
*** "Be who you are, and find yourself so you can be your own person and enjoy life with no regret." -Bonnie Zackson Koury
*** "All the wonders you seek are within yourself." -Sir Thomas Browne
*** "You've got to know yourself so that at last you can be yourself." -D.H. Lawrence
*** "You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need." -Jerry Gillies
*** "At the center of your being you have the answer, you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu
*** "Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it." -Buddha
Never done an SSQ (Soul Scrappers Quest) before??
Here's what happens:
1. Sign up to show you are interested (and this means you will be sent a pack of FREE goodies to use on your page/ project - you will not know what is in the package but it might include some papers, ribbons, die cuts, journal cards, stamped items, and maybe even a surprise). We have a maximum of 20 participants, so sign up quick.
2. Everyone receives the same packet of goodies - the key is how you use these items to make an original page, using most or all of the goodies supplied.
3. By signing up you are agreeing to participate in this challenge. You can make a layout, OTP or mixed media item. 

4. The only hint you will get is the theme, so for this challenge we will scrap the theme:
Then sign-up.  It's that easy!  :)
The time frame for this SSQ32 is as follows:
Feb 1st to Feb 15th-  Sign-up continues until Feb 15th or sooner if there are 20 participants
Feb 17th -  SSQ mystery packages will be sent out!  Woo hoo!
Feb 28th to Mar 30th -  Upload your images to the gallery from Feb 28th until the deadline Mar 30th.
This allows time for all participants to receive their envelopes before seeing images in the gallery.
Benefit of the Quest!!
1. You scrap with items you may never have thought of using before.

2. You get to see how other individuals use their items and you will be amazed at all the creative ideas.

3. You use techniques and ideas that you can use on future projects.

4. Makes you think outside the box, you become more creative and arty!

5. Perfect for beginners because you will learn so much!
6. Oh, and did I mention there will be prizes?  Yep, free goodies and a chance to win prizes!  

Hurry!   Sign up now!  
You won't want to be left out!
Come on and join in on the fun! :)

Hello Weekend!!!

Hello everyone!

Happy Weekend to you all!

I was SO excited to have Friday off!  I got so much done!  Woo hoo!
And now I can enjoy the weekend!  :)

But first, I have a layout to share from the Sketch Challenge that I'm hosting at Soul Scrappers.  This is my "regular" challenge with a different sketch each month.
Simply create your layout based on the sketch below.  Easy peasy!  Then add your project in the Gallery so everyone can admire it!  :)

This is a fun sketch... originally a digital freebie layout, which can also easily be a traditional layout too.

Before we get to the sketch, this is my layout titled, "Summer Lovin'"
Yup.... this is me!  My niece surprised me by asking the lifeguard if I could get on his 4-wheeler so she could get a picture of me.  She didn't think I would do it.... but I surprised her! 
It was the most beautiful day at Miami Beach!  I LOVED it!!!

The ribbon was curled and twisted into place where I wanted it.

So appropriate!  :)

Another sub title.

A cluster of flowers in the lower left of the photo, with gems in their centers.

More sub title words, a tag tucked behind the photo and a stick pin was also tucked behind the pp.

Flowers and gems curve beside the photo with the page title tucked behind them.

A closer look.

And here's a better photo of the stick pin.... my new love!

 And finally, here's the sketch.  
From: Quality DigiScrap Freebies: Template freebie from Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs
This is such a fun sketch!

So... head on over to Soul Scrappers, sign up and check out the rest of my challenge and all the other great challenges too!  And I almost forgot to mention the prize I will be offering to one lucky winner!

Thanks for stopping by!
