In honor of an online friend who passed away, I would like for you to go to Janice's Gallery and find one of her layouts to scrap-lift. We miss you Janice. Here is the one that gave me the inspiration for this challenge:

Out of the box Scrap-lift

LOVE LOVE LOVE Jael's work! She is awesome and her work is bright and beautiful and totally out of my comfort zone. So go here and scrap-lift one of her layouts. Don't forget to tell us which one you picked. Good luck!!!

Cardstock only!

For this challenge, you can only use cardstock. No exceptions! Here is an example by my good friend April:


make some doodles. You can use a template if you want. Or you can just freehand it. Here is mine:

Stamp Something!

Stamp anything! Here's mine:


Use em! Doesn't matter how many, or where...just use them! Here's mine:

Scrap-Lift a scrap-lift

This is a layout that I scrap-lifted out of a magazine (can't remember which one). Take it and use it to create your layout. You can do one or two pages. Good luck!

Song Title and/or Lyrics

Everyone has a special song...ot at least a song that fits the situation perfectly. So, why not scrap it? Here's mine:

Brads and/or eyelets

We all have the collection of 100,000,000 of these. And if you are like me, you hardly ever use them anymore. Well, the challenge would be to use them on this layout. The more you use, the better, but definitely more than 10. Here's mine:

No Photos!

Sometimes, we have that special event or just a special something that need to be remembered, but we don't necessarily have any photos. Well, your challenge would be to make a layout without any pictures. Here's mine:

Pattern Paper

We all have about a million different types of pattern papers. Here is your chance to use some. Use at LEAST 10 different pattern papers on a single layout. If it's a double pager, it should have 20. This would also be a great way to use your scraps. Here is mine:


This challenge is to use more than 10 buttons. They can be all the same or all different, however you would like to do it as long as there are at LEAST 10.
Here is my sample:

Welcome to Scrap for a Cure! 2010 will be the first year for an online crop as well as the in person crop. I know that money is tight and traveling isn't an option for everyone, but I thought this might be a fun way for everyone to be involved.
