{Book of Life} - join in with us!

Right now @ Shop and Crop we have an awesome new BOOK OF LIFE

The BOOK OF LIFE Challenge Information

Let's Get Real !

"Reality contains unparalleled beauties.
The fantastic and unexpected, the ever-changing
and renewing is nowhere so exemplified
as in real life itself.

Berenice Abbott


We invite you to join the new Shop and Crop Challenge.
Each month at S&C we, the "Reality Scrapping Team" will be announcing themes about real life challenges for you to scrap. We will focus our scrapping on small "bites" from our real lives.

WHEN: Competition starts today, April 17, and runs for a 6 month period until the end of September.

WHERE: Register your interest in this thread.

THE CHALLENGE: As a participant, you'll create TWO layouts EACH MONTH for the comp and upload these to the Shop and Crop BOL gallery.
Each month there will be a list of three alternative themes set by the Shop and Crop Design Team members, from which you'll choose two. (Check the BOL thread in this forum for the April themes).
At the end of the sixth month period you will have a completed album of 12 layouts. (You can do more layouts if you wish).
The format for the challenge is 9x9" You don't have to scrap in this size to participate, but to be eligible for the prizes you do.
Check out the Shop and Crop store for your Heidi Swapp 9x9 album (you can use any colour, but keep in mind that you will need to fully decorate your album cover).

PRIZES: While our aim of this challenge is purely to encourage you to scrap about REAL LIFE, we are offering further incentive in the way of prizes.

From the completed layouts each month, we will all be able to vote for our favourite layout, through the S&C voting facility. The winner will receive a prize pack of scrapping supplies worth $20.

At the end of the 6 months we will award a $20 Shop and Crop store voucher to everyone who has completed all 12 layouts, as per the challenge guidelines.


Register your interest in participating in this challenge right here!

Ensure you have a 9x9" album or order one at S&C.

Check out the themes for this month in the BOL thread.

Begin creating your layouts!

We hope you can join us for some real life scrapbooking. We'd love to see some new members join us as well, so if you haven't been involved in S&C challenges before, we would love to meet you.

Come and challenge youself to a small dose of reality!

If you have any questions, please ask away......
