June 2013 Digital Scrapbooking Blog Challenge
Yes! You read that right… I am starting up my blog challenges again! The last official digital scrapbooking blog challenge I had was April 2011 so it’s been quite some time.
When I first saw this ad, I thought of my 3 kids. Three photos… three kids. Then it struck me as a Stories 365 Jumpstart layout. With that in mind, I created a template for you.�
Rules are simple. Use the ad below as inspiration for a layout. Use whatever kit you want and scrap a layout. Come back and�post a comment with a link to your layout�on this blog post.�
Pick up the June participation bonus for FREE!��
Normally I have a mini kit for a posting bonus but I wanted to get these challenges back up and running again. So for this month my posting bonus is really the FREE template! I’d love to see how you use it.�
And… If you use Storybook Creator 4.0 from Creative Memories, there is a .sbpage file included in the download just for you! Unfortunately I never downloaded Storybook Creator v3 and version 4 won’t let me save the file to be backwards compatible with v3. So those of you with Storybook Creator v3.0 most likely will not be able to open the file. I’m sorry. :(�
If you�ve never played one of my monthly challenges before, you can find my official challenge rules here � >�Jen�s Monthly Blog Challenge Rules.
Alright enough babble… here is the challenge ad for you – and you do not need to use my template to play.
June 2013 Digital Scrapbooking Blog Challenge Ad
I admit I got lazy and just took a photo of this ad with my phone instead of scanning it so the quality isn’t wonderful. But you get the gist.�
The questions at the bottom of the ad spurred me into asking my kids questions. I gave them “the first day of no school” assignment of coming up with 10 questions that they could all answer regarding things that happened this school year. I think they had some fun coming up with the answers.
My Challenge Layout
Here is my take on the ad. The photos were taken the last day of school this year. And yes.. Dan is wearing the same shirt. lol!
