Just SCRAP! New Reader Challenge


Just over two months ago, I wrote a post called “Scrapping Roadblocks” where I talked about the roadblocks that sometimes stop us from scrapping. I gave our readers the challenge to scrap and it thrilled me that so many of you took me up on that challenge (some after a long break)!

Today, I want to introduce you to our new “challenge” here at The Daily Digi:


Just Scrap! Just set aside the time, set aside the roadblocks, and SCRAP!

Where to Start

Start with something that “makes your heart sing” (as I always say on the Digi Show). If it’s a product, start there. Maybe it’s a photo or a memory or story. Whatever you think of or see that makes your heart feel full, start there.

What Next?

Open your favorite scrapping program and get to work! Pull in the photos, the products, a template, whatever you need to get you in a grove. Save often and if you have to come back, that’s okay, the important thing is that you SCRAP!

Remember, something is better than nothing!

Here’s my layout:


supplies: Papers by Studio Rosey Posey, alpha and doodles by Kate Hadfield, Template by Nanies Designs (TDF29), Title Builder by Anna Forrester, Supply Tracker by SpeedScraps.

When one of our team members announced that she was going on bed rest with her pregnancy, it instantly brought these memories back and I felt an urge to document them, so I did. Here’s what the journaling says:

When you went in for your transplant, my sisters gave us a few months of Netflix. We were excited to try it and we did more than that! The day we came home from the hospital, I went down on bed rest with my pregnancy at 20 weeks. We would send the kids off to school and watch movies the whole time they were gone. There just weren’t too many things we could do your first few weeks home, no driving and no public places. Crazy crazy time of life for us! It was filled with lots of emotions (happy, scared, stressed), but these are some of my favorite memories from that time. It’s also some of my favorite memories from our almost 17 years together. We had a new start with your health and had been given the gift of time! A second chance! What more could anyone want? We just celebrated your 5th year anniversary of your transplant and we are still Netflix subscribers…going strong, never stopped! Lots of good times!

I’m so happy to finally have this memory documented so I don’t forget!

Now it’s your turn! Come share with us what you scrapped (post a link) by 9pm ET Saturday, May 14th and one person will be chosen randomly to win $10 in product from a contributor. The only rule is that the layout needs to be scrapped and posted in response to this challenge Smile
