Weekend Bonus News - Featured & Challenging

If you read my Monday post, you may recall that I mentioned I'd have some cool bonus news to share coming out of the weekend retreat. Every month, the Paperie has a blog spotlight where they feature a local scrapbooker and showcase a few of their layouts. Well...this month I'll be the featured scrapbooker. How cool is that?! Over the next few weeks you'll be seeing a few of the layouts I made at the Paperie retreat posted up there, which of course I'll direct you to once they're live. Fun right?

Well it gets better. The Paperie also regularly posts a Mojo Monday challenge where they challenge their readers to make a layout or a card based on the challenge - so it could be using a particular colour combo, technique, image, etc. This week's challenge is also based on a layout I did. I scraplifted (for non-scrapbookers, that's basically copying a layout you like, either in full or in part) a layout I saw on Pinterest. It's Pin{spiration} if you will.

This week, the Paperie is challenging it's readers to create their own layout based on my scraplifted layout and then post it in the Mojo Monday photo gallery on Facebook. Of course, since I've already made the layout, maybe I'll make a go at turning it into a card. Or perhaps use the challenge as a jumping off point to scraplift another layout from my Pinterest boards. Maybe one of these?

An Elizabeth Kartchner layout, simple and sweet

love the colours and theme on this one

clean and bright, fun for a little boy layout for sure.
Anywho, if you're a scrapbooker, make sure to follow the Paperie blog and like their facebook page to see more local scrapbookers (like me!) and their work!
