January 2011 Crop Challenge #1: Coffee Break

January 2011 Crop Challenge #1: Coffee Break

The prize for this challenge is Belinda Akers's Once Upon a Springtime 8"x8" paper pad. PLUS, Belinda is also including six of her AWESOME foil tags.

The first challenge of the new year is to make a layout or other project describing how you like to unwind and relax.

To participate, create a layout of project about how you unplug. You can either complete the Cupcakes & Coffee mini album project with me on UStream and submit it for this challenge, or create a layout or project or your own design. The layout may be any size {12"x12", 8.5"x11", 8"x8", 6"x12", etc.} and can be either a one-page or two-page layout, but it must have photos and journaling to be considered complete.

Enter the challenge by posting a link to your submission BELOW by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 11, 2011. The link can either be to a photo of your entry in an online gallery, or to a video on YouTube or to a post on your personal blog ~ wherever!

Remember that you have until 6:00 p.m. on Monday {that's Miami, FL EDT USA time which is GMT-4} so you have until then to submit an entry for each challenge. Prize winners will be chosen randomly on Monday and posted in a new "January 2011 Crop Prize Winners" thread in the forum on The Beach.

You will get one entry for each challenge you participate in, so get ready to scrap! The next challenge will be posted at 4:00 p.m. Miami time!

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.
