Just Add Scrapbooking Challenge #1

I hope you all have a creative and inspiring 2012 and hope you enjoy our brand new Scrapbooking Challenges.
Starting today the 1st of January we will be having a monthly scrapbooking challenge on the first Sunday of each Month.
This month you have all month to scrap a LO (Layout=scrapbook page) in any size but it must be a LO to go into an album .ie not an OTP/mini album.

This Months Theme is...
Firsts or One ..
since its our very first inaugural Challenge and its the first day of the New Year!
Please make sure you have First or One in your title.

Heres what Ruthy and I came up with for our LOs to inspire you

and even though this is an optional challenge for the rest of the Design Team, a few of them played along too ..some of them completing their first ever LO!
Here is what they came up with.

Chantell Randall

Now while some of you may be quivering in your boots at the thought of scrapbooking..Ruthy and I would like to show you one of our first ever LOs. Anyone can scrapbook and there are no rules..if you like what youve done thats all that matters. While I cringe at my first LOs that are nine years old ..its the process and memories that are often overlooked that are important in the journey.

  3. Looking good ladies! Happy New Year to you all :)

  4. Thanks Delys and Ruthy for sharing your first LOs.. I am one of the quivering boots brigade, LOL! Thanks Delys for reminding me it doesn't need to be perfect; and it's the memories that matter.

  5. I'm new to this so I hope I did it right! Thanks for the challenge!

  6. Hello JAI girls!

    I just wanted to ask a question. Is digi-scrapping allowed for this challenge?

    I made a digi LO for this challenge this afternoon ( and then realised that possibly, digi-scrapping was a no-no. Thought I'd ask before I linked to save you having to delete me ;-).

    Thanks for your help (and thanks for the inspiration regardless...I had fun),

  7. yep Digi scrapping is welcome Sam..cant wait to see it!

  8. Thanks for letting me know Delys!

  9. Nice pictures! Happy new year :)

  10. woops, I think I just added my entry a bit too late! I was working on Queensland time and forgot about daylight saving - sorry about my boo boo.


    even though it was for Jan., here is mine. :)
