Shimelle's Seventh, Eighth & Ninth Challenges (plus Sketches 7 & 8 and a Starting Point)

My challenge to myself this weekend was to fully participate in Shimelle's Scrapbooking Weekend and complete all the challenges. I was feeling pretty good when I went to bed last night and had completed all six challenges and commented on the other questions posts. However, when I woke up this morning, I discovered that FOUR new challenges had already been posted. By the time I returned from church and was ready to start scrapping, another challenge had been posted and I read Shimelle's comment that she had TEN challenges for today.

So, my revised goal is to complete as many challenges as I can today and then pick up the leftovers as I have time throughout the week. I have completed three more challenges at this point and am sharing them below. For two of these challenges, I used sketches from the 28 Sketches workshop as I continue to also work my way through those.

Challenge 7 - Create a scrapbook page with a pocket or an envelope filled with something worth sharing. (Sketch #8)

Challenge 8 - Create a project featuring a stamp you should use more often. [I used some alphabet stamps.] (Sketch #7)

Challenge 9 - Choose an outdated challenge and consider it reopened just for you! [I chose Shimelle's most recent Starting Point so I'm not sure that it is actually "outdated".]

OK, I still have a few hours left in the day, so I'm going to attempt a couple more layouts. How about you? Are you still scrapping this weekend?


  1. Wow, good for you Meissa, you've done great! Your pages are so inpsiring!! This weekend was just a total catch up. Except for today and today was just a day of rest that was very much needed!

  2. You have done so well keeping up!...I'll try and get a few more done over the week

  3. I am utterly impressed with you. I can't remember the last time I did more than one layout in a week. have some custom album orders to fill so that will change but they won't be mine :/

  4. Really wonderful pages! Love the colors and pocket on the first and the layers on the third!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
