Life Preservers Blog Hop



Scrapbooking is a wonderful creative outlet in our lives and our unique style makes our creations different. Everyone has their own reasons for scrapbooking, for me my hands love to play and create colourful embellies and my mind likes to think of new ideas and my heart likes to record all those sentimental moments that should be there for my children to cherish.
For National Scrapbooking Day the design team at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club wanted to bring a little extra excitement to May 1st. The 8 person team has partnered up to create 4 challenges, each challenge has a part a and b. So take the journey to see why spring has so many different reasons to celebrate National Scrapbook Day.

To be entered into a random RAK from me leave a comment and link me up with your layout (for LP girls, you can link from our gallery) To be entered in a draw from Life Preservers leave a comment on every blog (including LPS) and link up your creations.

Gabrielle and I have teamed up to provide you with your second challenge. Create a layout using no pattern papers, you will use ribbon instead, please use at least 5 different kinds. Now hop on over Gabrielle's blog to find out the second part of our challenge. For my example I used several types of ribbon and glued them down to a piece of paper and then cut it evenly into a rectangle, there is a photo to show this as well. Please feel free to use this idea, or any other part of my layout to complete this challenge.

Thanks so much for participating in Life Preservers first annual NSD blog hop, now carry on and have fun!
