National Scrapbooking Day Challenge & Giveaway!

I'm back with the challenge and giveaway for National Scrapbooking Day! It's easy peasy, and you have until midnight EST, Friday, May 13th to get your entry posted into Mr Linky. The winner gets a great cardmaking bundle I've put together, as well as, a few surprises I'm throwing in. I'll use random.org to pick a winner, and announce the winner on Monday, May 14th.

Here's the challenge: Make a card or scrapbook layout using fruit! That's it! Told you it was easy! Apples, pears, bananas, oranges, lemons, strawberries, etc. Any fruit, any theme, any colors! I'm taking the challenge too...check out the video below.



Thanks for watching, and playing along!

Hugs,

  4. Hi Mary..this is Terri of Two Pink Peas. I love, love, love your cards. You are so creative. I will make a card for this giveaway before the deadline. We are selling our house right now and building a new one at the same time so we are really busy. I wanted you to know that I have your button on my 2 blogs, actually it has been there since I first started my blogs (same blogs different names). I would love it if you could visit me at www.twopinkpeas.blogspot.com. I have not been able to make very many cards lately since my supplies are all packed up but I am still buying new products all the time..lol. Thanks for all that you do!!

  54. Phew! I was able to post my picture on Friday, but couldn't leave a comment and wondered if that would hinder my chances. I got to look at everyone's lovely cards up until my entry. They are all great and I love the fact that you gave us this opportunity. As my entry says - just in time for my wedding anniversary. My last name means Peach in spanish and I thought this would be appropriate to give to my hubby of 25 glorious years.
