November Photo a Day Challenge Contest- Join in on this month's additional challenge. I love taking pictures and as a scrapper we must take pics or we have nothing to scrapbook. Let's document the everyday part of life.
Okay, so here is the lowdown:
Take at least one picture every day.
You can not take pictures of your kids or dog every day (you may take one of each)
Think outside of the box. Examples: your favorite slippers, a special blanket, or a beautiful sunset/sunrise.
Check out the blog for picture examples. You will find the link to the challenge in the upper left sidebar of the blog. To help inspire you; complete this challenge for a chance at a gift certificate for Everything Scrapp'n.
$10.00 to one luck winner who takes a picture a day and links to where I can see them.
$25.00 to one luck winner who takes a picture a day and scraps them. For this one you have till December 6th.
(This is open to EVERYONE. This includes the Design Team and outside the United States. If you are outside the US, just look over the shipping information at the store. I do ship at actual cost to anywhere)

November's Guest Design Team Member Spotlight: Kimberly Mace
Where are you from?
Warner Robins, GA

What is the name and link to your blog?
Like seriously for real - Like Seriously For Real

What is your day job?
Stay at home mom. I have a 9 month old son and a 4 year old son that just started Pre-K.

What fad of scrapbooking did you never get into?
The super-sparse look. You know, the teeny, tiny picture that is off-centered with a tiny strip of ribbon and a title. I can admire it, but it just looks plain when I try to create that way.

What would you call your scrapbooking style?
Bright, layered, geometric, playful, and somewhat traditional as I like to use multiple photos and always journal.

What items will we always find on your projects?
I would say probably always brads and circle shapes.

What sparks your creativity when you are scrapbooking?
New paper! I don't even have a ton, because I use up every little scrap. New paper gets me planning out new layouts and pulling coordinating papers. Shopping for new papers is just as fun, because I start mentally noting what photos I want to get scrapped and what will work for me.

What is your favorite layout of all time and why?
It is really impossible for me to pick just one. Here's a newer one I'm pretty happy with. I love all the different silly pictures of my son and he truly is a unique one! I had fun splattering paint and love this color green too. This layout is one of those that definitely looks better in person, I promise!

I want to say a special thank you to Denise Martinez. She will be stepping down from her DT position at the end of this month. She was instrumental in getting the Design Team started and has shared her beautiful work with us during her time with us. We will miss her and her designs and great altered projects.

Inventory- Make sure that you check out the sales categories. I put on my annual scrapbooking yard sale and that means it's time to check inventory and sales categories. Check out the merchandise that has been moved to the sales categories and the merchandise that is further on sale.

Free Shipping Winner- Congratulations to Mary!

I want to wish you ALL a Happy Thanksgiving. Take lots of pictures and enjoy your family.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
