Oh my word.  Did you see that?  I made a little poem for the blog title.  Okay, I know I’m lame, but I did kind of giggle over that.  Maybe I need some more entertainment in my life?  Wait.  Don’t answer that.  ;)

Actually I have been provided with LOTS of entertainment over the past few days with all of the amazing projects posted on our Facebook Fan Page, as a result of the challenges to our online crop.

So without further delay, I will announce the winners of our 4 challenges along with the winner of the Monday Card Madness Cards.

Challenge #1 / MWM #15: Natalie Henry

I will be the first to admit, that I wasn’t overly thrilled with how the sketch for MWM #15 turned out, but the more I saw the layouts popping up, the more I loved the sketch.  Natalies page is of no exception!  I love the Monkey room and that she created the perfect space for her little guy.  I love that she took photos and preserved the memories of what a darling room he has!  It actually kind of makes me sad that I didn’t take photos of my 4th childs bedroom while we were in a small apartment, saving for our home.  His ‘bedroom’ was a corner of the storage room.  I TRULY wish I would have taken photos to show him how great he has it now.  ;)

Challenge #2: Nancy Roth

This challenge was all about numbers.  Each layout needed to include:

1  sheet of shaped paper

2  photos (no more, no less)

3  words in your title

4  chipboard embellishments and / or flowers

5 sentences in your journaling.

Nancy’s page is GORGEOUS!  I’m so inlove with her little boys and their brown eyes.  I love the way that she used her shaped paper and I love that she created on white.  A girl after my own heart!  ;)

Challenge #3: Kristy MacKeen

Challenge #3 was to create a layout about something that you are thankful for.  I truly have to agree with Kristy that I am so truly thankful for family.

I love the simplicity of her layout and that without a doubt it’s clear that she is truly thankful for the blessing of family in her life.

Challenge #4: Leah Schwartz

This challenge was issued by our Rockstar Melodee.  The challenge was based around the number 4.  Each layout needed to include:

4 – Patterned Papers

4 – Brads

4 – Stickers or Rubons

4 – Ribbons

I’m actually pretty speechless with how in love I am with this layout.  At heart I am such a simple scrapper yet I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE to see layouts that pack a punch.  I don’t think I have ever seen anything cuter than the little clothes pins, and those blue eyes…wow!  Watch.  Out.  Girls!

I decided since we are in the midst of announcing lots of winners that it would be the perfect time to announce the winner of the Monday Card Madness drawing.  Thanks to my trusty friend, Random.Org, I found our last winner for this week…Kyla Norris!

I have absolutely loved seeing the passion of card making sweep over our fans.  While I’m not much of a card maker (they challenge me), I have loved being able to offer a spring board for inspiration.

I love Kyla’s birthday card that she made.  I especially love the banner over the top of the cake.  So cute and something I never would have thought to do!


So there you have it!  If you are one of our lucky winners from this week please send us your address to orders@scrapbooksteals.com and we will get your prizes sent out to you.

Until tomorrow….when we will unveil our next fantastic guest sketch designer….enjoy your day!  <3
