AnYthiNg GoeS ChAllEngE #5...

Oh my gosh, it's week 5 already and I am having a BLAST doing these challenges. I hope you are too. This weeks challenge is brought to you by me. It will hopefully make you think. :o) What I want you to scrap is this... "In 20 Years." Hmmmm, got your thinking caps on yet? My challenge was done from the book "Don't sweat the small stuff..." I remembered this one quote and have tried to live by it ever since. "In 20 years will it really matter?" So, get to thinking. I can't wait to see what you come up with. Oh and here is my journaling cuz I don't think you can read it:

Will it matter that your kitchen floor was clean for your party?

Will it matter that you had a good time with friends-messy house or not?

Will it matter that your son got hand prints on the wall?

Will it matter that you had fun while making a mess with your kids?

Will it matter that you posted to a bunch of threads online and were really “popular?”

Will it matter that you closed your laptop and spent quality time with your children?

Will it matter that your layouts were considered artsy or awesome?

Will it matter that you are documenting family history?

Will it matter that you “won” an argument with your loved ones?

Will it matter that you make sure to never go to bed angry?

Here's my take on the sketch (I had originally done this sketch for an entirely different layout and then changed my mind):

Challenge #2...

This challenge is to scrap your 4th pictures. We all love scrapping those awesome single photo layouts but not for this one. :o) Get out your 4th pictures, whether it be from this 4th of July (which Stacey and I have done) or from previous celebrations. SCRAP them. There is one catch, you have to use at least 3 pictures on your layout. DON'T FORGET TO LINK YOUR LAYOUTS HERE SO WE CAN OOH AND AHH OVER THEM (It gets hard to remember where everyone has posted their layouts so this just makes it easier on us and we want to make sure we don't miss out on any of your awesome layouts. We'll do our best to comment and check out all of your layouts that you post). Also, don't forget that we pick favorites each week so stay tuned for last weeks favorites tomorrow.

Here it is!!!

The moment you have ALL been waiting for (I know that you've just been checking over and over. ROFL). Here's the very first "AnyThIng GoEs" blog challenge. It's a very simple one to start. Stacey and I want you to do an 8.5x11 layout landscaped. I've done a few of these over the past week and it's been a lot of fun for me to scrap a different size. So, let's see what you come up with. Don't forget to post your links here so we know that you've done the challenge. Oh and here are a few examples that Stacey and I have done:

Candi's "Thankful" layout

Stacey's "Vacation" layout

These are both digital layouts but we want you to do whatever you want to do. You can do paper or digital, the choice is yours. Have FUN with this and we can't wait to see what you come up with.

Meet the challenging chicks...

We are the chicks who make up this blog. I am Candi aka Cavish. I've been scrapbooking for 6 years. I do a little bit of everything. I started paper scrapping and then got into altering things as well as digi scrapping and card making. I love creating and I hope that this blog will help you to get creating as well.

This is Stacey. She has been my friend since like FOREVER. She just got into digi scrapping over a year ago. She used to do paper layouts but since having kids just didn't have the time for it.

Another challenge blog?

Can you all stand it? Yet another one. These blogs look like so much fun that I just had to try one out for myself. This is also going to be a very random blog where the challenges can be anything from very simple challenges, to ads, to photo challenges and even digi challenges. Anything goes, so the title says. So jump in, enjoy and share your creations with me when you are done. You can link them up here and post them over at .My Daughter's Wish (or wherever you normally post your work). Just don't forget to link us up here because if you don't link us we won't be able to ooh and ahh over your work and you won't have a chance of being the layout of the week. :o) Thanks for playing. I hope you have a lot of fun creating.
