Earlier this week I told you about Scrap Shotz Sping Fling crop this weekend and the planned ScrapShotz Gives Back challenge, which involves ScrapShotz donating $5 to the Canadian Cancer Society for every layout completed for the challenge. Well, the crop is happening now and the challenge has been posted and the giving keeps on growing! Board member Lacintia has offered a generious RAK to be awarded by a random draw to one of the lucky participants, while board member Dea has extended the giving through her blog. She's going to match ScrapShotz donation on her behalf and is also offering to give $1 for everyone that posts on her blog after completing the challenge! How cool is that!
And here's a chance to win some prizes. Do you like to write? During the month of April Scrapbooking.com Magazine, a free online magazine, is running a National Scrapbook Day Essay Contest. In 400 words or less tell what scrapbooking means to you from one of two topics - 1. Why I scrapbook or, 2. The one thing I want people to remember about my scrapbooks is...Why? Can be submitted through their form online and must include one layout or photo. They're looking for good content, not good form. They have editors that will help you tell your story in good form. First place prize has a value of $600, second place $300, and third place $125.
Here's a couple of links to projects you could make that would make great gifts. Erika, Stampin' Mama, has this special Bake it, Make it & Take Feature every once in a while and the feature this time was a Muffin in a basket. The post includes instructions to make the basket and the recipe for the muffins. In this post she gives instructions to make a neat CD tin Mini book .
