Default SBVC88...Abruptly August...8.5.09

SBVC88...Abruptly August...8.5.09

First off "THANK YOU" to my wonderful guest hostesses Tam, Diana, Patti and Joyce Ann - you each did such a FAB job!!!

I say "Abruptly August" because I can't believe how fast this summer and year are going! I'm back from vacation and so much has happened.

This will be my last Variety challenge as hostess. I was selected to join the Design Team on Scrap Attack Scrapbooking and there is no way I can be active on both sites. It's been wonderful getting to know each of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing my challenges the past 2 years! If you missed any, please feel free to go back and do them at any time.

If you are interested in joining the SBCT and being the Scrapbook Variety Hostess (or have an idea for a different challenge) or know someone that might be interested, I encourage you to contact Sally a.k.a Salster.

Another fun month of crazy (and some not so crazy) holidays to choose from. Below is your list of holidays. Your challenge is use a holiday as a layout prompt - your picture does not need to be taken on the day, you don't have to use the holiday anywhere on your page - but you may of course.

my sample:

Colorful
I did this layout for the Wacky challenge last August on Scrap Attack Scrapbooking.

Have a great week! I look forward to seeing your layouts.

you can find all submissions for this challenge here: SBVC88



SBC's Information Thread:

Everything you need to know to participate!

The OPD (One Page Doc, aka: Master Challenge Thread) that includes all challenges on one page for your printing convenience can be found here: OPD

If you have any questions please feel free to contact any one of the SBCT (scrapbook challenge team)via pm or simply post your question in this thread.

Hey Peggy! Happy for you starting this new adventure. You are one awesome page maker. Surely you won't stop hanging out and uploading from time to time, right? Or we'll just have to see you over there.

thanks Joyce Ann! I'm not sure how often I'll get back over here. We have a crop coming up in a couple weeks so I'm working on my assignments today, then of course the monthly DT layouts, plus being active on the board. Somewhere in there I suppose I'll need to do laundry, housework and oh yes feed DH and Katie. In other words, I just don't know yet.

Oh no, Peggy! I'm so selfishly sad to hear your news! I've been so fond of your weekly challenges--you hosted my very first scrapbook challenge on SCS--I feel like I'm losing a friend. Even though I didn't do the variety challenge every week, I always check them out and am always delighted with your creativity and talent. You well deserve the honor at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking, and I know you'll do a fabulous job, but we will sure miss you here! (understatement on my part!) Best of everything, and I'll just have to regularly pop over to see your stuff at your new *home!*

Thanks for all you've done here on SCS--you're the best!! [sniff!!]

thank you Donna! I've missed you doing my challenges, but I KWYM about looking your MOJO, it happens to everyone!

The new DT is awesome and I'm having fun getting ready for our first "reveal" and the crop coming up. come an join us.

Something to note, there are not only SB challenges but also a few card challenges. No judging, the prizes are the luck of the draw. So, don't feel intimidated, come an play.

Well...the pull of digi is just too strong to resist. I've made another page for this month and it will be in honor of Aug 1 Friendship Day. DGS seems to make friends wherever he goes!
