Default SIC87 (11/29/10) - Persnickety Holiday Preparations

We’re well into the holiday season! I hope all of you who celebrate enjoyed your Thanksgiving! Now that we’re almost into December, I’m sure you’re gearing up for any holidays you celebrate during the upcoming month!

I had planned to post a challenge about holiday preparations and, lo and behold, I was pleased to find just such a challenge being offered at Papers & Pixels—with a $25.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE offered as a PRIZE!! I thought I’d turn this into this week’s inspiration challenge so everyone will have a chance to win this generous prize! Both paper and digi scrappers are welcome to play! Read on…

Some of you may remember Laura Boetto who hosted the digital scrapbooking challenge here on SCS for a while. Laura is now a writer & contributor to a new online magazine and website called Papers & Pixels. From now until the deadline of December 6, Persnickety Prints, through Papers & Pixels, is generously offering a $25.00 Gift Certificate (including 12x12 prints) to one of the lucky participants posting a page in the Papers & Pixels gallery.

Persnickety Prints is a professional photo processing lab & studio doing business for 23 years in Orem, Utah; & for the past seven years, has been an online business as well. I know of a number of extremely talented paper crafters on Splitcoast Stampers who are customers of Persnickety Prints. [Read more about Persnickety Prints here.]

Here is a summary of the challenge:

The Challenge: Create a scrapbook layout about one of your holiday traditions that you’re persnickety about. (The word “persnickety” has a long history and, by most accounts, dates back to Scotland where it was used to describe a person or business that required painstaking care in everything they did. That’s exactly how Persnickety Prints handles all of its orders and customers.) This could be about how painstakingly you set your holiday dinner table, or how fussy you are about wrapping your gifts. You must use the word “persnickety” somewhere on your layout. You may use photos, papers and elements of your choice. The challenge is open to digital and paper crafters.

To be eligible for the prize, the deadline to upload your entries to the Papers & Pixels gallery is December 6, 2010. [Note: Your page must be uploaded to the Papers & Pixels gallery to be eligible for the prize. We’d also love to see your page here in the Scrapbook Inspiration gallery! You may post a page anytime here on SCS (Use keyword SIC87.)]

More details on the contest information and posting your page in the Papers & Pixels gallery can be found here and the gallery is here. Please submit only one entry per person.

I hope you'll get some time to play!!
