Story/Technique: Choose a favorite scrapbook page and do a redo. Whether you choose to scrap-lift your own layout or re-tell a story use a page you love, or one you don’t, as your inspiration and see where it takes you. (Looking for a different story angle as you scrap-lift a layout? Tell a story involving mail and be sure to use a ‘stamp’.)

In 1998, long before facebook and social media, I started an email loop for grandmas who were scrapbookers. I posted an invite on the AOL message board and got immediate responses. Most of us started our mornings with a cup of coffee and reading our many daily emails; we held online crops and challenges; we laughed, we cried, we encouraged and supported each other through life’s trials. We watched our grandkids grow from toddlers through high school, college and marriage. Many babies were born over the years and we all feel like honorary grandmas to all of them. Some of us finally met in person at a 4-day crop in 2009. We’re just a bunch of wild & crazy grandmas, brought together by our love of scrapbooking and still sharing in each other’s lives.

Be sure to upload your layout to Flickr by midnight Pacific time.
