Challenge #1 – Something Simple


Welcome back to Real Life Scraps!  February is here and we – The Real Life Girls – are super excited that today kicks off our **first ever** monthly challenge.  Like I said, we are very excited and hope that you will join us this month and play along.  So here goes… 

In honor of Simple Scrapbooks we wanted to make our 1st challenge a “simple” one. So this month we want you to use the word simple on a layout.   Be creative and remember you can use any variation of the word. 

Here’s a peek at our layouts for this challenge and a little funny to go along with it. 


Simply the best



Notice anything about those titles?  We just shared our final layouts with each other the other day and then realized that we had used the same title “Simply The Best” from the Tina Turner song. We laughed so hard and decided that we were still going to put them up here to share with you. As you can see, both of our layouts have completely different meanings but as it turns out, we have both been singing Tina for the past few weeks.  Great minds think alike, right?  Bullet_Smiley_1

Just a few details about the challenge:  Feel free to submit any type of layout (paper, digital, or hybrid) or any size.  It is all a personal preference and we want you to feel the most creative with what you are used too.  You have until the last day of the month (February 28th) to submit your work.  Just leave us a comment on this post with a link to your work.  If you do not have a blog or online photo gallery, feel free to take a picture and email it to us – Brianna or Jamie – by the deadline.  We will be posting all of your work over in our gallery each month.  Oh and yes, feel free to submit more than once this month.  If you get on a roll with those “simple” layouts, keep them coming.  We will pick a winner on March 1st and of course there will be some fun scrappy prize involved!

We are looking forward to seeing all your “Simple” layouts this month.  Stay tuned for more inspiration and a peek at your prize in the weeks ahead. 

Happy Scrapping!

I am loving the new website! This is perfect for me b/c I need EASY! I love the idea of scrapping but never seem to get very far with any of my projects. I am looking forward to participating in the challenges and learning from your simple and straightforward tips!

Ok, first promise not to laugh!!! But I am going to hold my breath and post it anyway!
I am fairly new, and this is a perfect way for me to get better!
I'm just not fond of how the letters turned out.
