ODBDSLC107 ~ Let's Scrapbook!

Welcome and happy National Scrapbook Day! Several of my friends will be scrappin' the night away tonight lovingly recording memories for future generations. Today, Our Daily Bread Designs wants to issue a special challenge. We want to see a scrapbook layout. One page or two, 8 x 10 or 12 x 12... let your imagination go wild!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, May 11th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, May 12th. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on nor will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them! As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, May 11th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC107. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

Here's my take on this week's challenge... (shhh... don't tell John I used a photo of us both... lol...)


This was taken a few years back when I completed my Masters. I used Our Daily Bread's latest set, Dreams. This set is perfect for graduation and/or retirement projects! Behind our photo I used a die stamped with the word graduate (from this set). I used the quote included by Eleanor Roosevelt as well. This quote was so fitting because for me going back to school was a dream come true! I had long wanted to be a teacher. Finishing this Masters program gave me the chance to student teach. Finally, I knew I could do it! And even though I am not in a classroom I don't regret a moment. It was such a blessing for me to complete the program!

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check out what my other Sister Sticks have for ya... Blessings...
