Okay ladies here is your first sneak peek at some of the AMAZING stuff I told you was being donated to us. I was so excited when FED-EX dropped this off, that I had to take a picture. You can see in one of the photo's a little teaser of what is to come for one of our challenges & a sneak peek at the prize. Can anyone guess who this is from? I am going to be soooooooo JEALOUS of anyone who wins this awesome prize! I will be posting more photos of some other wonderful items I have been receiving at my door & in the mail. Remember just because you can't come to the kick-off party doesn't mean you can't participate in the fun.

What Is Project Scrapbook '09?

You are probably asking yourself: what is Project Scrapbook '09? Project Scrapbook '09 is an idea that came to me a few months ago when Lifetime brought back the show Project Runway Season 6 (Thursday August 20, 2009 10/9c) with Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn.

The show is based on 16 clothing designers, who every week have a challenge to complete & depending on how they do, someone is eliminated from the show (we will not do an elimination). I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a spin on this & do it with scrapbooking. I can not take all of the credit. Ruth Nickle, a friend of mine, came up with the idea last season to do on her blog with the show. I LOVED doing it & wanted to do it again this year, but Ruth just had another baby and between diapers & 1 toddler it was just too much to take on.
So I decided to do one myself! Lucinda Fish & Sherry McGill will also be helping me run things & putting this together. We have got a lot of really EXCITING things to come! Each week we will be posting on the blog what that weeks challenge will be (based on that week's show challenge). You will have 1 week to complete the challenge & then you will e-mail a photo of your completed project to us to post on the blog to be voted on. That weeks winner will receive an AMAZING prize from one our GENEROUS sponsors.
