The winner this week is

CENGLAND!!!

Peamail me with your name and address!!!!



Prompts will now be open for two weeks!

I've decided to host a bi-weekly (twice a month) challenge thread here at Two Peas. The more you play, the more chances you have to win a small scrapping goody from me (and some others who are donating prizes!!) and the more pages you will get done!

Please link up your creation in this thread for a chance to win and I will also have a challenge box you can check during the upload process.
Look for **Stash Busters Challenge**

**You can combine all these prompts. Each prompt you use is good for one chance to win...so use 3 prompts on one layout = 3 chances to win!***

We all like to get comments on our pages so if you are playing along please try to find the time to return the favor!

Welcome Jill (if I may call you that?)

This is such a fun and supportive thread, I now have the confidence to jump in and even post LOs that aren't challenge related!

All I can say is, get stuck in!

Keep meaning to play along as I'm always inspired by the layouts and ideas you share, just never get round to it. determined this weekend to have some scrappy time and first on my list is a page inspired by waleska's layout.
Can I make a suggestion though that you put links to the original layout next to it so we can then link in our gallery posts to credit the original artist. I've just found the layout on the basic grey blog as it was a recent one but not all will be easy to find.

I don't always do a direct link back to the original post because the TOU on TwoPeas doesn't permit links to other sites....so I try not to abuse the privilege of running the challenge here and only sparingly link to sites that don't sell product. I always credit the scrapper though and you could do the same if their work inspires you.

Senoritascrapper - if I had a blog, I would totally participate! But sadly, I don't have one.

Any of you interested in doing a Christmas in July challenge? I thought maybe all the regulars could mail something small to Marianne for the "grand prize." Just a thought. Thought it might be fun.

Here's a layout for prompt #3 (inspired to use mist on my layout) and prompt #5:


signs of spring

Let's keep this going!

I've got a bunch of stuff so really not necessary. I just do a small something so it's not costly for postage either.


I think I saw a Christmas in July challenge posted.

Hi, ladies. I'm back with another LO from yesterday.

Prompt 5 (Glitter Girl #69, NSD Scrappy Tool Belt, NSD GG Inspired - Shannon Tidwell) and if it counts, the use fabric challenge on Shimelle's blog: Handmade Happiness

ScrapNatya, that's great that you're keeping up with LOAD. I'm doing my own LOAD this month, too, which is a bit insane since it's report-writing season this month (I'm an elementary teacher) so I have a tonne of work to do already but so far it's been going well. I told myself that if I managed all 31 LOs, I would treat myself to an extra big 2Peas purchase come June!

Thanks to all for the congrats!!! I am so jazzed! Got to tell you that I am seriously bummed that I haven't had any time to scrap yet for this time around! It is the end of the school year and there are just lots of things going on! Lots of appointments too. It just has been SUPER busy! I am hoping to be able to contribute SOMETHING this time around but if not, I will be back in next time. Life slows down considerably after next week.

Okay, so I watched Corrie's 213 in 2013 video from last Monday this morning and it totally inspired me to do a similar grid and embellishment LO. I've decided I'm going to use this as the cover page to my 'me' album.

Prompt 5: NSD Scrappy Tool Belt and GG Inspiration challenges and if the Shimelle blog challenges count, scrapping yourself and using paint - My Story...

I've been keeping up with LOAD so far, just need to repost the LOs! And incorporate these challenges in too!

Hi all! I've been so focused on getting my NSD challenges done, I have not specifically been thinking this one! It turns out several are appropriate for some of the 2peas challenges from this week...and now it's time to create some more for here! That's what I'm doing with my Mothers Day!

Kiwijesta, oh yes, we all refer to it as report writing season at my school. I've got a start on mine but not much done so far - we've had so many holidays these last two weeks, I've not been at work. But I really will need to buckle down and get them done over the next few weeks, as they're due for completion June 3. Not sure how I'll keep up with LOAD at that point but I'll do my best.

So today I swapped out doing a LO for my LOAD and made four cards instead. ScrapNatya, I'm not sure if cards count for the challenges but I made these thank you cards for some friends for helping me through the trauma of having my wallet stolen the other week and they have gratitude writing inside. It's cool if they don't count but thought I'd ask.

Prompt #2 (gratitude): Thank You & You're a Star
