Why did we start this blog? Svetlana Austin and Evgenia Petzer started this blog for the simple reason - they want to showcase and celebrate the creative talent we have in our beautiful country. At the same time, they want to share it with the rest of the world and be inspired by others. While the focus is on scrapbooking in Southern Africa, we hope that the challenges will attract scrappers from different parts of the world!!!!!!!!
Along with three other very talented ladies, I was approached to be one of the Designers for the Scrap Africa Challenge Blog. You can just imagine how ecstatic I was when I received the initial request......... I am really looking for to working with these ladies, they are some of the finest in the country!!!!!!!!
So, how does it all work:
Every 2 weeks, on Thursday, we will be piblishing a new challenge for you. You will have 3 weeks to complete the challenge. We will alternate the sketch challenge for layouts with theme challenges. For out theme challenges you can create any kind of scrap object (it can be a layout, a card or an altered project, as long as you follow the requirements of the challenge).
You can combine our challenges with challenges from other blogs. Just make sure that you do not combine similar challenges together. You cannot take part in two challenges on our blog with the same project (our challenges will overlap and therefore you cannot for example make a layout using a sketch and then enter the same layout into the theme challenge on Scrap Africa.
The design team will choose the best entries which will feature on Scrap Africa blog. We will also choose someone to be our guest designer for one of the challenges. We plan to have sponsors for our challenges. After every two challenges (a sketch and a theme challenge) we will randomly draw the prize winner among the participants. We think that this new venture is something worth celebrating.
But wait a moment. What is a celebration without a gift?
