Check out Scrap Chicks

December 31st meant the end to a scappy place that I had called home for several years. Monica, the owner of ScrapFreak decided meet 2011 with a change of focus. While sad, I understand the continual struggle to find balance in life.
Luckily, a fellow freak, Shannon Bogan, has taken on a new adventure with Scrap Chicks. She asked me if I'd like to serve on her design team as she gets things off and running. I was happy to help out. Scrap Chicks has a forum, gallery, and (coming soon) monthly kit club.

Each Friday we have what we call Hen Party Friday. Each of the challenges are designed to help you develop your scrapping skills as well as having fun! At the end of the month, if you've completed all four challenges, you'll get a Golden Egg to add to your signature. And at the end of the year, if you have completed all the challenges for 2011, you'll get an even cooler Golden Egg to add to your signature plus you'll be entered into a drawing for prize from Scrap Chicks!

Today is our first challenge. Before we get started with 2011 let's take a look back on 2010. This week's Hen Party Friday Challenge is to create a layout/card/project that reflects on 2010. It could be the birth of a child, favorite movie, significant purchase. . . anything that will stick out in your head from 2010 when you look back in 10 years.
I did an 8 1.2 x 11 double page layout about my return to books in 2010. I created the collage in Picasa.

Journaling: In 2010 I renewed my love of books and reading. I started getting books from my local library and keeping track on I've always loved a good book, but this year I made the time to read. Something for me. I read 42 books this past year. Not all of them were great, but all of them made me think about something new. My favorites were the Millenium trilogy, Sarah's Key and The Hunger Games trilogy.
