First Challenge on the Slice of Life

Today is the DAY!!! Are you ready 'to capture life and to create art'. Our challenges will be inspired from the fabulous celebrity scrapbook artist Ali Edwards book 'Life Artist' .Ali quotes "Scrapbooking is about life. About capturing the life you are living, have lived and will live. It is about creating art from the photographs, words, documents, and bits of this and that. Those things that help tell the stories of who you really are.... Scrapbooking is capturing Life, Creating Art". So good luck everyone as we embark on discovering the 'life artist' in all of us.

What a great competition this is! To capture your life and create art! Thats what I love about Scrapbooking and this is a wonderful competition to showcase your life art!

Today is the first of five competitions with a few bonus point competitions thrown in along the way! So look out for them!


There is so much more to life art than just traditional scrapbook pages and traditional sized photos. How many of you have scrapped outside your comfort zone and scrapped a 8.5 x 11 or a 12 x 6? How many of you have made the photo tell the story? Scrapping in other sizes can be exhilerating and can tell the story you are trying to create from a different perspective. Using a larger than life photo can also evoke emotion by telling the story without using words Criteria

For this challenge, Choose one of the following

1. Scrap in any other size except for the traditional 12x12

2. Scrap a photo no smaller than 5" x 7"

3. Combine both Bonus Points:

The DT have selected a secret technique or product. If you incorporate this in your layout this week, you are also elligible for bonus points

Here is Trudi's example! Isn't it gorgeous!

Can't wait to see what you all create!

Love Lisxx
