Welcome to our National Scrapbooking Day

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

Something that Let's Scrap is known for is scrapbooking challenges thru the month,

play along with not only our special challenges to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day
but our normal sketch challenges on the 1st and the 15th... lots of great sketches and great

So keep checking out the blog for the newest challenge!!! ALL challenges

Sooooo we are starting off the 

Scrapbook Frenzy Challenge

This is something new for us, we teamed up with Clique Kits. We advertised this event 
and those that wanted to play along purchase a kit from Clique Kits. (I have been told if you 
want to purchase the kits they have a few left and you would need to contact Erica at and the payment would be made thru PayPal). So there are rules to this Scrapbook Frenzy Challenge and here they are:

You must use the stuff in your kit to work with the following sketches... then with the left overs (for a separate prize) make up as many cards as you can... no use having scraps with these beautiful papers!!! SO here are the sketches designed by Denise van Deventer for this challenge:





No sketches for the cards just play and see how many you can make up!!

Make sure you link up to the main blog page on the right side each sketch is labeled.. you MUST do all 4 sketches to be in the draw for the Clique Kits gift certificate. There will also be a linkz for the cards that you can put as many cards as you want up there.. ;0) 

Come back and check out the next challenge on May 8th!!

We hope to see alot of you playing along with us on these challenges thru the month and having fun with it all!!

SKETCH 5-1-15

Hello Everyone!

Are you ready for a new sketch? We have one for you but first I want to tell you a bit about our sponsor for this sketch challenge.

I decided to post a little about me as I find it is nice to put a face to the name on the internet!
My name is Jodie .
I am married and have 5 beautiful children, Skye, Isabella, Desiree, Sean, and Michael. 
Add a dog a cat and a hubby to that .....a housefull!

I have been designing graphics for 9 years, mostly for those who digitize, 
and now venturing into this new idea of digi stamps. 
I love to draw and love to see were my designs go and how they are used. 
I find making people smile with my graphics very rewarding!

For many many years I drew mostly cutesy kids graphics, alot of which you’ll find here.
But my latest passion is my cranky old boots....
Stella ,Gus, Margaret and the Gals who came after them.
I just LOVE to create them and they seem to be a favorite!

What else can I say? 
The name Bugaboo did I come up with it? 
Well...... Bugaboo as that is a nickname i have for my kids sometimes.
I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. 
I enjoy reading V.C Andrews, love anything to do with crafts (I just wish I had the time to do them!) 

I love to draw (obviously) write poems, LOVE Bon Jovi, 
and am in the middle of writing a kids book I would love to see published one day 
Anyhow, that’s a bit about me....Enjoy your stay! And thanks for visiting!
I always love to hear from you!


And this is the prize that you can win.

Here is the sketch.

Look what our amazing Design Team has come up with to inspire you all.

We hope that we have inspired you to play along too and we look forward to seeing your layouts in the gallery.

Till next time - Happy Scrapping!
