Go For It (Again)


Yesterday I made the decision to apply to become a DT member on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.

My kit "Go For It" was counterfeited from "Forecast" the April Kit from Cocoa Daisy.
I named it "Go For It" because that is EXACTLY what I'm doing by applying to CKCB.

Forecast
Go For It

Today is National Scrapbooking Day and there are  loads of challenges being set all over the world to celebrate.

Well the second part of my application to CKCB is

Create a challenge, make a project for that challenge

falls perfectly (don't you think?) to join in with challenge setting. 
I must admit, I came up with a few ideas before settling on this one.

I've been scrapbooking for about 5 years now and, once in a while, I will look at an old layout and think "OMG, did I really make that?"
Well, I suppose, I was a beginner, the supplies were fewer, I shopped at Hobbycraft and I used the freebies out of the earlier scrapbook magazines.

So, I have set myself the following challenge...

Go to my first ever scrapbook layout and recreate it using my "Go For It" kit

Will you join me and show me yours? 

You could scraplift it or just competely rip it apart (not literally) and start again.

So, go on, join me and GO FOR IT...

 I don't really want to show you my first layout but I suppose that is the whole idea of this challenge, to see if I have progressed!!!
I certainly hope I have!

So, I know my first scrapbook album was from our holiday to Vancouver this time 5 years ago. I'm not sure which page was my first so I've just chosen one from the album.


Look at all those lovely cut out pieces from the magazine freebies!!!
I didn't even have a story on this page.I know one person who is telling me off right now!
