Check this out: BASB Challenge. What you just saw is the new challenge site that me and a few of my friends have started. It is still being tweaked, but it is getting closer to perfection every day. Thank you, Liz! The first challenge is led by Judi and her challenge is to create a layout/project with the theme of First. When we all started talking about starting a challenge blog one of the driving forces behind it was Aleida Franklin. The name BASB came from her and stands for Bad Ass Scrapbookers. People, who knew Aleida, are now laughing. This attitude certainly describes her perfectly. For those of you, who didn't know her, the attitude has nothing to do with being mean. Aleida accepted everyone and was a HUGE supporter of everybody in the scrapping world. The attitude is all about being who you are, playing fair, giving credit where credit is due and believing you and your creations are all that. It's a good thing. The first theme is based on Aleida's circle journal, which is FIRST. Judi couldn't have chosen a better theme to start the ball rolling.
Above is my take on the theme. Jake and I spent last Saturday together. He had the choice as to what he wanted to do on his special day. He chose going out and photographing things. This kid is after my heart. I was completely amazed with him. He has a great eye for subjects. At the age of ten, he far surpasses my photography skills. Should I be sad about this? LOL!
Whether you are a veteran challenger or have never tried a scrap challenge in your life, I hope you will try this or one of the future BASB challenges out. It will be a safe, friendly and fun community. How could it not with me there? LOL!
