Leave Your Legacy challenges

For those of you who are new to the blog, you are probably wondering what the Leave Your Legacy challenges are...

Leave Your Legacy challenges first came about when I was sorting through some vintage photos of my parents. I realized that while I knew most of the Who's, Where's and When's of the images, there was information missing. Information about what my parents and relatives had been like in their lifetime.

So, with the help of my Just Cre8 design team, we started posting monthly challenges on the blog to encourage blog readers to begin scrapbooking more about themselves, thus Leaving a Legacy for their children and future generations.

At the start of the new year, with a resolution to create more layouts, I started the LYL challenges here on my blog, offering up prizes each month from the entries that were completed.

Starting this month, however, I'm changing things up! In talking to a few people, I've discovered that many people LIKE the idea of this challenge but life, as we all know, has a way of getting in the way of our scrapping time!

In light of that, I will continue to post a Leave Your Legacy challenge biweekly, but instead of choosing a winner monthly, I will offer THREE prizes at the end of the year! 

So how do you win?

It's easy - complete each of the challenges posted (click here a list of all the LYL challenge links) and link up your layout using Mr. Linky tools, in each post. You have until December 31st, 2011 to complete as many or as few as you wish.
At the end of the year, I will allocate ONE ballot for each layout you add to my blog. You may wish to complete some challenges more than once, to increase your chances! On January 1st, 2012, I will randomly draw two winners from the accumulated ballots!

I will also offer a GRAND prize for one lucky winner who completes EVERY challenge at least once and who posts a link on my blog. If there is more than one person who completes them all, I will randomly draw a winner from those individuals.

Doesn't that sound like fun?!?

Stay tuned for another LYL challenge tomorrow...

  1. I love that you're changing the submission criteria, I have done one layout and wanted to do more but couldn't do them in time to submit them. You're right, for many of us, scrapbooking is done in chunks of stolen time rather than consistent blocks. I LOVE the idea of these challenges, I find I rarely include any pages about myself so I am excited to show a little more "me" in my pages.


Thank you for your comments - I appreciate the feedback!
