At a Hardware Store

Remember this month's blog challenge at Blue Moon Scrapbooking?

If you participate, you have a chance to win a $40.00 GC to the Blue Moon Store!! Sound like fun??

So here are the details for the challenge:

You live in a rural County, in fact so rural the closest scrapbooking store is many miles away and you get the chance to shop only once in a while. You shop online normally, at… joy, oh joy...Blue Moon Scrapbooking!! On a whimsy, your neighbor says “I’m going to town, want a lift?” Well, you hop in and the neighbor says “I’ll drop you off and pick you up in a bit”. Fabulous – except you have been dropped off at the hardware store with only cardboard shapes, nuts and bolts, wire and mesh… available. Time to push the creativity button as you work with the supplies from the hardware store.

The design team played with Donna Salazar shapes and borders which are fabulous corrugated cardboard shapes and so much fun to create with!

I created another LO this week using those cardboard shapes and products from the Natural Living Kit.

I covered the shapes with the paper in the kit. Then sanded and inked the edges.

I also used tape as a border around the photo.

Here is the finished LO!

And, then, because I still have sooooooo much product left from this kit....I created another LO!!!

I love this paper from 7 Gypsies and Graphic 45

Here are the details for the contest!

Have fun with it....and please...don't forget to upload your creation by March 20th to the Blue Moon Scrapbooking Gallery.


Upload a 4x6 with 72 resolution - this works best. If you're having issues uploading it's usually because the image is too big/large a file. Resize it and you're off to the races. If you have problems email

You can enter 1 layout per challenge.

Open to all US and International Scrappers.

We need at least 5 people to enter in order to choose a winner, so tell some of your friends to join in so someone will win the $40.00 BlueMoon Shopping Certificate.

A winner will be choosen the week of March 22nd.
