challenge #1: me, myself and i!

Welcome to "The Goodie Box" and our *first ever* challenge! We are so excited about the Goodie Box blog and hope that you will ALL come and play. The concept is simple...every month we'll issue a fun scrapbooking challenge and whoever is chosen as the winner will receive a "goodie box" in the mail.

Sound good?


So without further ado, let's get right down to it. This month's challenge is:

"Me, Myself and I".

You got it, we want to see layouts made by YOU, about YOU! Anything goes with this can do a layout focusing on who you are today, or maybe you want to scrapbook that special childhood photo that you've been meaning to get to for so long. You can do a page about your wedding day, or maybe you just have a special story to tell. Like we said...anything goes, as long as it is about YOU! AND...somewhere on your page we want you to add a little bling...whether you use rhinestones, sequins or glitter, we don't care. We just want to see a little *sparkle* somewhere on your page! So let's get goin'!

Here are our layouts for this month's challenge:

"Waiting" by Kim Loewen

"Look At Me" by Talia Audenart

So all you gotta do once you've finished your layout is post a link to it in the "comments" section below along with your name. It doesn't matter "where" your layout is online--your blog or any online gallery is great, we just want to be able to see it!

Keep in mind as we are choosing a winner that this is just for FUN! We'll pick winners according to originality and creativity...whatever catches our eye and represents the current challenge well. We are open to all kinds of styles and page sizes. Traditional and digital scrapbookers are welcome, too. We just want the Goodie Box to be a place where we can share fun ideas and make new scrappin' friends.

Oh, ya....

and give away FREE STUFF!


the deadline for the "Me, Myself and I" challenge is Friday, April 27th and we will announce the winner on Monday, April 30th. One of you will be receiving a goodie box in the mail!

Stay tuned till next week when you'll get a "sneak peek" at this month's Goodie Box, and until then, have fun scrappin'. We can't wait to see your pages!!

:)Talia & Kim

(note: If you have any questions or concerns you can email us at

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone so far for checking out the blog and for even posting your layouts already. You guys ALL rock!! Kim and I love seeing the response to the Goodie Box and we can't wait to see more of your pages come in. Yay! We really couldn't do this without you!
I'm so glad to see people excited about this month's challenge...we definately forget to scrapbook about ourselves....remember, your kids will enjoy seeing pages of you, too! Someone asked if you could submit more than 1 layout/challenge and that's totally fine...if you're on a roll, then go for it! Also, if you don't have a blog or online gallery to post your page, then you can just email us your layout to don't want anyone to be left out!
We are having fun brainstorming ideas for the goodie boxes, but we also hope that sponsors will make donations for the goodie boxes, if you are interested in making a donation, once again, just email us at
Thanks, everyone!!!

Hi! This challenge is such a great idea. Here is the link to my page that I recently completed. The (minimal) journal reads "JUST ME...that's all I can be." Thanks for letting me share!!!

Katie said...

oops! try this link...

Michelle said...

I did a ME layout a few weeks ago. Check it out here:

Loving the new blog so far :)

Helena said...

Here's my ME layout.

It's in Italian so I translate it for you. It's about what those papers/colors mean to me:
For Me
Orange is the joy of living
The flowers are the creative part in me
Turquoise is the family, a secure harbor
Pink is the love I feel for my children
All together they represent how I feel today: serene for the united family I have, joy for having so many friends, satisfaction for my job and gratitude for the health.

Kim said...

I don't have many photos of myself because honestly I just hate them, but this sounds like fun. I think I will dare to play!

Ann C said...

Cool idea! I usually hate pictures of myself but I managed to take a decent one in the's the layout :)

~Telah said...

I did this two page layout recently for a circle journal and thought it would work well with this challenge.

Thanks for letting me "play"!

Maurita said...

OK gals here is my layout. Wanted to be supportive and get a page on your site. Poor photo (taken by my 3yr old) but i love that it shows my life from his perspective.

Heather said...

thanks for the game! that goodie box looks delish! here's mine.


Nikki Workman said...

Okay Kim, the scrapbooking world is officially small enough that I can bump into a fellow Clarkdale wardy and her latest venture. Cool I've been in primary since I moved in, this is an oppurtunity to get to know you a bit. I hope to participate in a future challenge (cuz April is kinda kickin my scrappin keister).
