This week we want you to step up on your own soapbox - take a moment to scrapbook about your own cause! Maybe your life has been touched by someone with cancer, or MS, or even Autism. What have your learned from them? We want to hear all about it!
Thanks for looking! Have A Great Day!!

I love the "sun burst" background! I saw it as a great way to add color & dimension to the card, without making it too bulky for mailing! Also for this challenge, we had to have at least one hand-cut element on the card.
Here are some of the design details from this layout...

And now for the fun announcement from the MDC Challenge Blog...
Our very own designer, Cathy Weider has organized MDC's very first blog roll! This will begin April 30th and will culminate on Mother's Day with a gallery of entries from designers and visitors alike. The theme, Mothers and Daughters Traditions, promises a bouquet of fabulous projects - cards, scrap book designs, gift and packaging ideas, altered projects, and much, much more.
Beginning on Thursday, April 30th, grab your cup of tea or coffee and a sweet roll and join us for our daily posts. We'll share fabulous projects, memories, and recipes, inspirational ideas for journaling scrap book pages and writing personalized messages for cards, and the secret language of flowers. Create a card or a treasure box, embellish a picture mat or a scrap book page, test your knowlege of trivia, or simply share a memory and you could win some of the fabulous blog candy we'll be offering each day. Sweet! Be sure to keep posted for further details!
And here is one more layout I wanted to share that I created for challenge #2 for the Urban Anthology Design Star Challenge.
These are the only two photos I have of my grandmother with my 2nd daughter, Emily. It is the one & only time she got to meet her before she passed away. I've had these photos for nearly 13 years, and have finally been able to sit and journal my feelings. TFL!
I used the Making Memories Animal Crackers collection, a mix of Prima flowers & Bazzil chipboard letters & flourish.
Have A Wonderful Day!!
