Hot on the heels of yesterdays post I bring you details of a month of fun challenges & awesome prizes to celebrate the second birthday of the ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’ challenge site!

8 Happy Birthday

Not only is there the usual Movie Poster Challenge, but the DT has been divided into four teams, each setting a challenge of their own, along with inspiring example projects & prizes!!

9 Holiday Inn

First up…the August poster challenge, which this month is a Golden Oldie ‘Holiday Inn’ 

The criteria you need to include are…

1. Use sheet music on your page.

2. Use a two-tone title

3. Use Navy & Red on the page.

So, what are you waiting for?!!! Get creating & upload your entries via the inlinkz in THIS POST.

Here is my take on the poster…

10 Gaduand 2 Graduate 
Another photo from Lee’s graduation day!!! I was inspired by the navy & red theme & the two-tone title especially! I have to own up to an oops!! When I noted down the criteria for myself I wrote ‘map’ instead of ‘music’ PP…so the PP pleated around the journal block & on the bunting is map PP not music PP…Pure blonde moment!!! (blush blush!!)

Then we move on to the DT Teams Birthday Challenges…


Using the film poster for ‘to Gillian on her 37th birthday’ as your inspiration…include the criteria…

1. Use a house or home on your page somehow.

2. Use sand/sandpaper/sand coloured fabric

You have been busy,Sandi...and really like the way you've done the second LO.
We didn't go into the caves at Cheddar....at £17 decided it was too expensive....though we did go into the sweet factory....and managed a little purchase in there!
