Hello! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and had lots of fun with us during our Christmas in July celebration. Please join me this afternoon for a fun speed scrap! I will post the story here at 2 pm Eastern and you will have 1.5 hours to complete your layout. I will be available to answer any questions, and if my internet cooperates, we will be in the chat room as well. Hope to see you here!

We are in the chat room, but here is the speed scrap story we are using today:

Santa is wrapping presents for Mrs. Clause. He has picked out 3 pretty papers to wrap the presents with. Santa cut one paper into a rectangle and left the others square. His first present is 3 picture frames. When Mrs. Clause opens the second present, she will need to fill it with a bunch of flowers. Santa's third present is small but fun. He knows Mrs. Clause loves stickers and chipboard, so he got her a bunch of alphabets and badges. He spent the afternoon wrapping the presents and making them as pretty as could be. He used lots of tape and some ribbons. He even wrote Mrs. Clause a nice note. He put all of the presents under the tree, where the shadows from the fireplace caught the paper and made it shine. No doubt the memories made from this Christmas will be saved forever!

It is up to you to interpret the story and make a scrapbook page. You have until 3:45 pm Eastern to post your layout and qualify for points this weekend. If you already have enough points you can still play along, and if you have your layout posted by tomorrow morning you will get the participation prize :)

OK well I am not finding stickers or chipboard so it is taking some time to finish. I will have mine done for the prize but not the points. Thank you for the challenge!

I could fudge a little on the time if you are close :) really any alpha or word art would work! Can't wait to see your page :)
