Spending time with friends is always a treat, especially when it all comes together with this Celebrate Amazing Friends layout.  The best part of this page is that it was a compilation or cooperative layout.  What?!  I know…let me explain.

At a recent crafting retreat I coordinated, I started hosting a scrapbook challenge for those interested in participating.  I provide a 12″ x 12″ background, 3 strips of a particular Designer Series Paper and one or two additional products that all MUST be used in some way on the page.  They have a plethora of stamps, dies, ribbon and embellishments from which to choose to enhance their design.  It is not a competition, but it certainly can get take on a fun, competitive nature.  Those pages were shown in this blog post.  As an added activity, I started with those same scrapbook challenge pieces, added some extra items and sent them around the room.
