Vacation season is upon us. Are you going on your dream vacation? Did you already go on it? Maybe you don't get to do it this year, but you still have a dream vacation to look forward to in the future! Do a project that reflects this dream (whether it has come true or not!).

Here are a couple pages from DT member Elizabeth's album from her dream trip to Alaska a few years ago!

We're looking forward to a season of wonderful flowers - from sweet peas to roses to paintbrushes and sun flowers. Now is the time to put them on your pages! You know what that means... this week's challenge is to:

Go flower crazy!

We've got flowers from Prima, Bazzil, Bo Bunny, Imaginisce, and other manufacturers! Grab a bunch and put them on your project! Or use one of our many flower punches and make your own! Alter them with ink, glitter, paint, whatever you'd like! Enjoy the flowers and share them with all of us!

Don't forget that you get a 15% discount on the flowers you buy for this challenge - all you have to do is let us know which challenge you're working on! And remember to leave a link in the comments so we can all praise the great work you've done with your flower power!

How does your mom inspire you? We've all got a mother. She's got her strengths, and probably her weaknesses. She gave us life, and probably oh so much more! Your challenge for this week is to

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!

Today was National Scrapbooking Day, and we celebrated in style at Keepsakes! If you weren't at our all day extravaganza, you missed a real treat! Chrissy Doolen, a representative from Fiskars, came and shared 6 projects with us over the course of 7 hours. Thank you, Chrissy! We came away with 6 finished projects, lots of great ideas, and door prizes galore!

Chrissy showed us step by step how to complete each of the projects.

Just one of the great projects we made today!

The crafting crowd.

Everyone hard at work and tuckered out by the end of the day.

Chrissy usually comes to do a day like this for us once or twice a year. It's worth it every time!

Here's your challenge for the week...

Head to Keepsakes and check out the many inspiring magazines. Choose one full of ideas and projects you like! Then relax as you settle in at home with a nice cup of coffee, flip through it, and get inspired. Then, take it a step further and act on that inspiration by making a project inspired by the magazine. When you link it to the blog, be sure to let us know what magaizne and what page inspired you! We can't wait to see what you liked!
