CRUSHES!

TADA! here we are! the first challenge of the Category Stories challenge blog! who is your crush? for whom do you have a burning desire hiding under your cool, calm exterior? what adorable bag, fantastic power tool or hunk of man love is in your mind? what person do you love and admire for all of her qualities (or maybe just a couple!)?

we are here to help you figure that out!

ALL SCRAPPING STYLES WELCOME - if you are minimalist or extremist, use Paper or work the Digital, go pen & paint crazy or keep it clean and simple, if you prefer to create ART or concentrate on the MEMORIES you are WELCOME HERE!!! Just have fun & enjoy making some pages that make YOU HAPPY!

this challenge blog is to give you great prompts to add to your albums, no matter what your style or skill level!

our storytellers share their secrets - some of the love is so overwhelming, they decided to do more than one layout!
