October Reader Challenge: Scrapbook with a Sign

Jennifer Wilson

I’m your guide here at Simple Scrapper. Our community helps people find what fills you up and fits your life in memory keeping.

October 10, 2012

Team member Ronnie Crowley will be sharing ideas and inspiration from our team for the reader challenge each month.

This month’s Simple Scrapper challenge:

Use signage in a new layout.

The sign can be a picture of a sign, a sign embellishment,  or a piece of sign scrapbooking paper. If it’s a sign you can use it to complete this challenge.

Team Inspiration

The team has provided a bumper crop of layouts for you this month. Make sure you make it to the end or you’ll miss out on some great ideas.

Mandy Ross took some great pictures of hot air balloons while driving and luck would have it they included a sign so they work perfectly for this assignment. (credits)

Aimee Maddern used a picture of a sign in her layout. I love all those horizontal lines she created with tape. (credits)

Jean Watson Manis had the perfect spot for taking a picture for this assignment and went out especially to get it climbing up a hill for the perfect angle. She did treat herself to a pie as a reward!  (credits)

For my  sign layout I decided to use a really cool sign embellishment I found among my digi supplies. (credits)

Lisa Corbin-Polak included lots of different signs in her layout. A picture, sign paper, and sign embellishments. (credits)

Valerie  Mangan created a perfect travel layout with her sign pictures. (credits)

Sue Althouse used a picture of a heritage sign to provide extra information on her layout. (credits)

Margrethe Aas Johnsen had the chance to visit Auschwitz on a recent trip. Having been to the Dachau concentration camp her layout is a perfect representation – her sign says it all. (credits)

She also did a second layout with signs to give you some extra inspiration. (credits)

Julie Aldridge provides us with another two page layout with her pictures of graffiti covered signs. I love the variety of the angles her pictures were taken at. (credits)

Michele Holcomb took a trip to a new part of town and took some great sign pictures to record her visit. (credits)

Pam Lozano was inspired by a blog post by CathyZ to create this page and what a great sign she found to support her story. (credits)

Amy Kingsford makes me want to go to the  Cracker barrel for dinner tonight with her layout. (credits)

Jess Forster created a great layout about Paris with her Metro sign. (credits)

Jeryn layout maybe the last but she really makes me want to visit this winery. (credits)
