Eco-Trip (Roadmap to Scrap) Challenge

As part of our Design Star Contest, we were asked to host a challenge and provide an alpha as a participation prize. One of my favorite challenges at ScrapMatters is the Roadmap to Scrap. But this isn't any old regular RTS, there's a little twist!

April 22nd is a favorite holiday of mine…Earth Day! So in honor of our planet, I thought I would use eco-friendly principles to guide our eco-trip. Your LO does not have to be Earth Day themed, but you’ll be applying some green principles as you create.


1. Choose 2 or more photos or you can duplicate a single photo
2. Arrange the photos so that they are not touching each other. (do you separate your recyclables?)
3. Use at least 3 papers (stands for the three pillars of green living: reduce, reuse, recycle)
4. Add a string and embellish it – if it is already embellished, good for you! (embellish your world with flowers and beautiful things, not litter)
5. Use a combo font/alpha for your title (Together we can make a difference)
6. Including something green in your LO or something from nature
7. Reuse something in a new way – recoloring, blending, etc.
8. Add something recyclable: metal, cardboard, newsprint, plastic (all other paper types are excluded)

In order to reach your destination, you MUST have all 8 things in your layout. Be creative and if you use something that meets more than one requirement, lucky you!

Here’s my LO that I created using these instructions (and my Happy Earth Day to You kit)!

You will have ONE WEEK (Deadline: midnight, April 20th) to scrap your layout. Post it to the ScrapMatters Gallery AND in the forum here to get your participation prize.

You will each receive this super cute Earth Day Alpha for completing this challenge (alpha coordinates with my Round 2 and 3 DS entries Happy Earth Day to You)

I hope you can come with me on this Eco-Trip, and I can’t wait to see what you create!
