Check out this awesome kit - it is one of the participation prizes for the contest - you know you have to play now, right?
This kit is seriously full of natural wonders (clever title then, yes?). Just wait until you unzip it to play! Here's a LO that I did using just a small sampling from Natural Wonders.
Full details of the contest will be revealed in the ScrapMatters forum on May 1st.

And this Monday is going to get better! Britt is hosting a Speed Scrap at ScrapMatters today at 2pm Central. Check out your participation prize!If you can't make today's speed scrap, never fear! There's another one tomorrow at 8pm Central hosted by Andrea (chia). Denise created this cute mini as the PP. Those papers are a must have!
Another reminder that today is the last day of the ScrapMatters Design Star Challenges. Head on over to the forum and check out the awesome alphas you can win just for creating a LO. This is also the last day of the Design Star Contest...not sure when we'll find out the results, but wish me luck. There are so many talented designers out there that I am just happy that I have made it this far.

And here is a LO that I created with it...I so wanted to use the shoes, but couldn't figure it out. I'm sure I'll be making many more LOs with this kit anyway! I thought the colors were perfect for our little Iggy-Wanna.
And here are the 2 LOs that I did for Speed Scraps yesterday!
This first one is using a free template by Linz from the ScrapMatters Tuesday Template challenge, The Soldier's Wife by GingerScraps, a flower (recolored) from Like Totally Awesome, and a string (recolored) from Britt-ish Designs
This little LO was created for Haynay's SS (and Krista's stacked challenge). I used the cute boy kit Benjamin by Jeni Hopewell.

Here are 2 layouts that I created today. In these challenges, there is double dipping allowed too, so I was able to complete 4 challenges with only 2 layouts - SCORE!
This first LO is of some pictures and newspaper clippings that I have held on to for a very long time (almost 8 years, I guess!). Christine's photo challenge and GingerScraps new kit, The Soldier motivated me to get this scrapped. Then I stumbled upon Krista's stacked challenge and thought that would be a perfect look for all my clippings. I am really happy with how it turned out. I usually like to include some journaling, but it didn't seem to fit. I may create a second page with my thoughts, feelings, reflections from that day. I guess I should go dig out that journal.
This second LO is for Ro's template challenge (free template!) and Brianne's ABC Challenge - which is really a challenge! But I really like the way this one turned out as well.
Anyhow...go check out all the fun Design Star Challenges!
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!

I'm not a huge sports fan, but I did find these pictures of my failed attempt at softball back when I was in fourth grade.
