I have participated in a couple of speed scraps recently. Here are two of my pages.
The first one was for a speed scrap hosted by Leaving a Legacy Designs. I used a kit called "He Loves Me" available in Designs By Snowlady's store.
The prize for participating was a $5 gift card to Leaving a Legacy Design's store. I found two kits I fell in love with, so I got them both and just paid the extra $5. Want to see them? Ok. I can do that!
I got this kit
and this one

The next Speed Scrap was hosted by Double Trouble Scraps. The kit I used for this one is one I'm currently designing. It's called On The Prowl and who knows when I'll have it available for download. For free. Here on my blog. Eventually.
Aside from Speed Scraps, I've been trying to participate in a few of the other challenges on Stuff To Scrap. One of the funnest challenges is the Use It All Up Challenge. On that one, you get a kit for free and use everything in it for your layout. There is usually an option to buy the full kit. I'm still debating. I LOVE the full kit, but I really try to limit my purchases and I JUST bought the ones pictured earlier. We'll see. Here is the layout.
Want to see what the FULL kit looks like? Here it is. Click on the picture to go to the store.
Ok, this next page kind of touches on TWO different challenges. The one I made it for is called the Scraplift Challenge. It's pretty explanatory, esp if you actually digiscrap ever. The other challenge that it relates to is the Designer Darling challenge. Every year, Stuff to Scrap has a challenge for people who want to sell at their store. They have challenges and all the designers make kits that are then up for grabs. You also vote on your favorites. I instantly fell in love with this kit from Created by Jill Scraps called Just Me and the Girls and HAD to use it!! Go join Stuff to Scrap and check out the Designer Darling threads so you can download it!!! You should ALSO go there so you can see the layout I scraplifted.
LAST, but not by any means least, I LOVE the recipe challenge. This is what it sounds like. There is a list of instructions that you do in order and then you end up with an AWESOME page. I used the kit Heart's Desire from Scraps By Missy, but it's not in her store.
Want to hear something crazy? I'll ALSO be joining the Road Trip this month. It's been a long time since I've had a kit freebie, but these colors were irresistible!!!!
