What is "Scrap that Poetry?"

With a love of poetry since a young age, a husband who writes beautiful poetry and being a teacher who loves to read, combine all that with my love of scrapbooking and you have the birth of a new Challenge Blog.

Scrap That Poetry blog will have 2 challenges a month based on poetry.

The first challenge will begin on October 1st.
Scrappers will use a word or verse of poetry for inspiration in their layouts.
