1st Anniversary Challenge

Can you believe that Scrap That Poetry is 1 year old today???
I cannot!  I did not think that 1 year ago that the blog would have so many followers and people who play along with us!  What fabulous design team and guest designers I have had working to make this blog wonderful!  Thank you to each of you who come and read our blog, play along or just stop by to say hi!
We love and appreciate you!

On to our challenge...
We are excited to bring to you the poem...
The Rock Cries out to Us
by Maya Angelou

Heidi, design team member, and co-founder of Sketchy Thursdays
has so graciously created a sketch just for us at STP!
You do not need to use the sketch for this challenge, but we thought it may inspire you as well as the poem!
Rules for the challenge...
Use inspiration from the poem to create a layout, card, project, etc.
Link your layout to the comment section of this post or email your layout to me at
Winner of the challenge will receive a RAK from me, Jennifer.
I will be giving away some fabulous Stampin up! Products.

I am so excited to have Jeanet join us as our guest designer for this challenge...

Check out her blog here
I always love your work... so excited to have you join us for this special challenge!!!
Here is what the design team created...





We are sad to see a few designers leaving us after this challenge.  We bid a fond farewell to Julie, Shazza, Michelle and Nikki.  We have loved having you.  I will be announcing the 3 designers that were chosen for our design team on Monday, October 4th!  Check back to see who they are!
Don't forget you have until October 14th at 10 am EST to link your project to this comment section.
Winner receives a Stampin Up Rak from me as well as the chance to guest design with us for the November 1st challenge!
You are welcome to use the sketch if you wish!
Thank you again Heidi!
Happy Anniversary STP!
