    Love this challenge, have a photo already printed that will be perfect for it that I will use at a crop I am off to tomorrow….

  2. dogmatix Says:

    Too many things I love :) but do I have a picture of one of them, I wonder? Think tonight, I will be dreaming of LOs and paper :)

  3. Linda S Says:

    Oh what to choose. I love so many things and people in my life. I am really going to take your advice and try to scrapbook something different that I love. Thanks again!

  4. Kristin Says:

    Right now I am loving your blog and this wonderful scrapbook weekend! I would’ve never thought I could feel so absolutely inspired and like such a part of a community doing a crop on-line like this! And yes, I totally second the pink tree love!

  5. kate bucci Says:

    Loads of things I love…but most of them are already recorded in some way or another. I shall have a think and tackle this one later! x

  6. Trisha H Says:

    Great topic that can be approached in so many ways…hmmm, the wheel are turning!

  7. EllieA Says:

    I’ve just got back from adventures in the city w/my brother & the house is empty as they are having fun as well. I am so excited to get my scrapbook on! Thank you so much for putting these fun challenges together.

  8. Jill Says:

    Fun one! Of course I thought of my kids, but I’ve certainly done that before. I will have to think on this one!! Have a great night Shimelle and thanks so much!

  9. Sarah S Says:

    This was brilliant for me and I knew exactly what I was going to do as soon as I read the challenge. Thank you xx

  10. Jane Says:

    I’ve never had a title for a layout as “I heart …” – hmmmm perhaps I should!! Thanks for the nudge.

  11. Christine Rickert Says:

    Got my first challenge done and my muse curled up all ready to snooze on the couch. Get up! We have another challenge from Shimelle! Loved scrapping this weekend so far. All challenges are different and interesting. Thanks.

  12. Charity Says:

    Love your layout…..what a great challenge! I can’t wait to get my scissors and paper out.

  13. Kim Strother Says:

    WOW, you gave us so many great challenges today! I’m glad we have the week to work on them!

  14. Jennifer Smith-Sloane Says:

    I love this challenge and can’t wait to get started and also see what all that you create as well! Keep on scrapping girls! We are all getting so much done! Every layout counts as more of the story being told!

  15. Shannon H. Says:

    This will be great. I have many, many, many layouts about people I love. Might have to do something different and make a page about something I love. Great layout also!

  16. ConnieC Says:

    Mine isn’t an earth-shattering “heart”. But it’s a memory that I wanted to record.

  17. Carrie Says:

    Hmmm, brain is turning, judging by my 40+ Pinterest boards I love a lot. ;) Thanks for the challenges today!

  18. Penny Says:

    I have a love story I need to scrap but haven’t had the chance yet so I will go and do it now.

  19. Mandy Says:

    Good Morning scrappy happy lovely people :)

    I’ve done this one this morning while everyone slept, it was quite easy because I got to use a photo of my hubby and I and I love, love, love us, great challenge which I shall upload to my blog after a large mug of rocket fuelled coffee

  20. Mel Says:

    Loving the love Shimelle.

  21. ninarsku Says:

    yey! I ♥ this challenge!

  22. Fay Says:

    Think I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, but I’ve already got an idea for this one.

  23. lynn Says:

    Went out to an 18th birthday party last night and came back to lots of challneges – need to catch up. Best get cracking while family are all out! Great Theme – off to print out some photos.

  24. Chipper Says:

    this is going to take some thought. I had hoped that by reading through all the other comments I might find some direction, but alas that is not to be. Will put this one on the do later pile as I want to come up with something that I love that I haven’t scrapped before. This may sound selfish but I want this one to be just about a love of MINE :-) and not the rest of the family.

  25. heather Says:

    I actually had some pink blossom photos set aside with some papers to scrap & this gave me the nudge to get that layout done! added my link

  26. Kirsteen Says:

    I’ve been saying a lot of ‘I love…’ this weekend. I love scrapbooking, I love stickers, I love my little man, I love my crimped hair (we were at an 80s themed wedding reception last night)… Looking forward to trying this out :)

  27. Funkipickle Says:

    I loved putting my layout together for this challenge. I changed it slightly from ‘I love’ though to ‘we love’ :)
    Thanks for the challenge :)

  28. Jenny A Says:

    Another great challenge. Off to start scrapping!

  29. Lisa Says:

    I’m loving these challenges ~ I’m finally getting around to scrapping my old photos!
    Thank you!

  30. sam Says:

    oh this was easy i love the beach and the chill out when on holiday with sun shining and waves lapping, nothing beats it ,

  31. Angie Says:

    It took me a while to think of something for this, especially trying to think of a photo of something I love. Whilst looking around I spotted some of my Tim Holtz stash – problem solved!

  32. Gemma Says:

    knew straight away what i would scrap for this one!

  33. Louise Wood Says:

    Another fab challenge, this is the first time I’ve done 5 yes 5 lo’s in a weekend, thanks Shimelle really loving this weekends challenges.

  34. AllisonLP Says:

    I LOVE scrapbooking about the loves of my life, (my boyz) so this will be good.

  35. Jen Clark Says:

    I admit, I kinda cheated on this one – I didn’t create it this weekend – BUT! It’s one of the most recent pages I’ve done, and definitely one of my favorites!!! ~Jen

  36. Georgia Says:

    I copied this layout almost exactly because I liked it so much. My love of yellow roses needed to be scrapped about!

  37. Cynthia Says:

    This was a fun one! I hope it’s OK, but I stuffed as many things that I love as I could fit on the page! ;-)

  38. Shannon H. Says:

    I just love purple wisteria in bloom- loved using all these different purple papers!

  39. Marie Says:

    Awesome Challenge!

  40. Natalie Elphinstone Says:

    Perfect challenge! But so many ways I could do this!! Must get scrapping :-)

  41. Cathy Green Says:

    Loved this challenge, used it to record something that I love at the moment which won’t last forever…

  42. Brenda O'Reilly Says:

    Loved doing this one, I scrapped my daughter again, couldn’t resist :)

  43. lynn Says:

    This challenge was so much fun! thanks. Off to see what the rest of you got up to.

  44. Isolde Says:

    I enjoyed this challenge a lot. Posted my layout on my blog and added it to the link.

  45. Wendy Miller Says:

    I’m so pleased I picked this one to do first, as soon as I read the brief I knew it was the right one for me, I love coffee and I loved scrapping about it equally as much as drinking it :-)
    I have just added my link and I’d love anyone comments as I am very new to scrapbooking so all feedback is appreciated.

  46. Madeline Says:

    posted 2 LO again, sorry

  47. Carrie Says:

    I admit I cheated a bit on this one… it is the layout I was making for the stickery challenge but I was completely stuck for a title – until I saw this challenge and so decided I’d combine the two!!! Thank you so much!:) Added the link to my blog post in the linky.

  48. marianne Says:

    I heart this challenge. I’m all linked up! So cool to see what everyone else picked!

  57. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    I scrapped my little girl’s toes – too yummy! I used photos I took in the crop party last year :-)

  58. Scrapdolly Says:

    I absolutely loved this challenge – and yes another page for the California album.
    Great ideas really getting my mojo going.

  59. Karen Says:

    I knew immediately which photo and which papers I wanted to use for this. Thank you for another great challenge… ‘I <3 it’ xx

  60. Jill S Says:

    Hope it’s okay that my title is “we love” rather than “I love”…

  61. Alison Says:

    Hope its OK to post two photos, just couldnt fit it all in otherwise!!!!

  62. Alison Says:

    Hope its OK to post two photos, just couldnt fit it all in otherwise!!!!

    Its hard to describe the market here in Little India, I have never scrapbooked it before, and wanted to create a calm front image and then have something to convey the chaos and amazing atmosphere inside – I dont know if I pulled it off, but I was pleased with the result!!!!

  63. Olivia Says:

    Thought I might struggle with this challenge but it helped put a different spin on my journaling & let me add a story to my vacation album that I may have decided to miss out. Thanks :)

  64. Jenny McGee Says:

    Fun challenge, I love dessert.

  65. Jenny B Says:

    Turquoise, pink and yellow. Such an inspiring challenge.

  66. So.Creative Says:

    When you say “I love…” loads of ideas come to me, but the only that matters is about my two kids. I enjoyed making the challenge, I’ve just linked it up! Thanx!!!

  67. Ann Says:

    Used a Jenni Bowlin mini bingo card for my HEART part of my title here, and wouldn’t have dug that out if it wasn’t for your Bingo & Butterflies post – that’s my next challenge! Thanks Shim x

  68. Janice Says:

    I love layouts like this that highlight one little thing that makes our hearts sing! :-) Mine is called “I love furr!”

  69. Jenny Says:

    I went for I love curry

  70. Jan Says:

    This was a fun challenge. I had to do a layout about school supplies, since I {heart} them!

  71. Nancylee Says:

    Thought i’ll take this challenge as the opportunity to thank Shimelle and all the students who inspired me on all classes we’ve done together.

  72. Sabine SR Says:

    This is a great idea. Too often I forget to scrap the every day favourites.

  73. kaatje Says:

    I finished it today. For me is this the start of changing my scrapbooking after a busy week. \normally i’m very straight. ANd here i combined it with the flouwers and hearts. \and this week I made a lot of single pages. I’m sure i will make a compatible pages with all of them but it will be different from making a spred.

  74. Gemma Says:

    I loved going back through loads of old photos looking for something I wouldn’t have thought of scrapping before. I found lots of inspiration for future pages. Thanks for this, and all the challenges.
    (Sorry, don’t know what happened but this posted in the wrong challenge at first)

  75. Gayle Redhead Says:

    Yay I finally found some time and completed a challenge! lol

  76. Ali Says:

    Really pleased to scrap these photos, and I used my sewing machine – a rare occurence.

  77. Debbie Wilby Says:

    Can I just say that I saw the challenge and looked through all the photos I had printed and found these ones of spring which I absolutely love. I finished it and then looked at the link for the full layout and found that I’d chosen almost exactly the same photos as you! Can you believe that!!!!!!!! Haven’t used pink for ages!

  78. CoCo Says:

    What fun. I’m delighted with the way this layout turned out for me. Thanks a mill Shimelle!

  79. Rachel Houltram Says:

    This was so much fun to do and not a challenge – other than to find the time to make it!

    I am a newly-wed (5 weeks and one day) and I have married such a sweet man, who is my dear darling Mr Fix-it! In that respect he takes after my dear dad, who died two years ago this month, and who met my husband and realised that here was a man who would truly take care of me, and indeed he does. In my secret journalling, I wrote (to him) how thankful I was and how many sweet things he has made and fixed since we found our cottage and moved in 11 months ago – I wrote that I dont know how he found the time to work or get married!

  80. Nikki Says:

    Enjoyed doing this lo, but I’m still having trouble uploading a link to my blog rather than just the image :-(

  81. Daphne Says:

    What a fun challenge! Will have to make a better picture of my LO tomorrow!

  82. Patty Says:

    Fun challenge!!!

  83. AndreaHB Says:

    Although I couldn’t finish a lo in time for the challenge, I know I’ll make one with the challenge in mind shortly :-)
