MDCSB26 - Ad Art Inspiration AND A Fun Announcement!

Hello and welcome to Mothers and Daughters scrapbook challenge! We have a really fun announcement to share with you, but FIRST we want to share this week's challenge! This week we're having an inspiration challenge based on ad art... all you need to do is find a magazine ad that is NOT related to scrapbooking and use it as inspiration for your layout! Check out the design team samples:

Robin Wade - Creating Memories One Moment At A Time

Robin used sei's Dill Blossom collection to make her page (don't you just love that freakin' wheelbarrow????) and was inspired by this ad:

Tamara McKlveen - Tam's MDC Creations

I used papers from Basic Grey's Marrakech line, and my page is inspired by this ad:

Laurie Rodick - Lovin' My Life
Laurie forgot to get a picture of the ad she used, but look at her beautiful page using Daisy Bucket's Playful Petals collection:

Thanks, ladies, for your beautiful work! We can't wait to see what you can do with an ad... just leave us a comment with a link to your work (and the ad it's based on) and your work may be featured in next week's post!
And now for our exciting news - our very own Cathy Weider has organized MDC's very first blog roll! This will begin April 30th and will culminate on Mother's Day with a gallery of entries from designers and visitors alike. The theme, Mothers and Daughters Traditions, promises a bouquet of fabulous projects - cards, scrap book designs, gift and packaging ideas, altered projects, and much, much more.

Beginning on Thursday, April 30th, grab your cup of tea or coffee and a sweet roll and join us for our daily posts. We'll share fabulous projects, memories, and recipes, inspirational ideas for journaling scrap book pages and writing personalized messages for cards, and the secret language of flowers. Create a card or a treasure box, embellish a picture mat or a scrap book page, test your knowlege of trivia, or simply share a memory and you could win some of the fabulous blog candy we'll be offering each day. Sweet! Be sure to keep posted for further details!

Have a fabulously scrappy day!
