Week 1 {ODBDLYLS3} Scrapbook Challenge

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE RELEASE BLOG HOP, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN ONE POST!

Yeah, it's time for a new Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook Challenge here at Our Daily Bread Designs. This is a very special month for ODBD-- it's ODBD's 3rd Anniversary Celebration! There will be lots of fun activities all month, and our challenge this month will be based on the 3rd anniversary. Keep reading--details are below but first we must share our winner from February's challenge!

Thank you to everyone who played along with us for our February Scrapbook Challenge! We love seeing scrapbook pages using ODBD stamps! So, without further "chatter," our $25 Gift Certificate Winner for February's Challenge is: Rachel Henahan!
Congratulations Rachel!! Please e-mail Kelley at kelley@ourdailybreaddesigns.com for more
information on how you to claim your gift certificate.

Okay, now let's look at our March Anniversary Challenge! Our challenge this month goes along with the 3rd anniversary modern gift (crystal/glass) and the 3rd anniversary flower (fuchsia). So your challenge for March is to use:

**fuchsia flowers or the color fuchsia for the anniversary flower OR
**crystal or glass for the anniversary modern gift (this can be faux crystal gems, a glass embellishment, etc.), AND
**ODBD stamps!


Each month, we are also going to try and give you "scrappy stamping" tips so that it will help you use your stamps on those scrapbook pages. My tip for you today is down below with my scrapbook page. :) Now let's look at our inspiration using this March Challenge:

8x8 Page by Patter Cross
ODBD Sets Used: Blessings and Faith
Scrappy Stamping Tip: Notice how I only used a portion of the Faith stamp (the butterflies). The image is much bigger and has 6 butterflies but I didn't need the entire image. I cut one butterfly out and placed it in the bottom right corner. I then used 3 other butterflies from the image and placed them on the left. And I stamped them on the same paper as my background so it looks as if I cut out the center between the butterflies though I did not. And lastly, to get my "Blessings" sentiment to line up properly, I used my stamp positioner. I use it a lot when stamping on my scrap pages! I hope these tips help you today, and think about how you can use just a portion of a stamp next time you are stamping.

To see close-up photos, complete supply lists, etc., please visit the designers individual blogs by clicking on their name just above their scrapbook page. I am sure they would love to receive some love too! :) Now, it is your turn to play! Here are the guidelines!

**You must use ODBD stamps on a scrapbook page of any size!
**Other stamps are allowed, but ODBD images need to be the focus!
**Use Keywords ODBDLYLS3 and ODBD when linking to SCS or other public galleries.
**The same keywords will be used for this entire month of March!

**All entries for the entire month must be linked to this first post of the month using Inlinkz.

The challenge runs from today through Thursday, March 31st, at 6 pm EST. You have all month to enter. You can enter as many times as you like, just remember to link your creations to this first post. We will select a winner from ALL of the March scrapbook challenge entries for a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store!
