black & white photo challenge

for this month for team a i challenge the girls to use a black & white photo

this time our guest DT is:
Hello. I'm really excited to be a guest designer for the very first time! My name is Diana. Born in Cali, Colombia but raised in the United States since the age of 6. I got married at a young age to a wonderful man and I have three wonderful kids. Ages ranging from 5 to 16 years old. I am currently attending college double majoring in Photography and Interactive Media. On December 2007 I did my first scrapbooking layout. I started digital but on that following month, in January I decided to try out paper and ever since I have become addicted to it! I found a great new way to use both of my passions: Design and photography! But mostly I scrapbook because it's a way for me to express myself creatively and keep precious memories. I am still trying out and experimenting many different things. I'm very determined and I love to learn new things. I have many goals in life and one of them is to become a successful scrapper/designer!

our new dt members

just wanted to make a post with our new great dt girls!
i am so excited to have them on board and they are really awesome girls!


I am married to my husband, Jason for almost five years [where does the time go?!] and we have two beautiful children, Trenton 3 years old and Jocelyn 8 months. I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years and stamping for almost 6 years. I am completely addicted to this hobby. I love it so much I decided to make it a job for me. I have started my own scrapbooking/paper crafting company. I scrapbook for other people. I also have my own etsy store which I try to keep updated as much as I can.


I'm Nik from South Cackalack (South Carolina, USA).   I am married to the most wonderful man, Victor, and we have six terrific children  ages 19, 17, 15, 8, 5 and 4.  I work third shift as a  Detention Officer at a large city jail and I am the owner of Touched By  Love Florist and La Pasadita Seafood Restaurant.   I have been scrapping for 19 years but devotely for almost 10 years.   My style is linear with a touch of freestyle.   My favorite products/techniques are paint, stitching and ribbon.   I believe there is no right or wrong way to scrap as  long as the story of your life is being told.   I look forward to contributing and being inspired  here at Let's Scrap and can't wait to get to know y'all better :)

Hi! I am Deborah, wife to Kevin of almost 15 years and mom to my two girls 4 and 13. I am also the mo to three adopted ktties and one lab mix. I am a "retired" Private Investigator and Payroll Specialist who decided to stay home with her kids. It has allowed me the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time paper crafting, which I love.I would love to help in any way possible :) I live in VA and can be reached at htt:// I write, teach in my local community, and hostess monthly crops in my area and breathe scrapbooking :)

ladies i love all of your work and so glad your aboard with us!

onto other news we are holding a cupcake crop over on our ning group
march 10-11th please come over and join us! our dt girls have some great challenges,games,how to's and other things!
