Okay everyone, here's our NEW CHALLENGE... We need Give Kids the World (GKTW)embellishments and pre-made layouts. You'll need to go to the website to learn more about what they do; GKTW is an incredible place. Each album we make at Crops of Luv usually has two or three layouts from Give Kids the World...swimming, Meeting the Characters that visit from all of the local theme parks, Pirates & Princesses, Christmas Every Thursday, and much more... For each layout you submit and for each 10 embellishments you make you'll receive an entry in our Challenge Drawing for a suite of products valued at $100. Each 2-page layout will count as an entry in our Celebration Challenge and will be entered for a chance to win a $300 prize package with items from some of our INCREDIBLE sponsors. We're setting a goal of 200 layouts (that will help us make up to 20 albums!!!!! So help us reach our goal and you could win!).

 Here are some things to remember:
*Each layout should have a "journaling spot"
*Each layout should have room for AT LEAST 5 to 7 pictures
*Make your layouts kid-friendly (colorful, interactive, lumpy bumpy, and FUN FUN FUN!!!!)
*Include a title on your layout

Embellishments: Should be handmade and not something you can buy in the store. If you need some ideas, just let us know and we can give you some ideas.

Send pictures of layouts and embellishments to our email address ( )... All entries must be posted no later than 10 PM (PST) September 30th... Have FUN Creating!


  1. This is such a grand organization. I've been a wish granter for Make a Wish Foundations of Middle Tennessee for about 5 years now and am currently on my 5 wish. GKTW is a awesome place. I'm joining your blog because I feel that my scrapbooking group can learn a lot from you guys. We are currently planning our Christmas Wishes Crop to benefit MAWF of MidTN. Keep up the good work and God Bless you.
