Just the Facts

Here are the FAQ's about 30 in 30 Scrapbooking that nobody's actually asked just yet. :)

1. What is 30 in 30 Scrapbooking?

30 in 30 Scrapbooking is a monthly challenge I developed to facilitate completing a large number of pages in a month's time--thirty!--but without any daily commitment. Participants are free to complete their 30 scrapbook pages at their own pace, reducing pressure and stress, while maintaining the push and creativity of a challenge.

2. Who can participate?

Anyone can. Seasoned scrapbookers, brand new scrapbookers. Paper, hybrid and digital scrapbookers, alike. (The only thing I ask of digital participants is to refrain from simply plugging photos into existing digital templates.)

3. How much does it cost?

Right now, there is no charge for participation in 30 in 30 Scrapbooking. There will likely be a nominal fee for future editions of 30 in 30 Scrapbooking to cover the cost of prizes, but as of this writing, participation is free!

4. Are there prizes involved?

Yes. Anyone who completes 30 scrapbook pages 8x8 or larger and posts them to the Yahoo group gallery by midnight Eastern time on the last day of the challenge will be eligible for the prize drawing. Your hostess makes final determinations on prize eligibility.

5. How do I participate?

Email me for an invitation to the 30 in 30 Scrapbooking Yahoo group.

6. Is there a list of rules? Where can I find it?

Yes, there are a few rules. You can find that list by clicking here.

Thank you so much for your interest in 30 in 30 Scrapbooking. I hope you'll join the fun! If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or email me.
