Happy 1st Birthday to If It's Groovy!

If It's Groovy is celebrating our first birthday in a big way!
Each Design Team Member is hosting their own challenge and giveaway and we are inviting you to hop through and play along. We are each offering a wonderful RAK, so there is plenty of chances to win. As you complete each challenge, go back to If It's Groovy to see where to go next and play along in the Bingo challenge there.

For my challenge I would like you to create a scrabpook page that includes a Birthday Card on it.
My inspiration comes from a few years back. It was my hubby's 50th birthday and I had all his friends and family send the cards to me. I took each card and created a scrapbook page that included the card and photos or messages from the sender. The book was a great way to show my husband how blessed he is with friends and is a great keepsake that he looks at to this day. Once you glue your card to the page, simply slip your LO into the page protector then trim around three sides of the card so that the card can be opened and read. I also made a pocket page for extra cards that came in later. If you want to make a pocket page, that will count towards my challenge also!

I've got a few samples shown below to inspire you.

Once you create your page, use the Mr. Linky tool (in the sidebar on the right) to submit your completed challenge projects to me. I want to be able to come look at your LO and ooh and ahh!! and enter you into the drawing for a great prize packet of Japanese scrapbook goodies.

Make sure your include the URL for the LO and your name. Or, simply email a picture of your page to me at

Once you are done, hop on back to If It's Groovy to see what else inspires you.
Our challenge runs Jan 4 - 30.
