National Scrapbooking Day Challenge and Giveaway

Somtimes, It might be easy to forget that I am a scrapbooker, too... I spend a lot of time here with my other crafts, and with life in general (or specific) and I'll be honest, it's been awhile since I made a scrapbooking page.   But I love National Scrapbooking day, and usually spend my day doing the challenges over at   I've learned a lot from the ladies there, and enjoy the comraderie that the hourly challenges provide.  I've done a small giveaway for the last few years myself, usually just a "leave me a comment to be entered" but because I have this IDEA in my head these days, this year,  I have a challenge:  Create something about Planet You.  There's a few reasons behind this, the first being I'm just plain interested in getting to see how you see you : ) but also as scrapbookers, we are usually the missing piece in our projects... we are the photographers, and the archivers and we don't show up in our own work.   If you're new to my blog, let me explain abit about the "Planet You" concept.  I have a place I call Planet Kaere-- it's where I live, in my heart, in my mind.  It's the way I see the world, the filter through which I see you, the rest of the world.   You can read a few posts back to get an idea of what I mean... 
You can make a mini album, a standard lay out, a piece of mixed media art, a journal page... When you are finished, post a link to your project in the comments section.  Winner will be chosen at random.  I'll add the prize package pictures and contents list to this post-- bear with me as I get organized for that part of this : )  I just wanted to give you some extra time to get working on this challenge. 
So looking forward to seeing Planet You!
 You May Post up until 9:00 a.m. Sunday May 8th (I go to bed too early to cut it off today  : )  )
Prize pack includes:
piggy tales epoxy stickers,
12 sheets coordinating pattern paper
Suzy's Zoo Baby Stickers
2 mini chipboard albums (me and my big ideas)
Martha Stewart corner loops punch
assorted stickers and cardstock embellishments.

(more may be added if I get more cleaned up and sorted! : ) )

Interestingly enough - I have spent the last two weeks creating art in a journal based on "Planet Kathy" - to use your terms!

I think this piece is the most telling - and the greatest overall representation of me:

A terrific way to get to know people - love this idea! Sadly, it's been too hectic around here to do this justice... however, I do look forward to see what others create!

Great idea Kaere, "Planet You". Wow. Well I've loved reading about you Kaere,Such inspiration! I've been having trouble with this concept admittedly, don't think about myself enough I guess, but you've got me thinking now, what am I about,hmmmmm. I'll really need to think about it. Thanks for all your wonderful thoughts!

Kaere, I apologize first for my pictures being sideways(most of them), and they are under dawnsbeach in flickr. I tried & tried to correct it but to no avail. I feel like a ditz, guess I should spend some time over at flickr.

Please excuse me Kaere, Thanks.
