~The International Women’s Day Multi-Tasking Challenge~

Here’s a chance to help us Celebrate International Women’s Day at Scrapbooker’s Club House!

Here are the rules:
(Please read carefully. There is a BONUS!)

Participation means that you’ll be entered in a draw to win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the SBCH Store from me, and a cool scrappy prize packet from Nicole!

Since most women are such great multi-taskers, I thought it’d be cool to ask that you choose TWO challenges from those posted below and share them with us.

There are LOTS to choose from! Please note, there are both LOs and cards listed as choices. We only ask that the pairs (two challenge items) that you enter not both be cards. Thanks! :o)

Each person who completes the 2 challenge items of their choice and posts them to the International Women’s Day Contest folder in the Gallery, will have their name entered into the drawing once.

**BONUS!!! ie: Completing 4 challenge items (ie: 2 pairs) will get your name entered in the draw twice, and so on!!! Yes, you can enter this contest as many as 8 times!**

Layouts and cards can be any size: 6×6, 8×8, 6×12, 12×12 and can be horizontal or vertical, whatever you like. You are the designer!

DEADLINE for all entries is March 8, 2008 at midnight MST. Your entries MUST be uploaded to the contest folder with your name included by that time.
**Please remember to upload your entries to the International Women’s Day Challenge folder in the Gallery with your NAME on each one for a chance to win prizes.**
