This week, we have the opportunity to pay honor and tribute to Aleida by showing you some of the layouts the design team created, announce the winner of an amazing kit, induct a new member into our Hall of Fame, and post a new challenge.

Here is our special tribute to Aleida...our friend who will be forever in our hearts.

Did you see all the layouts created for "Girls Just Want to Have Fun?" Can you say "WOW?!?!?" Each and every layout is a winner in my book! They all rocked!!! The winner of the kit from Create My Keepsake is Bucket and the newest member in our Scrapping the Music Hall of Fame is Birgit! Congratulations to the both of you! Bucket, please email your mailing address, so I can get your kit postal.

This week, we have another song from the 80s to inspire you and over the next couple of weeks a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from....Scrapwords!!!

Aleida Franklin

On Friday, September 12th, a horrific accident happened that took the life of Aleida Franklin. Words cannot express how saddened we are and how much our hearts ache for her family. This week we are not posting a new challenge, but instead honoring Aleida Franklin's contributions to the Scrapping the Music community. She will forever be a part of the scrapping world and hold a special place in our hearts. On her last self portrait she inscribed, "Live today like there is no tomorrow." I feel she did live each day fully and loved her family deeply. You will see this love in every layout she created. In honor of her, we have created this slide show with all the layouts she created for our blog. We will miss her terribly.

Did you see the slide show? Once again, we set a new all time high record number of participants! There were 26 layouts completed for this challenge and the Design Team had a very difficult time choosing just one for the Hall of Fame. Kimmy put it best when she said every time she watched the slide show she had a new favorite! hahaha Anyway, the newest member of our Scrapping the Music Hall of Fame is Megan A. Congratulations!

This week, we will be giving away this from Create My Keepsake. Please take a minute to check out there site. Their kits are absolutely amazing!!!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am that we have Tammy Kay as our guest designer this month. She was one of the very first people to know about the site, so it is very fitting that she helps us celebrate our one year anniversary. Tammy Kay is one amazing scrapper that is admired by all who have seen her work. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us this month.

Here are the design team's creations for "Girls Just Want to have Fun" to get the good times rolling.
