Introducing the Telephone Game Challenge

Hiya! I have a brand new challenge I’d like to introduce you to today. We’re calling it the Telephone Game Challenge and I’m kicking it of for 2016!

Do you remember being a kid and playing the telephone game? If not, let me explain. There’s a line of children. Someone whispers into the first kiddos ear, usually something funny. Then that kiddo whispers what they heard into a second kid’s ear. And then the second kid whispers into the third kid’s ear. But it’s whispered, so sometimes it doesn’t make sense or it gets garbled or mixed around. So by the time you get to the end of the line, the message sounds nothing like what was initially said.

We thought it would be fun to reinterpret that game as a scrapbook challenge! Every month someone will scrap lift the previous month’s layout. Taking the bits that inspire them the most and re-interpreting it with their own style. It will be interesting to see the difference between these two layouts. But it will be even more interesting to see the difference between the first layout and the sixth or the twelfth!


Here’s the layout I created to start the challenge off! I loved the Seven Paper numbers from the Shine Bright add-on. They were really the jumping off point for this page about an anniversary. It’s a fairly simple page but I think simple is good. Lots of room for interpretation =)

Next month, the lovely Jennifer Larsen will be sharing her iteration. I’m excited to see what she comes up with! You’ll have to check in next month as well, to see how this little challenge of ours progresses.

And if you decide to jump in on the game and scrap lift this page, please share it it with us! Either in the Scrapbook Circle Facebook Group or on Instagram. Just tag @scrapbook_circle or include the hashtag #scrapbookcircle
