New Challenge for August

I am hosting a Pinterest Challenge this month at Scrapable and I just wanted to share with you what it is all about. I saw a similar idea (probably on Pinterest!) and just had to do one for myself. The idea is to take a screen shot of your Pinterest boards and then make a layout with that as the main photo. As you can see from mine, I kept it large enough that the boards were my ONLY photo on the page. Later I can look back and see what I was interested in at this particular time and see how my interests might have changed.

Come play along with me at Scrapable and show me your "take" on this Challenge!

UPDATE: I put the instructions on how to take a screen shot in the challenge post at Scrapable but I will include them on this page, too.

On a Mac: Open the page in your browser that you want to copy and hold down Command, Shift and the number 3. You should see a jpeg copy of your entire desktop show up on your desktop! Open your photoshop program then open the saved jpeg from your desktop.

On a PC: Open the page in your browser that you want to copy. Press the Print Scrn/SysRq button at the end of the row of function keys on your keypad. That puts the page on your clipboard. Open your photoshop program and the page you are creating and press Ctrl + V to paste it on your page. If you have Vista or Windows 7, you can use the built-in Snipping Tool to capture the screen you want to copy.


  1. Oh, this looks like fun. Silly question for you though...How do you take a screen shot? I would love to do this. Thanks.

  2. How do you take a screenshot?
