Daily Scrap Encouragement Progressive Style
To encourage one another to create pages I will post daily and weekly steps to creating a page. Feel free to follow along and to come by everyday and create a page. Or you can collect instructions for completing one page a week. The weekly instructions will be posted in steps the first two instructions on Monday, the next three instructions on Wednesday, and the final three instructions on Friday. The instructions are like the instructions we use for the progressive challenge.
