Contact: JenniferTapler@msn.com

Anyone can participate in this week-long event. You will need access to the internet and a digital camera to upload your entries to the challenges (you can upload either to your own blog or to your SCS gallery). There will be tons of challenges (including scrapbooking, card-making, 3-D and altered projects) and blog candy give-aways. If you can't participate in the challenges, but would like to donate to this event, there will be a "Grand Finale" give-away at the end of the week in which all donors will be entered to win. The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning. A list of all the challenges will be posted at 10:00 pm Hawaii Time Friday, May 2. You can start submitting your entries on May 3 and have the whole week to work on your projects and submit. So even if you are busy May 3, you will still be able to participate.

Please sign up well in advance - the more participants we have, the better the blog candy will be!!

The Alzheimer's Association is a cause that hits close to home for me as my father was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. ALL proceeds from participation fees and donations will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. (Tax Receipts provided on request). Do your small part to help find a cure for this devastating disease.

There is a link at the top of the right-hand column of this blog to sign up and make your donation to participate. More details will be posted as the event nears.

If you would like to donate supplies to be used as Blog Candy for this event, please e-mail me at JenniferTapler@msn.com. (Tax receipts will be provided for supply donations as well - great way to get rid of unused & leftover supplies).

Thank you!

I have bookmarked your blog page. I would like to participate if the time is ok. I lost my father in 2001 to complications from Alzheimer's and still miss him. I contribute to the Association, but this is a fun way to contribute.

How cool! I Hope to attend but won't know for another few weeks. Depends on how my kids are doing! :) I think this is great! My grandfather was dx so this too is close to my heart as well.

Hi Jen,
I just found your blog, and about this event through Julee Timan's blog and I signed up to join in. It sounds like such a fun event, and it's helping out a great cause. Unfortunately Alzheimer's runs in my family also. My Grandpa had it and my Grandma suffers from a mild case of it now. Any little step towards figuring out this disease is worth it! Looking forward to the week ahead, Angie
