Why Do Challenges?

Credits-Apologies to the designers, I lost the file

A lot of us get into scrapbooking initially because we want to document special events or family history.  But that can be done with a regular photo album and some note cards. What is that hook that gets us scrapbooking?  I believe it's because we want to add our own touch of creativity, whether through journaling or decorating the page with embellishments.

Challenges are a great way to spark your creativity or encourage yourself to try something new/different.  These two LOs I made while doing challenges over at my favorite place, Soul Scrappers.

"Going for the Score!" was a color challenge to use black, white and blue.

"The Big Game" was a negative space sketch challenge.

Neither of these LOs would have been created without the inspiration of the challenges.
And the best part is most everyone shares their LOs for even more inspiration.  I love looking at other  LOs to see different interpretations of the challenges.  The galleries are a great source for inspiration.

So how about?  Are you up for a challenge? Head on over to and check it out.

Thanks for stopping by!
