What are Challenges?

Typically, digital scrapbooking challenges include instructions that you are to follow as you create a page or layout, with a specific outcome in mind. Sometimes a challenge will include a quote, a set of colors, or even specific elements to use on your page — such as “1 ribbon, 2 photos, and a digital stamp”. Whatever the form of the challenge, it can spark your creativity and force you to think outside of the box and sometimes, out of your comfort zone. Each month I will provide a prompt or other freebie and “challenge” you to create a layout using that prompt.

Digital Scrapbooking and Art Journaling Challenge

Participants in my challenges get a freebie and are also eligible for a 5 coupon drawing held after the challenge period. This year, I’m also holding a $20 coupon drawing for everyone who participates in my challenges for the entire year!

About My Page

Although last month I shared my struggles surrounding my lack of creative energy (which resulted in April’s Artful Expressions 04 ), I didn’t explain factors that might have contributed to it. Without boring you with the details, I’ll just say this: in the past six months, Mr. Me has had two back surgeries; I’ve had one surgery; and in case that wasn’t enough to deal with, there’s been enough family drama to last an entire lifetime. Get the picture? This month, I embraced my frustration with the whole “family drama” thing — in a rather humorous way I think you might be able to relate to.

Of course, YOUR page should reflect how YOU interpret the prompts — which are free to all challenge participants. Get all the details about this month’s challenge and the free prompt over in my challenge thread in the Oscraps Forum. I hope to see you there!.
