A Couple Things...

7.14.2008


Recently found this website and am enjoying the weekly challenges that they have going on. Every week they post a photo challenge (this past week's photo challenge was to take a self-portrait - see mine below) and a scrap challenge (this past week's was a sketch that was a layout that was in the shape of a circle w/specific photo dimensions, pp dimensions, etc. - see mine in this post). Really enjoy being pushed to think outside the box sometimes. I find that challenges push me creatively to think differently about my pages and they definitely help me when I feel that I am in a creative rut (which I've been feeling lately). The message board over there is a joy to be a part of as well. I was thrilled to see some familiar faces once I joined and am excited to make some new scrappy friends as well.


I love how there is such a sense of community in the scrappy world through utilizing the Internet. So awesome that I've been able to make all these little connections through this hobby/craft and this avenue of communication and sharing and that this world gets bigger and bigger as I go on creating.

Wishing you a creative day!

Clear flower, kraft paper, b/w photos and blues & greens...I love every bit! And the photo of yourself is pretty cool. I agree that the community is great, meeting people who have common interests....I just wish some were closer to Ohio!
