Oh how I love scrappy challenges...

I used to shy away from scrappy challenges but now I'm completely addicted to them. I love the variety they offer and how they force me to explore new techniques. So many times, while looking on-line or in magazines, I will say to myself, "I should try that sometime" but it seems like I never do it on my own. That's the beauty of an on-line scrapbooking community. Not only is it a great social network, it also pushes me to try new things.

If your scrappy mojo is missing, why not give challenges a try. I think you'll be surprised how quickly the inspiration returns! Here are a couple of my latest challenges:

Inspired by music:
