The fun has started... Creative Crafts and Stickers! They are throwing a 3rd Birthday/Good-bye Bash. They throw the best parties! Already there's a progressive challenge on the go, and really neat Mini-Desk Calendar make'n'take and 6 other challenges, as well as a fun game of Battleship and a word scramble. If you're looking for something to do, check it out.

I actually managed to do one of the challenges tonight! I made a kickstand card. I've been wanting to make one so I set to work on it as soon as I got a chance. Hopefully I'll post a picture and some instructions before too long.

iScrap Blog Challenge

This may be the only challenge I'll manage to complete from the crop. :)

1. Five things I can’t scrapbook without:
- time to myself :) that's why I haven't done any scrapping for a while
- pictures - another reason why I haven't scrapped lately. I have no camera to take pictures
- computer - I use my computer for inspiration and also for planning
- printer - I use my printer in some way on most all my layouts - journaling, elements, etc
- inspiration, usually in the form of challenges

2. Five places I have traveled to most recently
- the bathroom
- the living room
- the rec room
- the kitchen
- the local coffeeshop - DH and I actually went out tonight!
:) I know these are probably not the answers expected but I really haven't been anywhere, hardly even out of the house, for a long, long time.

3. Five things I watch on TV
- CSI - either one
- The Young and the Restless - it's my one and only vice :)
- Little Bear
- Go, Deigo, Go
Those last two are thanks to little one. :) This was a really hard one for me to answer because I really don't watch much TV.

4. Five foods I can’t stand
- rabbit
- seafood
- wildbirds - duck, goose, etc
- hot peppers
- Kraft Dinner

5. Five reasons to visit iScrap!
- talented members
- tutorial section
- store locator
- events information
- gallery

Hmmm...this looks interesting...

They are issuing genealogy challenges at Hummie's World, a digital scrapbooking board that I recently discovered. The idea is to scrap a generation of direct lineage each week. Though the challenge is issued on a digital board the challenges could just as easily be done with paper, if you are so inclined. I'm thinking I may give these challenges a try, though I haven't decided yet if I'll go paper or digi.

In this section of the board there are links to digi kits that could be used for this. If you decided to go with paper you could print papers and elements from these kits and actually end up with hybrid pages.

The challenge for this week is to do a page about your parents and include their names, dates of birth, and anniversary. Included on the board are some ideas on how to organize and plan beyond just that page.

I hope I go beyond thinking about doing this and actually get down to doing it. It might help motivate me if I knew others were joining in. If you decide to give it a try please let me know.
