Let's Get It Started!!

Welcome!  I can't wait to start this journey!!

First, to explain my reasoning for this blog...I love to scrap, however I often lack time and motivation and mojo.  When I went to CKC Des Moines with my good friend Tessa, (check out her awesome blog HERE) after working our tails off in the CKC store, we took the class "I Dare You".  It was based on the book 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges by Elizabeth Kartchner.  We did three different layouts using the challenges in the book.  I decided I really liked this book and could really use it as motivation to get some scrapping done, and the book came home with me (and Tessa, too!).  So, after getting the school year started and getting settled into a new grade level I finally decided the new year was the right time to get this project rolling, and here we are!!!

Now, to explain how this is going to work...
What I will do~
Each Sunday or Monday (depending on how busy my weekend was) I will post the challenge for the week.  It will come directly from the book, and I will tell you what page so you can follow along if you have the book.  Don't worry if you don't have the book, I will explain it and I will have an example to share. 

What you will do~
If you choose to play along that week, I ask that you leave a comment on the original post with a link to where we can see your project (your blog, facebook, a website's gallery, etc.) or you can email a photo of it directly to me at scrappynatty@gmail.com and I will post it on the blog.  I will post and accept submissions from when the challenge is posted to the following Sunday before 5pm CST.  I ask that everyone that looks please leave a comment on the submissions.  Some weeks, we will have voting for the best usage or interpretation of the challenge, and some weeks there will be prizes or RAKS!!

That's it!  I really hope that you play along!  Please, invite your friends, link my blog to yours, and whatever else you can to get the word out!

Now, Let's Get It Started!!!

Enjoy Everything,
