  1. Time is flying by!  Let's take this weekend to catch up a little:  Find a layout or a project that you started but never finished - if it's a layout, get 'er done!  If it's a project, depending on what it is either complete it and take a photo and scrap it (ooooohhhh, double challenge), or if it's too big or overwhelming then at least make some progress on it and then take a photo of your project, or a selfie of you working on it, and scrap it.

    Once your layout is finished, upload it to the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery, then come back to this thread and leave a link to your layout so the rest of us can fawn over it!

    Oh my! I can't believe we are 2 months into this year already! Only 301 days until Christmas. . . . .Sorry, too soon?  Keep up the great job ladies. I am loving your pages. And, I am loving this style of scrapping! It really helps me keep up with this year's small events. 

    LOL, Christmas!  This past year has gone by really fast, though, even with all the craziness.  I'm a little behind on PL, but I have several layouts partly done, the photos are all chosen and laid out at least. Thanks for posting March prompts, I'm still following the daily prompts as much as I can!

  3. It's already February!  Where I live, February can be a bit cold, wet, and bleak - and with this pandemic continuing on and on and on, I predict it will be even more challenging than normal to stay positive this month.  With that in mind, here are your four February challenges... hopefully completing these layouts will be a welcome distraction!  Once you've finished one or more layouts (you don't have to complete them all), upload them into the Monthly Challenge Gallery then come back to this thread to leave links to your layouts.  If you're participating in the February Challenge Chase, don't forget to also post your links in the February Challenge Chase thread as well.

    Challenge 1: February is the month of LOVE!  Scrap a layout centered around any Valentine's Day traditions you have now or that you've had in the past.  As an alternative (because I know not everyone bothers with Valentine's Day), scrap a layout with a love or friendship theme. 

    Challenge 2:  Color Challenge!  Yes, of course, February colors, but I went with a more moody color palette.  If you'd like the actual hex or RGB numbers, they can be found HERE.  Your February color palette:


    Challenge 3:  February is also the month of several official observances.  I've listed many of them below.  Pick one to base your layout on.  Judging from the list below, the sky is the limit on this layout challenge!  Here is a list of observances to choose from based on February in the U.S., but you may choose one based on February in your own location if you wish (just tell us what it is!):

    • National Fasting February
    • An Affair to Remember Month
    • Black History Month
    • Canned Food Month
    • Creative Romance Month
    • Great American Pies Month (well, doesn't have to be American... just pie!)
    • National Bake for Family Fun Month
    • National Bird Feeding Month
    • National Children's Dental Health Month
    • National Grapefruit Month
    • National Heart Month
    • National Hot Breakfast Month
    • National Library Lover's Month
    • National Snack Food Month
    • National Weddings Month
    • National Embroidery Month

    Challenge 4:  OK, I'll have one layout that isn't necessarily associated with February.  This last layout will be a combination of a theme and recipe layout.  THEME:  Base your layout on a children's book or story that you enjoyed as a child, or that someone dear to you loved (significant other, kids, etc).  This is open for interpretation, and your layout doesn't necessarily have to specifically be about the story or book, but if it's not obvious what story you picked, let us know when you post your layout what story/book that it's based on, and how your layout relates.  Then to add a twist, incorporate the following requirements:

    • Use as many papers as you like, but include at least one patterned paper.
    • Use as many embellishments as you like, but include one kid-related item (teddy bear, baby bottle, rattle, toy car, train, etc).
    • Include a heart somewhere on your layout.

    Have fun this month, hang in there, and let me know if you have any questions.  I'll be following this thread all month, and I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

    1. Do you use the monthly photo prompts/challenges? yes/no

    2. If you do, do you like the holiday theme? Or would you like some other theme? 

    I'm using the daily prompts!  The holiday theme has been fun this month and has led to some interesting photos, but I'll go along with whatever prompts you throw up there.  I'm working on my weeks 3 and 4 layouts now, and this weekend sometime I'll be printing out the February prompts to put into my bullet journal, if you are able to post them.
