Scrap Challenge: History In The Making

I thought it would be fun to have a forum of Scrap Challenges, not a contest, but a challenge to make a page using a specific theme, color or item. The challenge I thought of to start is “History”; to visit a place of history unique to where you live. For ideas you could visit your Parks & Recreation website or Local Historical Society website to find out what is in your area. This idea came to me because of a page I am going to be working on. Colorado, where I live, is full of historical spots, from dinosaurs and the Wild West to The Unsinkable Molly Brown of the Titanic. It is a great way to learn something new and expand our creativity. When the Gallery is up and running we could then share our pages with each other!

Sounds fun Lisa! I would love to learn more about where everyone is from.

I got the scrap challenge idea from another website. They have a different challenge every month. The most recent was to make a page using a map. I took up the idea and really had fun with some pictures I just took. I thought it would make a great forum and everyone could share ideas.

sounds fun!!! I love challenges... it forces me to get a page done for once! lol!

I love challenges as well. The history challenge is a great idea. It will force me to learn more about the Grand Rapids, MI area given that we just moved here in August.

I just finished two pages on a historial site I visited about three years ago (yes I am a little behind) and it was so much fun recalling what I had learned and putting it all together with great photos and assets. I think it would be fun to start a forum after the new year on this challenge and we could share our pages with each other.

Lisa L. - You are only 3 years behind. I envy you. I am still working on my wedding, which was almost 6 years ago smiley That's why I love challenges. They get me one step closer to catching up.

We're hoping to have the gallery up by the end of the week (fingers crossed!) and then we can get started with some challenges!

Yay! Ill try to stay tuned, even having a hard week smiley

Awesome idea!

This will be a lot of fun!

I'm in!
I love to get dragged out of my usual work and make something I would never have done on my own.


I love the idea of the scrap challenge, way more than contests and voting. That way everyone wins! smiley

It sounds great. A thought this can be something that would be set for one week a month or run for a couple of weeks. Where there are different things running, starting at different times and ending at different times.
