New Challenge?? and my 100th blog post!!

Now THAT is exciting!!
Over @ScrappingTheMoments the DT is unleashing a new set of challenges tomorrow!!!

Since my last couple of challenges have been so serious - I'm giving everyone a break of a sort (well, not really a break, it just means that next month will be more thought/anxiety provoking is all...but shhhhhhh if they think it's a "break", it's all good). Anyway -- the challenge this month was to journal about something "awesome". I originally had a thought of a "this is what I did on my summer vacation" type thing...guess that would qualify as "awesome" because don't the kids have to write things like that at school anymore??

MY trip of the summer, which was cut from everyone else's 7 days down to like 3 (sigh-work)...was still friggin awesome. In all honesty - I'm not crazy about the die cuts I used for the title...but I then colored on them with white pen and felt a "little" better about it - but in all truth, I wanted to rip it off and scream in a mad fit while stomping my feet at the injustice of it all. HOWEVER, taking the mature way --- I decided to suck it up and say IT'S OKAY (thanks AliE).

CHALLENGE yourself...or maybe it's not much of a challenge --- scrap something AWESOME and share :)

Well, the amazing part actually is that I'm finally posting and the month is a bit more than 1/2 over?!? My apologies for being a sucky blogger (why did my inner 13-year-old boy just laugh and giggle at that?? HOLD the immaturity for a minute ugh).

Over at ScrappingTheMoments challenges on the 1st and the 15th are always a way to bust out some mojo and let the creativity flow!! Some great talented chickies hang out there! ... oh, and me too *snort*

Lynn and her Heritage challenge was today's conquest for me:

Come visit!! or at least come back here and leave a comment - would it kill a person to comment? ;)

Back to School - OH YEAH! Blog Hop!

Good morning! I hope you are enjoying your hop around DT blogs so far!
I am April and I host the Journaling Challenge at ScrappingTheMoments and we have a blast!!
My first few challenges have been about favorite items and other "feel good" kinds of things.

Well, my scrapping minions *insert funny maniacal laughter here* my challenge for September should you accept it is based on adversity. Share something that you've overcome, or are working toward overcoming. Using scrapping as therapy (I do, it's cheaper than a therapist and those pesky copays, even with the purchasing of the products).

I hope that you've found this inspiring enough to come over and join in some challenges!! If this isn't your cup of tea...never fear! We have more choices!!! Hop on over and visit some of the other talented members (as blog Hops are purposed for!). Take some creative hops --- there are some prizes hidden in these here hops! ;)
