There are so many great challenges this month.  Have you had a chance to check them out? I’ve completed three so far, including the Random Challenge which I’m hosting.  I know Decembers are busy but do yourself a favor and take some time to exercise your creative muscles.

This week in particular has been a whirlwind of activity but I think I’m finally. almost. caught up! Here are the layouts for the challenges I’ve done so far this month.

And finally, the Mystery Box Challenge.  It’s always a fun and surprising challenge.

November Challenges at Pickleberrypop

I’m having a lot of fun with November’s Challenges at Pickleberrypop!  So far this month I’ve done the Siggy ChallengeAll About My Family Challenge, and the Journaling Challenge.  If you haven’t checked them out yet click on the links above.  Here are my layouts…

My first layout is All About My Family.  The fonts are Grand Junction Outline & Grand Junction Script.  We’re empty nesters so our family consists of my husband and I plus our Mini-Schnauzer, and cat.  The photo where I’m holding our Mini Schnauzer, Sugar, is from several years ago.  She passed away almost 4 years ago but we both miss her to this day.

 

 

The next page is for the Journaling Challenge which is about 5 things I’m thankful for.  The fonts used are Grand Junction Outline for the titles and Strike One Regular for the journaling.

 

 

I used The Naturalist by Heartstrings Scrap Art for all of the challenges today.  I loved this kit the first time I saw it.  The kit name above is linked to the store.  Here’s a preview.

 

 

And last but not least is the Siggy Challenge and my new forum siggy using The Naturalist too. The font I used for the siggy is a personal use font called Sunday Morning.  I hope you’ll try out a few or all of this month’s challenges. They’re a lot of fun!

 

New Releases are Live and Check Out the Color Challenge

New Releases are Live at Pickleberrypop and check out the Color Challenge!  This month’s Color Challenge is to use a B&W photo and only three (3) colors for all other elements used.  You know I love lots of elements and colors so it truly was a challenge for me.  I used Chunlin Designs’ new kit, Fly Away.  If you’re up to the challenge, check it out here.

There’s Still Time for July Challenges

There’s still time for July Challenges at Pickleberrypop!  Here’s a layout I created using this month’s Mystery Box.  The Mystery Box Challenge is always fun and this month is delightful.

As I mentioned in my last post, my grandkids were here for a week and one of the things they love to do when they visit is riding on our tractor and riding lawnmower!  Here’s the youngest, almost three, on the tractor.  For him, it’s just as fun when it’s not even running.

Today is a Good Day for a Challenge

Today is a good day for a challenge!  Have you checked out all the great challenges on the forum at Pickleberrypop?  If not, allow me to share one of my all-time favorites, the Use It All Challenge. This month, Chantal at Chunlin Designs has a sweet little mini kit for you to play with.

 

So download it and create a layout.  Finally, post your layout in the Monthly Mojo Gallery and Use It All Challenge thread.  While you’re there I hope you’ll share some love with others. Here’s the layout I created.  Have I told you recently that I always love a little red in a kit?
