So (inter)National Scrapbooking Day was yesterday and as usual the party was hopping on the scrapbooking message boards across the internet and is still lingering on in some places. As usual, life got in the way of me spending my weekend scrapping my heart out. There was soccer. My husband left town for a friend’s surprise party. The boys were wild and energetic and LOUD. I like to scrap in peace. Weekends and scrapping don’t really go together too well in my life.

But I did find time to stop by an LSS, visit my favourite scrappy message boards, chat a bit and check out the inspiration and challenges. And there were a lot of them to choose from.

  • My favourite Canadian online store, The Paper Passion has a number of challenges still going on until Monday evening. I have a few ideas in the works, but will have to work hard to get more than one or two done tomorrow.
  • I also looked in on the celebrations at 2 Peas in a Bucket. Too much to keep up with on the boards for me, but I did like the look of a couple of their challenges and loved the fun badges they award for participating in the celebrations. It’s a little thing, but I appreciate them.
  • Simple Stories blog has a couple of challenges that look like fun and the deadline is a very doable June 1.
  • Scrapbook & Card Today had a blog post an hour yesterday, with a great mix of challenges and inspiration or techniques.

So what are your favourite places to look for inspiration and challenges?
