52 more scrapbooking challenges

I bought this book the week it was released and with no exaggeration I look at this book everyday. Seriously, I do. I am always finding new things that I haven't discovered the previous time and it continues to inspire me now as it did at first glance. There are so many colourful and creative layouts thoughout the book that keep my creative juices flowing. So I had planned on beginning the 52 challenges in January doing one a week and well it's now April. I guess now is as good a time as any, eh?

I had the suggestion from my friend Kim to print the challenges onto paper and put them into a jar and each week pull one to do. That way it's random and I'll get to each one in the year instead of doing all my favourite ones and possibly not finishing each challenge. I was so excited by her friendly suggestion that I had enough justification to go and pick up this candle from my guilty pleasure, Anthropologie.

The jar is so pretty and I knew I wanted to use it for something scrappy after all the sweetness was burned out.

It was a toss up between this one or the turquoise one but since I love pink the best you can see which colour won.
Eep! I can't wait to get burning and get scrapping but not at the same time because that wouldn't be safe. But seriously 52 scrapbook pages in a year is quite a bit for me. And that's not including what other pages I create for the challenges at SkrapnChat. Oi.
Am I crazy for starting this? Okay, wait....don't answer that.
Last year I created 62 pages not including cards and such so I think I can do this.
Wish me luck ;0)
