Starting this month we’re going to have a monthly personal challenge! you set the goal, track your pages, and hopefully we all get a lot more scrapping done

Everyone and anyone who wants to participate simply posts her desired goal to accomplish for the month in this thread - it can be 2 pages, 20, or more - it can be cards, pages, mini albums… whatever you hope to accomplish this month. You can keep track of your completed pages in your siggy though its not required - our goal is to have fun! Track by text or by ticker - ticker factory.com is one site I know of that has scrap booking tickers available if you wish to use a ticker.

Feel free to post your completed layouts and projects in our March Pages thread - you can post all, some, none - its up to you! Just have fun and get creative!! Don’t forget to see our sub forms to try a new technique, find a sketch if your stuck on a layout, or revisit past crops and challenges you may not have gotten to for additional inspiration! And remember to update your gallery, too

Jen and I will be requesting a special blinkie made for anyone who meets her goal to put in her siggy.

So… what is your personal goal/challenge to accomplish this month?

I want to finish all my older layouts (I hadn't been journaling since the printer broke (it's now fixed) and haven't been putting titles on pages for the last 2 weeks since I decided to order the cricut. I'll count them later, but there are quite a few (most without journaling).

Also I want my workspace 100% organized (been working on this for a few days) so scrapping is easier

I want to complete at least 5 of the March Crop Challenges

and I want to host a scrapping get together (I've got 2 friends who are behind too)

Sounds like a lot when I know I already havea busy month.

Ok, we just moved and all my scrappy and crafty stuff is in boxes all over the office! Oh my it looks bad!! So with that said, here are my goals:
  • find my desk and organize my supplies
  • complete the scrapbuilders
  • do 3/6 of the challenges
  • finish up the set of cards I am making for a gift
  • take and post pix of my star album I made

It doesnt sound like much (well the unpacking and organizing is a ton!) but it will keep be busy between everything else. Plus Alex really likes to wake up from naps right when I sit down at my desk.

I am going to set my goal at 10 layouts. With house renovations I don't want to set it to high.

I've bought more adhesive. I've nearly completed my mini album, and I've got to start working on the pages.

Only 8 more pages to do - but only 10 days to do them in. Will try to get them all done, but we will see. Either way, I will be happy that I got so many pages done this month!

I've added all the cricut things I want to my unfinished pages, but doubt I'll get to the journaling.

My workspace is 98% organized. I'm very happy with it.

I completed all the challenge pages, including the bonus

I had a scrapping get together planned, but ended up very sick so I had to cancel. Looks like that'll have to be an April goal

I did sign up for a scrapping retreat in May I'm so excited for it!!
