    I love challenges! There's no better way to get the creative juices flowing! Therefore I loved playing along in the challenges and have already completed my 7! yayyyy! :)

    My favorite this month has been the random challenge. It initially had be stumped as I don't usually journal song lyrics on my pages! But then when I got into it...I ended up loving the idea and scrapped not one ...but TWO pages with song lyrics! lol :)

    Haw many have you played so far? Which 'one' (and only one) is your favorite? Which one has you stumped? :)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the monthly challenges here at The Lilypad. I have completed all 7 each month since I adopted TLP as my home base last August (2014).

    I, too, was stuck on the Random challenge this month. I usually don't think of songs as inspiration. It was a hand-lettering painting on Pinterest that I knew I wanted to lift digitally and the house made me think of an empty home and Bill Wither's song came to mind. I had to come up with a different feel for the page than the original inspiration. It was really challenging to emulate the hand-lettering since I don't have a tablet. I really dug into my alpha stash for it. I drew the hill and divisions with the mouse.

    Here is the inspiration:

    Love the TLP monthly challenges SO MUCH!

    Have to go check out your pages Pallavi. I LOVED your page Diane! After missing out on June's challenges bc of no time to scrap, I was eager to play along in July ... I think I have 5 or so done so far. Are you guys liking the mix up with a few new challenges thrown in the mix each month???? :)

    I'd have to say the Journalling challenge was my favourite this month. The magic moment prompt was just the kick start i needed.

    Eep! Halfway through the month and I haven't started yet! Typical of me, I always do things at the last minute. I have done all the challenges since I joined In April, so I am sure I will this month!

    It's all stewing away in my mind, and I keep checking the blog post to remind myself of the challenges and have a think on what photos to use...that's always my starting point :)

    I originally groaned at the random challenge, but then when I saw Amy's BYOC I knew exactly what to do and I really love how it turned out. Just what I needed to finally scrap this old pic of my pepaw.

    Here are my pages Jenn -

    I was also inspired by the Stars in Amy's new template set and Disney's When you wish upon a star was perfect for this page :)

    Next is this layout I made for my upcoming 9th anniversary. This song is one of my current favorite Indian song..

    Love your layouts!! I did all the challenges last month and I'm feeling stuck right now! I haven't done ANY!!! :( I'm looking through the list trying to feel inspired. I have a brand new (soon to be released kit) from ForeverJoy open right now and I'm visually touching and feeling everything to see what I'm going to make. I do love challenges because they limit my choices a little and make it easier for me to get started.

    Feeling stuck is never fun! I can tell u what I do when I want to play in the challenges but I m just not in the zone .... I just go through the challenge thread - pick up the challenge which seems the easiest at the time ... And see how other scrappers have approached the challenge . There's so much talent here that something or the other clicks and I come away getting inspired :) ( hope this helps - don't tell my lil secret to anyone though! Lol )

    I do this, too. Oops, didn't know it was a secret though.
