    Hey there, pad scrappers!

    Is anyone else like me, scrolling Instagram and always behind on these "special" days like international dog day, world siblings day, string cheese day, shoes without laces day (not sure that one's real), etc?! Who makes these things up and how does everyone else always have a picture ready to post!

    Well, I have done some research so we will all be prepared for September. I have compiled a list of things to celebrate in September taken from nationaltoday.com (if you're interested). I purposefully did not choose actual holidays and I still don't know who started these, but here you go. Your photography challenge for this month is to scrap a photograph using one of the special days in September as your prompt. Let me tell you, there is something for everyone. You may even have trouble choosing just one!

    Sept. 1 - World Letter Writing Day
    Sept. 2 - World Coconut Day
    Sept. 3 - National Lazy Moms Day (As if a mom would be able to celebrate this!)
    Sept. 4 - National Wildlife Day
    Sept. 5 - International Day of Charity
    Sept. 6 - National Read a Book Day
    Sept. 7 - National Beer Lover's Day
    Sept. 8 - National Ampersand Day
    Sept. 9 - Teddy Bear Day
    Sept. 10 - Stand up to Cancer Day
    Sept. 11 - National Make Your Bed Day (definitely sharing this one with the kids!)
    Sept. 12 - GrandParent's Day
    Sept. 13 - European Heritage Day
    Sept. 14 - National Coloring Day
    Sept. 15 - International Dot Day (infinity mirrors exhibit, anyone?)
    Sept. 16 - Collect Rocks Day
    Sept. 17 - International Country Music Day
    Sept. 18 - National Dance Day
    Sept. 19 - Talk Like a Pirate Day
    Sept. 20 - National Pepperoni Pizza Day
    Sept. 21 - International Day of Peace
    Sept. 22 - Hobbit Day
    Sept. 23 - Redhead Appreciation Day
    Sept. 24 - World Bollywood Day
    Sept. 25 - National Daughters Day
    Sept. 26 - National Pancake Day
    Sept. 27 - National No Excuses Day
    Sept. 28 - National Neighbor Day
    Sept. 29 - National Coffee Day (lookin at you, Christa :-))
    Sept. 30 - International Pod Cast Day

    Just to clarify, this is a photography prompt challenge. Scrap a photo using one of the days above as your prompt. You may have multiple photos on the page. You do not have to take the photo on the specific date, or even reference the special day on your page. But please do tell me which day you used when you post in this thread.

    Here is my page. Inspired by September 5, International Day of Charity.

    I hope you have fun with this one. Can't wait to see your pages!

    Gentle Reminder: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the September Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    Stand Up To Cancer Day. My husband just finished his Chemotherapy treatments for stomach cancer yesterday. It's been a hard nine months. Chemo started in February, his stomach was removed in June, and then he had 5 more treatments after that. He is Cancer Free!!
