    Welcome, welcome! We're so glad you are here. We're very excited to kick off our 8th Annual Month of Challenges! (Can you believe it has been EIGHT years?!) It's going to be an incredibly inspiring, creative and FUN month. We can't wait to share the journey with you! We've discovered during the MOC journey that this month is about far more than the actual pages. You'll stretch yourself, get out of your comfort zone and scrap more than you thought possible! You will also meet new people that you will call friends by the end of the month. If TLP isn't already your digi home, we hope that by the end of the month, you will find that is has become a place you feel both comfortable and creative. Are you READY?!? Let's do it!

    In the spirit of MOC, please tell us a bit about yourself so that we can get to know you better. If you're new here, please tell us so we can give you an official welcome too. Yay!! Here we gooooooo!!!

    And just to make it even MORE FUN...
    Everyone who completes all 31 challenges in accordance with the guidelines will receive a $20 gift certificate to the TLP store. In addition, each challenge host will choose one page from her daily challenge to receive a $3 gift certificate to the store. In order to be eligible for this $3 GC, you need to post your page to each individual challenge thread, in addition to your main layouts thread. You do not need to finish all the challenges to be eligible for an individual coupon.

    As well, everyone who completes all 31 layouts will be considered for a full-time Pollywog spot on the Lilypad CT.

    On behalf of the designers and the Pollys, we all look forward to sharing this special month with you!
    Now, let's get our scrap on!!

    Hooray! So excited to be here for MOC8! This is my 4th year, and I always love the pages I come away with after a month of great inspiration. Thanks for having this challenge again in 2020!

    Yeah! This is my third MOC, although I think my first was not complete...so I hope that I will be able to complete my second MOC!
    I always love digiscrapping and I have not had time to do much of it in the past year, so looking forward to coming away with some new inspiration and pages for 2020!

    Thanks for all the work that goes into holding MOC every January! I can't believe that this is my 5th year at TLP for MOC. I already warned my husband that I'll be doing lots of scrapping this month. He wanted to know how that's any different than normal. :)

    Anyway, it's cold up here in NE Wisconsin so staying inside to scrap sounds perfect to me!

    Hi, everyone! I've been digiscrapping since 2004. I've completed the last 2 MOCs and participated in a lot more of them. Thanks to everyone here who works so hard to make MOC happen! TLP isn't my digi home, but I'm here on and off throughout the year.

    I have 3 tweens and teens. (Ahhh--how did they all get so big?) I'm also a preschool teacher. We live in a Virginia suburb of Washington, DC. You'll see the kids (and once in a while DH) in most of my pages.

    Yay! I'm ready to start the first MOC of the decade! I tried MOC last year, but didn't complete all of the challenges. I'm ready and raring to hit the finish line this year! I'm a Cali girl and love all of the friendships and support here at the Lilypad!

    Hello y'all! Just in case you are new, here's a little bit about me!

    My name is Cheryl Ashcraft and I’m a native Floridian living in Northwest Florida on the Gulf Coast. My husband Jay and I have been married for 26 years. We have two children, Olivia and Daniel.

    This is me and my husband:

    This is my daughter and son:

    And all of us together:

    I'm the creative behind Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs, and you can find my templates right here The Lilypad!

    When I'm not taking pictures, scrapbooking, or designing templates, you'll find me tending to my home. I love to decorate and keep a quiet and tranquil space for us to have as a retreat.

    I also love to make pen and ink drawings, and have started experimenting with watercolors. I love to read so you'll usually find me on my phone or Kindle or with an old school book, and every once in a while I'll still break out my cross stitching.

    If anyone has any questions regarding MOC or the challenges, don't be afraid to post your question, and tag me (@mrs2a50) so I see it faster. Y'all will be sick of seeing my posts before the end of the month!

    It is here!!!

    I have been so looking forward to MOC. This is my 4th MOC, and probably going to be the hardest since the first one. I can't wait to see everyone's pages and get some scrapping in.
    I need tips for scrapping on the go so that I can do it in my lunch breaks at work!

    I’ve completed MOC5, MOC6 and MOC7. MOC7 was a real favourite of mine. I worked on a single project, my daughters Make a Wish album, it was great to have a cohesive subject for almost all the challenges. I’m looking forward to this years MOC.

    I am from Alberta Canada. I scrap using Affinity Photo on my iPad.

    My name is Lilach this is my first MOC and I’m so excited about it!
    A little about me - I’m from Israel, mom of 3 kids ( 21, 20 and 11 ) married to an amazing husband for 25 years

    I have discovered the digital scrapbooking world on Sep. 2004 and become totally addicted to it. I have started to design and sell my own digital scrapbooking kits on 2005 at DSW and Digitals and On 2010 I moved to the Digichick and sold my kit there.
    On 2014 I got a great job offer with a great working hours and I found myself not having any free time to design or scrap so I have decided to close my digital scrapbook designed store.
    It’s been over 4 years since I have left the digital scrapbooking world. But...Can I stay away from digital scrapping no way!!! I’m now back and I love it!!!!

    This is us....

    Hi all. I did part of MOC 2 years ago, but completed all of last’s years. I’ve been digi scrapping for about ten years, but was doing paper scrapping too until about 5 years ago when I went all digi. I’m currently out of town so will be a few days behind. I’m checking in on my phone but probably won’t be around much for a few days. Good luck to all and have fun!!

    Thankyou for the lovely welcome.
    This will be my Third MOC to take part in fully. #5 I only took part in a few challenges as I came in too late.
    I am not sure how I will go this time as this will be a fairly busy month for me.
    I started digi scrapping way back in 2008.
