September Scrapbooking Challenge List

September 2017 scrapbooking and challenge round up list

I'm looking at the calendar wondering how it got to be the middle of September. How?! This summer flew past and I apologize for not being around this month to get the challenge list up at the beginning of the month; I took Zae out to Virginia to see my sister and her family. Then when we got home we were all sick--right over Zae's birthday! Anyway, enough with the excuses. Here's this month's challenge list. I've included links to each challenge site's rules page, so be sure to check there for further information. Challenge site information supersedes all information listed here. 

All challenges here allow for 12x12 traditional layouts. Check challenge site rules for more information. Many of these challenges welcome alternate forms of artwork.

Unless otherwise noted, you can combine these challenges with others (but again, read the rules of each host site carefully if you want to be eligible for prizes).

Have fun creating!
