November Challenge Round Up

Rules: I've included links to each challenge site's rules page, so be sure to check there for further information. I strive to post the most up-to-date information, but challenge site information supersedes all information listed here. Read the rules of each host site carefully to be eligible for prizes.

Deadlines: Challenges are due before the end of the month unless noted with a RED deadline date. Be sure to check the timezone of the challenge host.

Allowable Formats: All challenges here allow for 12x12 traditional layouts, but any of these challenges welcome alternate forms of artwork like cards and art journal pages.

Combination RulesUnless otherwise noted, you can combine these challenges with others, but again, read the rules of each host site.

    Have fun creating!
