Challenge Yourself and Surfin' the Web

Well hello June!  Where did May go?!

May 31st marked the end of a 3-month project I took on at work.  When asked to take it, I suppose I did have to think a bit first, since my "Lovely Life Challenge" could get in the way.  But I did say yes and boy was it fulfilling, and gratifying, and fun, and challenging.  So to all those living with their own types of lovely life challenges, I say this:

It is so good for the mind and soul!

There are some inspiring things out on the web right now and  they can be used as fun ways to challenge yourself too!

1.  Get it Scrapped is hosting a blog hop with new Creative Team members.   Get it Scrapped is one of my favorite scrapbooking sites - it's PACKED with ideas, information, and inspiration.  I love their newsletters.  You've got to see what the team is posting on their blogs - some gorgeous work!

2.  Jenni gives some peeks and words about her Mercantile kits for June and you can see all of the kits if their full glory today on the Mercantile site.  I was privileged to see and work with the Papercrafting kit, Antiquarian, and Mini Album kit and I'm in LOVE.

I can't WAIT to finish up the journal I'm making with the Antiquarian. ♥ LOVE

3.  I'm taking this class:

from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and today was day one and it is WONDERFUL!  You can sign up at any time.  If you've been wondering about using watercolor in your art, this is a GREAT place to start!

Have a wonderful and creative weekend!
