NEW CALL: Good Grief Challenge Blog July Challenge

New Challenge: Thursday, July 15 – Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Welcome! We here have all experienced a loss. Together, we hope to heal. This site is intended to help in that be a source of inspiration and motivation...and to simply be a place to share and know that others understand. To that end, we (the contributors) have created these scrapbook challenges. For us, scrapbooking about our lost loved ones is therapeutic on many levels.

Challenges are completely open...anyone can participate and challenges are very much open to interpretation...take from them whatever helps YOU. Tackle them in whatever format suits you (layouts, mini albums, home decor, anything!). No rules.

(Note, if you're fortunate enough to have not suffered a loss, you're still more than welcome to hang out here. :) We know these challenges can be inspiring in and of themselves, without necessarily relating to loss.)

New challenges and examples will be posted on the 1st and 15th of each month. Between challenges, more in-depth looks at the contributor layouts will be posted. As this site evolves, we hope to add more content between the challenges and will look to you for ideas and suggestions.
