Challenge Me Happy Anniversary HOOPLA!

Welcome to the Challenge Me Happy One Year Anniversary HOOPLA!!!

It’s hard to believe, but Challenge Me Happy has been dishing out fortnightly challenges for a year today. This is something to CELEBRATE of course, and we hope you want to celebrate with us!!

You will have SEVEN challenges to complete in FOUR weeks. You can participate in however many challenges you want, and there are prizes to win in EACH challenge. 

Aaaaand – something we are VERY excited about – if you upload a project to EACH of the seven challenges, you will be in the DRAW to win a BIG SHOT machine + two Tim Holtz dies. This has been generously sponsored by Adrienne at Scrappin’ Patch ( – she is one amazing lady!

So – how does it work? 

Each Challenge Me Happy designer is presenting their challenge in detail on their blog (see list below). You will also find all links on the Challenge Me Happy blog – and the inspiration project to go with it. Each designer is offering a prize for their challenge – the winner will be chosen by vote. Each designer will ALSO draw a RAK amongst the uploaded projects.

Upload ALL your projects to the “inlinkz” page at the bottom of the hoopla post on the Challenge Me Happy blog. Please name your project with YOUR name AND the name of the designer who’s challenge you have interpreted. 

Here is the list to all of the design team blogs:

1.       Norine -
2.       Missy - YOU ARE HERE
3.       Michelle -
5.       Lisa -
6.       Hannah -
7.       Annelie –

One more thing before I reveal MY challenge. If you have ANY questions, please email OR ask us on our Facebook page (which you have liked already – right?). 

OK, so here is MY CHALLENGE:

Create a BOM page...or a "Book of Me" page.  This is simply a page about YOU.  The title or journaling must include these words:  "Someday, I hope to..."  That is all!  I know we mostly scrap our own children, so it's nice to break away from that sometimes and scrap a memory about ourselves.  Here is what I created using this prompt...a page about my husband and me on our honeymoon back in March 2000.  Someday I hope to visit Lake Tahoe again and relive our fun honeymoon memories!

I can't get enough of these awesome sketches from Sketch Savvy!!

And MY PRIZE is Two Authentique 6x6 paper pads!!!  Remember, the winner of MY challenge wins this prize, a randomly selected person will win a RAK from me, and one lucky lady who enters a page in ALL 7 challenges is eligible to win the BIG SHOT!!  Go for it!!


  1. Wow, this page is great Missy! I Love the MME and the photos are too cute. I am excited for these challenges! I hope I get some time to participate.

  2. This is a beautiful page, Missy!!! This is the second time today, I've seen that color scheme used on a layout and I LOVE IT!! Love the flower cluster and your journaling strips!!
