December Challenge List

Welcome to another month  of stunning scrapbooking challenges, as the list has grown to include many International Challenges I have made a change to the list format this month.  I will be splitting the list into Australian based challenges and International challenges, so make sure you scroll through and check out all the wonderful challenges as many allow entries from all over the world.
Please if I have put a challenge into the wrong catagory let me know, I worked hard to be correct but we can all make mistakes.

I will update this list throughout the month as Challenges become available or I find Challenges I was unaware of or get permission from Challenges I am awaiting permission to include.  Some Challenges are not available until the 5th, 10th or the 21st of the month so make sure you check back for more fantastic Chalenges.

Please if there are any Challenges you are aware of that I have missed let me know.
I am really loving participating in Challenges, it is getting me to craft more often, to do projects I may otherwise save to do later, and some there is the added challenge of completing them when I have limited supplies that meet the requirements but that just adds to the fun.

So now for the list, I will provide a link to each challenge that has a direct link for it and either their Facebook page, website, shop, whichever is appropriate so you have all the details you could possibly need.

Those that are in a Facebook Group I will link to the group, please contact admins of the group to let them know you are joining to participate in the challenges or look at the challenges as some admins have requested this due to the waiting list.

ARTastic Challenge Blog accepts all forms of Scrapbooking as entries.
Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia accepts PL entries.
Show us your stuff accepts PL entries.
Scrapbook Boutique accepts scrapbooking, off the page, etc so I think it would suit PL.  The new challenge is posted on the 10th of each month.
Dusty Attic states in the August Moodboard Entry Rules (so assuming it is the same for December) that your project can be anything you desire including layouts, cards or off the page so it sounds like PL will be accepted.
