April Challenge List

Apologies for posting the April List late, we suffered some flood damage on Thursday from the storm that was a result of the former Cyclone Debbie, Friday was spent cleaning up the damage and I was exhausted Yesterday as you can imagine, though it was my son's birthday so my focus was on him and it was launch day for Scrapping Fun Kits so the little I did do on the computer was focused on that.
I am hoping to be back to normal with my posting and sharing with you as of now.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

I will continue to update the Challenge List as more challenges go up throughout the month, so please check back regularly and see what wonderful challenges have been added.

Due to positive feedback I will continue to split 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.

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.

Scrap the Boys have said they will accept PL layouts.
Scrap the Girls have said they will accept PL layouts.
Kraft+ Challenge accepts tradition layouts, art journalling, tags, etc so this challenge would suit PL I think.

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) that your project can be anything you desire including layouts, cards or off the page so it sounds like PL will be accepted.

My scrappy friends who only scrap when at a crop, or who have stopped or reduced their time scrapping for any reason I think you will love some of these, have a look at each challenge and see what appeals to you.  Try to do one by the end of the month.


  1. I hope you guys didn't suffer too much through the floods, it sure has been a terrible ordeal for way too many people. Happy belated birthday to your boy!
    Thank you, thank you for doing this list!
    You are seriously awesome!

    1. Thank you Peg.
      Our flooding is different, it is due to faulty storm water pipes owned by the Council, we flood even when the town doesn't.
      As we are used to it we try not to keep too many belongings in the parts of the house that floods, so we didn't loose too much, but had lots of sediment and debris to clean.
      A few of us impacted by this are working together to try and get Council to fix it.
      Thank you for the Birthday wishes for Mr C.
      Thank you for the comment about the list, they mean a lot. :)
