Many of my friends have been doing 30 day photo challenges on facebook. I have seen different lists of challenges, but the idea is the same. An idea prompt is given and you are challenged to post a picture to go with that idea prompt.
The very first time I saw one of my friends posting this challenge I was intrigued and thought, wow what a great inspiration for scrapbook pages, or even a mini album all of its own! Here is an example of one of the photo challenge lists:
If you are looking for a creative jumpstart, a blogging idea, or even some scrapbook prompts, this is a great list to work through.

When scrapbooking the pictures for each of these challenges, make sure to do some journaling as well. I think this is one of things that drew me to the challenge, it lends itself to journaling about the picture and why it meets the certain challenge criteria.
If you are too busy to do this in 30 days it is entirely ok. Just use it as a jumping off point to conjure up some creative scrapbooking ideas that are all about you! You could add these layouts to your All about me album or even create your own little mini album just for the 30 day photo challenge!
If you do your own 30 day photo challenge, Iíd love to see what you come up, please send me an email!
