I had shared with several people my new years resolution of getting 100 layouts done. I decided to inspire me along the way, I'd make up a list of 100 challenges of things I don't do often on layouts or things I've always wanted to try. Well it's already 3 1/2 months into the year and I haven't accomplished a whole lot. So I decided to try to make myself accountable, I'd share my list with all of you! When I create layouts from the list in the future, I will share them too! If any of you would like to take on this challenge, I'd love to check them out. Drop me a line.
