The biggest challenge for me is that we are SO CLOSE TO CHA!! I am a sucker for the latest and greatest. So I'm going to use that as an incentive to keep going and work fast!
I've created a chart to check off my progress, on this chart Ryan and I came up with some benchmark or checkpoint prizes for myself, as motivation to keep it going.
At 10 layouts completed I can spend $10. After completing 25 layouts I can buy myself a new tool, like a punch. When I have 50 layouts complete I can spend $15 on embellishments of my choice (this is important, because I don't keep a lot of embellishments, so I'm sure after 50 layouts I will be desperate for some). And finally I can spend freely again after I have finished 75 layouts. I'm hoping that I've found a dent in my paper and a new joy for challenges and scrapbooking that I've lost over the years. I'm hoping that I'm still inspired to control my spending and limit what I'm buying to only what I know I will use in a timely manner.
I hope you find some inspiration in this challenge and I hope you join me on it. You'll find my chart at the end of the post, you can download and print it so you can check off your layouts too!
