*Themed* Blog Challenges

This is a list of some themed, sketch and color challenges to help inspire my creativity. Of course anyone is welcome to use this listing as well and I hope it is helpful. I try to update every morning, but some days I don't get to it until later. (I am in the US central time zone.)  As mentioned I am mainly listing themed, sketch and color challenges to help inspire my creativity. For challenges including "anything goes" I recommend visiting the  "Paper Playful" challenge registry.

Note: If a challenge has the word "max" followed by number (example max 5) this means  only  a total of 5 challenges may be combined. They are listed Monday - Sunday, so if you're looking for a specific day simply scroll down in this post to find the day of the week you are looking for.
