*Themed* Blog Challenges

This is a list of some themed, sketch and color challenges to help inspire me when creating.

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. You are welcome to use this list for your own inspiration as well, just be sure to familiarize yourself with each challenge(rules) as you enter.
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.

As mentioned this page includes only actual themes (there may be an anything goes theme here and there) - for challenges including anything goes themes I recommend visiting "Paper Playful" challenge registry. I will do my best to update this list every morning (my time) whenever possible. The date next to the day of the week will indicate when it has been updated.
