Default QOTD DSD Style: What challenges do you like to most? (10/02)

DSD usually includes a lot of fun challenges like scavenger hunts, scrap challenges, get to know each other challenges, ... some are easy, some are harder.
What kind of challenges do you like most and why? Do you like challenges that don't take a lot of time? Or do you like speed scraps?
Let me know.

I have a love hate relationship with scraplifts because Im a template scrapper lol but that being said they also make me stretch my skills. I like when we do the one where you scraplift the person that posted before you, so it makes you get out of your comfort zone and also see someone elses gallery ya know?

I also really enjoy all of the social challenges where we post a lot like word games or photo games etc


I CANT WAIT! Im so ready to shop!

I'm game for anything. While I'd like to say that I cleared my schedule for this weekend, I'm "single-parenting" it for a couple of weeks and I just couldn't free up my Saturday. I'm hoping we can get our stuff done and back at a reasonable timeframe as well as that the kiddos respect my scrapping time; that they aren't so demanding (like hey I want to go to the movies, the mall, etc).

This is silly and I know it. About the only thing I'm not fond of are the ones that don't have definitive answers, like guessing game. But that's only because I can't find the answers by myself to know if I'm right. That and I'm SO impatient that I have to wait until someone comes back with the correct answers. I always submit my answer and then I second-guess, worry that my answers are so wrong and won't count. When you know the answers are right, you know it counted and there's no worry/stress about it. That's me though, I overthink EVERYTHING!

I really LOVE the sketch challenges, I think those are my favorite. A few years ago, SSD had them on their FB page and I stumbled upon them while browsing FB--they were my best and favorite activity that year!

I enjoy them all, as long as I can get them done! If there's too many scrapping challenges that it stresses me out it takes some of the fun out of it!

I liked the scavenger hunts and the word games. I would prefer not too many scrapping ones because I am so slow and often don't have long periods to spend on the computer over the weekend because my family is home.

I would say any of the games. I don't do well on scrapping challenges during a weekend event like DSD because there is so much going on. I want to shop (if it's in the budget), and play games, and leave love and download my goodies. That doesn't leave a lot of time to scrap, because I'm afraid I'll miss a game which is a chance to win or earn a prize.

If I had to pick a scrapping challenge, my favorite is to combine 2 different templates! I love that one!

I like scrapping challenges (especially templates, recipes, and speed scraps) that lead to completed pages and any non-scrapping challenges which can be completed quickly. Best case scenario is that I get 4-5 layouts done over the entire weekend, so there always end up being some great challenges that I just run out of time for. That's also why I skip the time consuming non-scrapping challenges like scavenger hunts--I'd never scrap anything if I tried to do it all!

Yes! That one is fun. Can be challenging, but oh so much fun!

I can totally relate to that!
All those challenges can get very overwhelming.

Scavenger hunts are my fave as well.

The sketch/template challenges are my favourites because I can complete them in my own time during DSD. Speed scraps I find a lot harder these days (4 young kids, and they no longer nap), but when I do get the time to actually complete one, there's such a thrill at completing a time-related goal!

The social games are good fun too.

Scrapping challenges because they make me work outside my comfort zone and teach myself something new. Also it helps me scrap when I’m it feeling like scrapping.

I absolutely prefer challenges that don't involve a lot of time. I feel so overwhelmed when it's a scrap challenge because there is already the monthly challenges happening and it adds another dimension I don't want to think about.

Scrapping a page for example takes way too long unless it's a scraplift.

I like template and scraplift the best. I personally find hunts and word searches more time consuming.
