Challenge me!

I'm looking for some ideas. I'm trying to start a few small journaling/altered art projects that are outside of my comfort zone. I have tons of topics that I can come up with on my own, but I figured it would be more of a challenge if I use someone else's topic(s). And I'll let my blog readers give me the assignment. If you never post comments - now's a good time to start. You can post anonymous and just let me know your name in the body of the email or some clue who you are!!)

So help me come up with topics (general themed like the writer's journal for the party was unisex and general in relation to writing). Though I'm Curious George, I'll try not to read any of the comments until the challenge ends. After 10 days from today (end of day)I'll close the challenge.

Any comments after that day will not be included in the drawing or challenge topics. Once the product is complete. I'll put the names of all the posts (multiple posts equal multiple names) in a bag and the lucky winner will get the finished product (keep in mind it will take some time to percolate the original idea into the altered art.)

And I won't know who gets it until after product is finished so my impression of the person will not affect the outcome of the product. And if the topics are great (say I get a challenging word included in the options) I may combine one or more of the topics to make it more challenging!!

Are you game? Give me some ideas! Astound me (I love a challenge). The new dictionary that I received from Judy's gift at the Christmas party is beside my computer. I'm ready to be boggled!

Do a famous authors journal with pics, quotes and book covers. :) I want it! I want it! Especially since I lost to 'dirty santa' after having it in my hot little hands. :)

Kiss that Frog! You know the old saying that you gotta kiss a lot of 'em before you find the prince? Make a journal of frogs.

I thought of another one: CHARACTERS! You could do the personalities -- Sanquine, etc and beautiful faces from magazines and catalogs. Yum-Yum! I love J Crew guys and there's another one... what is it? Can't remember but I like rugged, cowboy types -- or literary types. :-) like Jack or Sawyer on Lost. I love it when Sawyer sits under a tree and reads a book. LOL

Can you tell I wanna win? LOL

Wow, the competition would be tough if the Anonymous comments listed their names.

Previous annonymous commenters, you may want to comment back and note which anonymous comment is yours, otherwise, it looks like the competition may be just between Jess and I.

how about inspiration/support - using quotes/sayings/images/etc.

How about one that symbolizes our beautiful state of Louisiana. Magnolias, pelicans, crawfish,shrimp boats, cypress swamps, alligators, etc. Celebrate our amazing culture! Only a "transplant" could get this excited about LA.

I say you tell the story of a family that has lost their patriarch right before Christmas. How separately they are a wreck but together they hold strong.
