The Inspiration

In Bill Watterson’s comic series Calvin and Hobbes the main character, Calvin, is a young boy with a big imagination. His best friend is his stuffed tiger, Hobbes. Calvin sees Hobbes as a living, breathing tiger. These two best friends have many adventures together and one of them is Calvinball.

Calvinball is a game invented by Calvin. It’s kind of a mash up of sports games, with rules that are constantly changing as Calvin and Hobbes play it. They award points somewhat randomly and it’s a race to the finish… whatever that may be.

The Scrapbooking Challenge

During the month of March we’ll be embracing the fun, freedom, and flexibility of the game of Calvinball… but for scrapbooking.

This event was started by two members of the Get it Scrapped community. As Get it Scrapped has recently closed its membership ScrapHappy was excited to give Calvinball a new home.

The great news is that this will continue to be a FREE challenge!
