September Challenge

Hi everyone! Welcome in September :-)
Holidays are over, we hope You had a great time and rest :-) And now You have lots of energy, creativity and willingness to join our new challenge:-)
This month we have a great one for You! We hope You'll like it :-)


Journalling Theme: Open theme...with a twist
For this month's challenge, you can scrap about any theme BUT you need to include your own handwritten journalling on your page!

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. Whilst the theme is open, you MUST base it on the sketch below and include your HANDWRITTEN journalling ON YOUR PAGE. Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long.



Please welcome the winner of our July Challenge
NUPUR PATEL
Not only is she our Guest Designer, but Nupur is also our NEWEST member of our Design Team - so a big HELLO to Nupur! This is what she has to say about her page:

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
[Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island]
Indeed a wonderful feeling
I paint, I dance, I sing,
Everywhere I look and everything I do
I see art
Love art
Life is super fun
I am happy
create feelings…
As feelings build memories and memories are to be treasured
Forever and ever.
its a passion...
I had so much fun creating this layout,

And now take a look at all those amazing inspirations from our Team 2!

Journalling Theme: "The men in our lives..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is!
