Welcome to a BRAND NEW month everyone! Thank you all for the wonderful support you continue to show us and with over 100 entries in the previous challenge you sure have set a task for our Design Team! We are still visiting some blogs ans hopefully we will have a winner announced in a few days.
SO let's have a look at the new challenge for this month!
Theme: Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring)
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Season" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.
Ideas for journalling: current season in your part of the world, favourite season, seasonal traditions on your part of the word, a childhood memory, a summer romance, what summer/autumn/winter/spring brings for you, baby it's cold outside, summer loving, spring is in the air, autumn breeze, summer holidays, seasonal changes, etc etc. Anything goes ..
Please help us welcome the very well known and superbly talented ..
Hi, I'm Megan Klauer! Being a mom of 3, I love to escape to the world of creating and scrapbooking as often as possible. It's as much about relaxing and being creative as it is about capturing and sharing those stories for future generations. I strive to journal on my layouts as much as I can; even if it's just a short sentence or two. I keep a blog: meganklauerdesign that serves as my online "art journal". I currently design for: A Flair for Buttons Flair, Crate Paper, Bella Blvd, & Jenni Bowlin. When I'm not chasing my own little ones around, I am doing on-location photography: meganklauerphotography; where I chase other little ones around with my camera in hand. It's a crazy busy life, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
