October Challenge!

Hey everyone! Another month, another challenge.

October brings autumn/fall to some countries of the world, but for us here in Australia sunny long days have started and the hint that summer is on its way is overwhelming :)

I hope you all get a chance to play along this month. We have SOME AMAZING prizes up for grabs and don't forget about our Facebook contest!!! When you play along this month please remember to post your layout at our Facebook Page HERE where a RANDOM winner will be chosen to win this prize from our monthly Facebook sponsor 13arts
13 arts - Polish company created by Aida Domisiewcz aka Ayeeda. We provide original scrapbooking papers and mixed media products: water inks, pearl and chalk mists, water paints, many types of microspheres, acrylic mediums. We constantly work on new products to give you best scrapbooking and mixed media supplies for your artwork. Please visit our online shop (we ship internationally): http://13arts.pl/ and our blog: http://13artspl.blogspot.com/


Journalling Theme: "The Journey..."

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! 

Please welcome the winner of  our August challenge

  10. Hey guys. I didn't get to finish my layout before the cut off, but thought I might share it here anyway and say a huge thank you for the inspiration!! I wouldn't have been able to do this page if it weren't for this challenge.

  11. I have seen that these days, more and more people are attracted to digital cameras and the area of pictures. However, really being a photographer, you need to first invest so much time period deciding the model of camera to buy as well as moving store to store just so you can buy the least expensive camera of the brand you have decided to select. But it doesn't end just there. You also have to consider whether you should buy a digital digital camera extended warranty. Thanks for the good ideas I acquired from your weblog.
