November Challenge!!!!

Hi everyone ! just popping in very quickly today to post November's challenge. I  am typing with 1 hand as I hold the baby with the other LOL You get the picture!!

I hope you are all well and get to play along this month. Cant wait to see what you come up with :)) 

Journalling Theme: "My Happy Place"

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 September Challenge

Tetiana Komarova (aka Taniko) 

Hello. My name is Tetiana Komarova, however in the scrap world I use my nickname Taniko. I’m 25 years old and I live in Kiev, Ukraine. Currently there are three important matters in my life: my family – all my time is devoted to upbringing of my son Timofey... well, and my husband sometimes:), postgraduate studies – for already two years all my mental efforts has been thrown to the writing of dissertation, and scrap – in 2010 I plunged into this exciting world and still depend on it.

I like to make projects in different styles but my favorite are american (for cadrs) and mixed-media (for LOs, albums, alter). I adore mixed-media techniques because they give me the freedom to express myself and appear to be the best tool for the realization of creative potential. I like to make lots of layers, play with texture paste and paint, use bright colors and fabrics in my LOs.

Now here is what our Design Team came up with. Please click on their blogs for more details on their creations. I am sure they would love to hear from you !!!

  1. Beautiful layouts... fabulous sketch to work with :D

  2. Gorgeous inspiration. This was a fun sketch/topic to work with. Thanks, y'all!

  3. I missed the linky :(
    but anyway - here is my take:

  4. I have learned some new things from your blog post. One more thing to I have noticed is that in most cases, FSBO sellers will reject you. Remember, they might prefer not to use your services. But if an individual maintain a steady, professional relationship, offering aid and staying in contact for four to five weeks, you will usually be able to win an interview. From there, a listing follows. Thank you
