October 1st Challenge ***WINNERS***

Well hello everyone. How are you all going with our current challenge

It's time to announce the winners of our last challenge. The challenge last time was.. ..

Journalling Criteria: WRITE  2 noteworthy (to you anyway) events of the past week. Your journalling can be as long as you wishThere is NO limit to how much journalling you include but in order to qualify as a winner for this challenge, we must see AT LEAST 1 SENTENCE of journalling on WHY each event was noteworthy. 

And the use of this sketch...

Just remember that besides the sketch, we are very committed to seeing the journalling criteria on your pages, and unfortunately we again had to over look some stunning projects because they had only followed the sketch. We do not mind what language you write in, but we need to see some journalling that sticks pretty close to the criteria set. 

Well anyway, it is with GREAT pleasure that I announce the winner of our last challenge, who gets to be our Guest designer in November..

Keren Tamir from Canada 

Keren, it is so wonderful to see your style evolve over the months. This layout was voted as a winner from all the design team. The flower placement, the colours and the soft feel to this layout is just perfect for the photo and the journalling. The butterflies are reminiscent of a lovely and heart-warming dream, which I hope this little girl is having even though her experience with the dentist wasn't the best!

As the winner of our October 1st challenge, you also win this collection from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker

as well as this badge to display on your blog
