More Inspiration from our October Sponsors

Hi everyone! 

Today I wanted to show you how the Design Team from our main sponsors for October interpreted our current challenge. 

First up here is our challenge..

Theme: The following quote..

great life quote.

We would like you to create a layout based on this quote. You can interpret it ANY way you like. There is no wrong or right way to interpret this quote  but your layout must incorporate something from this quote 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.

First up we have the team from Moments Of Tranquility..

Moments of Tranquility online store grew from the requests of the followers of Natasha Naranjo-Aquirre's Blog.  Natasha shows such passion and love for her favorite products in her work that her blog followers often asked if she sold it, or could sell it... and so the online shop was born.   Natasha stocks all of her very favorite items, specializing in Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx and Spellbinders Dies, Want 2 Scrap Bling, Dusty Attic Chipboard & Blooms and beautiful Pion Design Papers.  By specializing in a few select items she can always offer the best service to her customers.
Here is a link to the shop Moments Of Tranquility Shop

Next up we have the team from Riddersholm Design 

Riddersholm Design is owned by Connie Riddersholm and was founded in 2010 in Denmark . Connie has a background as a graphic designer and has earlier been into Web design and worked as partly self employed since 2004. It all started with Connie designing digital scrapbooking kits for her selves and later moved onto a few digital prints in 12X12 to see how they looked for real. Connie then had a group of hardcore scrapbookers to look at her designs and asked for their “honest” opinion.
They liked it and believed in it. So she decided to give it a go and invested her spare money into Riddersholm Design!  Today Riddersholm Designs sells paper lines in 10 countries and launch their new collections every spring and fall/Christmas

  1. My journal is hidden behind picture. The views of the journal are on my blog. Loved this challenge sketch and gorgeous examples. Thanks!

  2. Fabolous work from the GDT! Thanks for sharing :-)

  4. Thanks for your post. I would really like to comment that the expense of car insurance differs from one coverage to another, since there are so many different issues which give rise to the overall cost. As an example, the make and model of the automobile will have a huge bearing on the fee. A reliable outdated family automobile will have a more affordable premium when compared to a flashy fancy car.
