July Challenge!!!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well.

Here today to reveal our new challenge for the month of July and to also welcome a new sponsor to our blog this month, along with their Design Team, the wonderful Swedish manufacturer Inkido

I hope you all get a chance to play along whether you are in the middle of your summer or winter holidays :) 

Journalling Theme: "Grow"

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 . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Please help me welcome the winner of our May challenge, the wonderful

Maja Stokk (Sweden)

This month, we also welcome the team from Inkido, who are this month's main sponsors.
