July Challenge

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our July challenge. THANK YOU all for playing along with our last challenge. We read so many beautiful stories and saw so many amazing pages! Thank You for sharing your stories with us!

On to our next challenge! This month we will play with... numbers :-)

Have fun and take care!!!

Journalling Theme: "Numbers.." 

 Pick a number and center your journalling around it. (i.e. FIVE men in my life, TEN quirky traits, THREE long term goals, or 2014--the date I will do ___)

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

 [May challenge winner]

Hi everyone!
My name is Galina Sazonova, I live in Moscow with my sweet family. I am a landscape designer, but about a year ago, I discovered scrapbooking and found it really exciting and interesting. ...
I like different styles and  to try something new. Today I  want to share with you my project for July "Two weeks before the meeting." This layout is about the happiest, but also difficult period of my life.... in just two weeks after this photo was taken I gave birth to my son.
Thank you and have a nice day!)
Galina's blog can be found HERE.

 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 !!!

This means that the design is set at a depth which is twice the industry standard, allowing the stamp to be used on a variety of materials.
