Challenge #11: Habits

Monday, November 13th, 2006

Hi Everyone!

The layouts and the journaling over the past few weeks have been superb! Just superb. Thanks everyone for “getting your journaling on!”

We are proud to feature a special guest this week! We invited Amanda Probst, Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame Winner from 2006 and avid journaler, to offer our challenge this week. And she did not disappoint! Let’s get started:

Challenge: The challenge is to document some habit (your own or someone you love)
that you’re not proud of but that still is part of who you (or your
loved one) are (is).
The idea is that we need to document even those
things that aren’t all fun and giggles and good times. It doesn’t
necessarily have to be some deep, dark secret or something horrible.
Just something that you don’t go bragging about to others…something
you normally wouldn’t want to write down and admit. ~ Amanda Probst

Amanda’s page rocked! And our pages are below. Can’t wait see what you come up with. Time to pull those old habits out of the skeleton closet!

Challenge #10: Write A Letter

Monday, November 6th, 2006

Wow!!! Week 10 !

We are just flying with all of these fabulous challenges!! As always, we LOVE seeing what all of you do with the challenges each week, so keep them coming!

Now for this week:

We challenge you to write a letter to someone…anyone you want. You can write it to your sister, your mother, your father or a dear friend. You can even write it to yourself. We just want you to let your emotions out a little in your writing. It doesn’t have to be sad or sappy, it just has to be real. When your done with your letter, get it on a page and scrap it! Have fun with it. We are so looking forward to seeing your pages!
