May 2017 Challenge

12 posts in this topic

I decided on this month's challenge and then was a bit challenged to complete it. Since we had discussed journaling in April's Champions content I thought I would make journaling the challenge for May. Sounds simple right? Well, journaling that is not just describing what is in the photos is harder than I thought. In her video Crystal Livesay mentions that journaling our feelings can be cathartic. So I gave it a try. I purposely chose a font that was a bit ornate and harder to read and a color that blended in to the background to make my journaling a little bit hidden. Now that I wrote about how I feel about my grandchildren growing up maybe I won't feel so sad when I look at this photo next time. So here's the challenge:

  1. Create a layout where journaling is a main focus of the layout. Your journaling can be descriptive, personal, bulleted, etc. 
  2. Use any style....traditional, project life, or art journal.
  3. Use photos or no photos. 
  4. Have fun.

Here's my layout:

Upload your layout into the Challenge Gallery and post a link to it here in this thread by May 31st. You can find directions for uploading layouts to the gallery here and how to link the layout to this post here

And now for the prizes (all prize winners chosen randomly):

  • (1) $30.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  • (1) $20.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  • (1) $10.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice

You can only win one prize in the challenge each month.

I hope you'll join the challenge and good luck!

Journalling is definitely my least favorite pastime, so I decided to do journal about my passion. I also used the Jana Oliveira

Live Artistry guidelines to design the page

For something that is not your favorite, you sure do it well. I love the blended photo. Well done and thanks for joining the challenge.

Here's my take on the challenge. I love these types of challenges b/c I always end up with a page that I really feel tells the story and is worth passing down to my children!

I loved it when Ali Edwards said that journaling is words on pages.  I have been SO busy lately so I decided a page conveying the craziness would be perfect for this challenge.  Seems like a theme with me lately.  How many more years until I can retire?

Oh my goodness. I'm tired just looking at this. It makes a great page and it will be fun to look back on when you actually retire and see all that you accomplished in a month. Thanks for joining the challenge.
