Welcome to the second “Lots of Love” challenge! I loved seeing all the creative titles that our members came up with for the first “Lots of Love” challenge. For this second challenge, the focus will be on using special journaling on your pages. As Valentine’s day approaches, it is a perfect time not only to create pages with those special photos but also to spend some time documenting our love for those special people in our lives. Here are some ideas for journaling: *make a list of the things you adore about your child or spouse *use subway art to write down adjectives that describe someone special in your life *write a letter * try to use a product that you haven’t used before for journaling (ex: chalkboard or tabs)…. and I am so excited to see what other journaling ideas you come up with for your pages!
Here are the details:
(1) Download this freebie pack filled with wonderful goodies from Katie Pertiet. (the link will be good until February 1st)
(2) Please use 2 of the 3 freebie items on your page and the remaining items on your page must be 100% Designer Digitals.
(3) Scrap those special photos….but try also to focus on special journaling for your page.
(4) Post your page in the Weekly Challenge Gallery by 11pm (EDT) on Monday, February 4th and you will be entered in the random drawing to win a $5 Designer Digitals gift certificate. Please put “Lots of Love” in your title or description so I don’t miss your page!
If you need some inspiration for the challenge, take a look at how three Creative Team Members used journaling on their pages.
I love how Merr (digigrandma) used a list style of journaling using both circles and tabs to document her grandson’s favorite items. What a fabulous way to record those little facts that we forget so easily!
