Join The 'Pen Pals' Challenge ...

Every other Friday we will issue a new journaling challenge and post our sample pages on the blog. We'd love to have you join in with us too ... & maybe we'll pick you to be our 'Pen Pal of the Week!'

How you interpret the challenge is up to you, we will mostly create scrapbook pages - but feel free just to journal/blog post ...or maybe adapt the challenge to your art journals, cards & altered art.

Leave a comment on the challenge post with a link to your blog or gallery where we can find your work ... & if you'd like to be considered for the 'Pen Pal of the Week!' Guest Design Spot, be sure to e-mail your entry too!

How Do I Love Thee ... Let Me Count The Ways Challenge #2





There's nothing new about using a list of reasons why you love someone as journaling on your page. Nothing except it's something I've never done and maybe there's a few of you scrappers who haven't done it either. There's lots of things that I love about my granddaughter, Breckin, but I'm not sure each one merit's it's own page ... or even if I have pictures to support my thoughts. But, I do want to make sure I preserve some of the current reasons ... one's that relate to things about her at three-years-old. And, I had this cute picture of her posing in her new jammies, that didn't have much of a story to go with it. So, I've combined the two to create this page for Breckin's scrapbook.

Journaling reads:
A Few Things I Love About You
1. I love that you always want to hold hands when we're walking together.
2. I love that one kiss good-bye isn't enough for you.
3. I love how we're always laughting when we are together. You laugh at my funny faces and I laugh back at you.
4. I love that you don't let anyone ignore you.
5. I love that you practice, practice, practice until you get it right. Then, you do it some more.
6. I love the shape of your pretty legs.
7. I love that you are so smart.
8. I love to share tomato soup and fresh fruit salad with you.

Your challenge is to scrap a list of things you love about someone. Your journaling can be done in strip form, as I have done here or you can write it out in paragraph form. You might even use a cluster of journaling tags with a reason written on each one. No matter what method you choose to use, be sure to write out the reasons instead of just using descriptive words. We'll save that technique for another challenge.

I think lists are a fabulous way to stay focused. Yours gives a very loving picture of all the things to love about a little girl, indeed!
