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!

Vanessa's Challenge #1 Entry

OK ... so I couldn't work out how to embed this into a blog post ... so I guess you'll all have to go visit yourselves! It's a plug n play 'smilebox' thingy ... so fun! LOL.
Here's the link!

Now this isn't Vanessa's usual thing - but I have to agree, it is definitely cute! LOL. Thanks soooo much for sharing this with us. It's always hard to lose someone we care about ... but if you can turn that into a positive learning experience and pledge (at such a young age! LOL) to make each day have purpose ... then your life, and those around you, must surely be richer for it. Thank you for reminding us of that in such an eloquent (but fun!) way.

You still have until midnight tomorrow to send in your entry!! What are you waiting for?????
Here's the deets ...

Vanessa ... you're doing your part to make our new challenge blog so much FUN!! I love that you're journaling using a different format than a traditional scrapbook page. It's a perfect example of alternate ways of getting your feelings and memories 'recorded' somewhere!

I love the whole Smilebox thingy ... so much that I d/l it myself and I'll have to give it a try!

Beverley is right ... you've gained a wisdom beyond your years because of adversity you've faced in your life. And, I appreciate that you're sharing it with us here.

Thank you Collette and Bev. I just think that the things I have experienced have made me into the person I am today and able to deal with things differently. And hopefully it will give me knowledge of how to deal with whatever else life throws my way. Thanks for the great chance at expressing myself!
