Journal your Journey

Starting this month I’ll be hosting a challenge at the Plum…  Okay, yes, I know.  I host challenges there every month as part of my duties as a member of their Creative Team.  But this challenge is something new and different.  For the next year, I’ll be hosting a monthly challenge that is all about journaling your journey.

I’ve wanted to scrap about myself for quite some time, but honestly?  I just never do it.  I really would like to create something that is about who I am, and what’s important to me…  something I can eventually give Lily-Ann.  Sure, she’ll have all my writing (yes, there’s a lot of it) but I want something that is uniquely personal.  And I know, in spite of the fact that this is something I really want to do, I know I’m likely to just keep putting it off.

Hosting this challenge is going to be the perfect way to ensure I actually take up the challenge myself.  So each month I’ll come up with a topic, and maybe a word art, template, photo mat, or some other goody to go along with it…  and we’ll all create something special.  Come the end of the year, each of us will have twelve layouts all about who we are and whats important to us.  It should be pretty cool.

So hop on over to the Plum and join me in the challenge forum here:  Should be an interesting ride!

  1. I found your blog and have to tell you that I love the journaling challenge. I’m a digital and paper scrapper so this is definitely something I am interested in. Also, I have just awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award 🙂 PS I will not be offended if you do not follow the “rules” … LOL personally I think 15 blogs is far too many. It’s a fun concept though! Wishing you a wonderful week!!! and happy scrapping 😉

    • Awww… well thank you. 🙂 It’s much appreciated. And as for the challenge, I’m planning on making it my official challenge for 2012 – so will be doing up a page for it just like the pages for 2010 and 2011. Once that’s posted you’d be welcome to post a link to whatever scrapbooking gallery you use to share your LOs so we can all see your journaling pages.

      • You are very welcome! And I can’t wait for the challenge to be posted 🙂 I look forward to it! I enjoy sharing and see what others share too. It gives inspiration for new ideas!
