second challenge: this one is a colour challenge..... summer is here and it makes me think of the beach so for this challenge incorporate the colours blue, yellow and white into your layout........



third challenge: Quote challenge...... below is a few quote's i collected from quote garden....choose one and include it on your layout...i have choosen a couple of funny ones and some more serious of various topics...i hope you find one you like!

fourth challenge: New years day!....do you celebrate on new years day with particular traditions? how did you celebrate this year? OR did you set any new years resolutions? how are you going to go about sticking to them? choose one of these ideas about new years and create a layout about it....

fifth challenge: Billboard charts: the billboard charts has kept track of the most popular artists, albums and songs for more than 70 years.....choose a particular year in your life and look up the billboard chart for that year....looking at the music of that year see what memories come to you from the music that surrounded you....create a layout showing us these memories and telling us why these particular songs have memories for you....OR just tell us about your fav music from that year........

sixth challenge.....January 23 is national handwriting day so for this challenge i would like the main feature of your layout to be your handwriting...lots and lots and lots and lots of journalling....tell your story more with words than your photos or embellishments....
