December Journalling Challenge Debut!!
Hi everyone and welcome to the journalling challenge, this is the first one I have hosted so get ready for some fun. I know a lot of scrappers struggle with journalling so this challenge is also supposed to be a supportive way to learn to journal. Now don't get me wrong, I am NOT saying I am good at it, so this is for me too LOL.

Okay to kick things off we are going to keep it pretty simple to begin with. How about we journal about our Family
And Post your layout in the Sas-y Journalling Challenge Gallery HERE
Then post the link here so we can leave you love!! :)

Who is in your family, include your pets if you want, express your feelings, or funny anecdotes, anything goes as long as it is connected to your family...

Now you don't need to put photos in your layout either, you can just journal if you want. Try using some creative word art, or calendars, text on a path, the main thing is that the words come from your soul and you mean what you say. Remember that it is going to be read by people long after you are gone so it needs to be informative, and readable. If it's readable on your layout but not on the resized preview you post in the gallery, just copy the journalling and insert it in the description section when you post so that we can read it.

So lets see those layouts everyone, we have the whole month to do this so take your time and remember to check your spelling, I had the misfortune of mispelling something when I first started digiscrapping and got lots of pm's telling me so, how embarassing, but it did teach me to double check my spelling roflmho

Did I hear someone say posting bonus...?? Well yes you get a posting bonus, of course. And you will want to check out all of the challenges this month because the posting bonuses are bigger than usual to say Merry Christmas and Thanks for the support in the challenges.

Here's What you'll get if you complete the challenge and post a link to your layout here so we can all leave you love and so I don't miss you when I post the link to the bonus out.
And remember, if you use products from the SAS store you should enter it in the Sas-y Princess gallery and thread so you will be in the running for a $20 voucher to use in the store.

By the way, you will also get a bonus posting bonus from me this month as a celebration of the launch of this challenge!!! But it's a surprise, so no previews LOL!!!

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!
Tracy :)

This sounds like a fun challenge! Call me weird, but I love journaling!

I'll be extra careful on the typos too! Usually, what you see in my gallery has been design checked by me, but only rough checked o the journaling. I live with a professional writer - David proofreads everything for me before I print! But with the "warning," I'd better be extra careful huh? LOL

This month's posting bonus theme is very nice and our contribution to it makes this challenge even better, Tracy!

Thanks Nani, hope you enjoy the challenge. It should be fun even for those who don't like to journal. I feel it is a big part of Scrapping!! And I so need to get better at it!

Ambowife Designs 12-03-2008 06:54 AM

Oh Thank you for playing Tammara, I was starting to think my challenge was a flop LOL. Your layout is absolutely awesome and gave me a big giggle before heading to bed. My hubby is wondering what I am doing LOL. Left you some love and your posting bonus will be on it's way shortly. :)

Tracy, thanks for telling me about the challenge and to post my LO in the gallery! I'm sort of new to SAS and I had a bit of a hard time finding the challenges (even though they were staring me in the face! :o)

Anyway, here's mine :) Thanks for the pretty posting bonus - I love it!

This is just part of the story of Jack's adoption, there isn't room for the whole story :)

Ambowife Designs 12-13-2008 04:57 PM

Oh Karen that is beautiful, What a wonderful gift this will be for Jack when he is older as you build his story with these gorgeous pages of his history. Thank you for sharing this special time in your family's lives, posting bonus on it's way to you Sweetie.

Well I think I've done my duties for the month so I've now got some 'free' time, lol, yeah right, lol.

I'll be in on this one :D

Ambowife Designs 12-17-2008 06:21 AM

Free Time, that sounds vaguely familiar, I think I might have experienced that about 6 months ago. Or was that a dream LOL!! Can't wait to see what you come up with Hun!!

Linda, Love your layout and the journalling is wonderful!! I tried to send you a pm here at SAS to get your posting bonus to you but you might have the function for pm's turned off cause it wouldn't let me send you a personal message

Please contact me so I can get the links to you sweetie!!


ljd2007 12-21-2008 06:28 PM

Many thanks for the Wonderful PB..I got it earlier :)
I haven't a clue what's wrong with my accont as I have it set to recieve PM's as you can see in this screenshot of my settings...
I have not heard from any of the other Challenges so I suppose they can't send me PM's either..have you any Idea's what I can do? any help will be appreciated :)

Ambowife Designs 12-21-2008 08:14 PM

See the box below the personal messaging , you have ticked to only receive pm's from moderators and administrators, untick that and you should be right to go. Let me know when you have done that and I'll test it for you by sending you a pm okay?!!
Hope that works :)

Ambowife Designs 12-22-2008 11:03 PM

Lovely job JH. Great photo and wonderful job on the journalling too!!
Your posting bonuses have been pm'd to you. Enjoy!! And thanks for participating in my challenge :)

Ambowife Designs 12-22-2008 11:32 PM
