Default Freestyle Challenge for April '08



Welcome to the April issue of the Freestyle Challenge!
This month is the beginning of Spring signs in Nature, and therefore brings us relief from the dreary wintry doldrums. Let's see how we relate to personal ways to 'cure' us of what ails us, whether it's the cold outside or a trying time in your life. We all need that special diversion, that little escape. So...
For this Freestyle Challenge, I want you to scrap about your favourite "therapy" ... what soothes you, relaxes you, calms your heart, mind and soul?

You may use whatever you want for subject, any font, any journaling, any item from any designer, but.... just a little detail left, and that is that I want you to have somewhere on your page, ONE ELEMENT OR PAPER totally created ONLY BY YOU!
That's it! ~ What is the therapy in your life that soothes you? And, create one item and put it on the page.
So simple, yet so complicated!
Have fun!

Stella

Default My husband soothes me

I love my husband sooo much! He is so funny and can always make me laugh! He soothes me when he is around (most of the time) lol. Hiking and vacationing also soothe me and that is why I choose this picture. We were hiking a scenic trail in St. John. I hope you like the layout and thanks for the challenge. I had fun!

Here's my April freestyle challenge. For my element, I made the blue ornament. Oh, I guess I'm supposed to tell how this LO depicts "soothing me." Well, it "soothes" or "relaxes" me when I can spend quality time with my family.

Aw, Ladies!!! You are making my heart so happy with your absolutely beautiful layouts! I've yet to go to each one to leave my comments, but I did look and they are smashing....sooo... since I'm back online, I will be sending you your well-deserved PB in a few hours. It's my MIL's birthday today and we're off to take her out to dinner.
See you soon!
Stella

The posting bonus is just beautiful!

At first I didn't even have the Freestyle challenge on my page of challenges for the month! Don't know what happened there! But I had immediately picked a photo for the inspiration challenge and then was sort of stumped on how to do the layout. EVERYTHING fell together when I finally added this challenge to the list!

I did this layout with In Only Seven Days by Digitalegacies. Digitalegacies is me, so there is my (at least) one item made by me! (You can get In Only Seven Days on my blog, one part at a time "in only seven days!")

Here is my layout - "Peace"

Default Great sutff!

Wow ~ you Ladies have been so busy! Thanks for your contribution and support to the Freestyle Challenge. I really appreciate it. It's so much easier, I know, to grab elements and papers from other people to make a quick layout.
But when you have to stop and think and make something that is totally your own, well, that requires some creativity! That is what I was looking for this month, and I see that you have come through, beautifully!

I will be sending your posting bonus to you asap... with my deep appreciation!

The month is nearly over, so I hope you will join me again in the month of May for another Freestyle Challenge round. I'm totally blown away by your beautiful layouts, and I hope to see more...

Stella

This is SO cute! What a creative way to convey a message, by using the very thing that creates relaxation... thank you for sharing! I'll be sending out the last posting bonuses in a couple of days, ok?
cheers
