Hi everyone and welcome to our April Challenges. The topic of conversation everywhere seems to be our current international crisis and how it is affecting each and every one of us. So this month, our Journaling Challenge is documenting Life Right Now. Now if talking about the current situation isn't your cup of tea, you can interpret this challenge to be talking about any moment in your history where things were a little different. Perhaps you went through a busy sports season with your kids keeping you occupied at every waking moment. Or perhaps you went through a period of time where you cared for elderly parents. Or maybe you remember the sleepless nights when you had a brand new baby or puppy in the house. Here's my page for a little inspiration (credits linked in gallery): The rules are simple. Your title must be "Life Right Now" Journal about a moment in time Use 200 words or more If you journal in a language other than English, please provide a translation in the gallery credits There are some products that are well-suited to this journaling topic. Paislee Press has this set of wordart available right now on her blog (click image to go to her blog): And our up-coming April BYOC has some very suitable products for your scrapping needs for this topic, so you might want to hold off until you see the BYOC. As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the April Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread. The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).
