As you may already know, we are this month remembering Dawn, in a loving tribute to this awesome woman, artist , wife, mother, friend.... she was part of my life as are many of you, especially since she came to The Lilypad and we started talking a lot more often again. We know how much she valued family, how important it was to her... But you didn't need to talk to her to know this...in her amazing pages and in her amazing creations, it is all present. So this month we will be writing about Family. What does Family means to you? My family is huge, I couldn't fit photos of all of us in a page, so I went for the core of my family and my journaling is about what all "my families" mean to me, as sometimes we are closer to some friends than blood relatives..we are blessed The image is linked for crediting and reading the journaling - Just click on it and will take you there You can choose any style, you don't need a photo (but can have them if you wish) You can use Dawn's product if you wish but this is not a requirement. The only requirement will be . a minimum of 5 sentences of journaling telling us What Family Means to You . transcribe your journaling in the page description with you credits. If English isn't your first language, you can click HERE for Goggle Translate We all know the translation may be not the best but at least I will have an idea . Follow the Monthly Challenge Rules: 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 August Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.
