Welcome to the August Journaling Challenge. This month we are using a tried and true form of journaling - the interview!! It is one of my favourite ways to find out information to write in my journaling. I give my boys interviews every year or so and the answers over time are really interesting to see. For the purposes of this challenge, an interview is any set of questions and the answers. And you can interview yourself, your family, your friends, your pets (and imagine what their answers would be), even an inanimate object like a favourite toy or a room (and again, imagine what the answers would be). For this challenge you must have a series of at least 5 questions and answers. You can have more if you want, but the minimum is 5. And the questions don't even need to be in full sentence form; sometimes just a single word evokes a response. I did a new interview with myself as the subject using single word questions to save on space (credits in gallery): And here is an interview I had from talking with my youngest son (credits in gallery). I loved reading it and comparing it to what he would answer now. Quite educational! I didn't scrap it at the time, but kept the interview with my important papers knowing I would eventually scrap it. And this month's challenge gave me the excuse to do it now! Please remember our 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. 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). I can't wait to see who (or what!) you will interview!
