Hello and welcome to month eight of our new monthly challenge series, Finding Me In 2023. The goal of this series is to help you create an album of layouts specifically about you. Each month, a new theme will be presented along with one or more example layouts. By the end of the year, you will have a cover layout, at least 12 layouts, and an ending layout. The series is facilitated by me @gonewiththewind or Cheryl of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs). Each month, one or more TLP designers will sponsor. You may find a new product from the designer sponsor(s) to help you specifically create your layout in keeping with the month’s theme, an exclusive coupon to purchase product from the designer sponsor, or a random giveaway. THIS MONTH’S SPONSOR is Paula Kesselring AUGUST’S THEME: MOVIES This month, consider how movies have influenced your life. You could share your first movie experience in a theater. You might want to explain how a film changed the way you view the world and the people in it. Consider sharing a film or group of films that you continue to watch over and over again in your life. Think about the ways you enjoy watching movies - from the theater to VHS to DVD. Document your favorite movies from different decades.
