Hello and welcome to month five 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 SPONSORS are Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs and Studio Liv MAY’S THEME: INDULGENCES This month we are going to talk about indulging ourselves. One of the meanings of indulge is to allow oneself to enjoy a particular pleasure. In previous months, I've given you a broad theme and asking you to create a layout that you want to include in this album that would give your loved ones a peek into who you are. This month, I'm asking that you narrow down and document the things that we indulge in that make our lives richer and better. I've shared some example layouts below, and I've included some of my own indulgences that I've previously documented . . . getting a regular manicure, enjoying a richly flavored coffee creamer, and making a pretty + yummy snack. There is no requirement for a specific number of words you must use on your page. You may be able to convey your thoughts and feelings with word art or photographs. To help you create your themed layout, Olivia and I have these coordinating freebies just for you!
