This weekend, we celebrate The Lilypad's Sweet 16th birthday! 16 wonderful years of memories and lovely products and fabulous designers and friendships made. 16 years of helping people document their stories and lives. 16 years of changes and trends and styles. I experiment with different styles and challenges throughout the year, but the heart and home of my scrapping is the story about the fleeting moments of time and connections through that time. Connections to the past, the present and the future. Is it any wonder my favorite Christmas Movie is A Muppets Christmas Carol? One of the yearly pages I make is a birthday page for Munchkin. It's one moment out of the year, one day. But it tells about his life (where he lives, his friends, etc.) while also showing how much he stays the same (his favorite drink has been root beer for most of those interviews). I transcribe exactly how he talks (adding interpretations if needed) which captures his personality. He'll never be that age again with missing teeth or giggling at the idea of a big plate of pasta. His birthday page is a capture of that moment in time since I always do the interview on his birthday, even if I scrap the page later that year (or a few years later). When I look through his birthday pages, I see a little boy move to different places, his room change from diapers to video games but toy cars and Lego in all of them. Your challenge is to make a birthday page with at least a line of journaling. You can celebrate anyone you want - family, friends, pets. While I encourage you to try an interview, and get a different perspective, you need only include the minimum of a line of journaling. Challenge: make a birthday page with at least a line of journaling. Gentle Guidelines Reminder: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Your page must contain Lilypad product (pages with photos and font only do not count). Product from other stores will not be allowed for MOC; your pages must contain 100% Lilypad product (current or retired product from designers or guest designers presently selling at The Lilypad). Enjoy the celebrations this weekend! Don't miss checking the forum for a special online birthday party!
