    January 7th : The Bucket List
    Hello!!!!
    Happy Monday , hope you are all having a great time and feeling accomplished at the start of the second week of MOC!!!
    One of the things I love about MOC is also one of the main things I love about the scrapbooking in general : the chance to get to know people through their pages, and feel closer to our community even if not talking one to one often. Some of the most treasured friends in my life are scrappers whom I got to know through their pages, and this challenge will give us the opportunity to know a bit more about our dreams and goals! As the title indicates, we are going to be scrapping our Bucket List!
    So, what is a Bucket List?
    Screenshot 2018-12-28 at 13.19.40.png

    The rules for your bucket list page:

    1. Create a page highlighting your bucket list of items you hope to achieve in your lifetime. Your list must have at least 5 goals listed. The list should be the main feature in the page.

    2. If you have already achieved an item on your bucket list, you should show that by ticking it off or making it different from the ones you have still to achieve.

    3. This is a list - no more than once sentence per bucket list item. You do not have to use complete sentences.

    4.
    If your journaling isn't in English, please translate the items/goals to English and post it in your page description together with your credits.

    In order to highlight your bucket list items, you can include photos or elements related to your list items, you can have fun with numbering your list with different fonts and alphas and you can create some fun title work. But remember that your list should be the focus of your page.

    Being as old as I am (just turned 60 last September!) I have seen mine change a few times, but the core of it remains… there is the number one that is to live enough to see my daughter marry a guy that loves her and probably see at least one grandchild, then most involves travel, places I would love to go to, or re visit, people I would love to meet, … so…what brings your heart absolute joy? have you got any of it accomplished? what is in your list?
    Here are some of mine - I made two versions, one trying to go for the clean, more minimalist style, and the other a fuller one, giving freedom to my element hoarder's heart :giggle
    I have used different fonts and highlighting the items that are done:
    -I will be linking the pages to my gallery in a minute, just in case you would like to see the products I used-

    Remember your page must include:
    1. A Bucket list of at least 5 items.
    2.
    A difference between accomplished and yet to be accomplished items.
    3. Journaling must be in list form; one sentence per item with an English translation, if necessary.


    Remember, please, you should also follow the general MOC and The Lilypad rules:
    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. 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.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    I'm so excited and looking forward to get to know through your dreams and hopes or life achievements...every page of yours is a little gem and has a a soul...lets see those gems shine!!!!!!!
    And in advance,
    Thank you so much for playing with us!!!![​IMG]

    PLEASE NOTE : updates and clarifications to my challenge will be posted here, in this post, as necessary. If you have any questions or need help, I will be trying to respond as soon as possible, then, if needed for everyone else, the clarification will be posted here :)
    I hope you enjoy this,!!!!

    1. CLARIFICATION : IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE "GOALS"
    A bucket list t me is the things I dream one day being able to do..... think for example, what would you do if you win the lottery?
    would you like to visit one country or city?
    some kind of clothing or shoes or purses you would like to own in your life time?
    it doesn't need to be a "goal" . Think dreams, hopes, maybe you want to go to some restaurant you have not been and you love the food....
    maybe you would love to scrap this thing or another......
    we are all artists in a way or another.... so, dream on!!!! imagination is allowed here!!!!! :heartlub:heartlub:heartlub
    If you would like help, tag me, or message me, if I know you a bit I maybe able to help, like I explain what happened with Angela a couple of days ago, she ended up turning a panicky thing into a positive after we talked!!!! (is explained a bit better in post #5)
    It happened with some of you on MOC 5I think, when the Challenge was making your walls talk...some of you who were the most worried ended up making pages you loved!!!!!!!! (and I loved too!!!!, of course)

    so glad you like it Jennifer!!!! will be catching up with you later on!!!!

    My dear dear girl..... don't think of it as "goals" think of things you would love to do if you won the lottery, or some dream of yours that you would love to happen before your life in this earth is over..... it doesn't need to be a "goal"
    I will tell you all the story of what happened with Angela when she was worried and panicking a bit about the "goal" thing in the Mood Board challenge...she called me, we talked a bit, and then, not only she got the page done for the challenge, but in the middle of it, she had a realization of how much actually she accomplishes...so she made a page about her achievements in the past year!!!!!!, I will make a separate post, but you can see it in @Angela Toucan 's gallery HERE

    you are an awesome talent, I know you will do great!!!!!!

    I found this hard to do as I don't really have a bucket list. So I had to really think about it.
