JANUARY 9: Advice to your future self Today, you are going to be a good friend to your future self! She might still be blossoming into adulthood, or she might be working on retirement, whom ever she is she will need you. What is that you want your future self to know and not forget? Maybe is something silly as in, to remember to always go and have coffee with your BFF no matter how busy you are or maybe it's about letting go of old decisions dragging you down. Whatever it is make sure you let her know, there is nobody who knows her better than you! Here is my page: Recap of the Guidelines: 1. Scrap a page that gives advice to your future self. 2. You can include photos, or do a photoless page, it's up to you. But you need to have scrap product on your page (not just a photo and journaling) and you need to follow the 75% current product rule (see below). Since this is a journaling challenge remember to follow these rules too: Your journaling should be a minimum of 150 words, in complete sentences, to qualify as complete. Word art will not qualify toward your word count. You cannot use the same word 150 times. If you are not sure or want to check your word count go to: https://wordcounter.net/ You cannot use the same sentence over and over again. Journaling challenges are meant for telling stories; if your journaling is sensitive or personal, please message me or Julie (mrs2a50) directly to discuss. Your journaling should be legible and readable. If your page is not in English, we ask that you translate your journaling to English and post the translation in your gallery credits. If your journaling has been distressed or your font is too small to read, you should post your journaling in your gallery credits. Again, if your journaling is sensitive and/or personal, please message me or Julie directly to discuss. 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. Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).
