    I am going to cheat a little this month because for the one word challenge I have actually chosen a few words:giggle but it's something I have been thinking about lately. With all the bad news swirling around recently I chose the phrase -- Carpe Diem.

    From the dictionary:
    (n.) The enjoyment of the pleasures of the moment without
    concern for the future.


    Is that hard for you to do? To seize the day; enjoy the moment?
    Let's see you Carpe Diem this month and show us a layout documenting it.
    You need to use the phrase somewhere on your page, either for the title or in your journaling.

    The Rules:

    Please remember and follow the Lilypad Challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% of Lilypad product. You should post your layout in this thread, as well as in the May Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked!

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete all 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team! The first six challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the seventh challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    Nice one! Carpe Diem was my high school motto - we were told the translation was 'live for the day'.

    The actual translation is pluck the day. Which means of course enjoy life, live for the day etc.
    Sorry had to show off that I still haven't forgotten my Latin (studied so hard on that dead language at high school ;-P)
