    Hello happy scrappers! It's time for another installment of the style challenge! So, technically I'm not sure that this is a "formal" style in the scrap world, but for our purposes this month, we're going to pretend it is. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to scrap in the "storyteller" style. Journaling. Filling the space up with writing. Tell.a.story. Your only rule for this challenge is to fill HALF your page with meaningful journaling that tells a story. Here is my example, telling the story of how we came to find and get aspen:

    Please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    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 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 seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth 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).

    Take some time this month to really express yourself, and tell me a story that means something to you!

    Yes! This is my kind of challenge - I love pages with lots of journaling. Now I just have to figure out what story to tell, hmm....

    Oh goodness me! This is really a challenge for me. I hardly write more than a couple of lines on my layouts

    Question for you: is that at least a half page of journaling (as in, more is okay) or approximately half, with the other half reserved for photos and elements?

    Here's my layout! I ~sorta~ told a story- much of the words are illegible- but my photo is completely journaled! ;) Let me know if I need to do a layout with a whole story! :)

    Thank you for this challenge - this is my first time here. My apologize - my English isn't good enough to tell a complete story - so I copied an additional text from Wikipedia about the Hightway No. 1 - I hope this is ok.
