I've blinked and the month, not to mention the year!, is almost over! I'm pretty sure I say this every month, but wow does time fly by! Here we are, ready to welcome in October and prepare for the busyness of the next few months. I like to try to shift my mindset when I'm about to become overwhelmed and focus on the good things and what makes me happy. So for this month's journaling challenge, I'd like you to focus on some of your favorite things and write about them on your page. It's a great way to create some positive vibes. Here is the layout I made, journaling about some of my favorite things. I used The Lilypad's iDSD blog hop freebie - Treasured part 1 - which is available until Oct. 5, 5pm at each of the designer's webpages/links. It was perfect for my layout! If you haven't collected it yet - hurry up and hop around! As always, 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 $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad (new prize starting with the July challenges)! 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).
