    October!? What!? MOC challenges are just around the corner!

    In the meantime I am excited to bring you the October Journaling challenge. This month we are going to do a little play on word association. You know word association, right? Someone says a word and you have to say the first thing that comes to mind related to that word. For example if I say pizza, you might say pepperoni. Dog..cat. Rain..umbrella, and so on.

    For this challenge let's use the concept of word association, but put a twist on it - let's do photo association. Choose a photo (or photos) to scrap. Instead of journaling the details of who, what, where, when, journal the feelings, emotions, words, or phrases that come to your mind when you look at that photo.

    For example, I chose a photo from our recent outing to pick apples. Instead of saying "We went apple picking, it was a beautiful day, etc." I jotted down some things that came to mind as I looked at the photo.

    The journaling reads: sun on my face, brilliant blue sky, the beauty of nature, the promise of fall, family traditions, the love we share, nostalgia for a simpler time.

    So there's your challenge. Look at your photo and think about the feelings that it evokes, then jot them down - photo association style. :)

    As always: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the September 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! 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).

    May we have additional journaling, as long as we've done a visible and significant amount of photo-association? For example, 5-6 feelings / descriptions and a small date/location somewhere on the layout?

    Had to write a bit of background so it made sense. But rest are feelings and associations.

    My DD took several horse photos at an event they were at. I wanted to do a layout including a horse, but didn't have a reason to do so until this challenge came up. I had such a wonderful visit to my youthful days doing this. Thank you for the fun challenge.
