October's Challenge #9

Welcome to a new month and a new challenge.  We are going to be doing things a little different this month!  First of all, there will only be one challenge due on the 25th of October.  Secondly, we are introducing a word for the month.  This word will be our focus here on the blog.  We encourage you to think about this word and create something with your intrepretation.  This would be a great time to make a tag or maybe an art journal page - whatever suits you.  We will be showcasing some of your word projects here on the blog throughout the month, but they are not eligable for the prize - only the challenge.  So without any further delay, October's word and challenge!

UNCONDITIONAL:  What does that mean to you?  At first I thought of unconditional love or maybe unconditional trust, and then I thought of unconditional obedience.  What are your thoughts on this?  We can't wait to see where this will take you!  Make sure you stop back by next Monday for some more on this!

CHALLENGE #9:  Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts, don't they?  What will you always remember about your grandmother/grandfather?  Is it sweet, loving things he/she says to you?  Is it a hobby you both shared?  Is it a favorite tradition?  Maybe it's something they both taught you, such as being a hard worker or a person who values family time.
Think about the ways God has blessed your life through your grandmother or grandfather (or both!) and create a page that focuses on the blessings he/she has been to you.  Now some of you might be thinking right now, that you have nothing to say about grandparents, or maybe nothing good, but usually grandparents are apart of our family history.  So how could you tackle this challenge so that you have preserved your history?  Take a look at what our design team created, they too struggled with this and yet they perservered and wow!  

Scrapping Twist: Use lace or ribbon somewhere on your project.

Please create a layout or project that deals with grandparents and uses the scrapping twist of lace or ribbon.  Link your project here by October 25th for a chance to win an Echo Park Kit: For the Record or a guest DT spot! 

Here are some examples from our talented design team...
