In yesterday's Three Way series, Write Me, Maybe?, we took a look at using journaling in creative ways on our pages, so we'll be challenging you to do that for April. But before we get into the details of our new monthly challenge, let's talk about the lucky winner for the March Alpha Challenge. Here's a peek at all the amazing entries watch them in full size in my FB album here.

Here's Karen's beautiful page:
Your page must answer the question "I Cannot Live Without ... ".
I'd love to see you use one of the ideas from our Three Way | Write Me, Maybe? article utilized, or one of your very own creative uses of journaling on your page, but it is not a requirement. Your only requirement is to tell us what you cannot live without. Here's a recap of the Three Way | Write Me, Maybe? article:
1) journal on vellum (and perhaps place over a great photo)
2) journal in bits and pieces on lots of layers of labels
3) journal with a combination of word/journaling strips and play with mixing and matching fonts calling out special attention to key words
If you need some additional inspiration, below are loads of fresh ideas from The Pink Ladies. And remember, if journaling is not your fortay, don't be afraid to incorporate quotes or song lyrics to help you get your message across!
Guest Pink Lady Shivani says she "cannot live without these every day moments at home!" How adorable are those smiles she gets to enjoy everyday!? I love how she used the vellum over the large photo as a place to tuck in her journaling in the form of a Word Art Quote. She also put her own heart felt journaling on the grid vellum. So gorgeous!!!
I love how Pink Lady Ellen talks about how She Cannot Live Without Aging :) (Specifically how age does not matter. Awesome attitude!) She uses wort art with different fonts as her creative journaling approach. Sometimes premade word art really does convey what you want to say best. So, if you are someone who tends to shy away from journaling, remember you can still express your feelings and get some words on your page this way!
Pink Lady Iva creates this masterpiece in black and white while sharing her love for her camera as her object that She Cannot Live Without. I absolutely adore all the different fonts that are on this page with the word art and journaling. Do you see how special words stand out here? So SO amazing!
Pink Lady Natascha uses her love of travel and visiting different places as her Cannot Live Without inspiration. Natascha created such a fun page with the C THRU map vellum and all those labels and tags to place her journaling on! So darn creative! The outlined alpha title in the different colors is pretty cool too!
Pink Lady Manuela created a gorgeous page showcasing the things she cannot live without: tea and knitting socks! Sounds like a lovely combination to me! I love the collage feel of her page with all those frames overlaying each other. A mix of word art with different fonts and a fun alpha for the title help Manuela get her words down on her page.
Budding artist Pink Lady Lili creates a quirky, artsy, and truly beautiful page expressing her Love for Paints. That photo speaks volume! So awesome! Lili puts words to her page with different fonts and tilts & enlarges each word for emphasis. Love it!!!
Awesome inspiration right??? Now it is your turn!
Off course there's always a little something for free under the FB Free Gift Tab at the and to be found HERE on the blog. :)
Wishing you tons of fun and Happy Scrappin'!
