The challenge, should you choose to accept, is to create a layout about something that you do to have time out. What is the one thing that helps you unwind, get away from it all or just spend 5 minutes recovering your sanity levels!!
Would love to see what you create so please drop back here with a link so we can view and admire your creation.
All the best with the new challenge and thanks for visiting :)

This month's challenge is to create a layout based on yourself and the things you are thankful for. There is so much to be thankful for and sometimes others don't see what you see and I think 'you' is a great starting point.
Hope you enjoy this new challenge, can't wait to see what you create, so pop back here and link your layout. You might just inspire someone else.
Thanks for visiting :)

The topic for the October challenge will be chosen from one of the layouts submitted in September and special mention will be made to the person who submitted it.

This months challenge is to scrap a negative that turned out to be a positive (told you maths was involved!!!). My layout is about my love of all things music, she types this after a day of 4 noisy girls singing LOUDLY in the car! Growing up I was often told I was tone deaf and not to sing. Being told I couldn't sing just to stop me from singing. But it didn't stop me, as those around you would tell you I am forever making up songs and singing, humming or whistling! This layout is about the thought that if I wasn't told I couldn't sing I don't think I would enjoy music as much as I do today. I don't take it for granted and enjoy the noise that sometime envelopes me. I now know I can sing and have been told that I'm not at all tone deaf (thank goodness say those around me lol)
So this month's challenge is about something that may have altered your life, your way of thinking or just the way you are, for the better. I also thought of scrapping, and will do so in the future, about the arrival of our first daughter. She has a genetic skin disorder and we were told of the life to expect for her and us. Thankfully she is 1000 times better than the Doctors ever predicted and it's something we never take for granted and are very thankful for, a negative that turned into a positive.
Looking forward to seeing where this challenge takes you and would love to see your work, if you would like to post a link back here.
Thanks for visiting and hope the month is full of things to be thankful for.

Wonder what delights July will bring?! June has already shown it's hand with some cold (brr) days and some sunshine filled days. Winter here in Tasmania still brings out the best of every season, and usually in one day.
The challenge for July, hmmmmm what can I tell you?? It involves a little maths, maybe, a little of the past mixed with a little of today... I think that is about all I can say but hope it gets your brain tingling!
See you back here on the 1st :)

So how are you going with this months challenge?? Completed a layout?? Would love to see it.
And next month's challenge...
What will it be??? It could be something that happened once, something that happens daily, something insignificant or something so in your face you can't miss it. Either way its something that I think is worth thinking about and noting with a layout so others see how important it is. Curious??? Well, make sure your back here on the 1st (I usually update at night (Australian time)). I also suggest using Bloglines (or similar) so you find out when the blog has been updated. I love Bloglines and use it to keep on top of the blogs I like to visit so I don't have to remember them all.
Hope your feeling inspired to create.

I hope you are all having an awesome April and looking forward to the new month?
Have you completed a 'thank you' layout yet? Why not give it a go and then return here to post the link for your layout and we can admire your work and in turn you might inspire someone else.
Next month we will be taking a look back. For some it might not be too long and others it might be a few years. It might be about a story you have shared often, you might have even scrapped about it, but we would love to see your story. Its something that, I think, needs to be thanked and something that is worth sharing so future generations can see why you do what you do.
And that is the point of this blog. To inspire you to think and scrap about things that tell more about you. Things that might be forgotten, things that might not be seen by others but things that are worth sharing because they make up who you are and where you are at.
So next month will be about saying thank you to something that allowed you to be where you are today... what will that be?? Come back on the 1st to find out :)

I want to also say thank you to those taking up the challenge to say thank you to Elsie.
Continue to post those links as we would all love to see your creations and I have just emailed Elsie to let her know what we have been doing here in blog land and I will email her when a new link for a thank you Elsie layout comes in.
Thanks again and check back tomorrow for the new Thank You challenge for April.
Take care and thanks everyone!
Just so the links are in one place:
And mine is below :)

And if your stuck here are a few things that might help. You don't have to use a photo of Elise. You could use a photo of her book, a layout you did that was inspired by Elsie, products that may have been inspired by her too. I know that, after seeing it on Elsie's work, I just had to have a certain paint colour. I hunted it down and LOVE IT! So I am thankful to Elise for introducing me to Lagoon MM Paint!!
So you see there are many ways we can say thank you and just a word of warning next month's challenge involves thanking something from the everyday happenings! I have decided to go with something white that adds colour to my day... stumped?? well stay tuned and looking forward to seeing all those great thank you layouts!
Take care :)

1. As a way of thanking people who I wouldn't normally have the opportunity to thank. Through scrapping my thanks I feel I can then share my thanks in a wonderful way.
2. To inspire others to do the same.
What is The Thank You Blog?
A platform to showcase your thanks to someone and an opportunity to share that with others as well as the person you are grateful for.
Who can be involved?
Anyone! The Thank You Blog is primarily about scrap booking 'thank you' layouts of various topics.
How does it work?
Each month a new challenge will be set. You then have that time to scrap a layout and post a link to the layout here.
So for the month of March the challenge will be thanking ELSIE FLANNIGAN.
She is someone who, I think, has inspired many, gives so much and just loves life to its very fullest. I felt I needed to scrap my thanks to Elsie and through this thought I was inspired to start this blog and to start my very own 'thank you album' as a way of thanking those, in my life, that inspire or have inspired me. So please come back each month to be challenged, share and be inspired by others saying thank you to those impacting on their lives. Each month will be different, not always scrap related but always based on your life, because essentially that is what scrap booking is all about!
So come on this journey as we say THANK YOU.
Thanks for visiting :)
