I was going to ask today if you've caught up with Jot magazine: but I don't think I need to! Lots of you have been in touch to say that you have been enjoying the first issue. Kim has done a wonderful job of pulling it all together and she's already planning to do it all over again with a new issue out at the beginning of September.
But before we get to that, there is plenty to keep us busy in issue one. Have you checked out the challenges? Jot would love you to have a go!. There are five to choose from (but, hey, why stop at one?) and I'm offering you..Challenge 3 What to Scrapbook When There's Nothing to Scrapbook About.
Make a page based around one of the prompts in my article and add it to the linky (thanks Mitra for being the first!). This is my page:
"The first books I can remember reading by myself. It was the drawings which pulled me in. Shift dresses, cloche hats in a 1920's English country idyll. I loved it when my Grandparents came to visit and was very envious of Milly Molly Mandy and her big live in extended family. Plus, who wouldn't want a red and white striped dress? It was like my school uniform..only better.
I saved up my pocket money to buy the books in the only bookshop in town and while I was browsing I discovered Paddington. That series was next on my list.
They all sit on the pink painted shelves in my daughter's bedroom now. I cut her hair in a bob when she was little. I think she knows why.."
Or, of course, choose one of the others they're all tempting..):
- Challenge 1 The Cafe Challenge
- Challenge 2 Mardi's 365 Mini Book
- Challenge 4 Photo Booth Layout
- Challenge 5 Janelle's Upcycled Vintage Instagram Book
but do choose. Jot is about joining in!
