June KIU Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to another month of wonderful scrappy challenges! Being the first day of winter here in Australia the weather sure is COLD!! Its cold enough here in Central Queensland with a sneaky breeze (beautiful in the sun tho), so I would hate to know how cold it is down south!

Anyway, sadly this is my last month on the KIU Creative Team.  I have been on the team for a whole 12 months and have totally enjoyed every moment.  Some of my favourite pages have been because of the awesome challenges that we were given.  If you haven't tried any of them, you must give this months challenge a go.


This month your challenge is to create a layout on KRAFT/KRAFT PATTERNED PAPER using a "TIME LINE."

You will need to use a minimum of 3 photos (any size) and journaling, telling the story of what your "time line" is about.

This could be a collection of photos of your child playing a sport, dancing, or a school carnival, it could be a layout documenting certain events in your life, when you had children, bought houses, what you do in a day or month...

Inspiration can be drawn from anywhere as long as your time line is in chronological order, ie from start to finish...

Your entry must be linked to this post no later than 11.59 June 30th
