I'm sure many of us have spent this day reflecting on where we were 10 years ago & how all of our lives have changed since then. As scrappers, we often put our emotions on the page & this layout by Lori is such a wonderful example of how to express your feelings through your layouts *click on the image to read the text*.
Two of our weekly challenges reflect this important day in history. First up is the Word of the Week Challenge which runs from Sunday, September 11 to Saturday, September 17. In honor of this day in history, Karina (AKA Queen Bee Designs) has picked the word Remember as this week's word. Post your layouts in this week's WOW thread by Saturday night to earn your points. Remember that to earn the bonus points, you need to complete each week's challenge for the entire month, you can find the WOW rules & point tracking thread right here.
Next is the Challenge of the Week Challenge which runs from Sunday, September 11 to Saturday, September 17. Jess (AKA Digital Harmony Design Studio) has chosen an inspiration challenge, you are tasked with using the word honor as the inspiration for a layout. Post your layouts in this week's COW thread by Saturday night to earn your points.
