I'll put my hand up for one of those cards!

I love that you reversed the layout Alexa, this was a really tricky challenge for me as I don't gravitate to double pages - you have done a fantastic job of converting it to suit your needs!

Jennie Hart

That looks blissful Alexa. Great, great page. Jen x


Another magazine ad challenge?! Oh dear! How tempting! I love your colorful title.

Alison McInnes

Great take on the challenge Alexa...and love the journalling!

What a great page,Alexa....wonderful photos....and perfect journaling.
What is the font you've used for the title?

Another beautiful LO - I can see why you were tempted by the advert's design - look's like a wonderful spot that you walk to nearly every day. Like you, the Peak District has gotten under my skin since I was very young. Pxx


Alexa, you should be designing the adverts themselves! Such a pleasing look you have achieved here with your tweaks


Alexa, what a wonderful page you have made - a real Memory Page! I love the journalling that you have written; it's something special that you can keep for when your grandson is older (and maybe for when he has his own children, because then he'll appreciate it best!).

Sorry to hear you're having "one of those" weeks... Hope there's an improvement from now on.


I always believe that making a challenge your own is the best part of doing it. You took the concept and ran with it! Kudos.


And a card for me please Alexa. I love what you are doing with your year book. This Lo and memory is lovely. We are big on memories this week, we have a wedding anniversary, and are wondering where 27 years have gone. Any ideas? Hoping your week picks up.


What a beautiful page to capture a precious new memory and remember an old one:)

Any time you take a challenge and come up with a stunning page like this one, it's a job well done! I don't think one needs to follow the sketch exactly to qualify.


Love the time-out cards - you'd get my vote in the universe-ruling elections!
Love your page - what it is to be young and barefoot by a stream - bliss!


I love that you created a single page with this challenge:) I might just try this too xx


I am very slow in catching up on postings lately, life seems to be running full steam with me jogging behind. But once again, glad I didn't miss this because it is such a lovely post, Alexa. Your grandson will love looking at your pages when he is older, and what lovely memories and stories to share. Happy days....
