I mentioned in the last post that we are doing something here that we have never done before. Sure we have done a rak or 2 with different things but nothing that you could hoard in your stash such as scrap supplies...so with that being said....for all you faithful particpants that have taken this crazy ride with us we are offering you not only one but 2 $15 gift certificates to Noel Mignon Scrap Shop. Noel was gracious enough to donate the GC"s and we cannot thank her enough. She puts together the most fabulous kits around that are jammed packed full of scrappy goodies plus she has a store for you to shop in if kits aren't your thing. We figured since February you have been working hard on depleating your stash of stuff so why not reward yourself with some new goodies...One of the GC's will be given away for this challenge and one for the October 1st challenge. the winner for this challenge will be announced on September 30th SO MAKE SURE YOU GET THEM IN BEFORE SEPT 30th by 8 CST
Here is how you can win.

and participate in this challenge
good luck girls and on with this weeks challenge:
This week we want to leave our mark....yes my dear challenge lovers we need to break out those markers, pens, pencils, crayons whatever you have
use them to color in something on your page or make your own embellishments using these supplies. If you are not a big fan of your handwriting and you use the computer or stamps or your dymo label for your journaling here is your chance. Handwriting by you will be treasured by someone in the future. That is your challenge....
i love the way this journaling technique looks. i've seen it a million times, so i don't know where credit is due. i finally got the nerve to try it about a month ago in a mini i did.
i drew the wavy lines and then wrote the message in regular pencil. colored in the letters with colored pencils, then traced with an AC Slick Writer. the Slick Writer also worked great on the Jenni Bowlin journal sticker. a nice portion of neglected buttons finally found a home as well!
also, here's one full page of this technique that i did in that mini i referenced:
I used the best white pen around (I've tried them all) the Uniball Signo to journal in swirls.
i actually did a mini using SU markers, AC slick writers and metallic pens
here is some of the pages. You can see the full book if you choose here or here.
Hi There! Better late then never- Here is my contribution.. I took it literally and played around with actually using the ink markers as part of my layout! :)
