Hello, everyone! Welcome back to my blog - I am so happy that you are here today! It's time for the TN Time With Lisa & Lori June Challenge - are your ready?

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CDT to link up your entries. If you complete my challenge link your spread below. If you complete Lisa's sketch challenge link your spread on her blog - My Creative Endeavors. If you combine my challenge with Lisa's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lisa's blog. You will then have a chance to win my prize as well as Lisa's prize!  That's a chance to win TWO times with ONE layout!!

You can always find the rules to our challenge under the TN Challenge Rules tab at the top of the page.

Now, let's get started - here is my challenge for June:
(Challenge open June 10th - July 9th at midnight)

Create a TN, Bullet Journal, or Planner spread and include items on your spread for each letter in the word "HOT". Need some ideas? Think not only of certain types of items but themes and manufacturers names, as well:

H - hearts, hexagons, Heidi Swapp, home, Halloween, etc.
O - orange, oval, owl, overlay, outdoors (as in photos taken outdoors), etc.
T - tag, tab, Thickers, travel photos, photos of teens, etc.

Be sure to tell me what the items are that you used!

Here is the sketch that Lisa has created for us:

Here is my TN spread based on the sketch and my challenge - I used hearts, outdoor photo, and a tab:

I am back to working in my 52 Favorites TN. It is getting so fat that it is almost impossible to take a good photo with the pages actually in it. I will definitely be keeping that in mind when I start my next TN! I will with either use more of the pages in the notebook and be more careful about what can be seen through the papers to the other side - or maybe skip a page now and then to help keep it from getting so bulky!

This layout is my Week13 favorite. I had a lot of favorites from this week and it's always hard to choose just one, but I do know that those other favorite photos will go in my Project Life album and a few may get their own traditional layout. This photo is of Ada showing off her new jelly shoes. She couldn't wait to pull them out of her bag and put them on and model them for me!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Everything for my spread came from my June Counterfeit Kit. You can read all about my kit here and you can see how I made the foam backed hearts on my layout in this post here

I felt like my journaling strips got a little lost on the background, so I outlined each strip with my black marker and I liked it so much better!

How about a winner for May? I had 3 beautiful entries and I loved seeing every one of them! My winner is:

Congrats, Sandi! You are the winner of the alphabet stickers and die cut pack! I still have your address and will get your goodies mailed out later this week!

June's prize has not arrived yet, but I can tell you that it is some goodies from Freckled Fawn! I will get a photo added when they arrive later this week!

I would love it if you played along with my challenge! Just link up your project below by July 9th at midnight! Be sure to stop by Lisa's blog to see her take on the challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a wonderful day!

  1. OMG! SO adorable! I wanted to put patterned paper on the whole pages but I was worried about bulk...mine is SUPER FAT too! But I love dimension so I am having to tone it down a bit in my TN. I have glued 2 pages together to stop things from showing through! I just love this spread and Ada is so adorable as always!

  2. I love your spread Lori. Your granddaughter is adorable. How fun to have won again. I love the sketch and challenge this month.

  3. Lori: this is a FAB TN LO! Your interpretation of the sketch is just lovely and especially the soft mix of pastels. I also like the list of suggestions to go with your prompt which helps jumpstart the brainstorming for ideas!
