As I thought about challenges, I thought why not do a small rhyme journaling challenge. Using your photo's as a cue, try journaling using a small rhyme that you yourself author. I know this may be a bit of a challenge for some of us, so if anyone needs or wants help with it don't be afraid to ask. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just 4 lines is good, ;).

Example:
That sweet face
Those chubby cheeks
It's moments like this
My heart longs to keep

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...

I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!

Thanks for the Challenge Valerie it was fun. Although I don't write near as great as you do. Thank also to Dee for sharing her expertise in 2 colors for the fonts.

OK here is mine...

http://scrapgirls.co...h...i&img=14650

After posting it to the gallery I realized that it's somewhat similar to momentousangel's LO...I think I might have had hers in my head or something when I created mine though I didn't realize it....so kind of a scraplift at the same time!

How do I make the link be embedded in words like some of you do??

To do this when you are making your post on the board, click add reply, then above where you type there is a globe with a chain under it, click on the globe there and then it asks you for the url, which is the link, then after you put in the link it asks for you to enter the title of the web page. This is where you put what you want it to say, like "My Layout" and then it closes and walaaaa! All done, giving you a link in your post without it showing the link but still giving it, :).

Okay, Valerie - I think I'm going to be late with my challenge LO. Just trying to do too much at once!

This is such a cute idea - I hope to see LOs in the gallery with rhymes in the future!

I plucked up the courage and gave this challenge a go. And it was real fun. But I was disappointed when I posted it into the gallery because the title has gone thick and I don't understand why. I went back to my layout and it has done the same. When I highlight it in the text mode it does what it should but when I take the highlight off it goes thick . The Title should be the same as the journalling. I'm using PSCS2. Any suggestions would be great.

Here is my layout Peaceful

Oh dear I have made a mess of this. I fixed the mistake by deleting the layer and re doing it. But when I reposted it the border was gone!! :huh: I don't think I have the courage to post it a third time!!
This is the second attempt:Peaceful

The final attempt does look nice :disappearing-smilie:
