Challange YOUrself

Wow its that time again already! Start of the month means a new challenge over at Challenge YOUrself.
This month is to create a layout using Ali Edwards, one little word. This is one little word you want to inspire you during 2016, more information can be found here :)
The word I picked was 'Balance'.
Journaling reads:
2105 was a year of extremes. Spending a fortune then scrimping, pigging out then starving myself. I hope to find a better balance in 2016.
I used Like for ever smitten kit and texture paste for the background. I LOVE these gold thickers. :)
There were also huge wooden shapes in the kit, very much 'go big or go home' items so make a very eye catching embellishment.
Wish me luck with the whole 'Balance' thing, can't wait to see what you all come up with!


  1. Certainly best of luck with balance. I think restraint would suit me more - but might just go for 'enjoy' (which I don't do enough as i'm always worrying about the next thing). I love your LO - especially how you have used the texture paste under the photo AND embellishment cluster x

  2. Gemma, I love your take on this challenge. Your page is so creative and beautifully designed! Fantastic layout!!!!

  3. Really pretty page, and a word we could all take to heart. The fact that your layout is a perfectly balanced design is a very good omen too!!


Thanks for your comments. :)
