Reveal - 123 Challenge October 2019

Welcome to the Reveal of our October 2019 123 Challenge - and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us in our first few months back in action.  We have moved where to enter our challenges and ask everyone to put their entries in at our Facebook Page where we have created a folder for the month.  Please include your Name, Country and the link to your blog post (if you have one).  If you are not on Facebook please contact me or a DT Member and we will endeavour to include it in the folder for you.

Enough about our linking issues lets get onto our October 123 Challenge.....


Our challenge requires you to use the Sketch we have provided from pagemaps.com, which you can flip or rotate as needed – just let us know in your blog post what you did with the sketch and how you approached it.


You also need to use both of the words HAVE & STRENGTH as either your title or inspiration – and once again let us know how you have used the words on your layout in your blog post.

We have also provided you with three colours to use – PALE LIME, DIRTY TEAL & DENIM BLUE – which you must use, but they are not the only colours you can use as you can add other colours as long as these three are the main colours.

Entry Rules: To be eligible to win or be invited to be a Guest on our Design Team you must use the sketch, the words and the colours we have provided on a Scrapbook Layout no smaller than 8.5"x11". You also need to provide your name and country when linking your entry (at the top left of our site or in the August Challenge folder on our Facebook page). As our challenge is now a sketch, two words and three colours we ask that you create a new layout that is not entered in any other challenges. Most importantly – Have Fun!

Now we would like to share some fabulously inspirational layouts with you that have been created by our Design Team.....









And last but not least we can't end this post without sharing the identity of our sponsor for October- Scrapbook Fantasies.


Don't forget to include your Name and Country to be eligible for a prize or Guest Team spot!

123 Challenge Gap Year!!!

Yes you read the title right - 123 Challenge is having a GAP YEAR!!!

We can hear some of your screaming with terror, whilst others are breathing a sigh of relief....

This was not a decision that we have taken lightly, with a lot of discussion between myself and the girls on the team.  We have all had a very big 2017, along with many of our regular entrants - some has been good, some has been not so good - but mostly it has been pretty hectic.

We believe that by having a Gap Year we can come back in January 2019 bigger, better and soooo much more creative.  We will be working as a team on our 2019 lineup of challenges and inspiration - whilst keeping an eye on the blogs of our regular entrants to see what they are up to.

Lastly we would like to thank our wonderful sponsors, entrants and past team members for their support up to now - and no they didn't know this was coming as it has been our little secret for several months whilst we all grieved and came to terms with having a Gap Year from 123 Challenge.

Stay tuned as we will be back tomorrow to announce our December winners....
