'Take the Challenge' with Mou, September 2013

Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the ninth 'Take the Challenge' of 2013!

Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. The following Monday, we will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that week's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

September is here already! Apart from celebrating two birthdays in the family this month, we are also wrapping summer up. The children are back to school. Extra-curricular activities are in full swing. We are settling into a new routine. Busy times! Looking back, I'm cherishing some beautiful summer memories.
So, today's challenge is about creating something about your favorite summer memory or memories.
I collected some such precious memories in a mini book I created with GessoGelatosGel mediumStamper's Big Brush pensPITT Artist's pens, and some patterned papers, canvas and paper diecuts, stamps, stickers, and a burlap album from Little Yellow Bicycle.


I hope you too will take this creative challenge!

Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to this post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 9/13 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: One set of Gelatos® in the colors of your choice, and a Gelatos Tool Set!
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 9/16  to see if YOU won!
