August 'Take the Challenge' with Mou

Hi  everyone, Mou here and welcome to the eighth '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®.

Summer's in full swing! Around here most days are busy though with activities, work, etc. But in the little pockets of downtime, there are moments to count blessings, to just take brief break from rushing from one thing to the next... during these moments, I sometimes ponder over some words to live by.
 So, today's  challenge is about making something about your favorite  words to live by.

I did this little book of wisdom using Design Memory Craft's newest CHA release: Art Boards along with Gelatos, Stamper's  Big Brush pens , Stamper's Big White Pen, Gesso, Gel  medium, PITT  Artist's pens, and some diecuts, stamps, stencils, etc.

Here are a couple of spreads from the book.

I hope you too will take this  creative challenge!

Don't forget to  share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge  post at the Design Memory Craft blog with link to your project image(s) by  Friday, 8/16 and we will  pick TWO winners randomly to win  these.

The prizes for this  challenge is: One set of our NEW Mixed Media Journal Boards (pictured above), and a 3ct. Stamper's Big Brush Pen set. 

Don't forget to check back  on Monday, 8/19  to see if YOU won!
