The first time I saw the Pinoyscrapbookers challenge dubbed Kayang-kaya Kaya? Kaya!, I was so amazed and excited and thankful at the same time. It was a very clever idea to have a monthly challenge. I was very busy on the first month so I was not able to join but I did manage to finally join this June.
One big reason why I love the idea is that it feels to me like I am joining a challenge for the sheer fun of it. I don't know, but I just don't feel pressured to compete. It's like a group of friends agreeing to a theme and waiting to see what each other will come up with. Nevertheless, the fact that it is a challenge still pushes me to give my best and push my creativity a notch higher. For instance, in the June challenge - which I totally love - we were required to make a predominantly black and white layout with only a bit of a single color. I wouldn't have thought of that on my own. It was difficult, especially with my choice of picture - the two kids of my friends Joey and Tricia. In my mind, layouts that feature children should be colorful, alive and fun. However, in this case, the story is about a heartwarming moment between young siblings, thus giving it license to have a rather pensive mood.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed making my layout and I loved how it turned out. Yup, it's another digital work. I'm really loving it! It compensates well for my lack of time to do a paper layout. Anyway, here is the layout. And don't forget to go through the other beautiful entries as well.
