Write With Me ~ a challenge!

Hey all you KCB fans! It’s Monique here with my first weekly post on Kristin’s new blog! I hope you will join me each week while I challenge myself to journal more.

If you’ve seen any of my layouts, you’ll know I don’t journal much… as a matter of fact, I’m usually lucky if I manage to think of adding the date to a layout! So I’m hoping to do at least one layout per month with a bit more journaling on it – are you with me?

Here’s a break down of what I’m hoping to do on this blog each month…

Week 1- a challenge.

Week 2- provide you with some journaling prompts to help you get your layout done.

Week 3- show you my layout inspired by the challenge.

Week 4- thank you for joining me with a journaling freebie!


So if you’re ready to do some journaling, here’s this month’s challenge!

November Write With Me Challenge: Simple Pleasures.


  • Create a layout about one (or more) of your life’s simple pleasures. Be sure to include journaling (maybe aim to write 3 or more lines of journaling?) in your layout explaining or describing what it is and what it means to you. Photos are optional.
  • Create your layout using 75% KCB products.
  • Post your layout at the Sweet Shoppe Gallery or at DST’s Gallery and leave a link to your layout in the comments here so the KCB CT can oooh and aaah over your layout and leave you some love!
  • If you post a link to your layout by November 19th you will have a chance to win a free kit from Kristin! One layout will be chosen by the CT by the end of the month to win the kit of your choice.
  • Good luck and have fun!

See you all next week- I’ll bring you some ideas to help you along with your layout just in case you’re having trouble getting started.
