May 2024 Challenge Announcement - Embrace The Journey


 Happy new month!  We hope you enjoyed our April challenge - we certainly enjoyed seeing all your entries!  

This month is all about embracing the journey!  Take a trip with us or go on your own personal journey - destination anywhere!

It is our hope that we can continue to use our word of the year in all of our pages this year just to keep that fresh in our minds, together with the monthly prompts or instead of them. The choice is yours!  

We can't wait to see what you create this month and what you choose to focus on!  Due to changes on Instagram it is harder to see the recent entries on a hashtag, so please also remember to tag us @mtw_challenge so we don't miss your projects.  


Design Team Inspiration

Let's see what our lovely Design Team have created this month. If you love their projects, please visit their social links, like or follow them on your favourite social media.


Taking a Break...
This month I have made another page in my junk journal, this time inspired by the image of the combi van.  I wish I was on holiday right now and so all of these travel-inspired words from this Carabelle Studio stamp really spoke to me.  More photos and details on my blog.







Let's get lost!
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
Some beautiful paths cannot be discovered without getting lost.











Hello! My page refers to the journey by the sentiment "go + see + explore". I put names of some cities as well. And the man with a bulb is a sign of somebody who is looking for some new places to visit them.
