Thank you for joining Pixels and Paper and Child's Play for our joint challenge last month. It was fu to see the different interpretation from both teams along with some terrific entries.

We were working from this photograph and this set of criteria ...

Our MAIN winner for October is  Giorgia Rossini with her fun and quirky page.

We would like to send Rebecca Daly a small RAK and ask her to guest with us for January.

Ladies, please email me at with your address and I will make sure your prize gets away to you.

This month we welcome Renee Johnson as our guest designer with her take on our challenge image.

My name is Renee Johnson, and I live in the outer suburbs of Sydney, Australia. By day I coach gymnastics and look after my three adorable children, whilst my nights are mostly for scrapbooking. Whilst I have always been into journalling and trying to record those precious moments and hilarious comments the kids come out with, I fell in love with scrapbooking whilst trying to find a gift for the family member who has absolutely everything. When I saw how much better the photos looked rather than drably sitting I my album I became very hooked, and am still on a crazy mission to get through those albums and piles (and piles and piles) of photos.

I was inspired by this photo to dust off my very well used Stardust stack (by DCWV) and pull out a background which was almost the replica of the photo. I have hoarded this paper for years, not having any clue what to do with it but decided to force something to happen! After a play around I decided to stick with the yellows and greens from the background and finished it off with some offcuts and a whole lot of green from Graphic 45s Wizard of Oz collection. I really love when a challenge pushes me out of my comfort zone, and to use hoarded items Im not sure what to do with....

Please drop by my blog if you get the chance.

Thank you so much for joining in with us this month Renee.

You have until the end off the month to play along with us with our December challenge.  We'd love to see how you are inspired by our photograph this month.  Thank you for your continued support.
