Greetings cheeries!

For this challenge we will be journaling in multiple blocks or spaces, rather than just one.  Sometimes, we find that we want to journal about each picture individually, so we want to include a comment under, or near, each one,  Other times, we have more to say than will fit neatly in just one spot, so we need to break it up and spread it out a little. Sometimes we feel it adds interest to our page(s) to break up our journaling  Or, as in my example,  sometimes we start with one idea, but find that we want or need to say more, so we add on an extra journaling block - or even an extra companion page!

Here's a little background for my example layout:

As I've mentioned before, I am doing an entire scrapbook about COVID-19, and the impact it has had not just on society, but more specifically on my life and the lives of those I love. I knew I wanted to do a layout about pandemic panic buying and the empty shelves I'd photographed during my pre-shutdown visit to the grocery store. I started out just doing a general layout, but I found that I had more to say, and some favorite memes I just HAD to include, so I added a companion page that focused specifically on the "great TP shortage of 2020"; toilet paper hoarding and how rolls of TP came to symbolize 2020,

My original page that I submitted to the BF 244 weekly challenge:

Image

and the companion page it "needed".

Image

As you can see, each of the 3 blocks continues to document the empty shelves, but with a slightly different focus.

Your challenge is to breakup your journaling into several (at least 2) distinct and separate blocks or areas. You can do this on either a single page layout, or like me, split your journaling between 2 page:  either a double page layout OR a related companion page.

Fine print (LOL): 

1) Entries must be new single or double page layouts and may be digital or paper. (Sorry, no cards)
2) Journaling MUST be broken up into AT LEAST 2 separate journaling boxes, or areas.
3) May be combined with one other challenge that allows combining.
4) Up to three entries allowed.
5) MOST IMPORTANT: HAVE FUN!

Entries will be due 10.31.21

One lucky winner of this Challenge will be chosen at random to receive a $5 ACOT gift card.

Love it!  It is rare that I don't journal on a page.  The older I get, the more I find I cannot always remember the details of events or trips, and so I try to add some personal notes to every page.  Love your page examples!
Next week has been exhausting.

This is something that I have done A LOT so you know I love this challenge. I have especially been doing it on the layouts for my Twinkie and Sky ABC album. I am definitely planning on getting back to working on that this month!

Your pages are great!

Entry # 2

Heard the song "Who Says You Can't Go Home" the other day and this lyric and layout popped into my head. Took a bit to find pictures and even drove to a location to get one. it was so long ago I'm not even 100% certain I have the right building. Under the photo of each place I have lived, a placed a journaling block of special memories from living there. This was so much fun to re-live.
