Junque Journal/Album Challenge Contest! GO!!

Hello Everybody!! I am so excited to announce my very first challenge contest!!
**The Challenge**
   This is a challenge for you to create a unique, true to you, junque journal album that really is "Youniquely You!" TM
**The Requirements**
*Include some of your favorite things like colors, your favorite scrap style(s), favorite art clips, quotes, and anything else that says "this album belongs to ME!"
*This album will be bound either with binding rings or with a binding machine. I'd really rather not have altered notebooks or note pads.
*Your album will be judged by the audience.
*(A link to my blog placed on your web site or blog would be appreciated of course:o)
**The Timeline**
The contest will run through to the 30th of June. Then for two weeks (July 1st-July 14th,) everyone will be able to vote for their favorite album!
**The Prize!**
A junque journal album kit designed after the one I made prior to this contest! You can see it in the second post just below this one in the slideshow!
**To Submit Your Album for Voting**
Just click on the Linkie button below and enter all of the required information in the form as well as a pic of your album and a link to either a video of the entire album or page by page pics for viewing.
Okay Everybody!! Have fun! and I can't wait to see what you all make!!!
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
That's all for now. If you see anything I have overlooked, let me know!
Thanks for being a part of this challenge!!


  1. oh how fun Julie! I just finished a journal for my daughter but it doesn't fit the requirments for I sewed my pages together and glued them into a hard cover book...I will start a new one with rings, maybe make it a journal to store my favorite quotes in :)
    I did post my journal I just finished to my blog and utube and linked both to your contest. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!!

  7. Hi Julie! I've got an entry coming...the weather here has been playing havoc with my progress! Do I have 'til the end of the day to post it?...Nancy :o)

  8. Well Julie...I give up on you now! I was in the middle of posting my entry to the contest on my blog when you closed the linky! Thanks so much for answering my question!

  9. Hi Nancy.
    So sorry that you think I would be such a meanie.
    I have had trouble with my blog all day and the linkie is pre-scheduled to close for when I had set it for midnight tonight. It was not supposed to close yet. I will try to fix it right now. Hope you can post your entry.

  10. UUUUUGGHH!!'s just not letting me link up at all! I don't know if it's because I used Smilebox for my Slideshow or what the problem is! I have everything posted and I've tried over and over! It has something to do with the thumbnail! :o(

  11. Okay Julie! That's enough messing up of your blog for me tonight! lol I think I've now figured out some of the issues and I've posted my journal 3 times! That's the charm, right? So sorry for the mess. I think one has a photo...maybe! I hope you can count me in there somewhere at least once! Thanks very much! :o)

  12. Your journal is posted. I just had to approve it. Thanks so much for entering your really cute journal.


Tell me what ya think :)
