Challenge #24

Posted by The Design Experiment on 8:08 PM
Hi There Experimenters!

It's that time again (albeit a little later than usual this week..) Are you ready for this weeks' challenge? It's a really fun one!

The challenge this week is:

Conduct an interview and scrap it! It can be an interview with one of your kids, your spouse, your BFF, your neighbor, whoever! You can ask hard hitting questions or just fun random questions...run with it!

You can use this challenge as a way to ask someone those hard questions you don't know how to approach them with, or you can even have someone ask YOU the questions! Have fun experimenters, we can't wait to see what you come up with!


Our talented Guest Designer this week is the AMAZING and newly crowned Memory Makers Master...Anabelle O'Malley!!! We are sooooo thrilled to have this talented lady with us here this week at TDX!!!

A bit about Anabelle:

Hi. I'm Anabelle O'Malley and I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer this week. I live in Delaware with my husband and five year old son, Ryan, who is starting kindergarten this week. When I found out what this week's theme was I knew I would have to interview him about his thoughts about starting kindergarten. He's really excited. Me? Not so much....even though he's gone to preschool for several years, this is a huge step and I'm super emotional over it.
Aside from spending time with my family and friends, paper crafting is my passion. I love to create scrapbook pages and cards! Connecting with other scrappers online is really important to me since I don't have any friends who scrap in 'real life'. The inspiration I get from the gallery here is great! Thanks again to the Design X team for letting me join them this week.

Time for K

Your thoughts on starting kindergarten (interviewed 8-18-08)
You hope your teacher has long blonde hair. You hope that there are Legos in your classroom. You want to learn about pigs and you want to learn how to write words that you don't already know. Something you're worried about is that they won't have a snack that you like. You want your new friends to know that you like to be silly with your friends. Most importantly, you are excited for your new adventure! I prat that all your kindergarten dreams come true.

Thank you Anabelle for your beautiful and inspiring layout and your support of TDX!
