Challenge #25

Posted by The Design Experiment on 1:31 PM
Happy Labor Day Experimenters!

Our challenge this week comes from Kim...she is encouraging us to look forward this week, to see where the future may take us.

Create a layout describing where you see yourself in five years. Where do you think you will live? What are your dreams, goals, hopes? Will you have children? Will you be different? What will the next five years bring you?


*Guest Designer work coming soon!


Here are the X Teams' Layouts!

5 Years
By Kimberly

Kimberly says:

I wanted to have a little twist on this challenge. Instead of where I will be in 5 years, I decided to do it on Olivia and where she will be in 5 years. I love how these challenges prompt me to think even further out of the box when I create. :)


5 years from now you'll be even cuter than you are now...you'll be 11 years old...still be the princess of our lives...still be tiny...and you'll still be spoiled with our love. Olivia

Take 5
By Emily

Emily says:

This picture is a picture I use for inspiration for my weight loss goals. This was Christmas 2003, just 6 months after my first son was born. I remember feeling so beautiful, so healthy. This was just a before I developed a golf ball sized cyst on my thyroid, before the pain and embarrassment took over, before tests, and biopsies, and the subsequent weight gain as my thyroid shut down. I so desperately want to be here again, healthy, thin and happy, and this layout is a reminder that I will get there, but it may take time.

Journaling: In five years I will be back here. Back to being healthy, thin, and happy. I know it may take five years, so I will give myself permission to take my time getting there. But I WILL get there.

In 5 years
By Sasha


In 5 years...2013...

...I will be 37

...I will have adopted a beautiful girl

...I will have my PHD

...I will be stronger

...I will still be in the Air Force "maybe"

...still a wonderful mother and wife.

By Leslie


"It's hard to fast forward & think where I'll be, but I know for sure 5 years from now we'll still be a family. She'll be graduating from college; so will he. He will still love me 5 years from now. It's just amazing and I LOVE that!


5 Years
By Amy


Where will I be five years from now? It sounds like such a long time, but I know it will totally fly by. My kids will be 14 &12. I'll have been married for 18 years. I can honestly say I can't wait to find out-it's going to be wonderful.

Now it's your turn Experimenters!

5 Things in 5 years

Great idea for the challenge!
Here's my take.....
down the road

Wow what a great challenge! I have been away on vacation and happy to be home but Hawaii was so beautiful. I can't wait to start scrappin all the pics! I am definately going to scrap this layout even tho I missed the cut off time cause I think it will be fun to revisit in 5 years and see where I am at.
