Challenge #34

Hey Experimenters!

Here we are at Challenge #34! Wow!

Sometimes laughter IS the best medicine! It can change your mood instantaneously or help you in certain situations...so this week we want to know about what makes you laugh!

Laughter is so good for the soul! Tell me what makes you laugh! Is it a family member? Something that happened the other day? Something someone said or did? Better yet....is it something YOU did that you can't stop laughing about?

This week our beautiful and amazingly talented and sweet Guest Designer is Lisa Dickinson!

A Bit About Lisa:

I am a 36 year-old wife, mama to two, and graphic designer living in Erie, Colorado. I've been scrapping for about 10 years now and I love that it combines my passion for photography and story-telling in one medium. My style is casually simple and somewhat eclectic, using a variety of products and materials. I especially enjoy documenting the everyday things in our lives: funny things my kids say, a great meal we enjoyed, or a fun trip to the park. I'm currently a Simple Gal with Simple Scrapbooks magazine and I'm also a member of the KI Memories design team. I've been published in Simple Scrapbooks, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks, Etc., and Scrapbook Trends magazines. When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy reading, running, being outdoors, and entertaining my kids!

Thank you Lisa! We are so happy to have you here this week, your layout is beautiful and we are so inspired by your work!

Each and every day, you bring laughter to my life. Whether it's a funny thing you say, a crazy dance you do, or the unique way you wear your flip-flops, you are the comic relief in my day. Thank you for always bringing a smile to my face and for the daily reminder that life is good!

You Make Us LOL!
By Kim

You make us LOL, Laugh out loud
This was Hilarious!
Foster, you watched your little sister and her friend Grace floating around in the cold pool in this Styrofoam boat. You decided that is looked like fun and you wanted to give it a go. Well, we tried to warn you that the bottom would most likely not be able to hold your weight...but you were convinced that it would hold you. With that, you climbed in and pushed off. You thought you were so cool since it held you afloat...and even began to mock us because you were floating. Right about then, the bottom broke out and in you went...and I caught it all on film!!! We were dying laughing! 10-12-08

You Make Me Laugh
By Leslie

Leslie Says:

It was my week to think of the challenge prompt. My son had just told me the funniest story ever. It made me laugh so hard!! You know those old cartoons when the lightbulb appears above the character's head? Imagine that happening to me when I suddenly stopped laughing and went..."A-HA!" I had the perfect picture of my son's sweet smile and the journaling just flowed from there!!


You say the funniest things. You act silly. You always have! You do ALL you can to make me giggle. It always works! You are my clown. Silly boy - YOU are hilarious!! Oct. 2008

By Sasha


OMG I love me some Tyler Perry his movies and his plays cracks my shit up on the weekly. I have to watch at least one Tyler Perry play a week. You should try Madea on for size.

The Office
By Dena


What makes me laugh? The Office!! I love this show and anticipate watching it every week. From Dwight and his "QUESTION!" to Andy and his stupid singing, this is one of my all time fave shows that I can always count on to bring me out of a funk!

Our Crazy & Kooky Girl!
By Mia


Margaux, 2 years ago you came into our lives & have since filled it w/ craziness & laughter. There is not a day that we don't find something about you that makes us laugh. You're just being your crazy & kooky self. -11/2008


As you know, we are being sponsored monthly be the oh-so-generous Scrap N' Art Magazine! They are sponsoring us here at The Design X every month! We will be giving away a VERY GENEROUS prize pack each month for those of you who have played along!

Here's how it works:

There will be approx. 4 challenges a month. All YOU have to do is play along with at least one challenge during the month to be eligible for the Prize Pack!

Hint: The more challenges you play along with, the better shot you have of winning!

At the end of the month we will put your name in a hat (one time for each challenge participated in during the month) Ex: if you do two challenges, your name will go in the hat two times. Make sense? Still with me?!


You know the drill!
