Only One week left to get those entries in!

I cannot believe how quickly our first month on What's Ad About had gone! I am loving seeing the gorgeous entries that have come in so far, and am hoping to see a few more! Hope you all have popped the challenge on your 'to do' list!

Gina has sent through a few hints and tips for adding journalling to your LOs

This first idea I am just ITCHING to try! Gina traced around a coffee cup in pencil, journalled in the shape and then erased the how this looks Gina! Writing lists is a great, quick and effective way of adding journalling to your pages...
I love the way that journalling strips look on a page. I reeeeeeally like how doing your journalling like this takes the focus away from your handwriting! (although if my handwriting was as lovely as Gina's I wouldn't have to worry!!)

Here Gina has doubled the life of a funky journalling spot by just cutting it in half! Two uses out of the one product!

Here Gina created her own unique journalling spot by stamping with StazOn ink and using watercolour paints to add a subtle, but fabulous colour!

Thanks for those ideas Gina!!! Hopefully you all are inspired to go create and journal!
Don't forget to add your entry by leaving a comment in the comments section of this post with a link to your entry by August 25th :)
