1 november 2011 prompt challenge

Wow - another month has passed - hard to believe!!! Time for another prompt challenge - you have until the 30th of November to play along with this challenge and the next challenge that we will post on the 15th of this month.  This month's challenge is to scrap about a belief, or philosophy you have – it can be something deep or something silly. It might be a religious or other philosophy, or something as light as your theory on how you can put two socks into the washing machine and only one ever comes back to you. Take this challenge as seriously or not as you would like to!!

Our prize to play for this month is a $25.00 gift certificate from Scrapbooking.com!!
