Don't forget to leave a little love for our entrants in the comments!!! It's always nice to get a little encouragement B-)

A little bit of inspiration for you...

Here's Sami's take on March's challenge. Notice how instead of using patterned paper, she's included some hessian instead. Her circle is a flower which she's mounted on hessian as well, to add texture to complement her K & Co patterned paper and alpha stickers. A great example of using the word picture as a base, then making it your own with your very own style!

Feeling inspired? You have until midnight, 31 March to get your entries in. Don't forget to tell your friends!!

VOTING! We need your help...

It's soooooo hard to pick a winner each month - we love them ALL!

You may have noticed that we are now giving you the chance to vote for your favourite layout on the right hand side of our blog. We will be doing this each month from now on.

Will will announce winners on the last day of the month. You have until then to make your choice. Remember to tell your friends to vote for you!

Hasta la vista, baby!!

It is with regret that we say goodbye and good luck to the wonderfully talented Sheree Power.

You can still be inspired by Sheree's work on her blog so pop in every now and then.

This means that the Scrapping Word Pictures Inspirational Team are looking for someone to join them. You would be required to complete one Word Pictures Challenge per month. If you are interested, please send an email to Sami at word.pictures@hotmail.com for the details.

March Word Pictures Challenge...

Well, here it is! Better late than never. I'm just getting back on my feet and it still takes me quadruple the time to get anything done! So, without further ado, I present March's challenge....

Material List
10x15cm photos – 1 landscape & 2 portrait – 3 in total
1 x cardstock or patterned paper 30x30 for base
Patterned paper/cardstock pieces:
Paper A – 28x28cm
Paper B – 26x17cm
Paper C – 30x8cm
Paper D – 13x13cm circle
Paper E – 29x2cm

Paper Placement
Place paper A in the centre of the base.
Paper B is then attached just inside the edge on the left hand side of Paper A.
Add Paper C centred and 3cm from the bottom of Paper B.
Your portrait photos should be placed, one on top of the other, to the right hand side of Paper A.
Paper E should be placed along the left hand edge of photos – this is where your journaling should be added.
Your landscape photo should be placed on the left hand side of Paper E centred from the top of Paper B and the top of Paper C.
Your circle – Paper D – is then attached in the space between your landscape photo and the bottom of Paper B, over the top of Paper C. This is where your title should go.

Make it your own!!

I hope you have fun with this challenge. Entries should be received no later than midnight, 31 March 2009.

We have some beautiful entries...

Thank you ladies for sharing your inspirational work with us!!!
