I have submitted these long ago, but forgot to post them here. The Challenge requires that we use the backsides papers on our layouts and forget layering and handcutting and go graphic.

For the Backsides Challenge, I came up with 3 layouts -- each with a different feel to it -- just to show how versatile these papers are.

Here are my entries:

Layout#1: THIS BOY

Journaling: This boy had me wrapped around his finger since the day he was born.

Layout #2: ME @ 31

Journaling: It was only when I hit my 30s that I became a little conscious of my age. I try to embrace it good naturedly -- age is just a state of mind I tell myself. More so, these days, 30s is the new 20s -- and this will make me 22 soon. Who's afraid to grow old then?

Journaling: My track to staying fit and trim is not easy. I need to stop jeopardizing my health. I've been guilty of taking short cuts that are otherwise perilous. I have to start conquering my insecurities and unhealthy habits. I know it takes hard work, discipline and patience - - but I will do it because I owe it to myself.

The last one is my most favorite - - I think it's one of my top favorites of all time - - really resisted layering and handcutting on all these layouts. I'm totally interested on how the judging will turn out because of these rules - - plus if they will base the winners on how you are able to interpret the "inspirational" layouts on your pages. If you want to look at the other entries and the inspiration behind my layouts, just visit Webster's here.

Wish me luck.
