January Hobby Challenge 2011

Hello 2011.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and we hope that you will have a blessed year.  As with everything new,  we would like to welcome on board another new member to our Design Team - she is non other than Sharmandeswari. To view more of Sharman's beautiful works of art,  please visit her personal blog here.

Now on to the challenge - With each coming month,  we continue to unveil our latest challenge - this month courtesy from our DT Coordinator Yatie.

Here is the challenge details:

Do you know that January is the NATIONAL HOBBY MONTH? Isn't it great that we have a whole month to indulge in our hobbies? Well, technically anyways. So for January, I would like for you to make a 12x12 or 8.5 x 11 layout on your OTHER hobby(ies) apart from scrapbooking. The twist of the challenge is that you have to INCLUDE SOME KIND OF ELEMENT OF YOUR HOBBY in the layout, not counting the photo. e.g. like me, I like beading so I can include beads in the layout. Or if you like swimming, then a water element should be included say a stamped or doodle of waves. Or if your hobby is shopping you can include tags from your purchases. 
Here is DT Yatie's take on the challenge.  She has very cleverly added elements of her other hobby which is beading onto her layout making it such a unique piece of work.


DT Amelia with her Jazzercise routine packs a punch with so much energy with the numbers and photos.

Listening to music is another hobby of DT Jessy's and she has very cleverly used some music scores to emphasize her hobby.

Need we say more with DT Nad's take?  A self-professed shopaholic with her tags and photos of her shopping - she has a lady's ultimate favourite hobby scrapped there.  :)

Sharman debuts with a beautiful romantic layout which reflects on her favourite hobby which is reading romantic novels and beach getaways.  Love the intricate work here.

DT Wati has caught the travelling bug and we love the way she has included her air ticket stub and stamp in her misted layout.

Photography is DT MIchelle's other favourite hobby.  She has included a self-made camera with herself in the lens in her take on the challenge.

What is your take on this challenge?  We look forward to learning more on your other hobbies than scrapbooking and here is the RAK generously donated by DT Yatie.
