BWC #22: Topic and Technique (aka the ?OW Challenge)

Sharon and Brenda caught yellow fever from Marlene's Monochromatic Challenge. Take the proper precautions before you check out their scrafty symptoms. You might catch a variant scrafting strain:

ETA: In other monochromatic news, everything's coming up roses for Marsha in her response:

We are soon approaching another SHCG anniversary, our Quezztion of the Week's first on November 14. Christy started the tradition asking us to list 6 things we are thankful for. Since then, we've had 40 more questions, and two more to go until we begin a second year of getting to know each other better. (We missed a total of 9 weeks of questions, in case you were wondering why it didn't add up to 52.) I've always wanted to create mini los for each question and keep them in a book, so I've been waiting for the chance to finally share my idea for this BWC.

Choose a ?OW (either one you've answered or one you'd like to answer), and materialize it into a layout. If you chose a question that you've answered, you can cut and paste your response, and voila! Instant journaling!

I've compiled a chronological quick reference list of the ?OWs. For further detail please click the Quezztion of the Week link in the Categories sidebar of our blog, or pm me for further clarification.

1. Thanksgiving: 6 things I am thankful for using the letters in TURKEY.

That's the "topic" part of the challenge. For the "technique," your lo must include patterned paper on which you've added your own doodling. For example, one idea I got from a magazine, take big polka dots pp, draw stars in them, and scribble circles around the dots. Be sure to describe your additional doodling, and don't forget to check "Doodling" in the Styles section when you upload your lo.

I think this just may be what I need to "inch" me out of my scraft hiatus. I hope you have as much fun as I did rereading the responses and getting to know everyone all over again.
