~Monthly Challenge~

Some time ago, I read in someone's blog where they were participating in a challenge called PINT – Pictures I Never Took. I never did check out the challenge, but the idea has really stuck with me. So many occasions and incidents came along, and I didn't have a camera handy! Sometimes there was nothing to have even taken a picture.

So here is your challenge: We all have those memories, the ones with no photos to go with them. Let's dust off those memories and scrap them! Take an extra 250 points for each of these no-photo memories LOs you do.

RULES:
No actual event/person photos. Stock-type or generic photos are okay, but are not necessary and should not be prominent. An example of a generic photo would be a picture of a plate of pancakes with a funny story about my cousin and eating pancakes.

Use journaling to tell the story. Minimum of 100 words. Take DOUBLE points for all your journaling on these LOs! (So 10 points per word instead of 5.)

BONUS! 3000 pts
Use these no-photo memories to create 8 or more LOs (8x8 or larger) OR do a mini album smaller than 8x8 (8 double pages or more) OR do 6 double pages in a smash-type book.
