Merly Impressions October Challenge

Hi everybody! It is that time of the month again and we are here to challenge you once more!

As the nights draw in and we head into Autumn, we begin to spend more time with family and friends in the place we call home. Of course, home can mean many things to different people – comfort, security, love and so much more. So, for this month’s challenge we want to see what home means to you.

This month’s challenge is:

Home – What it means to me.

One of our design team has created a layout to provide a little inspiration:



This is me and my DH. When I was young I always said I would happily live in a cardboard box as long as he was by my side. I’m not sure I feel quite the same way now, but that’s mainly because my old bones wouldn’t cope with discomfort!! The sentiment remains the same, home is wherever he is πŸ˜€ I have used the gorgeous Hidden Treasures collection to create this layout. I love every last little bit of this collection from the papers to the embellishments!!

We can’t wait to see your creations!

Please add your creation to the gallery below before the challenge closes at 1:00pm on 12th November 2013. We will then choose our favourite layout to win a fantastic prize – a Β£25.00 voucher to spend on anything you want from the Merly Impressions online store. Wow!

We do hope that you have fun with our challenge and that we bring some inspiration your way. Every month I love to look through all your gorgeous entries but please make sure you follow the challenge rules as we are sad to have on occasion to remove some entries as they didn’t follow those rules. You can find a full list of the Challenge rules on the Monthly Challenge page but we would like to politely remind readers that:

  1. anyone who puts their entry on their own blog must link back to this post ( so that all your visitors can find the gallery below and enjoy all the fabulous layouts being created
  2. each creation entered must be β€œnew” (not previously entered into a Merly Impressions or any other challenge)

It can be difficult for us to view any of your entries linked through Facebook therefore we are kindly asking you if you could please post your photos on the Merly Impressions page as this should make it easier for us all to admire your work. You can also email your entries directly to us at and we will add them and link them through our Photobucket gallery.

Have fun!

  6. I have finally taken the plunge and created a blog to display my ‘badges’. Now I need to actually scrap something for the challenge so I can post it. Just need to make the time πŸ˜‰
