I’m French, and we’re currently in the middle of our presidential election. Last Sunday we picked the two “finalists” out of 10 candidates, and next week we’ll elect the “Président de la République” for 5 years. This event got me thinking about politics, and inspired this LO using A New Me, the April collab by the TDC designers.
I scrapped about my hopes for a change and about how less involved I feel compared to the last election. Looks like I’m getting more and more cynical about politics. Not sure that’s a good change…
Your challenge this week is to scrap about politics and/or, more generally, about the news: are you interested in them? Are you involved in politics, in a party, do you volunteer? Why or why not? Have you always been that way or has it changed over time? Do you share your political views with your family or significant other? Do you vote? Why or why not? What are your thought about the political system of your own country? What are your favorite medias to get informed? Do you read a newspaper, watch TV (if so, which channels?), listen to the radio, read magazines, check social medias or websites?
I hope this challenge will inspire you to scrap this topic which, even though it’s often rare in our scrapbooks, still has a place in our lives and, hence, in our LOs!
Here are the rules:
>> Scrap about politics or the news.
>> Definitely, include a photo if you have one.
>> Use whatever scrapbooking supplies you have on hand. (You don’t have to use something from our shop in order to participate here.)
>> Come on back and share your work with us! If you do, your layout could be featured in next week’s post!
That’s it! Our rules are simple. There aren’t any other requirements aside from that. However, if you would like to earn points toward free products, this challenge does qualify for Chicky Points. (See the Challenges Forum for more details.) ETA: the deadline to get the Chicky Points is May 3rd, midnight EST.
