I wonder
I wonder. That’s a daunting thought.
Don’t we all wonder? I probably wonder umpteen times a day about one thing or another. But really, what are the important things I wonder? I wonder, did I make the right decision? Is it what is best for me and the people that surround me, or does it make a difference if it’s best for the people around me as long as its best for me? How will this decision impact my life? What if I chose differently, then what would have happened? Am I staying true to my nature or going against it?
Sometimes I really wonder.
I hope
If I am to be completely honest, even though I hate to bring it up, I hope that I make a difference; I hope that I have enough time to continue making a difference and that when I am gone I will be remembered for making a difference. A difference in what you ask? A difference in peoples lives. I hope that I have added something positive, a good feeling, a good experience and a great memory!!!
I really hope.
I regret
I think regret comes more into play when you are older, when situations have arisen and you didn’t do what you would now with the knowledge you have now. I have lots of little regrets, oh I wish I would have done this instead, oh I wish I wouldn’t have said that, oh I wish I would have taken this path, you get the picture. But I do have one big regret, and its personal, it doesn’t affect anyone but me. I regret I didn’t pursue my education much further than I did. If I did not have this heart condition, which has really opened my eyes, I would have pursued nursing, or teaching.
I really regret that.
I know
A very powerful statement! Sounds like a talk show. The first thing that comes to mind is that things happen for a reason. There are reasons that my life took the path it did, and there are reasons things happened the way they did, and there are reasons why I always seem to land on my feet, and number one:: I know there is a reason why I am still here, and the reason changes over time, I have some purpose that is not yet fulfilled. I know I hope that the reasons keep on coming!
This I know.

The Treasured Hunt Week 3 Challenge

So......I made it through to round 3!!! Not an easy competition. I dont know how they are voting ANYONE out at this point, the layouts are that good. Very intimatdating at this point. I always have a good block of time on Tuesday afternoon as Jeromy sleeps about 3 hours (oh how I would love to just cuddle up with him!!), so the assignment comes out Tuesday morning and I try to finish it Tuesday afternoon, then I can coast the rest of the week and watch as the other entries are posted without having to worry about using someone elses idea!!! Good far anyway!!! So these are the requirements this week:

Challenge requirements: - Create a ONE PAGE layout

Layout must include: - Journaling from someone/something else's point of view (not your own)

- Use at least one pic taken from a different perspective. I'm not going to be terribly specific on this because I want you to be creative, but what we're looking for here is something other than a smiling face looking directly at the camera. Maybe a candid shot of someone looking away, a shot from behind/above/below, focus on a particular body part, etc. Also, the photo doesn't necessarily have to be of a person... USE YOUR IMAGINATION!!

- use at least 2 different mediums of alphabet letters in your title (ex. rub-ons, chipboard, stickers, diecut, etc.). These must be two different kinds of alphas, not 2 different kinds of stickers or two different kinds of rub-on, but a mixture, like one rub-on and one chipboard for example. You may use more than 2 but it has to be at least 2. Make sense?

And this is my layout......what do you think?

The Treasured Hunt week 2 Challenge

So I made it through to the next round! This weeks challenge is to scrap about something you are afraid of, using 3 or more patterned papers, rick rack, a rub on, and hand journaling of more than 10 words, here is my take on it:

I am afraid of.......not having enough Time with them
The competition is very stiff, not sure how much longer I will be in it, but its been fun!!!

The Treasured Hunt

So I entered this contest at . Its a 6 week challenge where you are give specific instructions to create a Layout each week, and each week there are eliminations. I made the final cut, there are 31 starting this challenge. So excited!!!! Anyway today the first challenge was posted and it is due on Sunday.

So the challenge requirements were:
One Layout
ONe Picture
One manufacturer for patterned paper
One arrow
The number 1 or the word one somewhere in the layout
One technique (sewing, inking, sanding, doodling). You could use any techniques but only one of those.
Cardstock ok

So here is my take:
