Challenge of Me: Wrap-up

Here are some highlights from the Challenge of Me workshop I recently finished at BPS. We made 28 layouts in 28 days. Hmm... sounds kind of like LOAD. Oh wait, that's THIS month! More on LOAD later. First, here's what I made in January. These came together pretty quickly, once I got on a roll. I got in the groove of writing up the journaling (where applicable) the night before, and then assembling the page the following morning during Maddie's nap & Jillsie's Sesame Street. For those of you who are still baffled by my scrapping, just think of it in the same way you would think of an hour with a good book--a great escape and workout for the brain.

Oh nice job on your challenge of me. I took that class last year and loved it -- I still have 2 pages I need to finish up, maybe I can get them done in Feb. LOAD. Look forward to seeing more of your work. PS I recognize that Adornit paper - too cute!

Nothing to say but FABULOUS! You never fail to inspire me. Truly. Hugs to everyone!

It is so neat to see so many great moments "archived"! My generation is reassured that those "old" photos and "passing thoughts" will live on. Meanwhile, I simply enjoy what you are sharing with your mom, Margaret. N'oublie pas que je t'adore!

Thank you, S! It was a wonderful class. I wouldn't have made those pages without the challenge. I love that Adornit paper, too. And... I love your studio/library!

Thank you, Mandi! You are too nice to me.

Thanks, Mommy! I love you, and I will not EVER forget that you love me, too. I'm a lucky girl.

Wow, great job on the class! I also took the class but got too busy so I procrastinated. I really like the quote on the last page..being an Army wife myself I feel that sentiment exactly.

Wow...that is beautiful, M! I'm so inspired and yet all my "tools" are waiting for me in Oklahoma (where I will hopefully be going soon and I can think of no better way to while away my days!)

Everyone, thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my stuff. Your comments are so kind!

Lisa -- I am such a scrapping nerd, that it literally MADE MY DAY that you stopped by. Your class was such a treat for me; I hope you'll offer more workshops at BPS. I'm in!
