This is a page I did about Annde's new school. I wandered around taking some pictures and this is where I used them. It was fun to do this page because I not only got to use 16 pictures but I combined a Scrapbook Doodle challenge that I posted for their Friday night crop (use 10 pictures on a page for the 10th month) with the Challenge for CC for the use of this Scenic Route patterned paper. Here's one of the bonus doorprizes: Create a card from one of the challenges... I chose the one using 4 patterned papers and created this card to say Thanks! I love how it opens in a non-traditional way...These are 2 pages I did for my journal using the Challenges. Hey, why not??!? The first one is about my favorite Scrapbook manufacturers (I had to use numbers 1-9 on a page). The journaling reads: "My life is my message, carefully recorded, page by page between the covers of albums. My life is my message, and these manufacturers are the ones I tend to grab out of my bag first when I have something to say or memorialize. My life is my message, and while my message isn’t limited to these 10 companies, they show up over and over again in what I make." and the second one is about why I blog (I had to use 6 fonts in the title). The journaling on this page reads: "I was once recently asked by someone why I blog. “Why waste the time and effort? Does anyone actually read what you write?” Maybe only 1 or 2 people might read it but to me, those people actually want to know what I am doing, how life is going, what my scrapbook pages look like. Those people matter to me. Blogging can make life easier: It’s easier to say, “Check the blog” than it is to write a letter. It’s easier to post pictures and pages than send a copy to everyone. But, it’s more than that to me... So, why do I blog? I blog because I can and I really enjoy it. I blog because someone once told me that my blog was: “Very humorous and a real peek into your life. It's the best blog I've ever read. Just wanted to say keep up the good work.” She’s a wonderful woman and it meant a lot to me because she only knows me through one of my boards. I blog because I know some of my family members and friends like to read what I write or see what I am doing. Maybe the question should be: Why don’t you blog?"
As for other fun news, I was picked as the November Guest Designer for ScrapDango! FABULOUS!! I got a sneak peak at what's in my kit and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I also won bingo at CC this month and won a fun prize too! You can see it used in 2 of the pages & the card above (Cider Mill and Summer Fun)
Tomorrow is my first workshop for Susan's 3 day and I am happy to say that I have sold 5 out of 6 spots! Only one to go - if you are interested, let me know!! The reveal of project 2 will be on Wednesday or Thursday and is a fun way to do a picture Christmas card! I can't wait to show you!
Well, that's all for now... I am going home to ice my leg, or rather ice my drink to make me forget my leg!! AHAHAHAHA
