life is challenging

But that us what it is all about and this is a new week and a new day! My children are better, thanks for all of the well wishes. I am in better spirits as well, yeah!!

Advisory, long post, newest daily cards:

Scrapjacked is awesome, Sally picked Dina who is one of my absolute favorite scrappers! I love her artistic flair and she just rocks paint, spray inks and paper to the fullest!! This is my spend on her layout!! So FUN!!!
Scrapdragons layout:
use pink (in remembrance of Breast Cancer), paint and the word art on your layout. I love nature! I took this picture one morning as the sun was coming up.

I finally had a chance to dive into my kc kit! I have been drooling over this woodgrain postcard for months, so when I saw it in the kit I was estactic!! I knew it would be perfect as a minibook. I glued all of the papers together just like a book and added some gaffer tape to cover the spine. Karla and I had gotten this email from photojojo explaining the technique. After i saw how awesome Karla's book turned out I knew I had to use that binding technique as well. I will have more pics of it this week.
