Friday Challenge #1

I've decided that I need to be challenged more in my scrapbooking. So on Fridays I will be posting a challenge, specific challenges, and I would love for you to play! The first challenge is:

Write a Letter To Someone You Love

This can be to a child, to your husband, to a relative that has passed, a friend that has hurt you...the intent is not to give the person the letter, but more for it to be thereaputic to you, and getting down the story. This was an emotional challenge for me as I tend to scrap "rainbows & sunshine" so to speak LOL! And though my love for my father is unconditional, I felt compelled to write a letter to him as I stared at this picture. Most my questions will never be answered but it was still something I HAD to scrap about. Sometimes I forget that scrapping has to do with telling a story, whether good or bad, and it felt SO GOOD to do this. So I encourage you to give it a try....stretch yourself! And who doesn't need a challenge??!

If you participate I would LOVE to see your work. Please post a link to your layout here on my blog (if you wish to share) I know some of you will want to keep the journaling private which is totally fine! You could even use an envelope somewhere on your page and tuck the letter away.

On a different note, I wanted to share a "sneak peek" of the new line "Office Lingo" from{Pink Paislee} slated to be released at CHA winter 2008!!! Rebecca and Holly have been working so hard and I am anxious to see the full reveal. I know they will be a HUGE success!!!

I am recovering quite well from my surgery. It was a bumpy first couple of days but things are starting to return to normal {except for the lifting bit}. Thanks to all you prayed and sent me well wishings.
