Hi my scrappy friends -  It is time for the May Pick Your Side Sketch Challenge from the 
Scrap Our Stash Blog -
 Below are your sketch prompts, 
and also be sure to include a TAG in your layout too!

I used the Sketch on the LEFT as my inspiration - my Tag is tucked behind the top of the photo on the left - and the pineapple is how you pull it out of the little pocket I made with 3D Foam Tape - I love to include journaling on my layouts on little hidden Tags!  I LOVE the clouds i the photos from our Disney Magic Cruise and can't believe this was over a year ago!  There are 3 "not so hidden Mickeys"  - Can you find them?? I hope you like it!

October 15, 2017 - Our son Nick and his partner Rob got engaged on one of the sea days on our Disney Cruise - It was a beautiful day and we are so happy for them. 
Love them and their Happy Smiles!

Challenge YOUrself #65 - Life Goals!

Hello my scrappy friends - It is time for the 
We are asking you to create a layout about your goals in life - and to be sure to include YOU in your layout!

This one really hits home for me this month. At the end of June, the company that I have worked for, for the last 39 years, will be moving from New Jersey to Florida.  While I was offered a position to join them, I am unable to do so.  My family comes first, and all of them are in New Jersey.  I have no connections in Florida ( other than Disney World!) 
- and I feel my home is and will always be New Jersey!

So I find myself in an unexpected and life changing situation, and have begun the challenge of finding a new job - after 39 years!  
So with that in mind - my LIFE GOALS at this time are:
Worry Less!
Enjoy More!
Choose Happy!

As my title says - "DONUT worry - BE HAPPY!"

I thought this donut paper was SO FUN and just perfect for photos of my hubby and I at a donut shop we found, while on a get-a-way weekend in January of 2017.

Maybe if I keep repeating this, it will sink in!

Thanks for stopping by!  
I hope I've inspired you to join us this month at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!

May SOS Saturday Cartoon Sketch Challenge - Rainbow Bright - "Candytopia"

May is here already!!  That means it is time for a FUN challenge 
from the Scrap Our Stash Blog!

Here is my Layout for your inspiration - I had so much fun playing along with the rainbow theme, and making that big rainbow circle using lots of brads and embellishments that I have had in my stash forever!! I think the fun colors work great with the photo of my friends and I covered in confetti while visiting the FUN Candytopia Pop-Up in NYC last year!

This brad/embellishment circle was SO MUCH FUN to create!

Here are some close-ups for you:

I hope I've inspired you to play along with this very Colorful Challenge!  Start digging through and using up some of your stash, and show us what you come up with!  Looking forward to seeing your layout on the Scrap Our Stash May Cartoon Challenge!
