Back to Blogging

Well here I am back to a Monday blog posting! So excited to start this part of my journey back up again. Big changes will be happening in my life in the next month, and one of them is to start this blog back going! I don't know what I'll post, and I'm not worried about it. I might ramble, share some art, but I will post, so stay tuned!
I had the opportunity to go back to my roots of scrapbooking and spend the day with my friends just making layouts. It was so much fun and rewarding! I got a whooping 6 layouts done and I am pretty proud of most of them. Here are a few. It was really fun to pick up a line that really wasn't my "normal" vintagy style like Amy Tangerine and make my favorite layout of the day which was "squeeze". It worked perfectly with my photo and the paper and embellishments were DARLING! Everyone was making layouts with this line. I am hooked! I'll be taking a class with Amy Tan next Friday night at Scrapbook Oasis in Irvine. I am so excited.
I can't thank everyone enough for all their thoughts, comments, and prayers this past week. I felt every single one of them and so did Bianca. We leave on Thursday to head to college and I am scared, excited and proud of her. When I come back, I am going to be making some announcements, and taking a new journey in this thing called "Life".. I hope you'll join me!
