Everything Scrapp'n Challenge Day

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Ours was going to be quiet already due to my injuries (it sure stinks not being able to bend down without pain & use my left arm) but then Christmas Eve morning  Andrew came down with the flu.  I felt so bad for him yet at the same time we were all trying to stear clear of the germs.   Brandon & I went to my parents for a great dinner while Charley stayed home with Andrew to keep his spirits up.  I know he was feeling bad when he wouldn't even eat Turkey dinner (his favorite)!  He's still sniffing & caughing up a lung but slowly getting better.

Well this will not by your typical Everything Scrapp'n blog hop.  Michelle has also been sick with the flu so she will have her work up on the ES Blog later in the week.  It might be nice to stop by her blog & send her some get well love. 

The weeks after Thanksgiving are so busy that it's a relief when "the day" finally comes.  As New Years approaches I start thinking of all that happend in the past 12 months.  Even the TV news shows turn to reflecting on the past year's events.

So I thought it was a perfect time for a Journaling Challenge.... Reflections or Resolutions - I challenge you to do a layout about yourself.  Either about what was in 2009 or what you hope for 2010.  Each of the ES design team has created their take on this challenge.  Join in & post yours on the Everything Scrapp'n Blog by midnight Jan 9th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store.

Here's my take on the challenge - I know I gave you a sneak peak a couple weeks ago during my blog anniversary - hoping some of the Unity fans would play along....

"2009-My Everyday Life Memories"

I "aged" the ribbon with gold Glimmer Mist

Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill); Paper (Graphic 45 - Domestic Goddess); Rub On Letters (American Crafts & Heidi Swapp); Sticker Letters (Making Memories); Bling (Prima - Say it in Pearls Strip); Ribbon (Maya Road-Black Gingham & Maya Road - Beige Gingham); Ticket (Tim Holtz); Tag (K&Co & 7Gypsies); Pin (Vintage stash); Chipboard & Image Rub On (Maya Road); Spray Paint - to age the ribbon (Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mist); Stamps (Journaling Spot & Letters - Unity Stamp Co)

I love ribbon & trim - this one by Maya Road is so versitile

For my other project I was feeling sentimental & wanted to do a layout about my hubby.....  The Pink Paislee - Fetching line is perfect for the guys in your life.

Hey Girl! I LOVE how you aged the ribbon with Glimmer Mist. That is much better than my watered-down-Distress-ink trial (what a mess!) I'll have to try with Glimmer Mist next time! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, now that's a lot of great journaling! I hope I can come up with a lot for this challenge. I'm going to try starting this tonight. Thanks for the get well love! I love how work those cute little circle alphas.
