I was thinking of a title for this LO.  Then as I was writing this post it dawned on me that my journaling is about her fearless ways and how she will ride anything. 
So I will add that to the page. 
This is a Sketch from Memory Nest.

Inspire me.

I have not done challenges in a very long time.  I found these along my trails of blog hopping and decided it's time to challenge myself just a little more.
The Memory Nest ,  Challenge YourSelf, Scrap our Stash and My Scraps and More  are having a month long October Fest Challenge check them out.  Still working on the Senior Year book.  As my daughter puts it "Mom you take way too many pictures and you Print way too many of them"  I know but It's what keeps me out of your hair so don't knock it. Plus one day you will thank me.

Challenges are: 
The memory Nest -  This Sketch
Challenge Yourself - Have a picture of yourself - that be me in the black and white smack in the center of the LO! 
Scrap your stash - two different washi tape - The film strip and cameras are washi tapes.
My Scraps and More- Color Challenge.

Thank you for Stopping by.

I decided to start participating on some challenges.  I have been in hiatus long enough.  This one is for The Memory Nest Fall Frenzy Challenge.

This was a fun sketch, I never thought I would be able to fit all four photos on an 8 1/2 X 11 Page but I did.

I'm almost done with this album and is one of my favorite.  This little woman is amazing.  She is pursuing a career in Criminal Justice, in the way of the Naval Academy in 2 years and Quantico.  I wish her the very best.

Here are a few I did this week.  
Playing with washi tape.

Yellow and Red my favorite color combination.
When I was in middle school my Geography teacher wore a yellow dress with a red belt and I believe it had something red around the neck.  I remember that dress and how much I liked it.  Since that day I have always wanted a dress like that and I've never had one. But when I scrap I use this combination quite often.

Playing around with different textures and colors.

Travel Journal

Stan and I are leaving on our first vacation alone in 12 years.  It's going to be interesting to say the least, we are all about our kids but this is what God had in mind for us and we both need the time together and a break from our hectic lives.
I decided that I wanted to do a Mini book for our vacation (since I'm still working on last years cruise) and then I decided that I wanted to take it with me and journal everyday, that way all that is left to do is put the pictures in and the book is done, easy peasy japanese.  Here is what I came up with.

Leaving this Saturday, I can't wait to start journaling.
