Give Yourself a Present!

I love Stacy J. and she inspires me to do better as a scrapper. I love her books and blog! So..... I decided to join in on her new challenge going on. Luv the idea and what it means. I must be honest and say I have not done anything creative in a long while and most of all meaningful to me or my family and friends. And lately, that is what I crave, look for and hope for. I have been really thinking about the things that I should or shouldn't do as a scrapper, asking myself why I create things and the purpose behind them. In short, I want to create things that have meaning and will be treasured and love even when I am long gone.

I know, I dramatic! But seriously, I have really been thinking about this and this is the direction I want to take from now on. Will it be hard, yes! I'm pretty sure breaking any bad habits will. Taking the necessary time to create meaningful projects...that's hard..check! Finishing anything I start....hard.. check!

So this might be just what I needed. So I will be picking my 10 pictures that represent me "NOW", will post them here (having a hard time downloading pics right now) and then off to make my mini. Will post my mini when I am done. Hope you all decide to check it out and look at the challenge and see if this is something you want to do!

Here is it:
You have everything you need right now to be vibrant, happy and fully engaged in the creative process of life. Sometimes you just have to slow down, look around and realize it! Here’s what I want you to do …
• Snap ten or twelve photos of your life right now. Or find recent photos that you've already taken.
• Compile these photos in one of these super-cute Bazzill Mono-Mini albums (keep reading)
• Keep or carry this album with you, tucked in your purse or desk drawer for one full year.
• Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it out.
• On October 1st, 2009, create a scrapbook page about your experience.

Oh, on a side note I also want to do Ali's A Week in the Life...! Yea, I know there's so much I want to do. But that's how I am, I need idea's, list of things to do. Otherwise, I'll go crazy. LOL!

Rick brought home my scrapbag so I am going to do the challenge you posted. I just need to choose some pics. I'll probably start it this weekend. It won't be as fun as being there with you to do it but it'll be cool to see what we came up with. I miss you Michelle! P.S- The training is going well but my feet ache every night! Talk to you this weekend.
