Life got in the way!

I told you last time that I was wanting to enter the OSD The Art Journal Challenge.  I did get the page done (mostly) and then didn’t have time to post it.  That’s the pits!  I am going to post it here anyway but I feel it still needs something added to it.  I haven’t been able to find that little something that it needs.  I will add to it someday when that little something jumps out at me.  Perhaps you might have an idea for me?

Challenge #1 that  I didn't enter!

The winners of Challenge #1 are here.  So challenge #2 I will give it another go.  This link will take you directly to this weeks challenge.  “Challenge #2”  This weeks challenge is due by 2/9/13, I’m very happy to give it another try.

Have a nice Sunday in your home as I plan to do today.  Even if it is helping my sweetheart of a son with his homework.  You take what you can get when they start getting too busy for family time.  🙂

40 Days of Scrapping Purpose Journal Posts

Hi there it has been a long while and the holidays are all over.  I haven’t been feeling very well so time has flown by as well I have gotten nearly nothing done in the mean time.

First off we are getting towards the end of the month when Mye Deleon’s new baby Alphonse is needing our help.  He was born with a hole in his heart, and is scheduled to have surgery in February.  They need help raising money for the surgery for the new little angel.  I will just add a couple of links here so you can see for yourself.

An Innocent Heart at Digital Scrapbooking Studio  Coordinating products also available at the following sites: A Cherry on Top, Artisan Scrap Designers, Hunnybee Design, Romajo’s Scrap Shop, Scrap Art Studio, Scrap Takeout  and Pixels and Company.  Direct donations are also gratefully accepted.  There are nine days left and a lot to go yet.  Here is the where things stand.  GOAL  and here is Mye Deleon website  if you wish to learn more about little Alphonse.

I have looked at the OSD (One Story Down) “The Loft Journal Challenge” over there for the next few weeks.  I am unsure of how long this one lasts.   But it looks like a lot of fun and what is life about anyway.  FUN……  Right?

ODS Loft Challenge #1

ODS Loft Challenge #1

And last I decided to post the “Divine Digital 40 Days of Scrapping Purpose” journal pages here since it seems like you have to register before you are able to see them in the gallery.   If you are going to do some of these yourself there are still fifteen more days will be released.  You can start anywhere in the process really and they should all be available to buy in the boutique eventually, I haven’t seen the first 23 in there but I may have overlooked them.   But really all you need are the instructions posted with the download to take part and the link here will take you to those daily prompts.  From here on out I will post my pages as I get them done.  They have been a lot of fun to do.  Oh and I thought I would share with you that I got “Layout of the Day” on day 21 which I have centered below and states “My Journey”.   I was so happy to be recognized for “Layout of the Day!” This page took a long time and was a very special posting.

”40 Days of SCRAPPING Purpose” by Royanna Fritschmann

Hi there, the new challenge is here, and well worth the wait I am sure!  The “40 Days of Scrapping Purpose” begins today!  Each day for 40 days a Quote of the day, a challenge and a free mini kit is given to use.  The mini kit is only available for 24 hours each time.  After ever 10 pages that get posted, you earn a free exclusive kit and coupons for Royanna’s Boutique.  What a treat.  I am starting right away.  I will post my layout each day for the next 40 as long as I can keep up that is.  I am a novice at this in some respects.  It isn’t always easy to get to this each day.  Here is scoop.

Journal Junque Kit and Event Announcement

Trunk Junk

“Trunk Junk” by Studio RA Designs

Happy Monday, I am writing today about a new kit that I really like.  The kit is “Trunk Junk” and is an inspiring art journal kit to bring your pages to LIFE!  Created by Royanna Fritschmann with Studio RA Designs.  This kit was given to each of us for participating in the Journal Junque Event that took place from the 16-30th or so.  Purchased the new kit here it is on sale now.  Isn’t it beautiful?  I really think it will be a fun kit to use.  It is a huge full kit with 16 separate files to download but really worth the effort if you like this type of style.   She has also provided all 30 days of word art that we used for the Journal Junque Challenge.  You can find the Word Art  in her boutique if you want them for you own journal art.

Next! I have some information on the new launch of “40 Days of Scrapping Purpose”  It is an inspirational series also on why we scrap and the purpose of us leaving a legacy behind.  This has also been designed by Royanna Fritschmann.  This will begin on September 15th, 2012.  Watch here for further information Forum at Divine Digital.  Otherwise check back here and I will try to keep everyone updated.  I am looking forward to this event very much!  I think it will be a challenge just keeping up on 40 days of something alone.  If you know what I mean.:)

My first submission

This post is a bit late but I still wanted to post my journal pages that I submitted to Divine Digital’s Journal Junque event that took place last week.  There are a lot of really great pages posted at Divine Digital’s Journal Junque Gallery.  However my pages didn’t get posted within the Journal Junque Gallery so my pages are found here.  There are seven pages in all so if you move to the left from where the link lands you will see all of my pages there.  This was so much fun and really was a timely class for me!  A big thanks to Royanna Fritschmann/Studio RA Designs the most wonderful designer and founder of one of my favorite places to play Divine Digital.  She is planning to have another event similar to this one in mid September so if you are at all  interested check back in later.  I will post the information when I hear about it.

I hope you had a great Labor Day holiday weekend, unfortunately our summer is over and we get to go back to the life of going to bed early, going to school, and lots of homework!
