Scraps for the Week.

This past week, some cool news has come my way.

Crop for the Cure contacted me about becoming a sponsor for their event, and I totally agreed. I was totally humbled that they loved my items in the ROL Shop.

Moreover, I am going to be published again! This time Ready, Set, Create contacted me and loved one of my recent projects. I am totally thrilled about this!

I feel so accomplished; I’ve also finished a handful of layouts this week. I plan on scrapping more the rest of this week.

I’ve always thought that Scrapping the Music had some really neat challenges, so I decided to join in on the fun. The challenge requires you to complete a layout using their current song as inspiration. Here is my take on this challenge:

The current challenge at The Story Matters caught my eye. It’s about scrapping a struggle you may have; I scrapped about my struggles with GAD.

The journaling on this layout says, “Living with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) has made it hard for me to smile and enjoy the everyday moments in life. It has become a constant struggle I face. To overcome my anxiety, I plan to take simple steps. 1) therapists 2) support groups 3) family 4) friends 5) relaxing/breathing. Although it may take a while, I won’t give up beacuse I really do want to smile again.”

Another layout I finished was inspired by Sketches! {by tamara} and Scrapping Out Loud. I used Recipe #35 as a guideline and the “word of the week” to make this layout about my cousin:

Check back tomorrow for possibly another Valentine’s Day RAK.
