A New Year, A New Beginning

I have been in limbo for the last couple months. I have had three people who I love and adored pass away just weeks apart. I have also been trying to help my Mom get her health back on track after her heart attack and stroke. I was just so sad and feeling sorry for my self. In turn, I neglected my blog and all my wonderful online friends who truly have become my lifeline.

I am in the process of updating my blog. Time to jazz it up a little. I will have some new challenges up and running, starting this week.

I have a great prize up for grabs too. I will post the details on this tomorrow.

I am BACK to Play with everyone. I hope to continue to inspire you to create wonderful scrapbook pages and cards.

I have taken the last two months to reflect on my life and what it means to me. having to deal with the death of a loved one is never easy, especially when they are so close together. I have made my mantra this year..... LIVE LIFE!! I am not going to sit back and feel sorry for myself anymore. I am going to live my life, play hard and laugh every day, even if it's just at myself.

Here is a layout I did with my new mantra. I used a wonderful sketch designed by Kristine Davidson for Let's Capture Our Memories Sketch Blog and I used the latest kit available from weScrap. These are two amazing sites that I continue to check into each and every day.

Challenge #1: What was your mantra for the year?? Share it below for a chance to win a Kaiser Krafts Goodie prize pack!! If you have made a layout using your Mantra, please email it to me at thynner5@yahoo.ca or link it below for an extra chance to win!!

Due Date: January 31st
Draw Date: February 1st

Happy Scrapping!
