Wow...Thank You!!!!

Today has been kind of rough...had to have another injection in my spine. Believe me when I say it is really not that bad and I am quite used to the procedure but it still leaves some discomfort afterwards. It is something I have accepted as part of my life and as they goes on.

I have really been having "Fall Fever". I am so ready for cooler weather. Now when I say cooler weather, it means something very different in the south. Growing up in Louisiana, I know to expect a mild winter and hot hot summers but since moving to Texas, "Hot" took on a whole new hotter than hades or so hot that a chicken laid a fried egg!!!!! Oh well, my point is I am anxious for jacket weather and sweaters. I love homemade stew on a cold day watching football. With all that said, I tend to scrap what is on my mind at the time. Here is a layout for Halloween. Basic Grey had an awesome line last year that I was still itching to use. The design comes from a sketch I found on Creative Scrappers sketch site.

Look at this...I was completely humbled by this very sweet award from a fellow blogger. I was told I had to answer 2 questions after receiving it so here goes...

What was my favorite project to work on?

I would say a mini purse album by BoBunny for my local scrap store. I was working there at the time and was asked to create something for a future class. Altered projects are not usually my niche but when I saw the finished product I have to say I was really pleased. Now every time I walk in the store and see that mini album on display I am so proud that I attempted and conquered something out of my comfort zone.
Why do I enjoy crafting?
I enjoy crafting/scrapbooking because it relaxes me. It is the most therapeutic hobby I have ever had. It never occurred to me that I had a "crafty" artistic side to me....I was completely focused on acquiring a medical career. But when things happened with my back, scrapbooking became such an outlet for all my emotions and love for my family and friends. Now I can't imagine life without paper and glue!!!
I am supposed to pass this on to 3 people who inspire me....
Can't wait to spread the love!!!!
