OUAS and Challenge YOUrself page.

I have been working away at a few pages. The one i want to share today actually was created with two challenge sites in mind. The first is a blog i have only just discovered. A lovely blog to get us all scrapping about ourselves, Challenge YOUrself.  It is their second only challenge and it is a good one. You are to choose "One Little Word". It is a word that you will focus on and reflect upon all through the year and we are to create a layout that celebrates our chosen word. My word i chose is "healthy".
 
While thinking about this word i saw that Once Upon A.....Sketch this month is encouraging us to journal about a lesson learnt. With my word "healthy" i began thinking about my journey to be so and the lessons i have learnt along the way. Of course OUAS also requires the use of a sketch which i interpreted to suit my needs.
 


So that is it from me tonight. I hope to share some more pages this weekend with you, until then take care xx

Such a beautiful calm page Billie-Jean and I love your honest journaling (such pretty handwriting too!) The touch of colour in the little flowers and gold frame is charming. Thanks for sharing your OLW with us at Challenge Yourself. xx

Billie-Jean... this is a stunning layout and knockout journalling. You are so right I think as mothers most of us do that for our families and we are the ones that suffer. I am so sorry that you took such a hit though. I am glad that you are now taking care of yourself. One step at a time and This layout is my fave I love it. Way to go... Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month...

Wow Billie-Jean, what a fabulous page and amazing lesson learnt!! I wish you all the best in your new healthy life style. It is so easy to get caught up in the needs of our family and not take care of ourselves the way we should, but what a great example when we do. I love the way you cropped your photo and fab page elements!! Thanks for joining us for the January Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge! I hope you’ll stop by our Once Upon A…Sketch Facebook Page to share your layout there for a chance to win our Facebook prize. ~ Blessings, Tracey

What an awesome page! I can so relate to everything you wrote. After caring for both my parents while the had cancer I let myself go in the process and am now picking up the pieces. Your page inspires me to makes some changes of my own. I love your eye for detail and you honest journaling! All the best! http://mybeaner.blogspot.ca/ Drop by and visit sometime! :)
