Challenge #129 -- Journaling Challenge

I am now back from vacation but am gearing up to leave again next week. We are going with friends to the Eifle here in Germany. It is a very pretty part of Germany. I will actually have the opportunity to stand in three different countries at one time while I am there. I am excited for this picture opportunity. I plan on using one foot in one country, another foot in another country and a hand in the third country. I also have plans to have all 5 of my kids standing in the three different countries for a picture. I am so excited to take these pictures and scrap them.

Also on another note. I am starting to have computer problems again. It looks like a new lap top is in my future. I will go lap top shopping while I am in America in September. But if I go missing between now and then, you all know why.

This week is our Journaling Challenge. It comes from Julia, one of the Design Team Members here at Sketches! {by tamara}.

Guest Designer: Maureen Esquillo-Kao

My name is Maureen, or Mo for short. I'm a wife, a mom of 2, a Registered Nurse, the eldest of 3 girls, and a daughter to two amazing parents! It all started with the love of writing as a child which in turn lead to a translation of what was in my head to art you can touch, feel and interpret as your own. My love for writing has helped me as a blogger, sharing my stories and art in an entertaining way. I also love creating things with my hands and I especially love scrapbooking. I feel life is a feast for the senses and live my life by really living in the moment, paying attention to the sight, sound, touch, taste and translate that to emotion. Scrapping is my therapy and ever since I started, the artist in me has fully awakened. Scapbooking and the blogging world has enriched my life AND helped me expand my talents! I can't believe how much I have learned from other scrappers. I also enjoy making cards, creating jewelry, and stamping on my projects.
