Welcome to the August Journaling Challenge!!!

This is going to be an exciting month for me!
Some of you may know that when I'm not on the computer designing, I'm teaching Zumba classes.
Well next week I'm headed to Orlando for the 2012 Zumba Instructors Convention and I am beyond excited!!!
I can't even imagine what it's going to be like amidst a sea of 7500 fellow instructors all dressed like the inside of a Skittles bag!

So....with that in mind.....think back to an event you were excited about....a vacation, wedding, party....something you were planning for, and tell about it using my Inspire Me Template 2 from my store as your guide!
(just click on the image to download)

Here is mine!!

To be honest, getting to do anything out of the ordinary makes me excited!!! Doesn't take much to amuse me!!! But one thing that really gets me excited is seeing my husband with the kids. He is such a great dad, but he has missed out on so much with the 9 deployments he has been on during his career in the Army. He is so enjoying our son because out of four kids and one granddaughter, he is the only one that he has been around every day of his life. The others he has missed months to a year at a time.

So here is my layout!

I did another layout for my book on our China trip. Looks like this one could be the introductory page.

I posted about this on my blog: Beautiful Bright Eyes (http://beautifulbrighteyes.blogspot.com/2012/08/another-month-and-more-challenges-to.html)

ETA: OOopss... Forgot to turn the floral elements back on. Had turned them off when working with placement of the photos. Didn't notice it until I came back in here this afternoon. That's what happens when you do things in a hurry.

Hi everyone,

Right now, with my baby girl heading off to College, I have to journal about that. It is weighing on my heart. I used one of your great kits from your personal store, Fresh.

Beautiful pages ladies. Here in my first digital scrapbook pages in years. It was challenging to remember how to build a page, but well worth it as well as lots of fun.
