Be Happy & Enjoy The Journey

First off, a big thank you and salute to all of our veterans on this Veteran's Day 2012!  

Second, I have two big boxes of paper and all kinds of scrapbooking goodies to give away here.  If you're interested, just leave a comment and I'll randomly draw two winners this Friday, November 16th!  Almost everything in the boxes are from past Studio Calico kits, just so ya know ;)

And last, but not least, I have a layout to share with you today.  It's my take on this week's Sunday Sketch...

I finally got to break out my November SC kit and I'm loving it!  I stuck fairly close to the sketch, but I had to add a bit more to the right side :)

This layout is sort of a thankful for/look how far you've come take on my life right now.  I turned 30 gasp this past August and I feel like I have accomplished so much in the past few years....heck, just in the past year!  Some things I've accomplished are very small, some things I've accomplished are very personal, and some things I've accomplished are very private, but that's why I love scrapbooking.  Sometimes I can express myself and my feelings better through paper and pretties than through words and expressions.

I am happy and enjoying the journey.  More now than ever before in my entire life.  

I'm very thankful I get to "live the dream"...my dream that is and no one else's...and I hope you are doing the same :)

I hope you have a wonderful evening and thanks for looking!
