31 days to a better blog. I'm intrigued. I fully admit up front I might quite this midway or even after 3 days. However, I don't want to do it without some others.
Will you join and we can do it together?

A favorite quote of mine:
"One of the most difficult things everyone has to learn is that for your entire life you must keep fighting and adjusting if you hope to survive. No matter who you are or what your position, you must keep fighting for whatever it is you desire to achieve. If someone is not aware of this contest and expects otherwise, then constant disappointment accrues. People who fail sometimes do not realize that the simple answer to everyday fears is to keep fighting. Health, happiness, and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person. The big thing is not what happens to us in life, but what we do about what happens to us."
-Geore H. Allen, Former Charman of the Presiden'ts council on Physical Fitness

Here is something to consider.

Happy Friday! Thank you everyone who has checked out my projects and left me some love. It has been great! I have a scrapbook page that I worked on all week this week. It started with just an idea in my head and I slowly put it on to the paper.
I used the burnish velvet technique with the cuttlebug and glitter. And I used 5 Unity stamps all from different sets!

This page I made as a RAK (random acts of kindness) in our Unity RAK group. This particular lady is pregnant with her second boy!! Her due date is the same day as her first boy just two years later! And she only happens to be less than 2 hours away from me, but I have yet to meet her. It is Ashley or HeartHugsDesign.
The stamp set was just released in February and it is called Journal Baby's Journey. It is super cute! I loved the scrapbook page Chelsea Cook (Unity DT) did for Hip Hop on 2-19, click here to see. I used the idea of the top page that is distressed to show the paper below it.
I really like this mama stamp. I used Koh-i-noor pencils to color it purple.

I put a magnet on the back of the images and one on the clothes pin, so I can switch out the images to suit my mood.
