Good Morning Everyone! It is a typical lazy, rainy, Sunday morning. I slept till 7 a.m and crawled out of bed to enjoy a cup of java and read e-mail. I am planning on scrapbooking for a while this morning and have a second cup of coffee. This leisure morning is rare for me lately. And I am going to enjoy every minute of it. Got the okay for the scrapbook event for charity. Every spare moment has been used to try and plan the crop in July. Alot of fun stuff will happen. This layout is a challenge page. A dear friend gave me this office type forms and ask if I could do something with it. What do you think? Got back 5 rolls of film yesterday, so I am chomping at the bit to get started. Enjoy your rainy day.

Challenge #4......This is a deep one girls.
There was a movie ( don't ask me why I am thinking about it) in the 80's , I think .
Named "Trip to Bountiful" starring Geraldine Page. A lovely movie of a dying woman wanting to go home, to a community named Bountiful, for one last time. Her trip brought back memories of a childhood, as a teen and young women. The good with the bad. As she found the dilapidated house , she was at peace. She was home. So where is your " BOUNTIFUL". Tell a story of where or when you feel at peace. And if you have not seen this movie, grab the tissues and curl up on the sofa for a good sweet movie.

Read this on A blog, just wanted to pass it along.
Leo Buscaglia : The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.

Second Challenge- Oh this one was easy for me. And I think I like it more than the first. You don't always have to use a picture. I wanted to get my point across so I journaled. I needed a splash of color so, the ribbon to remind me of something I know I what was that????????

My first challange- Ladies, How did you do? I love Coffee ice cream! At this time, I may say, because I just love ice cream. And I think the reason I like this kind so much is that no one else does and so it is all mine. I don't have to share.

O.K Ladies, Let's try something different. I want to challenge you to create a scrapbook page. Not just any page but a special one about your favorites. This weekend, let's create a page about your favorite ice cream. Do you have a favorite or do you love them all. With summer approaching faster and faster, we will be pulling out the ice cream freezer and/ or buying more ice cream. Although we eat more ice cream in the winter and then cover up with a blanket, freezing to death. Go figure. My favorite has changed in the last few years and I need to scrapbook this. So this is your challenge. My favorite ice cream flavor is.........

Have a good safe weekend everyone!!

Exhaustion set in today and I was in my gown until 2 p.m. The last few weeks have been packed with commitments. I woke up at 6 a.m but went back to sleep. And it seems I am sooo busy I can not go away with my husband for a weekend , until June. We thought we had a free week end but as it turned out, Easter Sunday. Back to work tomorrow * Just wanted to let you know I am still alive and kicking, just not blogging.
