Emily Challenge...

I am doing Em's Art Journal Challenge (EAJC) and here are the first few weeks results:

First week was Something you are proud of...
Second week was What is Powerful to you...
And this week is I AM... (I am grateful).
Em created a groovy little bag to put her cards into. Mine didnt work out so well... but this here box did, so I have a 2007 Card Box to go with the cards I make each week:
This week I got all 52 cards painted on one side (the side I write on)... the other side is the visual side of the challenge, the photos, patterned papers, calendar, stickers etc.

So now they are all in the box and ready to go.... JOY! Ahhhh its these little things in life that make me so happy *grin*
KIWI Scraps is bringing her to Oz in April .... whooohooooo. Tickets go on sale 1 Feb. I cant wait!

So much fun to be had!
