The Voting Has Started and another Project to Share...

The three-days of voting has started over at the "Scrap The Boys" challenge blog; and my "Real Men Live, Laugh and Love" layout is in the running. Actually all the layouts that were turned in are in the running, which is kind of cool cuz we all have a chance. I love that. In any case, I'd love it if you feel like checking out the layouts (click here), and vote for the one you like the best! If it just happens to be mine then yeayyyy! But seriously, no pressure. :0)

I'm still playing in my ABC art journal and I'm almost caught up! Yeayyy! I finished my "M" page today, and the group is only on N. Wait... I guess that means I'm COMPLETELY caught up now! Double yeayyyyy!!!

Anyhoo, the prompt for the letter "M" was left open to choice, so I chose Magic and Miracles...
It reads "Both magic and miracles need only for you to believe for them to happen." ~Harry Quadracci.

I used acrylic paint, gesso, vintage sheet music, a magazine image, Jenni Bowlin patterned paper, brown oil crayon, and Stampin Up alpha stamps. Oh, and the small words were typed on my new (old) typewriter! So fun!

Next on my list is the letter "N" journal page, and I also want to put together a travel journal kit. I've been wanting to do that for some time, and then Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's post on the subject really inspired me. Check it out here for lots of good ideas!

I'm off to look for the perfect container for my travel kit - see you tomorrow for another update! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments - they mean alot to me!
