I am slowly recooperating from having bronchitis, laryngitis, and inner ear infection that caused my imbalance and dizziness. I still managed to finish a layout I created for the following challenges: Flying Unicorn American Idol, Swirlydoos Seed packet, and Once Upon a Sketch 2/15 Sketch Challenge. I knew I only had energy to create a little at a time so I made sure something for each challenge was represent into this layout.

Here is my layout of a scenery from our favorite past trip.. a trip to Cancun. For the American Idol challenge, we were required to have things in quantity of 2, 3, 4. I had added 2 ribbons, 3 dusty attic chipboard shells, and 4 butterflies. I used the OUAS 2/15 sketch for inspiration and journaling. I also included a photo transfer of one of the seed packets for the challenge at Swirlydoos.

I was very interested in the journaling requirement for OUAS. I have been lacking in the journalling part of my layouts and I am trying to put more of my own words and handwriting so my children and family would know why that particular photo or event meant to me. For OUAS, we had to journal about a vacation/holiday. I feel my husband and I are in need of a vacation. Having young babies put a halt to our traveling and I am always wishing we could take one tomorrow.

Our dream vacation is going to Hawaii.. but at this moment I truly feel the words I placed on the layout. My journaling reads: 

You and I on a
white sandy beach and ocean view
is my next dream vacation. But as long as
I'm with you. I am in complete
