A Little Blog Hopping

This is my take on the DirtyFitGirls Blog Hop Challenge!!!
Three Blogs...One Page ( The Blogs and challenges are listed below)

A little background on me: Anyone who truly knows me knows that I am a HUGE Disney fan, (the movies, the characters, the MUSIC) Ariel is my favorite character!!! When I was younger I tried out for the New Mickey Mouse Club ( I sang Debbie Gibson's song Lost In Your Eyes)! Yes the very one that spawned Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and yes Ms. Christina Aguilera whose song is featured on my page and one that I have been wanting to use for a very long time! Why? Because I often wonder about my reflection!!! Thanks for looking and as always Take Care and Have Fun!!!
First Blog, http://sassylilsketches.blogspot.com/wants you to use this sketch:

Second Blog, http://dirtyscraps.blogspot.com/ wants you to use this as your motivation for the page:
Getting dirty is not about scrapping only those bad moments or only the good. It's all about reflection and what YOU think, how your mind works and how you feel. So make this Layout about Reflection, maybe you are reflecting on past mistakes, or reflecting on a past blessing? Maybe it is how you see your reflection in the mirror?We all reflect, don't be scared to get dirty! Scrap your emotions, scrap them the way you want, now go get dirty!
And last but most certainly not least, http://scrapfit.blogspot.com/wants to see some ribbon and some silver to represent reflection!!!

Thanks to all 3 for the challenge and for introducing me to other great blogs out there as I am just getting into this big wide world of blogging!!! Thanks Again!!!

I Wanna Talk About Me

Well since I have been working on a whole lot of me pages lately, I had to dig out my All About Me album( I think I might need to go album hunting because the one that I have now I am not feeling it) which has been a long time because until recently I haven't scrapped in a really long time and when I opened it up I saw this page!!! It reminds me of why I love scrapbooking so much!!! It is a creative outlet to tell my story the way I see it, pages upon pages of life lessons, happy moments, and even the sad ones and if ever something should happen to me, my girls will know how much I loved them and what life was and is to me!!! Well enough of my ramblings, have a great day!!! Take Care and Have fun!!!

Guest Designer at Dirty Scraps... Woot Woot!!!

The 3rd challenge at Dirty Scraps was all about Broken relationships!!! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to say was broken so I worked on two layouts!!! Wow Thank you so much Pinky for deciding to feature them both! I am honored!!!My first layout out is titled Broken in this Moment and features a poem I wrote after my 1st miscarriage and is a layout about how I let moments break me and make me withdraw in when I should really try and let go and move forward which I am really trying to do, because I have two beautiful girls who right now deserve their Mom at her very best instead of one who sometimes just feels so broken!!!

My next layout is titled, As Broken As It Gets and is a layout about the brother that I have who is in prison! I wasn't sure if I was going to let this layout go or not but I am came to the conclusion that while you may judge me by the words that come from my heart or by my brothers actions, I am simply just wanting to be free of this heavy heart and this heavy mind and become better at being who I want to be!!!
My journal reads this: This is a picture of my brother and I!!! Yes this is the brother that I have who is in prison! So if you are reading this and you know me, even if you don't know me, me and my family are not defined by my brothers actions! It is what he decided to do in one moment that would put him there! If you are wondering that one moment has nothing to do with me but that one moment would definitely break this relationship and throw all trust out the window! Take note that in no way, shape, or form, do I agree with what he did at all!!! AT ALL!!! I tried to be supportive of my brother though but not the way that you might think!!! I just mean I wouldn't want to be stuck in that place all alone, so I would take the phone calls, the letters, and I would even go visit him a few times which really creeped me out because you have all of these inmates with family and friends all squished together in one room! So this relationship is broken and no matter how hard one might try and get it back it will always remain broken. There will always be a strain or tension there and once you lose trust with somebody it is very hard to get or gain it back, if at all possible! The letters have stopped coming, the calls don't come anymore because somehow my phone started blocking them, and I don't remember the last time I went to visit, so for me this relationship is As Broken As It Gets!!!

With these Girls... I am Forever Changed

This is my second challenge for the Dirty Scraps Blog(http://dirtyscraps.blogspot.com/) in which you scrap a pivotal point in your life!!! I chose my pivotal points to be the birth of my girls although I believe life is made up of many pivotal points!!! When it comes down to it these are the two moments that I had been waiting for all of my life and the two most changing, as of now!!! I'm in the process of trying to change myself, so that I may be better for them!!! Not that I am not good for them now!!! These girls are my greatest joys!!! So this week I didn't get real Dirty or go too deep but I think my small amount of journaling says enough!!! Thanks for looking!!! Take Care and Have fun!!!

My journaling reads: In one moment you whole life can change! Isn't that crazy? I believe life is made up of many pivotal moments!!! These are the two most beautiful and important moments of my life! Sometimes change is good!
