Sooooo over at Canadian Scrapbooker, they have something called the 'Sketchy Challenge'.  Every month they post an awesome sketch and you use your craftiness to come up with your own layout based on that sketch.

This month, this is the sketch...

And this month I decided to take part, and came up with this!

I used Doodlebug Designs 'Take Note' 6x6 paper pack, the colors are amazing and I love the pop the black edges gave them.....

So originally, back in April I think it was.... I purchased 2 tickets for the P!nk concert in Winnipeg for the end of October.  This was meant to be mine and Dari's 'F*ck off Cancer' weekend when she was all done treatment, etc.  We were so excited to go, she got almost as excited as she was for a Disney trip.  We were going to do dinners, and movies, and maybe some massages and hot tubbing.....  Unfortunately fate wasn't aligning the stars the proper way, and our exciting getaway weekend together never happened.  So, when the time came for the concert in October, and I didn't have my sidekick to go with me, I decided to take my oldest daughter, Tayla. The concert ended up being postponed until this past week, January 14th..... and it was sooooo worth the wait. Here are a few of the pictures I got.... they WILL end up on a few scrappy pages ;)

One of the best nights of my life, and more than likely the best concert that I'll ever go to.  She puts on a breathtaking show, it's unbelievable!!!  LOVE HER SO MUCH!!!!

Bring it on, 2014

I won't pretend that I'm excited for a new year, because I am not really excited. LOL!  But, I am ready to face whatever it brings!  Resolutions in this house fall by the wayside very quickly so I didn't make any.... However, I did decide that it was time to scrapbook again.  It's been a year since I did any actual intensive scrapping, full of interest and heart..... I lost my mojo, my desire... you name it, I lost it.  There was just too much else going on that needed my attention.  

I felt the push to scrap a few weeks ago so I started cleaning up the space.  Then I came across all of Dari's Disney photopass pictures that she paid an arm and a leg for, and was so very proud of.  Just sitting in envelopes, not being enjoyed....  I decided that those are what was going to get me back in the game and I dove in.

Here is what I've done so far in the last week!!  I can honestly say that I haven't felt like this about scrapping for a very long time, my heart feels happy and it's back to being a kind of therapy for me, although it's hard looking at her beautiful smiling face on each page that I'm doing.....but I smile too :)

I am so happy to be doing this again, and I can't wait to have much more to share with you!!!
If you are reading this, thanks for sticking it out with me! :)
