Good Morning, sweet friends ~
still flying right along in these unbelievably crazy days, trying to catch my breath and keep a smile on through sheer exhaustion! It's been one event after another but despite the insanity, I know how absolutely blessed we are. Our son just finished up school on Friday and we anxiously await his sisters finishing in 2 more weeks, including one of whom will be graduating and the other moving on to the same high school :)
Today marks the new Riley and Company bi-weekly challenge and this week, our hostess is Jovita! She brings us a fun challenge: "anything but a card" - how crafty, challenging + creative!
Being an avid reader, my mind went straight for a bookmark *wink!*
Using the newly released stamp "Strong", an absolutely lovely sentiment, I created this simple book marker with bold colors of yellow and blue. And the best part even yet ... this entire bookmark was made from everything scraps! Tiny slivers of dsp, left over ribbon and buttons that needed a turn :)
To play create a card using Riley and Company images. Once you have created your card/project come back here and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword RILEY1113. We can't wait to see what you create!
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams blogs today so see what they created for this challenge - you can find them in my sidebar!
I leave you with this beautiful quote today :)
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best.
Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!
--Christian D. Larson
Big hugs to you, Bigger Blessings!
