August Thank You Challenge

Hope you are all well. Did you feel challenged to scrap a negative that turned positive?? Thought I would get in early for the new month as tomorrow is a flat out day in our house!

This month's challenge is to scrap about a health problem. A result you are thankful for, treatment that is working or just the fact you are healthy and well.

This is my take on the challenge. One of our daughters has recently been diagnosed with a heart problem. I am very thankful for the fact that we finally have found what the problem is and that we have a 'name' for the problem. All our kids have had their health issues and I hope to scrap about the others one day, so this was a good place to start.

Journaling says "so proud of you and now we know about infrequent SVT" also contains hidden journaling about how proud I am of her.

I hope you feel inspired to scarp a health related Thank You layout and would love to see it, so please drop back here and leave a link for your layout.

Also a little plug for September's challenge, it will be a free for all but worth joining in. Ok have fun, take care and as always, thanks for visiting.

July Thank You Challenge

How did you go with the June Challenge? Did you find a deed to scrap?
This months challenge is to scrap a negative that turned out to be a positive (told you maths was involved!!!). My layout is about my love of all things music, she types this after a day of 4 noisy girls singing LOUDLY in the car! Growing up I was often told I was tone deaf and not to sing. Being told I couldn't sing just to stop me from singing. But it didn't stop me, as those around you would tell you I am forever making up songs and singing, humming or whistling! This layout is about the thought that if I wasn't told I couldn't sing I don't think I would enjoy music as much as I do today. I don't take it for granted and enjoy the noise that sometime envelopes me. I now know I can sing and have been told that I'm not at all tone deaf (thank goodness say those around me lol)

So this month's challenge is about something that may have altered your life, your way of thinking or just the way you are, for the better. I also thought of scrapping, and will do so in the future, about the arrival of our first daughter. She has a genetic skin disorder and we were told of the life to expect for her and us. Thankfully she is 1000 times better than the Doctors ever predicted and it's something we never take for granted and are very thankful for, a negative that turned into a positive.
Looking forward to seeing where this challenge takes you and would love to see your work, if you would like to post a link back here.
Thanks for visiting and hope the month is full of things to be thankful for.
