I'm still alive!

Hi friends,

I'm still alive in case you're wondering. We've just been incredibly busy packing and moving. In fact, I can't believe I managed to complete Challenge #6 this week at

This week's challenge:

The Power of 3
Basics:12x12 or 8.5x11 page size
Must be paper page not digital
3 pictures
3 buttons
3 different ribbons
3 different patterned papers (can be from same or different manufacturers)
3 word title
3 extra embellishments of your choosing (this can be ANYTHING not listed above and also can be 3 of the same things or 1 each of 3 different things just as long as it is not something already listed).
Cardstock/vellum is up to you. You can use as much or as little as you like.
Title can be made up of any item you choose. The rule of thirds does not apply here.
Ink/paint/pens are unlimited.
Also added in this challenge is journaling. I want some good journaling here please. More than just the basics of names, date, location. Tell a story.

So here is my take on the challenge.

3 pp- Basic Grey

3 buttons- button photo corner

3 different ribbons on my hidden journaling tag.

3 Extra embellishments- brad photo corner

3 word title: Circle of Life

I took my inspiration for this layout from the sun on the rug in the photos.
Hidden Journaling tag:
For your fourth birthday at Montessori the ritual celebrating each year of your life was performed. You carried a little globe around the circle of life rug. For each year since your birth you took a walk circling the sun on the rug symbolizing the revolution of the Earth around the sun. After each time around the sun, a candle was lit. The four years of your life was celebrated with 4 walks around the sun, lighting four candles and singing a special song. It is an awesome ceremony.

I will have Connor pick a name for that CHA Rak either today or tomorrow. About the only thing left to pack is the garage and my scrap room. I dread packing the scrap room!
