my favorite destination and some news!

Good evening all.......I have a small project I wanted to share and some really good news too... First the project is just a art journal page I was playing with...I saw a post on Faber-Castell called take the challenge,Every month, on the first Monday, they post a challenge and their take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. The following Monday, we will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that week's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
Today's challenge is about making something about your most favorite destination...

So of course I used Maine,I miss living there but I am so thankful that I still get to go there for vacations but its such a long drive from Wisconsin....my favorite spot is at the lake...I used to just sit and read the paper...the quiet was so nice and the scenery is absolutely beautiful!
for this page I actually used the comics page from a Maine news paper I had stashed away......some old pieces of cardboard I had around some random stamps just because I hadn't used them yet and wanted to see what they looked like...lol and of course a couple mists...

thanks for coming to take a peek .....its not the best page but I'm still learning and an art journal is the perfect place to try new thing!

Now for my news.....
If you've been a follower of my blog from the beginning you know these last 9 months or so have been heartbreaking,I've struggled with a very hard loss and I am slowly learning how to live with it....We had to put off the wedding we had planned last October (it just didn't seem right to have it at that time) so this time we didn't plan,we didn't even invite anyone....no stress,no wasted money,no guests to fly out....have you caught on to my news yet? on July 3rd I got Married to the man of my dreams....and it was perfect!

yes I know the bands don't match but they fit us perfect....that and we bought them years ago LOL

Have a wonderful 4th of July!
