**Your title must have "climb" in it.

**You must use a star on your page.

**Your photo(s) must be in black and white

**I need to see 2 patterned papers and some chipboard/grungeboard.

That's it...have fun!
Can't wait to see what you do!

Here is my layout for this challenge...

"Climb to your Stars"

When one door Closes, another door OPENS......

This is going to be my MOTTO for me, everything HAPPENS for a reason, it can be something small or something huge, but for me this year...I'm NOT going to Sweat/Stress on the little things, going to concentrate on being HaPPY and enjoying life with all of my family and friends.
So with that said...I was recently stressed about getting some things done for a deadline and everything around me wasn't going the way I wanted it to(because that is how life rolls sometimes, right?!!)and just sat down, sent an email and let it GO. I was fine with it, no big deal...a couple of friends ask me "WHY", didn't really have a good reason, except it felt right...WELL, then TODAY...another door open, I didn't expect it...just happened....I'm HaPPY and that is what matters, right!!!!

So, I've been scrapping again and HAVING so much fun...Here are a couple of my layouts that I've done the last couple of days...

One Year Ago
This layout I did for the 2010 Weekly Sketches that started up over at are also having a "Ring in the NEW YEAR" Cyber Crop starting January 15-17th...Join us for lots of fun challenges, Games and Chats!!!

Photo Outtakes
I also did this layout for "Creative Scrappers" Sketch #85...LOVIN' all of the inspiration and sketches that I get over there!!

WOW, Can you believe that 2010 is finally here...This year is going to be a great one for me...
I'm so grateful for so many things in my life and don't NEED to worry about things that I have NO control over!!!

I was able to finally sit down and scrapbook abit today and got this layout done for the ScrapFIT Challenge Blog and for Michelle's Friday Night Sketch over at Tallyscrapper...felt so good to actually get creative!!!

The challenge over at ScrapFIT was to use the Phrase, "It's a Wonderful Life..." and to do some Stitching on your layout!!
