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

This is going to be my MOTTO for 2010...to 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 Tallyscrapper.com...We 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!!

What a great idea to do a layout about photo outtakes, too cute!

I totally agree, when one door closes another one opens! I so hope the door that opened is going to uplift you this year!

LJ your words are so true. You can't sweat the things you can't change and you can only be you so be happy with who you are. It's all good!
