Scrapbook Challenge : 7 Wonders of Your World

I love to travel.  During the year, I dream of all of the places I would like to explore.  Part of my list include items from the 7 Wonders of the World.  Do you know what the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World are?  How about the Modern World?  Read on to find out …

It is now your turn to come up with the 7 Wonders of Your World.  OK, so the lists above only mention physical structures but you do not have to limit yourself to physical structures or things.  What are 7 wonderful things you have some connection with?  What are 7 wonderful things that you have had a hand in helping, aiding, or guiding?  What are the 7 things that are most important to you?  (To me, this challenge goes along with the Pride Challenge — instead of listing one thing, can you come up with 7?)

Are you ready to share the 7 Wonders of Your World?  Interpret it anyway you wish.  I am anxious to see what wonders ignite your world!  Be ready to share your layout(s) on Saturday, July 10.

Scrapbook Challenge : Pride

Me : Simply put, I’m proud of what I do.

Felicia : Proud mama. (By the way, yellow is my new favorite color and I’m totally diggin’ this pattern paper.  Felicia, you have a lot to be proud of!)

Nathalie : Another proud mama.  (I so love the details in this layout — the outlining of the stars, the star used to replace the “o” in “so”, the shrunken certificate to fit on a 6×12 layout.  I also love that Nathalie’s son is an awesome junior scientist!  Can’t wait for him to be part of the scientific community.)

Zarogina : Proud aunt.  (OK, I have to admit that I would not know what to do with this pretty pattern paper.  Zarogina, you pulled it off like a charm!  Love the way you attached the journal pieces.  Sweet layout.)

Thanks for participating ladies!  I’m having so much fun doing the challenges and love seeing your amazing creations.  Keep them coming.
