He-Art Journal Challenge week 20, and a run for the border.

I forgot to post my Challenge pages for the Greeting Farms He-Art Challenge

WEEK 20 - I Have a Dream

Assignment: Create a spread or a page that is based on a dream, goals, wish, etc. Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!

I am really happy with how these pages turned out

I wanted to do something "pretty" as I have been doing a lot of projects in grungy or vintage and needed to do something different.
I used glimmer mists for the background paper.
I wanted them to look dreamy, and I think I accomplished that

 I had used some of my older stamps...some never even touched an ink pad before, tsk, tsk.

 I was thinking of doing one page about my nightmares and the second about my dreams.
But I thought everyone might be getting tired of my zombies, teehee.

Onto My Day:
My SIL, Sharon, Heather and I all went across the border. I had some packages to pick up...and...some to mail away. When we go over the border we always go for lunch :)
It was pretty nice out today and was able to kick the pumpkins free of our steps, teehee.

I also found out today that Marlene from Disgused as a GrownUp ( see yesterdays post on the card I made with her image) is retiring from the blogging world. I am so sad. I love Marlene! Her humour always puts a smile on my face....guess I will just have to stalk her by email ;)

I started wrapping Christmas gifts. Boy I got my daughters a lot of gifts ;)
I still need to work on my Christmas cards.
Tomorrow is going to be an all day Christmas Card Making Marathon :)  Wish me luck.

I sent my daughters out to grocery shop while I was wrapping gifts. I think they made wise choices....I haven't checked.
Come to think of it, I haven't got my change back...I am sure they didn't buy $200.00 worth of groceries, lol.

Hope you had a creative Monday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Love the mist....where did you go for lunch?

  2. you did a spot onjob... this IS really pretty! i'm not done with my wrapping or cards too. :( note to self: start next christmas in september!

  3. once again you did a great job!

    i am done wrapping for the boys now I need to wrap hubby's presents! I am hoping to be all done by Sunday! fingers crossed

  4. Very nice dream page.. Glad you had a safe trip to the border and back-is it a far drive for you??? It is about 1.5 hours to the border here, but a 3 hour drive to Lethbridge and 5hours to Calgary.
    Good luck with your card making-the few I did are in the mail.
    Good for you on the gift wrapping. I have some done, but still waiting for gifts to arrive.

  5. I love the page!

    I always intend to make cards, but I let it go for too long and end up buying them, because I run out of time!

    I have to do all my wrapping still, but all of my presents are in New York, and I'm in Chicago, so I guess I'll be doing them after I land on the 23rd. Which is sad for me, because I love to wrap!

  6. Very nice! I have half my wrapping done, wrapping is my least favorite thing to do so I've been putting it off..I probably should get it finished.

  7. I love the glimmer mists and the butterflies! So pretty :) In glad you got some wrapping done, it's a pain for me, not something I enjoy! Haha!

  8. 200 dollars worth of groceries is a lot! lol

    i havent been to the border since last year..

    i love it!

  9. Love your dream page. The butterflies is really cute. Hope you have fun on Christmas cards marathon hehe... remember to take pics and blog about them. Love to see your coloring.

  10. the misting is so pretty! good luck on the cards... I have 1/2 of mine in the I have to make myself do the other half soon hahaha! Sounds like you had fun across the border!
