The tag goes like this: Write 8 of your blog friends names in a unique way and post them. Then come back over and let me know. You must write the blogger's name that tagged you, then add 7 others.
Okay, I may be creative in some ways, but this one is difficult for me. Sarah, you did a great job with this challenge (you will see how amazing she is when you visit her blog) and I am so honored that you thought of me, but I am changing the rules of the challenge. Sarah, I loved how you did your 8 names; especially mine!
Here is my challenge: I am highly motivated by music (as is my daughter, Julia aka "June junior"). Post as a comment a song and artist that highly motivates you.
Here is mine:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myTzrtr46dI Il Divo & Celine Dion "I Believe in You"
(The entire song is beautiful, but the chorus is especially meaningful for me, since I am following my heart and my dreams!)
Lonely the path you have chosen
A restless road no turning back
One day you will find you light again
Don't you know
Don't let go the chance
Follow your heart
Let your love lead through the darkness
Back to a place you once knew
I believe, I believe, I believe in you
Follow your dreams
Be yourself an angel of kindness
There's nothing that you cannot do
I believe, I believe, I believe in you
Tout seul tu t'en iras tout seulCouer ouvert à l'univèrsPoursuis ta quêteSans regarder derrièreN'attends pasQue le jour se léveSuis ton etòileVa jusqu'oì ton revê t`emporteUn jour tu le toucherasSi tu crois,si tu crois,si tu crois en toiSuis ta lumièreN'étint pas la flamme que tu portesAu fond de toi souviens toiQue je crois,que je crois,que je crois en toi
Someday I'll find you
Someday you'll find me too
And when I hold you close
I know that it's true
(Repeat English chorus)
What, are you still here? Leave your comment and go visit Sarah's blog!

My next scrapbook pages will be of the girls' 2nd birthday party. I'm feeling a huge brain fog right now, so I'm taking a break.
Instead of filing away the scraps of dp in my already overflowing accordian file, I decided to try to use them on cards first. The top left card (and subsequent use of white scallops on two other cards) are scraps left on my table from my All About U card class (blog entry: http://simplyelegantpapercrafts.blogspot.com/2007/07/all-about-u-card-class.html). I added a Bazzill chip to the front. The other four cards are made from some of the dp from my Happy Easter 2004 layout that I blogged 3 days ago.
Good news! Most of you know I began selling my greeting cards at Greenberry's Coffee & Tea in Leesburg, VA, 6 months ago. I average selling 8 cards per week. This month I began selling at the Greenberry's in McLean, VA. The first 10 days, I sold 15 cards in McLean! The manager called me Tuesday night and told me the good news. My dh had a meeting the next day in McLean, so I sent him to do inventory and re-stock my little basket. So this means in a non-holiday season I need to average 2.5 cards per day to keep up. I did not make any cards yesterday, so I made these 5 today. These would not win any card contests, but they will sell. Which one is your favorite? Please leave me a comment :) I love comments!

Like yesterday, this was actually a one page kit (I think the right page). I used the scraps from the kit to create the left page. The stitching is actually rub-ons that were included in the kit. All I had to do to complete was mat my photos on white cs, print out my journaling, and use my QK Paige font for the title. I'm liking this instant gratification...
