Happiness, Worries, Challenge and a Freebie!

Hi Everyone, Vanessa here (now that's something new... I know). Well, I was looking at Vivie's post of Memoir on the blog and thinking about how I need really badly to scrap what I've been feeling recently. I'm out of babies... My older girl will be off to Kindergarten in a couple of weeks and my little baby is starting pre-school. There has been so many mixed emotions about my children growing up I find it hard to explain. On one hand I'm really excited about Alissa going to grade K... she is going to a great school, right across the street that focus on environmental / energy conserve teachings (it's a public "green" school) and I know she will have so much fun there. I'm excited about her making new friends and learning new things. On the other hand, MAAAAN this is when you start losing control of what she sees, what she hears, what she learns... and that worries me. No, I'm not overprotective, and I do want them to see the world from different eyes than mine, but this is SOOOO mush easier in theory than practice hehehe.
And then, there is Maya... she is my baby and to think that she will be spending hours away from me just seems so crazy LOL.
So that's it, am I crazy? Do any of you feel/felt that way about their kids going to school, especially Kindergarten? Tell me I'm not alone pleeeeeease hehehe

Alright, but enough of me (sort of)... What I wanted to do was a journaling challenge. We made up a couple of word prompts for you guys and would like you to use it on a layout where you talk about things that you had to, will have to, had a hard time in or had a great time in LETTING GO. This can be as serious or as fun as you want it to be. Just make sure to spill your heart out and journal away.

I will be back later with my own layout.
And as always, everyone who participates on the challenge gets a little something ;)



We have been on a designing roll. And this is another NEW product available at Pixel Canvas (click on preview for link!). It's the Memoir Journaling Masks.

Check out the details:

It's three in one. It's a mask for a photo, it's got journaling areas, and it's got glitter. So it's done in layers! So you can have a bit of fun with it arranging it the way you like!!! And it's at Pixel Canvas.
