IT's ABOUT TIME!! (Challenge #5)

CURRENT EVENTS... what about the world affects you??

OK, this is NOT as hard as you would think.

Besides taking forEVER to post our challenges lately- :) -I was talking to some people about this challenge blog, and more than once I have been told, they are hard. Or that they took thought.

OK, I am NOT apposed to that!! I'm NOT! But I don't want you to pass the challenge by either, because you perceive it too hard.

Either way, I want you to join us... because your story matters. Because all we have is this very moment... then the next... and that last moment, you might want to remember what it was like to love that moment. Scrapbooking is good for that.

So current events that affect you... the war, the economy, our schools, the housing issues, gas prices, hurricanes, tornadoes, a local issue... what affect that world, and then affects you.

Tell us about it. Share the story that you can look back in in more detail.

OK girls... I will give you a couple extra days... God knows I have been needing extra time lately!!

Post by Sunday night the 21st at midnight, Cali time... I look forward to your layouts!!

And from our designers NOT being affect by current events, that have power... etc... PLEASE, again, keep Kate in your prayers-and all the people dealing with the hardships caused by the current hurricane activity!!

Sasha:
We all may not agree with who should win
We all may not want a black president
We all may not want a women VP
We all may not be ready for change
but this is history and either way
rather we like it or not you know
History is being made as I type.



Ashleigh:Theresa:
Holy crap...the gasoline prices...
The electric bill is going higher & higher
It is going to cost double what it did last year
to heat hour home this year.
With everything going up,
what does that mean to our family?
It means less driving.

Less eating out.
Less SHOPPING,
Heavy sweaters in the winter!
It sucks!!
I just want it all to STOP!

this challenge does seem tough... maybe not tough, but it will take a lot of thought! Hope to fit this one in ;)

Okay, apparently my page was a little over-dramatic ~ I managed to make my bff worry about my state of mind. I just kinda wrote about things I worry about (I am a worrier). Tell me what you think ~ here it is:

I love this challenge. I'm hosting a crop in Nov, right before the election to get my scrapping friends to scrap their perspective of living through this historical event! WOW
