You know those quotes

Like...sometimes we must give up the life we planned to live the life that is waiting for us or the happiest people don't have the best of everything...they just make the best of everything. Or maybe the one about how hings turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

I found myself in that situation this past week.  I was so sad the day that the Bella Blvd calls went out and I didn't get one.  I did wake up last week to an email asking me to be a guest designer!  I was thrilled to represent their fabulous company in any way, so I said yes! 

It is not totally what I wanted, but it is probably where I need to be right now.  I can respect my other obligations, my family, work and my other life outside of scrapbooking.  Don't get me wrong, I still know what I want...but such is life. 

Cue Rolling Stones song here...You can't always get what you get what you need!

I am very excited to be a part of this list in any many friends and so much talent.

Here is one of my favorite layouts that I sent for the call!  I really loved everything I made and could not have created more freely or strongly than what I did.

I used the bright and fun Family Dynamix here!  I love, love, love those playing cards!  Thank you Laura and Stephanie for this opportunity!
