My 5 Top Dreams Layout

Today I met my friend Charlene at Archivers for a scrapbooking day!  MY aim was to get my March Challenge completed.  Of course I'm not part of the contest, but it wouldn't do for me not to complete my own challenge, would it?

First let me just say that my biggest dream would be to open the first craft store off planet.  Since the challenge required pictures, I asked my son the graphic artist to create a very quick image based on a very few ideas we threw back and forth!  Here is what we came up with and he drew! You can click on all the pictures to see larger versions.

Next I found the paper to go with it!  All the paper is from Fancy Pants new lines. And came up with this page.

With another 4 dreams to document, I definitely needed to make this a 2 page layout.  Here is page 2:

Dream 2 - to visit Europe and specifically to go back and visit Paris where I lived for close to a year in my teens.

Dream 3 - Cruising, lots of cruising to Europe, Australia, Alaska, Aruba, Martinique, and on and on.

Dream 4 - Going to CHA this summer in Chicago and at least one more time in Anaheim, CA.

Dream 5 - What list is complete without the traditional "A Thin'r Me.

Put the two layouts together and they look like this:

The most important comment for me though is mine at the bottom of the page. Dreams to goals, goals to reality. OK, so it might take a little extra effort to get that first craft store opened, but I must say, for the record, that it would have the largest selection of terra firma paper in the cosmos!

Now don't forget to add your entry to the blog entry about the contest and do post a comment!
