Challenge wins and placings

Tuesday 20 August 2013



I wanted to make a special card for the Challenges at Path of Positivity and Bugaboo, and here is what I created. It is for my lovely BF Carol. She has been through a lot herself and seen me through much too! We try very hard to stay perky and optimistic. We feel negativity is so draining and depressing. We are always happy together and just love to spend time in each others company. I would be lost without you darlin Carol!

  21. Hey Jackie,

    I am so pleased that you were able to join us again this month over on the Path of Positivity. I enjoy seeing your beautiful creations and this one is no exception. As Suze said, I love how you have made all the different DP's work so well together. Your sentiment is also beautiful and perfectly matched with this month's theme. How wonderful to have a best friend that you share your optimism with and that you are able to help each other to fend off the negativity. Negativity is so pervasive and I know that when more people stand together against it, miracles can happen.

    May you continue to allow optimism to shine its light on your life.
