word of the year

I did a LO today for a challenge - well actually several challenges - the first is for ScrapFit #57 "word of the year." I really got into creating this page 'cos this year has had its ups and downs! The first 3 months of 2011 I was in and out of the hospital, the summer was shot with the high temps we had, and I had several steroid treatments which are just plain hard on my body. These last 6 months have really been AWESOME! I joined Club CK and had the opportunity to meet and scrap with some wonderful ladies who have become friends I treasure! I started on a new M.S. medicine and feel a ton better! I had prayed for a long time to feel even just a little bit better and God has blessed me with so much more - more energy, better walking, just better all the way around! So I chose "be" as my word of the year. To be all sorts of different! I had fun coming up with ways to "be!"

I am also using this LO for 2 challenges over at Frosted Designs: for Fab Friday and Sketch Along Tuesdays Sketch #30. The ribbon I used runs along towards the top of the page.
Ladies at both sites - I just want to say thank you for all the inspiration and motivation y'all have provided me these past 6 months. What you have provided I call "scrap therapy" because the inspiration helps my mind and keeps my somewhat creative juices flowing and the motivation keeps me busy and active! What I have - multiple sclerosis - is a day-by-day disease and its hard to deal with sometimes but like I told the ladies at the crop I was able to go to scrapping has helped me to forget for a time that I am sick. So thank you ladies ever so much! Blessings!
