Some time you journal for a challenge and sometimes you journal for yourself. This is one of those pages I made in a moment when I gave that big scream when my husband was having a bit more health issues (luckily they didn't tun into anything gigantic although still, they are there now- something else).
I had pre-posted the photo thinking it would make a good post, and then yesterday the new try It on Tuesday challenge began and voila, it fits that too.
So now the page I made for me is also good for a challenge.
Can't complain about that.
So check out the "quotes on artwork" for the next 2 weeks at Try It On Tuesday.
There is a bit of a glare on the right wing, but the dark edged of the page are purposely done. The girl in the heart doesn't look anything like me but her expression was how I felt at the time. The big heart is a stamp from Stamper's Anonymous. I believe it is designed by Michael deMeng, but I might be totally wrong about that, so I apologize in advance if I am off.
Otherwise its a Gelli printed background, some other stamps by Allie Edwards and Rubber Stamps of America, a little bit of assorted paint, a glitter pen and also some Stabilo pencil.
That's all for me. The mid-week, end of the quarter at school business is keeping me out of trouble.
Have a wonderful day.

I keep wondering how you are making it with your husband so sick and you working full time. But I remember that 50 hour week and going to school full time. Somehow we do it and it seems routine after awhile. Your lovely quote and gelli print tell that story of frustration when suddenly we take on a bit more than we are prepared for. Chin up, dear.

BTW, thanks for the offer to send dies. I'll get with you offline soon. We need to "talk" about this.
