Power House - Challenge #58

This challenge at CMS was so much fun.  I got to do a step by step process with this page.  It was my first one and I really enjoyed myself.  Make sure you check out the post to see the details of how I made this page...

Here is the result and some close up shots.

The picture was taken below Niagara Falls.  From the best of my knowledge, this deserted building used to be a power plant.

I've gotten away from journalling for a while and I really miss seeing it on those pages.  My new goal is to journal on every page.

Keep Calm and Hide - Challenge YOUrself #4

Challenge #4 at Challenge YOUrself

What drives you?  What makes you happy?    
Is it hanging with the family and friends, gardening, shopping, running, reading, working, traveling, etc... 
Challenge YOUrself #4: Keep Calm And __________
Create a layout using the quote "Keep Calm and______"
<<<  Cannot be scrapbooking related!  >>>  
Remember to include YOU in the photo ;)

Oh boy, when I first started on this challenge, I had a hard time coming up with what it is I like to do when I'm trying to stay calm.  To be honest, I'm an even keel type of person.  There really isn't anything really puts me over the edge.

I also like to do A LOT of things.  I like to read, I like to run, I like to decorate, but most of all, I like to scrapbook, but if you read the rules above, you can't use that!

I wanted to use some of my scraps, so I thought I'd throw a bunch of misc papers to the BG and see what stuck.  Here is what I came up with.

Technically, my title is Keep Calm & Hide, because every time I sit down to read, one of my boys just has to have a question answered...

I attacked my paper scraps to see what looked together.  I knew that I wanted a miss match type of look.

Stephen King is my favorite author.  I collect his books.
