Sorry about it taking so long to get this posted as I promised it would be here yesterday, but I was up all night Sunday night with my face and felt horrible in every possible way yesterday - so that was my challenge from yesterday. Today I feel some better - better enough to take the photo, but not well enough to scrap anything.  But I still plan on working on the challenges from Shimelle's online scrap weekend at Pretty Paper.True Stories when I feel up to it.  Obviously I am not doing the Challenges in order.  So here is the next one I have completed; it requires dividing the page into quadrants:

Challenge #14:  Make a page using quadrants

I'm not listing supplies today as I really have no clue, other than the fact that it is all DCWV cardstock & DCWV patterned paper in the top left, and October Afternoon patterned paper everywhere else.  As far as the rest, well they're so old I'm not even bothering.  But I will say that while I did each quadrant separately, I tried to maintain my triangles - the triangle of black in the top 2 two & bottom left and a triangle of kraft in my top right & bottom two.  So even though they were done separately, they weren't completely willy-nilly.

Well, that's really all I feel like saying now.  Hope everyone has an inspired day.

  1. I'm so glad you were able to scrap and post this page! I've enjoyed seeing your creations and I hope this is a good, creative day for you! <>

  2. Thanks Cynthia - Sorry I didn't get to this yesterday - I didn't actually do the page yesterday but late the night before. Yesterday, I just couldn't do much but took a few minutes to post this Challenge. I so appreciate your kindness and you can't know how lovely it is to open my computer and see your comments. Have a blessed day.

  3. As I was going through the thumbnails of all the LOs to see if I had uploaded mine or not, this was a layout that jumped out at me. I LOVE it!

    I am not totally up with the symptoms of MS but I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and I know that scrapping can be too, too much for me sometimes. People get mad at me because I can barely help with cooking and cleaning and feel that scrapbooking is me 'wasting my time'. I am so proud of you and how much that you got scrapbooked. I am so proud that you made this time for yourself. And my friend and I both adore this layout!
    Take care,

    1. Allie: I so understand how you feel. And what so many people don't understand is that: while they may get frustrated with your inability to do chores, you have the GUILT for not being able to do them... I think I'll post about that because so many people do not understand all the mental crap that goes with being ill. My daughter also has fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue with her Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, so I very well understand. I am definitely going to post about how we feel and how the scrapbooking is related to that so check back tomorrow. Keep your head up and keep scrapping... and thank you so much for liking my layout. I promise i will look at your tomorrow, but as I went to Dr and posted on blog today, I think I need to rest for now. Thank you again.
