My Head is a Fog...


I hate to say it, But I am still not feeling the best.  As much as
I am trying to fight this cold, It is fighting me right back.
I have been getting lots of rest.. Drinking plenty of fluids.
Zoning out on cold medication..
And I still don't feel well.  And the sad part is that
I have had no time to play in my craft room at all..
I guess its a good think I got my CCCB project done early!





But I have been laying on the couch play with photos.
This is my story board for my Beyond Layers class
with Kim Klassen. They were looking for photos of our day.
Well my days lately are pretty ugly.
I think these tell a much better story.
A story about another journey I am on!
A creative Journey.



********



Over a City Crafters there is a fun challenge
going on..   Ros our host this week wants us to use
the colors of the Rainbow..  So I took that literally.




I created this "She Art Gal"
Standing under a Rainbow. 



I cut all the colors of the rainbow out of scrapbook paper. .
Then stitched them together..



I had found the perfect quote to go along with this.
I just love it.

To get all the detail on this challenge you can head on over to
City Crafters Challenge Blog.

Thank so much for stopping by.
All your comments mean so much to me.

Hugs, Linda

Your photos are beautiful Linda as is your rainbow.

I hope you get feeling better my friend!
