If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher! We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month from all the comments left on the design team blogs! Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments!

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far! I am currently battling laryngitis so my husband has been pretty happy the last few days with me not being able to talk ;) 

Last Wednesday my doctor called with my test results and biopsy findings. We had some expected news and some not so expected news. No cancer, but some pre-cancerous type changes that he wants to keep an eye on. He switched one of my meds to a stronger dose. So I started that this week. So far it has been going ok.

So with all these health things that I have been going through it really makes me start to think about how much I really need to start focusing on getting healthier and doing good things for my body. One of our Design Team Members, Shanna, is a beachbody coach. She has been doing an AMAZING AMAZING job making healthier choices and sticking to her workouts and staying motivated which is a struggle for me. I am good for about 2 weeks then I don't know what happens to my brain. She has a really awesome facebook page called Shanna's Fit & Fun where she posts workout tips, motivational posts, if you find yourself in the same boat as I am in and needing to add some healthier choices to your life, check out her page. I am super proud of Shanna for sticking to her program, especially with two little ones at home and still finding time to pump out her gorgeous Design Team Projects! She is truly an inspiration!

So in honor of Shanna I thought I would re-share one of my FAVORITE projects that she created. She is so talented not only with her out of this world coloring skills, but she is so creative with her mixed media projects. I have been wanting to delve into the Art Journaling world but find it a little intimidating still. Sometimes I feel like I just don't have a good mix of "stuff" to add to my pages yet to make them Art Journal worthy which is silly of course. Because an Art Journal page has no rules, you are supposed to just play and have fun and try new things. If it sucks...gesso it and start over - LOL! You will notice in the store that I will be starting to add more mediums, stencils, stamps, sprays and other things that would be great things to use not only with making cards and scrapbook page backgrounds, but mixed media projects too. Super excited for that! 

Here is Shanna's gorgeous Art Journal Page:

I love the colors and that is such a pretty quote as well! The dylusions sprays with the ghosting makes such a cool background!
