A Balanced Life is a Happy Life

Hello and happy Labor Day!  I hope you are enjoying this holiday by taking in some fun as summer starts to wind down.  I really do hate knowing the warm weather will be coming to an end soon.

Today I have a new layout to share with you.  This month at Challenge YOUrself we have a sketch to follow, along with an added twist.  You must incorporate the phrase "note to self" anywhere in your layout as well.  Here is my take.

I included the phrase above my picture as a subtitle.  You can include it in any way you'd like.  As a title, subtitle, in your journaling, with a stamp or a stencil...etc.  Just as long as it's included.  Great opportunity to get creative here!

I completed this challenge with my August 2014 Gossamer Blue scrapbook kit.  I know, it's an oldie but look at the papers.  They really compliment my photo!  The background paper is called Shine On by Simple Stories and it really tops it off.

What do you think?  I hope I've inspired you in some way to join in with us at Challenge YOUrself.  There are so many possibilities with our sketch this month and a fun prize to win as well.  I really look forward to seeing your creations!  You have until October 4th to link up.  And don't forget to include YOU in the photo!
That's it for today.  Thanks for giving me a visit and again, happy Labor Day!
