So we decided that the challenge for the month of December will be a two-part challenge. The theme is 'Joy'. After all, we're in the 'most joyous time of the year'. However, Joy can be interpreted in many ways--it can be an obvious sense of joy that we all share such as family, friends & loved ones or it can be a simple pleasure joy such as that first cup of warm coffee in the morning, reading a book or having your family dog cuddle up next to you!
The second part of the challenge is to include journaling on your page. Journaling must be at a minimum 3 sentences long & no cheating! Jotting down places & dates do not count. I want you to document your story & thoughts and explain why the subject you chose brings you joy. When something brings you joy--I find that it's very easy to talk about it.
One obvious thing that brings me joy is my family--but I wanted to share a different kind of activity that brings me much personal satisfaction & that's Zumba.
I love it & thoroughly enjoy it. It helps me release stress, keeps me & my heart healthy & it keeps my weight in check. Plus I've finally made my Hispanic heritage proud since ever since I started taking Zumba my Salsa & Merengue dancing skills have greatly improved!
Before I forget, here's the inspiration board I came up with for the challenge.
Scrapiniec. I inked them all with embossing ink & spread a bit of 'Star Dust' embossing powder by Stampendous onto them & heat set them. In person, all the chippies have a nice glimmer & shine to them.
The bright fuchsia organza ribbon star flower seen here are items from my stash. I have several of these in different colors up for grabs in my Etsy shop here.
Berry71Bleu blog throughout the month of December to see the other DT's take on this month's challenge. Do play along if you find the time--there are a couple of great prizes up for grabs.
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!
