Published!....and Falling...


TONS of surprises for you today!

We're one day late for the next challenge at All About Me, but for good reason!  Challenge #21 asks you What's YOUR FEAR?  As some of my bloggy friends may know, I have many.  And sadly, SOME have nearly come true, but God had other plans and gave me an extension on life...he he!  But I am veering off the subject!  One of my HUGE fears is FALLING!  I'm afraid of heights...to the point of panick attacks.  I have to do breathing exercises going up elevators of VERY tall buildings (YES, THIS WASHINGTONIAN HATES THE SPACE NEEDLE)!  I can't look out windows from high for too long....and forget about peering over a balcony!  Yikes!  But that's not all.  I can't even look at it on tv!  If someone is on a ledge I get sick, if the camera shot is overlooking the street from up high I turn my head, if my kids are NEAR a window or balcony, I watch and let them enjoy...but then say after a few minutes "Get away from there or you'll give me a heart attack!"  Yes, friends, I too have issues!  Don't let my cheery smile fool you!

And since I'm usually quite long-winded, I couldn't say this all on my layout because it would take away from it all...so I wrote a quick poem....ha ha!

journaling:
My legs turn to jell-o when I think about being up HIGH….or when I see someone too close to the edge, looking down below. My heartbeat quickens, I can’t seem to breathe. I pray for the moment to pass and that TWISTING in my heart to ease, with the return to SAFETY.

And this leads into my NEXT surprise.......I'VE BEEN PUBLISHED!  He he.  This layout is in
Scrap Street Magazine because the All About Me blog was featured!  And along with myself, my talented AAM ladies have also been part of this honor!  Wooooohoooo!
Check the article out HERE!

Gosh, it feels so good for all of us!  We've created and shared out of love and we're getting recognized!  I'm so happy for AAM and Melissa and the rest of the DT!  They're so talented!

Once again, I created with my FAVE Pink Ninja Addicts Kit....Accidentally Kelly!  Ninja Masters...I dunno how you do it month to month, but your kits are so rockin' cool!


Another surprise....ready?  WE HAVE A SPONSOR THIS MONTH!  Yah!  So now, you HAVE to play along!  Come on!  You know you want to!

Who is it you ask?   Well....giggle...you will have to go to AAM to find out!  In the interest of being lazy...ha ha...I will let Melissa take it away...she'll reveal the rest of the surprises to you!  So give my AAM girls some love by checking it out and commenting!  They love it when you visit!

So...what's one of your fears?

Hugs,
Mo
