If I could be granted three wishes...

Sheryl says, KAYA!

I had a holiday season hangover when I did this challenge, notice the PPS? :-) I didn't have to think long to write down my three most fervent wishes, it's been in my heart for a long time, after all. :-)
Journaling:
2008
1.) ...that my daughters continue to be healthy and accident-free in the coming year
2.) ...that I finally find and make time to apply for law school and start the fulfillment of a childhood dream
3.)...that I could finally have my very own library/scrap room this year

Materials:
Cardstock: DCWV
PPS: Chatterbox SB Walls: Holiday Floral, Holiday fern, Red Ribbon stripes, Burgundy dot; CI Narratives
Chipboards: Provocraft & Basic Grey alphas
Ink: Colorbox Pigment Ink
Simply Scrappy Deckler & Stitching guide; Tags template

Techniques:
Tearing & Inking, layering of PPS

About me:
Working Mom. Happy Mama to Lilaa and Maia, wife to my one big love. Rekindled my love affair with Scrapbooking in May 2006. Overwhelmed by a lot of things going on in my life now all at the same time. Just glad I have scrapbooking to bust the stress away. I also c0-own and co-manage an online bookstore Bookoto.com with a good friend and kababayan Julie Kelly who is also a member of Pinoy Scrapbookers.

The first thing that struck me in your LO is the mood which your PPS created... soft and wistful which perfectly matches your beautiful photo. Very effective use of color... I absolutely love this LO. Great job, Sheryl :D
