Travel, teaching, and a new project

Hi everyone!!! It's a beautiful day in northern CA. I am feeling so grateful for the beautiful sky that I saw when I walked out my door this morning. It was also nice to feel the suns rays hitting my shoulders. LOVE!!!
This week I'm grateful for my health. I recently made a decision to work out. I've been out of shape for way too long. I've been amazed at how great I feel after a good work out. I have more energy, I feel good, and I'm motivated to try new things and eat better.
I wanted to show you some fun pictures of one of my last trip. This is a picture of Camille, Elizabeth, and I. We had such a great night!!!
Picture of my display at Ever After Scrapbook Store.
I had such a fun class!!!! Great gals!!!
I'm excited about my next set of classes at Imaginic Scrapbook Store in Puerto Rico!!! We are planning an awesome event!!!
I'm working on another project right now for yet another store!!! Here it is.
Well I think that's all for now. Thanks for coming by!! Please leave me a message. I love to read them!!!

Be happy for others good fortunes

I was having a conversation with my little girl last week. We were talking about some of the toys that she has and some that she wants REALLY REALLY bad that some of her friends have. Her friends got lucky because the toys come in little packages where you can't SEE the find out what you get when you open it. They went to the store together and each one opened a package. To make it more exciting, they took turns.
Friend #1--got a toy she wanted
Friend #2--Got a toy she wanted
Sierra--Got a toy she already had
I looked at Sierra's face and saw how sad she was that she didn't get one that she wanted...the two others got the ones she wanted and needed to complete her collection. At first she had a pouty face and kept looking at the one she received like she wanted to throw it in the garbage. I talked to her about it and told her how we should be happy for others when good things happen to them. We talked about it for a bit and she seemed to feel better. Later on that day I heard her in her room telling someone that she loved them and that she had a special place for them in her room. I walked over to see who she was talking to and it happened to be the little toy that she got.
The other day a friend called me completely upset! She found out that her friend totally betrayed her and almost ruined something really amazing for her.
It made me so sad to think how someone who was supposed to be her friend could be so mean. They didn't like that something good was happening to someone else and went out of her way to ruin it.
So here's my question...why is it so hard for some people to be happy for others?
I asked Sierra why she wasn't happy for her friends at first when they got what she wanted? Her answer to me (the innocence of a child) because I wanted one too.
Sometimes people get what we want. That's just life. Be happy for them. Let only positive thoughts and actions in and out. You will see that good things will happen.
My dad always says, "Invite positivity, and you will feel positive. Invite negativity...negative things will find you.
I believe this with all my heart. I hope that we can feel happy for others. It will help us to feel good about ourselves.
Have a great week!

Remenber this moment-Travel

I love looking at the different pictures that I have from all over the world. It's so fun to see where I've been, whether it's been by myself or with friends and family.
I created this layout while I was at my good friend, Gina's house. Her wonderful husband Frank gave me a notebook and I loved the pages inside, so I decided to use one to create with. The rest of the papers, stickers, and more are by Echo Park.
I had already used the star and the word amazing stickers in another project so I used the negative. I like how it looks.
Thanks for looking!!!
