One of the amazing challenges at Scraps of Darkness
is called "Skeletons in the Closet" challenge.

One of their design team members, Lisa,  runs it, and is so creative in her thinking!!!  Her current challenge runs from September through November and is as follows:  WHO ARE YOU - WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING? You must use a current self portrait and a creative form of journaling to explain yourself on your layout. And, if you use photo editing, you get "extra credit."
For my layout, I blurred my self portrait and made it black and white. 

My journaling reads: Behind this smiling face lies a veil of doubt. Can I still do it? Can I still be a good nurse and a good mom to Katie and Anne, a teen-ager and an 8-year old even though I am turning 55 this month?

What can I say, my birthday is at the end of this month
and I am feeling it, believe me!!!!

And re:  The Scrapping the Music Anniverary challenge, I will be randomly picking a winner this weekend, and will post the winner here next Friday!
So stay tuned . . .
