Hiking! The Paper Loft June Sketch Challenge

I've been such a lazy Blogger lately!!!  That being said, I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself in many regards and also making attempts to live as stress free as humanly possible. I know there is no life without some degree of stress, however if you are aware of the source(s) of your greatest stress and eliminate it, it is important to do that! For things that you can't avoid, you need to use your coping skills to deal with it effectively.....and then there are habits that you can adapt to relieve your stress levels on a more general level. I've currently taken up Yoga, which forces me to be more mindful of relaxing. Looking forward at some point to get the go ahead for Hot Yoga, but right at the moment I will stick with the more gentler forms such as Yin and Sama Set

If you have any great ideas with regard to stress management, please share! I can use all the help I can get {heart}.

I enjoyed making this layout for the Paper Loft June Challenge using Papers from The Great Outdoors!

Have Broom, Will Travel...Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge

Hi! Long time no see~ I've been busy trying to get my health in tip top shape!!!! I've done a little creating, but I'm holding on to those projects for just a bit longer!

Today's challenge over at IO Stamps is a Travel Challenge

Are we there yet???

With this Witchy Poo, I'm sure we'd be there in no time!!!

I don't have a lot of Travel stamps, but I have this awesome sentiment 
I have also been hoarding papers etc... from the Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz collection

I paired the Brick Stamp with the Graphic 45 chipboard and paper to create this fun and easy card!
