Even though I'm a day late to enter the contest, I decided to try one of The Paper Girls challenges.  It was a wine-themed challenge and was really fun.

I decided to scrap pictures from one of my friend's 21st birthdays in keeping with the alcohol theme and also used the wine color and circles to mimic the tops of glasses.  I really like the glittery-ness and enjoy the way it turned out.

Finally, after making it through show week for Eastern's production of Mousetrap where I was costuming crew head and the next week of midterms, I have officially hit spring break and have had a little bit of time to scrapbook.

To start off this glorious time, I chose to do a Challenge YOUrself challenge.  The current theme was your own personal bucket list.  One of the top items on my bucket list is to become a published writer.  Lately I've been writing columns and drawing cartoons for the Daily Eastern News, the campus newspaper here at Eastern Illinois University.  I cut out the first article that they included my photo with, as well as my cartoon which was featured on the same day and scrapbooked the two!

The school's colors are royal blue and white so I chose to stick with those colors to make my articles pop.
