I'm Running in Circles!!!!

It's time for another fabulous challenge with the Pals Paper Arts!!!   This week we are featuring some of my favorite colors!!  Woo hoo!!!   Also this week, my daughter and I are off to Bellingham, Washington to go to orientation at Western Washington University.  Needless to say, we were "Running in Circles" trying to get ready!!!  LOL!!  We wanted to take as much as we could to put into storage since we aren't driving her to school.  So between shopping for school, getting cards and posts ready, packing......we literally kept feeling like we were turning circles!!!   So what a better theme for today's post right?  LOL!!  Now I realize this is my third card using the stamp set the "Perfect Blend" in the past few weeks.  However, I just LOVE this set!! I can't get enough!!

Here's my card below:

Here's a closer look:

This card was so much fun to make with all the circles and different layers of colors!!  The coffee cup is whimsical and evokes thoughts of yumminess inside.  Latte or Cappuccino anyone? Mmmmmm...

This week's "Just A Thought"........

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Every day we face struggles and challenges that we ponder whether we are going to get through.  Sometimes that can be truly a loss of some sort from a job change or friends and family.  However, usually it's the little stuff that can really pull you down if you're not careful.  Like me running in circles getting ready for this trip.  It was amazing how you get yourself all worried and twisted up.  For me, I was fretting about our trip and getting ready for my daughter to "visit" the University.  She wasn't even going to stay....she's coming back!!!  I was just running in circles worrying about what if I forget something.  Was it really going to be the end of the world?  No.  In the end I had to just "dance" in the rain and allow the storm to play out.  There was nothing I could do about this anxiety, worry and flood of emotions.  I just had to embrace the changes and understand this is "Life".  So my friends, remind me of these very words when I take her in September and leave her.  Oh my..........
