Is your album starting to fill up? Mine is. I'm excited that I've made it this far! LOL Many of you did not "kiss and tell" which is fine. Some things are too personal.
We've been a little low in participation, so for this week's question I'm adding a 8 x 8 Scrapbook Project Pad by Making Memories from the 5th Avenue collection. You can see the 5th Avenue collection from Making Memories here. The 5th Avenue Project Pad will be RAKed only if we get at least 10 layouts posted. So if you know anyone on the "52 Wall" to the right...give them a jingle!
"Anything worth doing, is worth doing right,"
"When the going gets tough, the tough get going,"
"If you tell a lie, your nose with grow!"
I've heard these quotes and many more throughout my life. Some did stick with me and others I out grew! :} There are many things I've learned in this life to date. If I had to narrow it down to the 5 most important lessons in my life it would be the hardest thing to do. I've heard it said "Remember in the Darkness what you learned in the Light." We learn so much of our life when things get tough and we shed the old and add a new lesson that changes our lives. So here's the Question for Week 14.
What 5 Lessons Have you Learned in Life?
Here is my answer:
Keep your family close
I am unique and I want my uniqueness to shine!
It's God's love and grace that directs my path.
Do my Best

I have to tell you how hard our winner this week worked. She caught up on at least 6 or 7 questions and posted them all this week. You should really go and see this remarkable person's work. Go back to the comment section and check out Marla's work. Congratulations Marla for you hard work and for being this week's recipient of our RAK. Send me your snail mail.
FYI: I now only have two RAKs I have not mailed, last week's winner and this week's winner. I had so much to mail from the Chocolate Celebration and a few other RAKs I was a bit scared to ask hubby to mail more. But this is a new week! LOL
If there is a question that you personally have a problem with, I encourage you to do a layout with journaling about something specific you want to add to your book.
Remember next week's RAK and "I Dare You to Be Yourself!"
1. God's desire to help me learn life lessons
2. God's abundance in my life
3. That God's love is not dependant on whether I feel like it or not
4. Mentors who remind me of God's love
5. Friends to whom God placed in my life for my pleasure and fulfillment.
